What are subscriptions?



Subscription is a powerful tool to improve customer repeat rates. When a customer subscribes to a product or service, their card details are saved by Shopify and they are billed automatically basis the billing frequency defined in the selling plan.

The benefit of a subscription is that instead of buying one product multiple times and going through the entire checkout process, again and again, your loyal buyers can just subscribe to your product and get it delivered to them automatically at frequent intervals, say every month or every week.



Types of subscriptions



There are several different types of subscription models that you can implement with Loop. Here’s a table with links to guides that will get you set up on anything of your choosing

How can I offer only-members type experience to my subscribers, like special discounts, sales only available to them, early access, etc?
