Set up and Customise Subscriptions

This will guide you through designing your subscriptions that you want available for readers to access your content.

To set up or edit your subscription options for readers, go to your WordPress admin dashboard and then to our plugin Feather. Here, click “Subscriptions” underneath (step 1 in picture blow).

Following steps:

a. Fill in the name of the subscription (e.g. “1 Month”).

b. Select your duration unit; this can be on a weekly, monthly or yearly basis.

c. Specify the length of the specified unit. For instance duration unit “weekly” with duration length “1” means you’re selling the subscription for 1 week. A duration unit with “monthly” and duration length “6” means the subscription will last for a period of 6 months.

d. Determine your price (€). The price you need to fill out is for the total duration of the subscription. If you sell a subscription for the duration of 6 months and the price per month of your subscription is €3,50, you should fill out the total, thus 6*€3,50 = €21.

By pressing “Add new” (see step 2 in picture below), you have now made a subscription option available for your readers.

Below is an example, where you can see how your admin settings are represented on the wallet:

When readers want to subscribe with their wallet, they can select their desired option and complete the payment. Readers get complete access to all articles you publish on your website for the chosen duration.

What happens when I edit a subscription option?

When you want to update a subscription option, please note that the updated option will only be available for readers who wish to buy a subscription after you’ve updated it. Those who have already subscribed to your original option will still be charged the original price and maintain their subscribed status.

When you want to delete a subscription option, please note that those who have already subscribed to that option will still be charged the original price and maintain their subscribed status.

How many subscription options can I set up?

You can make an unlimited number of subscription plans available for your readers to purchase.

💡PROTIP: optimise your subscription sales by designing your subscription plans the right way, and only set up a few plans!

👆NOTE: does having recurring subscriptions available for readers interest you? This is will be a premium feature, and is coming soon.
