WordPress.com is preparing a feature for subscriptions (donations and recurring payments) on WP.com sites. ๐Ÿ’ณ

Automattic Happiness Engineer Maria Gรณrska posted a link on Twitter for the beta program sign up form and is looking for feedback, especially from “independent content creators on what features they would be interested in.”

๐ŸŽฉ Hat tip to Travis Northcutt for sharing this in Post Status Slack.

Some people noted a recent pull request with a couple of screenshots that introduces a membership button block to Jetpack. It “essentially will be a recurring donation button.” The initial commits for this feature came about a year ago, but there's been a lot of recent activity around it.

A membership block appears in the changelog for Jetpack 7.3 too.
