Hi @farkhanda ,
Just a suggestion: Please consider offering 2 types of membership plans:

a) monthly recurring plans (with auto-debit) [existing option]

b) one-year membership (pre-payment for a year, with email reminder to renew when the subscription is about to expire. Hence no auto-debit). [new option]

(This will be in addition to the one-time donation option that you already have on the donation page.)

The roll-out of the new rules has been chaotic so far, and I fear that people may in general be turned off auto-debit because of this. (Not all banks are ready and some auto-debits are continuing uninterrupted despite the new rules!)

All the best!
