If you're editing the product and it has been purchased at least once you'll see the following message at the top of the product dialog:
This indicates that certain properties of the product have been locked to avoid accidental editing. If your site has been running for a while and this product has been purchased numerous times it's usually best not to edit these locked properties. In this case, it's best to create a new product with the new configuration and use it in addition to the current product. However, if you're just working on building your site or not a lot of customers have purchased the product then you can click to unlock the properties and edit them directly.
IMPORTANT: When you edit a product that has already been purchased, the changes will only effect new customers who buy the product going forward. Existing customers who have already purchased the product will be unaffected by the changes.
- After configuring the product, click the button to save your settings.

|Free Trial or Paid Trial|
Check the check box to include a trial period for this product.
If you checked the box, you may enter a price to charge for the trial. Enter a price of 0.00 if you wish to create a free trial. Then enter the number of days, weeks, months or years the trial period should last. These settings can be used to create an "introductory price" that will change at a later date.
|Limit Purchase of Trial Product|
Checking this option instructs MemberMouse to only allow each member to purchase the trial once. If this is checked, the second time a member attempts to purchase this product they will be redirected to the checkout page and instructed to purchase the alternate product.
If you checked the box, an Alternate Product drop down will be displayed. This is the product that members will be instructed to purchase following an attempt to purchase this trial product more than once.
|This is required. Enter the price you want to charge for this product.|
Check the box for Subscription if you would like the member's payment to recur for a certain period of time. Now, enter the Rebill Period in terms of days, weeks, months, or years to set a rebilling cycle that starts as soon as the member purchases the product.
To set up a Payment Plan or limit the amount of times a member is rebilled, check the box limit to and set the number of payments. Ex, if you want to bill a total of 3 times in monthly increments, set the limit to 3 payments and the rebill period to 1 month. That will bill the first time when the customer signs up (assuming there is not a trial), then the second charge 1 month later, and the final charge 1 month after that.
NOTE: If you are attaching this product to a membership level or bundle that is set to expire, you must limit the number of subscription payments to match the time to expiration. Otherwise the access will be revoked on the date of expiration, but the subscription payments will continue indefinitely.
Check the box if you need to ship a physical product and require a shipping address from the member.
