Unleash the power of recurring revenue with Subscriptions. Offer subscription packages to your valuable courses and earn more revenue for longer.
1Go to Financial -> Manage Subscriptions from your admin menu.
Here is a sneak preview of the page:
2 To create a new plan, press the "Create subscription plan" button on the topbar of the page.
3 On the next window that opens you can edit your new subscription:
a) Name your Subscription plan.
b) You can either choose an existing plan from Stripe (to create plans in Stripe have a look at this screencast), or simply create a new one by setting the price and the interval of this subscription (time between billing occurrences).
c) Write your Subscription description so learners will know what this plan is all about.
d) Now you can select which courses this subscription will include.
e) A subscription can also have a trial period for which you can adjust the trial days.
f) You can either keep this subscription as a draft (not accessible to students) for further editing or make it public.
g) You can specify the order in which your subscription plans will appear in both your plan authoring page and the starting page of your learners.
h) Don't forget to click on the "Save" button otherwise your changes will be discarded. Keep in mind that you can also collect user's credit card before the trial initiates.
4 In the authoring menu of the subscriptions page there are some options as well under the "Actions" column:
- You can further edit an already created plan by clicking on "edit properties".
- A subscription can become archived which means that it will not be available anymore for future purchase but those already subscribed will keep renewing their subscription as well as having access to the plan. To do that simply click on "archive subscription".
- You can also edit the page of each subscription separately by clicking on "edit subscription page".
5 This is how your subscriptions menu will look to your learners.
-Every subscription plan is a link to the subscription plans page where your learners can see a detailed overview about all your plans.
They select the plan they want and they subscribe to it! Piece of cake right?
- A subscription can also contain private courses which will not be shown at all to those who have not bought them yet.
- Users can be manually enrolled and unenrolled to subscriptions. For a manually enrolled user, the author also defines the duration of subscription access (the relevant fees are being charged).
