Previous Step Step 1 — Setting up Billing Frequencies

Now that we've created your first billing model using 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!

In a hurry? Watch our Onboarding & Training Specialist guide you through appending your Billing Frequencies to your products. As well as review alterations that can be made to how they're presented on your Product Display Page in just 4:34.

Navigation to Subscription Products

To begin, from your storefront navigate over to Apps > My Apps > > 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.

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 Subscriptions for BigCommerce!
