Is there a way to offer customers the first-month free on a Secure Zone membership and have their paid subscription start automatically on day 31? I understand how to set up a second form for a trial membership that expires after a month and then have people sign up for continued access but I'd like to collect the customer's credit card info up front and just delay billing until the first day of the second month.
I was stumbled upon this post -- http://forums.adobe.com/message/4238798 -- which seems like maybe it would work but I'm hoping someone can tell me if it's possible before I try implementing the JS and testing it out.
I believe that this article may help http://kb.worldsecuresystems.com/230/bc_2303.html#main_Achieving_this_ with_the_System
Unfortunately, that doesn't help me because I already know how to set up a trial membership in that way. What I'm trying to do is offer the first month free with a PAID membership. So the person would commit to becoming a member up front and enter their credit card info into the initial membership signup form but wouldn't be billed until the 2nd month. Is there any way to accomplish that?
There's no way to accomplish that. You can not process $0 order and still setup the recurrence and get the token from the payment gateway. It has to be > $0. At least $0.01.
