GrazeCart's subscription module is built from the ground up and completely integrated into your existing site. This means you can provide your customers compelling subscription offers, without creating an inventory and fulfillment nightmare!

This article provides a high-level overview of the most critical elements you'll need to configure in order to get started.

Repeating Schedules

A repeating schedule is the core engine behind your subscription program. These schedules are different from the legacy Custom Schedules in the sense that they force a consistent delivery frequency (weekly, monthly, etc.). 

Customers will only be able to participate in your subscription program IF they are shopping under a delivery method (location/zone) that is assigned to a Repeating Schedule.

Subscription Incentives

There are two primary ways you can provide your customers an incentive to subscribe to an order. You can offer a subscribe & save discount, and/or include a promo/free item with each order.

Subscribe & Save Discount

This discount will provide the customer a percentage savings on each order based on what you determine. The savings is displayed on their cart when subscribe & save is selected and also at checkout, to help inspire a high adoption rate.

Promo/Free Item Promotion

You also have the ability to provide your customers with a free item with each subscription order. As seen in the image above, the value of this free item is also in the customer's cart and at checkout.

Inventory Timing

The inventory timing setting gives you the control to determine when you want inventory to be consumed for subscription orders.

This setting also triggers your ongoing subscription confirmation emails and SMS notifications (if enabled).

Check out this article for more details on how inventory timing is configured.

Customer Communication

Subscription Portal

Once a customer subscribes to an order, they'll gain access to their subscription portal. This is where they'll go to get visibility on their next order, skip deliveries (if enabled), or cancel their subscription. 

Customers can add/remove items from their subscription order by shopping the store as normal.

Notifications

Email Notifications

With the subscription module, you have the ability to send segmented transactional emails to your subscription customers. These emails can also be equipped with merge tags, to communicate out-of-stock items, without your customers having to log into their portal.

Learn more about triggering subscription emails.

SMS Notifications

With the subscription platform, you can also enable global SMS text notifications to remind subscribers of upcoming orders. This allows you to stay proactive and help customers avoid any surprises.

Learn more about SMS notifications.

Display Messages

Finally, you can also add messages to your website in key places to communicate and sell your subscription program. For example, you have the ability to set up an HTML field at checkout which can be used to overcome objections, and remind your customers why they should subscribe.
