It allows you to configure various terms to accept subscription payments. Users also have the choice of making the full subscription if they don’t prefer the recurring method.

Recurly Subscription Plugin Setup

Subscriptions are accepted via Recurly. So you need to specify your Recurly account sub domain, API key, private key, subscription amount, currency and Recurly plan in the settings once you have installed the plugin:
