What are the common applications?

Offering Free trial

You can offer free trials with this changing discount option, by setting a 100% discount for a specific number of successful payments and then changing to 0(or else) afterward.

Encouraging customers to subscribe

You can set a higher discount for the earlier payments to encourage your customer to subscribe and increase your subscription conversion rate.

Extra expenses in the first payment

If you want your customer to pay an extra fee in the first payment of their subscription, include this extra fee in your product price. Then in Subify, you can set the initial subscription discount lower than the second discount, to get to result.

How can I set a Changing Discount on my subscriptions?

You can access this option from the Subscription plans> Selling plan > "Change discount after specific number of payments".

Follow these steps:

1- Go to the Subscription Plans tab.

2- Create a new Subscription plan.

3- Add the products that you like.

4- Click on the Add Selling plan.

5- Set the frequencies that you want.
