Standard Subscription



These are the simplest and standard forms of subscriptions available. Your customer subscribes to your product and service and it gets delivered to them at frequent intervals say every 2 weeks or one month, and you get paid with the same frequency.

Prepaid Subscription



_IMPORTANT :_ Please be informed that as of December 18, 2023, the option to create prepaid selling plan has been temporarily suspended as we are soon coming up with our new Prepaid 2.0 experience. Any existing merchant already using Prepaid, will continue to have access for the same without any disruption.

In a Prepaid subscription, the user will have to make the payment upfront before availing the product or the service. Prepaid subscriptions can be set up to be delivered weekly/monthly/yearly but billed once every few cycles. For example, Amazon Prime membership is a prepaid subscription. You have to make the payment upfront, and then the product/service gets delivered based on the delivery interval.

Gift Subscription



Gift subscriptions are the kind of subscriptions where your customer can buy or subscribe to any product or service for a friend or a dear one. The gift subscription is an extension of Prepaid Subscriptions where the customer is essentially purchasing this subscription for someone else but paying by themselves. These subscriptions are usually set up to expire after a predefined number of orders.

Build a Box



Using the Build a Box type of subscription, the user has the ability to pick and choose multiple products you want to subscribe to and add them all to a bundle (or a box!). These products are then delivered to the customer weekly or monthly or as and when the subscription gets renewed.

Trial Subscriptions



In a trial subscription, the user is given a product or a service for a trial period. They aren’t charged anything during this interval, only after the predefined interval, the user will be charged.

Subscription Journey



Subscription journeys are personalized subscriptions, where the user has a customized journey, and the products sent vary in each delivery. This can be implemented to improve customer retention by offering free products after X subscription orders.

Membership Subscription



Allow your customers to subscribe to a membership/loyalty club which can be set up to offer subscribers a different experience in the store. For example - a member could have completely different pricing for all their orders placed in the store. This approach ensures repeat purchases, brand loyalty and retention.
