Setting Up Subscriptions

Convert bundles, into a recurring subscription.

Overview

Bundle Builder empowers you to control the pricing of your bundles with our discount and subscription options. To edit the purchase options on your bundle:

  1. Go to Bundles.

  2. Select the bundle that you would like to edit.

  3. Select Pricing.

Purchase Options

Under Bundles > Pricing, you can choose how often your customers receive the bundle through Purchase options:

  • One-time purchase only - the bundle acts as normal and remains a one-time purchase. There are no further ways to customise with this option, and customers will not be able to select a subscription with this method.

  • Subscription only - customers can only select a subscription option.

  • One-time purchase & Subscription - one-time purchase with an optional subscription, selected by customers.

Subscription Options

Subscription Frequency

If you select either Subscription only or One-time purchase & Subscription, you will be able to select your Subscription frequency options. These can be set to days, weeks, or months.

Example: How often would you like your coffee delivered?

Subscription Frequency 1 > Every Three Days Subscription Frequency 2 > Every Week Subscription Frequency 3 > Every Month

Once the customer has added their chosen items to the bundle, the subscription options can be selected from the menu.

Subscription Discount

The Subscription discount can be set to the following options:

  • Fixed price - a set price regardless of how many products are in the bundle.

  • Fixed discount - a fixed figure is taken from the bundle and applied as a discount.

  • Percentage discount - a percentage is taken off the bundle price.

Invoice reminders

If you would like to enable automated email reminders to customers who have not paid an invoice after a certain period of time, select Send invoice reminders.

The customer will receive an invoice based on the interval selected when the bundle was ordered.

Please note that the customer has to pay again manually each time.

The option to make the Subscription payment automatic is something we certainly intend to build into future app version - we are waiting on Shopify expanding their current system to allow for better integrations for apps such as Bundle Builder.

Please see [Update] Checkout and subscriptions for further information on this.

Invoice reminders are sent to the customer:

  • Three days before the due date if the invoice interval is more than week

  • One day before the due date if the invoice interval is seven days or less

  • A final reminder on the actual due date.

If you would like to receive an email notification whenever an invoice is sent to a customer, select Receive notifications when invoices are sent - this will be sent to your storefront email address.

Cancelling a Subscription

If your customer wishes to cancel a subscription, they can do so through their invoice emails. These will contain a link to the Subscription Settings page, where the customer can view the details of their subscription and cancel it if they wish.

When a subscription is cancelled, both you and your customer will receive confirmation emails.
