You can add a product to your WooCommerce shop to offer a subscription. Then, to provide your exclusive content, there is a shortcode to check the subscription.
For the product, choose the “Monthly subscription” type and provide your desired subscription duration. The duration of the subscription is set in months and calculated from today, or added to active subscription if applicable. There can be up to one subscription per user on the WordPress site.
For the content, there is a shortcode to check the subscription. It uses an opening tag and a closing tag. You will need both – the content in between the tags will be shown (or not shown respectively). There are four options to display content („active“, „ended“, „never“ and „inactive“). The options are passed in the opening tag using the subscription parameter.
Further information is available in the documentation.
