Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to worry about meeting your monthly income goals from your shop? And you might be thinking that’s not doable. But looking at your business differently might be what will really help you reach your full potential. Making money doing what you love can be an incredibly rewarding experience . And you can spend more time capturing stunning visuals once you acquire an audience willing to pay for access to your premium grade collection of stock photos. To help you with this, we created the enterprise-level extension that allows you to sell monthly or yearly subscriptions to interested parties. The best part about running your own shop to sell images is the unrivalled autonomy you enjoy. Think of it like your own private iStockPhotos website where you set all prices and keep 100% of all sales revenue.
Design Exclusive Custom Offers
The key to earning more from your images is to offer visitors with more choice. Your customers will simply love what we have to offer. Here’s how it works. You can configure up to 5 monthly and 5 yearly subscription plans and can set download limits for each plan. When download limits are reached for each plan, new downloads are disabled until the next billing cycle and the customer is sent an email notification.
Easy Way To Profit From Recurring Billing
All plans come with automatic monthly or yearly recurring billing. Your customers will sign up to your website once and their accounts will be billed each month or year until they either cancel their accounts or payment fails. The more your store grows, the greater value it brings to your customers.
Beautiful, Simple Shopping Experience
This extension integrates with the existing Quick View dialog popup so that your subscription plans are easy to sign up.
Sell Both Single Products and Subscriptions
Still want to offer single product sales? No problem! Simply set the Selling Preferences option to enable both single product and subscription sales.
Store owners can configure up to 4 different outgoing email notifications sent to buyers including:
- Activation Email – Sent when accounts becomes active.
- Expiration Email – Sent when subscriptions expire.
- Download Limit Reached – Sent when download limits are reached.
- Cancellation Email – Sent when accounts are cancelled or billing fails.
P.S.: Combining this extension with the Sell Media Mailchimp extension is a great idea to boost sales.
Create An Impact With Next-level Marketing and Up-Sell Emails
Leverage emails to cross-market and up-sell customers on various plans and store offerings. For example, when download limits are reached, you can use this opportunity to cross-market and up-sell higher level plans via the notification email. When an account is cancelled, you can send the customer a discount code asking them to rejoin. It’s proven that these transactional emails have a much higher engagement level than any email marketing campaign, so don’t let this opportunity go to waste.
The Benefits of Selling Subscription Plans
Offering subscription plans turns a one-time product sale into a recurring sale. The more photos and videos you add, the more valuable your service is for your customers. The key benefits of selling subscription plans include:
- Provides your customers with greater value.
- Builds brand loyalty.
- Increases revenue.
- Offers you greater control and autonomy over your business
- Lets you offer your prospects with more choice
