Accelerated Subscriptions Time Table

The supported subscription periods are weekly, biweekly, monthly, bimonthly, quarterly, half-yearly, and yearly. In the past, someone had to wait for the complete subscription time in order to test their subscriptions. That means for weekly, they would have to wait 1 week to finish the test, for monthly they would have to wait 1 month, and so on. Now, you can test your subscription at an accelerated rate. Here are the current options.

Actual Timeline Accelerated Timeline
1 week 5 minutes
2 weeks 5 minutes
1 month 10 minutes
2 months 15 minutes
3 months 20 minutes
6 months 25 minutes
1 year 30 minutes

For example, with accelerated subscriptions enabled you can test a bimonthly subscription, which used to take 2 months, in 15 minutes.

Other considerations

  • Accelerated subscription will be cancelled after 4 renewals to avoid infinite renewals.
  • Free Trial subscriptions will be renewed in 5 mins, and will be canceled after one renewal.
  • Customers / Testers will not receive any mail regarding the cancellation.
