Adding Subscription Plans to a Product Variant

Once you have one or more subscription plans, they can be added to product variants. (If you don’t already have a subscription to work with, you can see how to define a subscription plan here.)

Click on the (...) button on the top-right corner of the variant you want to modify, then choose Edit.

Scroll down to the Subscriptions section and click the plus sign button (+). You can then choose one of your existing subscription plans from a drop-down menu.

From here, you can configure subscription pricing and (optionally) metered variables specific to this product variant.

  • Initial period. If the subscription plan has an initial period, you can use the +Add initial period button to set the price(s) for that period. (Use 0 if you intend for it to be free.)
  • Recurring period. Click into each currency box to type in the price that will be paid each period.
  • Metered variable tier type. If the subscription plan has metered variables, click on the Tier type label to choose either Graduated or Volume.
  • Metered variable tiers. Click the plus sign button (+) to add tiers for pricing. Once at least 2 tiers exist, you’ll be able to adjust the values between each tier by typing into the From column on the second tier onward. Use the (...) button on the right to remove tiers.

You can add as many subscription plans to a product variant as you like. For instance, you may want to offer monthly and yearly subscription options. Use the plus sign button (+) in the bottom-left corner of the Subscriptions section to add more plans. To remove subscription plans, click the X in the upper-right corner of the subscription window.
