An update has been launched today that lets you set custom billing options:

1-6 weeks

1-6 months

1-6 years

Emilio: So we still can't enter the numbers ourselves, we have to use the options?

I also mentioned earlier that subscriptions for some services are on a 30-day (accounting-based) period, but that option is not available here.

I can immediately give an example.

The first of these options is the 30-day period.

観月唯: Hi, thanks for providing this example. For this update I wanted to keep the ranges to something "controllable" because of the way that Subly does the calculations.

It it seems that providing the option to set the cycle in days would be appropriate for your use case (It would still need to have limited options just to have more control) - What is the maximum number of days that would meet your needs? 31?

I'll revisit this once we launch custom categories and payment methods (in about 2 weeks)

Emilio: The example I gave of this site has four options for subscriptions: 30 days, 90 days, 180 days, and 360 days.

This corresponds to monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual subscriptions, but its calculation is based on 30 days rather than directly increasing in months.

So, assuming that the user is not allowed to enter the number of days, perhaps a new "30 days per month" checkbox could be added so that the calculation uses 30 days instead of months?

Emilio: Fantastic nice work, this is perfect for all my use cases.

In Taiwan, some monthly subscriptions are calculated with the next charge not directly in the month plus one, but 30 days later.

So, I hope you can add "n days" in the input field.
