Subscription bags is the parent entity to subscription plans. It allows creating bags that can hold a single, or multiple, subscription plans in it, each bag with its own unique characteristics, like shipping address, payment method and more.
Subscription bags provide high level control to both the customer and the business defining the relationship between subscription plans. Below is a list of all characteristics of this feautre:
- Creation – An account’s first bag will be automatically created with the activation of their first subscription plan. From that moment on, all new subscription plans added to this account will, by default, be added to that same subscription bag. Customers can always create more bags in their control panels.
- Removal – Not like subscription plans, subscription bags remain active even if all their contents (subscription plans) have been cancelled or moved to another bag, and need to be manually deleted to remove them from the account.
- Unique Fields – Each subscription bag will hold a combination of Payment Method and Shipping Address that will apply to all subscription plans within it, as well as an editable Name, so the customer could recognize this bag.
- Invoicing – Grouping subscription charges into invoices will be determined by their subscription bag relationship. That means that each subscription bag equates to an invoice. If a customer has multiple subscription charges due on the same day, they will be split to separate invoices according to their subscription bags.
Creating a Subscription Bag
Creating a subscription bag is very similar to a checkout process, just without actually processing an order. The customer will select their desired Shipping Address, Insert/select the Payment Method and the matching Billing Address. Once completed, the bag will be available for the customer to view and interact with in their subscriptions interface.
“Add to Bag” Button
Rebillia provides a toggle-switch feature that allows customers to add a subscription plan to their bag collection directly from the PDP, without needing to complete a checkout process to subscribe to said plan. This feature provides another kind of control over the subscription, where the customer can select when they want their subscription to start, easily add more and more subscriptions to their bags while keeping all subscriptions organized, each in their respective bag.
