Can I use only one product with multiple subscription plans in paypal


I have googled and can't seem to find an answer to my question.

On my site, It has a 'members' area. I offer three different types of subscriptions, monthly, every 6 months and yearly. I have set up three different subscription plans. One for each subscription type.

My Question: Can I use only a single product for all three subscription plans? Since the product is access to the 'members' area?

Good day @Davidwesa,


Thank you for posting to the PayPal community.


Yes, you can achieve this via PayPal Smart Subscription button and by offering "Trial" period 1 as (1 month) and "Trial" period 2 as (6 months)  & "Subscription" period as (Yearly).
