Now that we've created your first billing model using sticky.io Subscriptions for BigCommerce, the next step is appending your billing models to your products!
Similar to deploying billing models, appending them to products can be done in just a few clicks.
Without further ado, let's begin!
Navigation to Subscription Products
To begin, from your storefront navigate over to Apps > My Apps > sticky.io > Subscription Products.
Here, merchants can get a direct view of all of their goods and services.
Appending Billing Frequencies to Products
It is important to note that appending billing frequencies to products can be done per product or in batches.
Appending Billing Frequencies Per Product
Once on the Subscription Products tab > navigate to the product that you would like to append a billing frequency > Manage Subscription > Manage.
Appending Billing Frequencies In Batches
Once on the Subscription Products tab > navigate to View > Change from 10 to 100 > under Create Subscription Frequencies > Checkbox ☐ > Manage Products.
Understanding the Manage Product User Interface
Now that we have our product or products selected and ready to append billing frequencies, let's take a moment to understand user interface elements.
Subscription Type: A combination of your products and billing models. Today, the sticky.io app through BigCommerce supports the Standard offer. To learn more about other offer types that will be supported in later releases, click or tap here.
Subscription Frequencies: The billing models or frequencies at which you intend to bill your consumers. If you missed it, we covered Subscription Frequencies in Step 1, click or tap here.
It is important to note: Products can support more than one subscription frequency. As such, we could offer a product as a One Time Purchase or Monthly Subscription.
Adjusting Product Price Per Billing Frequency
After selecting your Subscription Frequencies, a new table will appear below. This enables merchants to adjust price points respective to the billing frequency as an incentive to increase continuity conversions.
Add: Add a dollar or percentage amount to the product price. Increasing the product price of the base product for a straight sale option can be a huge incentive to customers to make the leap to one of your continuity models and in turn, likely saving some money in the long run.
Remove: Remove a dollar or percentage amount to the product price. In our example, we're removing $3.50 from the $15.00 product price equating to $11.50.
This is often referred to as 'Subscribe & Save' among the industry and can be a huge incentive to driving continuity with your goods and services.
Once you're satisfied with making adjustments to the price points, click Save Changes. If successful, you'll be presented with: Product subscriptions saved successfully screen.
Congratulations, you're officially an expert on adding billing models to your products using sticky.io Subscriptions for BigCommerce!
