With the WooCommerce Subscriptions Plugin, you can introduce subscriptions for physical as well as types of virtual products and services in a large variety. Thus, creating and managing the products with the recurring payments is easy now.
Here are 5 types of subscriptions you can build within your WooCommerce store:
This is the most popular type of subscription, basically referring to the access control of your website- ‘members only’ features. Use the WooCommerce Memberships subscription plugin if you have a website with parts that can be accessed by registered users.
Sell downloadable products based on subscriptions. You can sell all sorts of items, such as ebooks, pdfs, software licenses, on a recurrent basis.
Offer your customers online services they can benefit from recurrently. Make subscription plans, let customers sign up for it and then choose their plan to continue using your service.
You can offer the possibility for automatic renewal of subscriptions, where the customer is not asked for renewal confirmation. In this case you need a payment gateway that allows scheduled payments.
This type of subscription needs customer’s permission for renewal. The subscription will not happen until the customer confirms the renewal and payment.
Using Subscriptions in your website is very useful, but you might want to consider the following:
Offer free trials to increase trust of your customers and boost the conversion rates
Offer subscribers special discounts on their payments or sign-up fee
Consider that some customers might prefer not to be tied to one payment provider. Give them multiple options.
Offer your customers a secure environment for recurring payments.
It might come in handy to use managed hosting, thus getting rid of all maintenance problems such as updates and security.
