Offering subscriptions lets you sell products or services on a recurring basis. Depending on the subscription options you offer, your customers can choose to pay an agreed price for your product in a scheduled frequency. With Subscriptions from Gigrove, you can offer subscriptions on a daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis.
To create a subscription item:
- Go to “Add new item” page.
- Select “Subscriptions” from the item type list.
You will see a form which will allow you to set a recurring interval:
You can set a Sign-Up fee, which will act as the additional charge for starting of the subscription period.
Free Trial field allows you to set a test period, before the credit card gets charged.
In the Subscription price field, you can set the price and interval when the customer will be charged. For an example, if we set the price of “$9.99” and add the interval of “Every” and “Month”, the customer will be charged this cost on the monthly bases.
You can also optionally choose when you want the subscription to expire in the “Expire after” field.
