Subscription Customization plugin

Overview #

The Subscription Customization plugin lets WooCommerce store owners manage subscriptions and present them in a better way. For example, you can improve your Subscription cancellation process by enabling your buyers to tell about why they are not interested in the subscription anymore.

Besides the above, the plugin also lets you do more useful subscription-related tasks. You can:

  • Add one or multiple products to your existing subscription.
  • Convert a normal product into a subscription-based product.
  • Let your subscribers change the next payment date for the subscription.
  • Specify the email templates (for admin and subscribers) related to payment change date.
  • Add sender name and email for subscription emails.

Working in collaboration with your general WooCommerce > Subscription settings, the Subscription Customization Plugin – Booster will let you leverage multiple benefits, including:

  • Analyzing the reason for subscription cancellation (and acting upon the same);
  • Helping you satisfy your (current and future) buyers as you can improve your store’s products/processes as per the inputs received;
  • Adding the functionality to enable product-wise subscriptions in your store. It will act as an extra stream of revenue for your e-commerce business.
