YITH WooCommerce Subscription API

FREE Plugin

The plugin provides a REST API endpoint for the YITH WooCommerce Subscription plugin.


This plugin provides a simple REST API for the popular WordPress plugin YITH WooCommerce Subscription. We have not tried to implement all plugin functionality in REST API, we just implemented endpoints required to check active user subscriptions.

As far as this plugin provides API for the YITH WooCommerce Subscription plugin, it should be installed.

NB: We do not develop or maintain the YITH WooCommerce Subscription plugin. So, please do not report bugs and do not ask questions regarding that plugin.
PS: We are sure this REST API is incomplete, so feel free to suggest missed features.

Key features:

  • Check whether the user has an active subscription for the product or not.
  • List all user active subscriptions.
