Woo Subscriptions makes it possible to capture residual revenue by offering subscription products in your WooCommerce store. But what happens if your customer wants to purchase a subscription for someone else?
The customer could enter the recipient’s address for a physical product so they receive deliveries, but what about virtual products, like services or memberships? And what happens if the recipient moves house – how will she update her shipping address?
Gifting for Woo Subscriptions allows one person to purchase a subscription product for someone else. It then shares the subscription between the purchaser and recipient giving them both the ability to manage the subscription for the rest of its life cycle. That means less headaches for you and your customers when something needs to change on the subscription.
With Gifting, customers can choose to purchase subscriptions for others by entering the recipient’s email address on the product, cart, or checkout pages. The extension will take care of the rest, including on-boarding the recipient with your store, as well as managing shared control over the subscriptions, and access to orders related to it.
Bottom line: sell more subscriptions, with less hassle. Give your customers a way to purchase and manage subscriptions for others. It’s a gift that keeps on giving for your customers, their recipients, and your store’s revenue.
Subscription Gifting Features
To gift a subscription, your customer only needs to enter the recipient’s email address. The Gifting extension will take care of the rest. Making it easy to gift a subscription means more subscriptions will be given, which means more recurring revenue for your store.
After a subscription is purchased, Gifting sets the recipient up in your store. An account is automatically created. The recipient is emailed to notify them of the gift and instruct them to login to your store. Upon login, recipients are taken through an on-boarding process to set account details, including the shipping address for the subscription. Sell one gift, or one thousand, and it won’t require any extra work from you.
Shared Subscription Management
Both the recipient and purchaser of a gifted subscription are able to suspend or cancel the subscription, view details of the subscription and its renewal orders via your store’s My Account page, or change the shipping address. This saves you and your customer service team time by allowing your customers to self manage the subscription.
Gifting integrates with WooCommerce Memberships. Gifted subscription products tied to a membership plan will provide all the benefits of the membership to the recipient, not the purchaser. Giftable memberships give your customers another reason to buy more subscriptions with your store and save you time by allowing customers to self manage gifted memberships.
