Configuring gift plans

The Gift Subscription feature is now supported on Chargebee’s Checkout V3. 


  • On the checkout page, customers can purchase a gift subscription for someone by providing the contact details of the gift recipient with a personal message sent to them.

  • A gift notification email is sent to the recipient of the gift at the date and time chosen by the gifter.

  • A gift can be claimed by the recipient, from the gift notification email sent to them.

  • The Gift subscription is created in the “non-renewing” status and cancels automatically at the end of their term.

Enabling Gift Subscriptions

Gift Subscription - This feature is currently available on selective plans. Please refer to the plans and pricing page. If you are on our previous plans, then this feature is available on Scale and above plans.

The first step in setting up a Gift subscription is to enable it under Settings > Configure Chargebee > Billing LogIQ > Gift Subscriptions.

Next, configure the gift subscription settings under Settings > Configure Chargebee > Checkout & Self Service Portal.

Creating a Gift Plan

Now you can create a gift plan under Product Catalog > Plans > Create a New Plan > check the “This is a gift plan” checkbox as in the screenshot below.

Now this plan URL can be used to offer a gift plan on the checkout page.


  1. Gift subscriptions are only supported in the latest version of email notifications.

  2. You may prompt your gift recipients to sign-up for a regular subscription using the subscription cancellation reminder email.

  3. Gift subscriptions are only created on gift claims and are not affected by your calendar billing settings.
