Use Jigoshop for Subscriptions and Membership websites

Posted in Extensions and tagged , , , on by .

It’s now easy to create Subscription and Membership sales and offers with the new Subscriptions extension for Jigoshop. Offer a subscription for digital or physical products, and add customers into specific memberships based on their purchases.

The Subscriptions extension is based on Membership Groups. Customers can purchase access to these either as a specific Subscription product, or they can be automatically added when they purchase a normal product. Subscriptions are based on an optional setup fee and recurring payments, which can be set daily, weekly, monthly, annually or use custom intervals, such as every 15 days.

Meanwhile customers who purchase normal products can be automatically given access for an unlimited time to a members group for their single payment, enabling you to give them bespoke information and offers. You could also use it to supply specific private information, or build a private community around your products.

After naming your new group and setting permissions, you can then create either a normal product which gives access for a one-time fee, or a subscription product which can include a set-up fee along with recurring billing. From that point, any new page you create in WordPress can be limited only to members of that group.

In addition, you can view the details for all subscribers via an overview screen which displays payment status alongside other information, including overdue payments, active and inactive subscribers, and cancellations.

You can also set the timing of automated access to groups, as early as when as order is processing, or when orders are completed etc.

Included in the download are two additional extensions which are required by Subscriptions, so you’ll also be able to install Jigoshop Groups and the Groups Subscriptions Framework.

Offering subscriptions and membership services with Jigoshop eCommerce for WordPress just got a lot easier!
