Go to Plans and then select Create Plan.
By default, all plans will be in United States Dollars (USD). Suppose your account is configured to transact in other currencies. In that case, you can use the Profile ID selector to choose a billing currency for your plan. Each plan is limited to one currency, so you will need to create additional plans if you wish to bill customers in multiple currencies.
To create a plan, complete the information indicated in the Create a Plan Fields table below and select Create.
Required if more than one profile exists.
If you have more than one Qualpay profile, you’ll need to select a profile for the plan. You will not see a profile selection option if you only have one profile.

If you would like to bill your customer on their subscription creation “anniversary date,” use the Subscription Start Date selector.
