Freemius enables you to easily offer Free Trials for your users, with or without requiring a payment method. Offering a Free Trial may help you increase your product’s distribution and sales. Check out The Ultimate Guide To Free Trials For Premium WordPress Plugins And Themes.
Supported Trials Types

“Paid Trial” – A Free Trial With A Payment Method
You can set a trial period in your plan settings and turn on the “Require Credit Card or PayPal” option.
How To Activate & Use Trials
Setting up a trial is done from within each specific product plan configuration settings:
- You can choose one of the following optional trial periods: No trial, 7 Days, 14 Days, 30 Days
- If you wish to require a payment method, switch the “require credit card or paypal” option on:
- Once you add a trial to a plan the SDK integration snippet will change slightly, so you’ll need to update the snippet in your code. Note that users who have already opted-in will also be exposed to in-dashboard trials, even if you don’t deploy a new version with the snippet update.
- To activate the trial in the Freemius Checkout on your site you’ll need to add
trial: trueto the open method.
We currently do not support trials without a payment method outside the WordPress Admin.
This means that even if you set a trial without a payment method, it will require a payment method when selling from your website.
