There are three types of products that you can create a subscription with.
- Product - this is the main product that will show up in your online store.
- Addon - this is a priced addon that can only be purchased together with a regular product (eg: a weekly carton of eggs addon can be associated with a CSA share at a farmers market).
- Modifier - this is a non-priced modification that you can make on a product. An example of a modification could be the type of grind for a coffee bean delivery program.
To start, navigate to the Products section of the dashboard and tap on the New + button to add a product. You’ll have the option to select a product, add-on, or a modifier. Select the product option.
Now there are three steps to add the product to your online store.
Step 1: Product details
- Add the internal product name. This is used for you to identify the product later on in the dashboard.
- Add a product title that’ll be displayed in the online store.
- Add a product description.
- Add a photo of the product.
- Click next to go to the pricing step.
Step 2: Pricing
- Select the schedule that you’d like to apply to the product.
- If you selected No schedule as a frequency, then add the number of orders that should be fulfilled with each subscription (eg: write 4 in this box if you’re selling a 4-loaf bread subscription).
- If your subscription has a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or custom schedule then you don’t need to include the number or items since that’s automatically calculated when you set the schedule duration.
- Add a one-time payment price. The one-time payment price is the amount charged to the customer when they sign up and each time the subscription renews.
- Optionally, you can add a custom label to the price.
- Click next to go to the addons step.
Step 3: Addons
- This step is only relevant when adding a regular product, not an addon or a modifier.
- You’ll see a list of the available addons on the final step of creating the product.
- Check the box for any relevant addon(s) that you’d like to offer as part of the subscription.
Nice! You’ve successfully added your first subscription to your online store.
