How to Set Up Subscription Plans with Trials in SureCart

SureCart makes selling stuff online super easy and helps you take care of your customers significantly.

One remarkable thing you can do with SureCart is make subscription plans for the stuff you’re selling.

You can even add a trial period. This means customers can try out your stuff before they subscribe, which could help you sell more.

But before you add a subscription, you must have a product ready. If you need help understanding how to create a product, click here to learn more.

How Do Trial Subscriptions Work in SureCart?

You might be wondering how a trial subscription works. It’s quite simple:

  1. People choose your product and go to checkout. They have to enter their payment details, but they won’t be charged anything yet.
  2. After checking out, their trial starts. They can use and enjoy your product without having to pay.
  3. Once the trial is over, that’s when they start paying. The money is taken from the payment details they entered during checkout, which marks their subscription’s start.
  4. Then, the subscription just keeps going like normal. This is what we call the subscription cycle.

Now, let’s start making a subscription plan with a trial period using SureCart!

How to add a subscription payment type

  • Inside your product, scroll down to the Pricing section.

When people buy your product, they will get to try your service for free for a limited time. Once the trial is over, their subscription will start right away.
