Subscription add-ons

Ever wondered if you could attach a one time product to a running subscription and it keeps renewing alongside it? Well, look no further, as we have introduced this feature with the latest Funnels update in order to expand and simplify the way you offer additional products with your main subscriptions. 😉

What are addons and how to enable them?

Addons are a feature which allows you to attach a one time product as part of a running subscription. This is extremely helpful if you wish to expand your offering without making any changes to an already existing subscription.

The way this can be attached is in multitude of ways, but most convenient way would be using the funnels feature with one of your pre, mid or post purchase offers.

Another important thing is that you have an option to add it only once or forever, meaning it would apply to a single renewal or indefinitely. 

The widget will be displayed after you've marked the option as checked.

How to add the addon item to customer's subscription through the customer profile?

If you wish to avoid having to set up funnels and one of the pre or post purchase offerings, then you would still be able to attach an addon via the customer pages.

This is done directly on the profile on the active subscriber like shown below:

A pop-up widget will appear and you simply need to choose the associated product which will be part of the subscription and it will apply from the next renewal going forward.

Addon will be visible on the customer pages as well as on the portal area like shown below where both the merchant on the admin and customer on the portal area will be able to manage it effortlessly.

How to add and manage addons through the customer portal area?

Customers will also be able to do this from their end which further simplifies the process. They would need to navigate to Subscriptions > Manage.

There would be a button as shown below which will trigger a widget which takes you through the process.After selecting the products you wish, the choice will be reflected on both the admin and the portal area and you'll be able to see the choice and remove if if needed.

What does quantity stand for? This simply means how many items of the one time product the customer will be receiving per shipment. (for example if you put 2 quantity once, this means only one shipment will be sent to the customer and the quantity of that shipment will be 2.)

How to include addons on the checkouts directly?

You'll be able to choose (subscribe) to the addon on the checkouts directly as shown below:

  • It requires you to add a one time product to the cart and it can be via the funnels, through regular add to cart functionality and so on.
  • If you toggle subscribe, the one time product will be added to the subscription you're purchasing and it will keep renewing as the sub renews.
