4 min read

Make sure to suspend pricing plans in the Wix dashboard, following the instructions below. Suspending subscription plans in the dashboard of your payment provider does not suspend clients' access to plan benefits and may cause issues later.

Suspending a membership plan or package

You can suspend a plan whenever you or your client require. This is useful if a client cannot use their plan temporarily through injury, travel or other reasons.
  • Suspending a plan automatically suspends access to any services you connected to the plan. This may include Wix Bookings services as well as access to Members-Only pages, blogs or forum posts. If your plan offers benefits not managed in your Wix dashboard, you may need to take action to stop access to those benefits.
  • You cannot suspend plans sold with Stripe before September 19, 2019.

To suspend a membership plan or package:

  1. Go to Subscriptions in your site's dashboard.
  2. Select the purchased plan you want to suspend.
  3. Click the Manage Subscription drop-down.
  4. Click Suspend Subscription.
  5. Click Yes, Suspend to verify.
  6. (Optional) Repeat steps 1 - 5 for other clients.
