A SIMPLE METHOD FOR SUSTAINED INCOME: SELLING PRODUCTS THROUGH SUBSCRIPTIONS
You can offer subscriptions for a wide range of products, including magazines, consultations, coaching courses, videos, audios, and more, allowing your customers to join a unique membership with your store as the central character.
Thanks to its seamless integration with YITH WooCommerce Membership, you can effortlessly create subscriptions for online products that will be exclusive to those who choose to purchase them, such as video courses, monthly podcasts, and more.
The trial mode grants your customers access to your products for a limited time, increasing their engagement with your store and potential purchases.
Moreover, the built-in reminder system of YITH WooCommerce Subscription will prompt your customers to renew their subscriptions, boosting your renewal rates.
Automatic renewal payments are supported with various payment methods, including PayPal standard, YITH WooCommerce Stripe (premium version), YITH WooCommerce Stripe Connect, and YITH PayPal Express Checkout for WooCommerce.
Users can link more than one subscription to the same account, and depending on the selected payment gateway, they can even add multiple subscriptions to the same cart. This feature is compatible with YITH Stripe Premium, YITH Stripe Connect, and YITH PayPal Express Checkout.
