InviteMember supports two types of free trials:
with credit/debit card upfront;
without credit/debit card upfront.
Setting a trial period
To set a trial period, open your plan settings and click Edit trial period:
With a credit/debit card upfront
By default, a trial period can only start with a credit/debit card upfront.
Please note that it will only work if two conditions are met:
the plan is recurring ("Recurring: ON" in plan settings);
the payment provider supports recurring subscriptions (Stripe/PayPal/Skrill/etc).
Otherwise, a free trial won't be offered.
For other payment methods (like CoinPayments, for example), please use the second mode described below.
Without a credit/debit card upfront
To make the free trial available without a credit card upfront, click Trial without card: OFF to set it to ON:
