WordPress.com is preparing a feature for subscriptions (donations and recurring payments) on WP.com sites. 💳
Automattic Happiness Engineer Maria Górska 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.”
🎩 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.
