Subscriptions, for Repeating Costs

If you have a business which charges ongoing or recurring prices, you have a great business!

Subscription prices can be helpful if, for example, you’re quoting a $50 amount every month. Displaying a total of $50 per month, for 24 months, would be more desirable to present to the customer as it's easier to digest, and it’s a smaller amount – rather than presenting a larger total amount of $1200 across the entire term.

One-off (fixed) prices can also be presented along with Subscription prices on a single Quote. Multiple totals will be displayed automatically depending on what Subscription frequencies and terms have been entered.

 

How to apply a Subscription:

  1. Editing a Price Item, select 'Subscription – Repeating Cost' (under 'Options').
  2. Choose Week, Month or Year. Optionally change the “every” value (default is '1').
  3. Optionally add a duration. Use this if the pricing is based on a specific length of time.

You'll see an additional total display for your Subscription pricing.

Example 5:
All costs up front (no Subscriptions, with a single total)

This example has one-off costs combined with on-going costs to show a single grand total. Using Text Items (to act as Headings) and Subtotals to separate the two types of costs.
