Using the Pay What You Want add-on for Paid Member Subscription you can let your subscribers set the price they want to pay for a subscription plan.
The subscription standard price will be used as the recommended price and you can also set a minimum and maximum amount.

Once downloaded, you can install the add-on as a normal WordPress plugin, by uploading the .zip file in your WordPress Admin > Plugins > Add New > Upload Plugin.

How to use the add-on
After activating the add-on, simply create a new subscription plan by navigating to Paid Member Subscriptions > Subscription Plans and clicking “Add New” button.
Here under the subscription plan details, you’ll notice a checkbox from where you can “Enable Pay What You Pricing“. By checking it you will be shown a few settings for the variable pricing option:
- Minimum Price – the min price allowed for this subscription plan, leaving it empty will set the min price equal to the standard subscription price
- Maximum Price – the maximum price allowed for this subscription, leaving it empty will imply no max price is set
- Label – text that will be displayed on the front-end, after the subscription plan name and before the price input
