Does anyone know how to make the trial period last. I am starting up a site and wou;d like to offer a 6 month free to the first x number of sign-ups.
I want to put the free period at the end of the toatl subscription period so eople won't sign, use the 6 months and them cancel.

Do you want to make it so that when the subscriber cancels, they will have 6 months remaining to their subscription? That would not be possible. But I think that might confuse customers since when they cancel, they are usually done with the service. You might consider processing a credit back to them after a certain number of months. Or set up an initial 6 month period for $49 which recurs at $25 per month (using your own amounts, of course).

No I don't want them to have 6 months left, the subscription would go away. I just want to avoid people signing up, using the 6 free months and then cancelling, and thus I never really get any dollar return.

I'm not sure how you could structure that.
