One time purchase is a single purchase made by a customer.

It allows the customer to buy the item once.

One time purchase gives the customer the option to purchase an item not as a subscription.

A one time purchase option can be displayed alongside subscription plans on the product page.

When creating a subscription plan group, you’ll have the choice to add “One time purchase” as an option.

You can limit your subscription products to being sold only as a subscription or enable both subscription and one-time purchases.

In Ongoing App:

This feature is currently only available on the Ongoing app extension that appears under the Subscriptions sections of your Shopify product page. See below for details.

On Shopify Admin:

  1. From Shopify admin, click Products

2. Click the product you want to manage the subscription of

3. Select whether to sell the product as a subscription only:

  • To sell the subscription as a subscription only, check Only allow purchase of this product as a subscription

  • To sell the product as one-time purchases as well as subscriptions, uncheck Only allow purchase of this product as a subscription
