Documentation | Subscriptions
Subscriptions can be setup for your organisation in many ways. As we have been building membership systems for a variety of organisations who have had complex subscription models; you can be sure that mition can cater for your subscription process too.
Types of subscriptions you can setup.
Fixed Term Subscriptions
If your subscriptions start on a particular day of the year and end on a particular day of the year, use this option by setting the Fixed Start Date and Fixed End Date on the subscripting price.
If your subscriptions start for that user the day they join, then use this option by leaving the Fixed Start Date and Fixed End Dates blank on the subscription price.
It is also quite common to have a mixture of some fixed terms and some rolling subscriptions.
The duration, price, welcome email, auto assigned roles are all controlled in the Subscription Admin section too. So you can customise the security users get when they first sign up.
If you would like to prevent users from accessing information or their membership features until they have paid, simply set the option to " No access until paid" on the subscription and set the grace period on the subscription price to 0 days. Setting the grace period to 7 days would allow the user to access membership features/information for 7 days and then enforce the paywall.
There are several automated reminders you can setup for Subscriptions too, for when the subscription is about to expire. So make sure you look at the Auto Reminders Section.
