Editing Plans

Action Menu - 3 dots

To change plan names, descriptions, or add a graphic, just hit Action

Edit

Changing a Plan's Price wont automatically change billing for specific members, so we don't recommend editing prices or deleting plans, especially if you have any current members on that plan. Instead, change the old plan to "Hidden" and add a new plan.

Hidden or Visible Plans

Have a first round of exclusive plans for your early members? No problem! You can hide previous subscription levels while continuing to bill existing members. New users won't see them as options on your plans page, ensuring a seamless user experience.

Paid Vs. Free Community: The "Pay Wall"

  • Paid Community: When you select the Paid registration option, your community will live behind a pay wall, and no one will be able to access it until they have selected a plan and paid for it.
  • Free Community: Your users will be able to access your community for free, right after registering and verifying their email. You can still add plans for specific areas like pages, groups, and audio albums.  

The Magic of Plans: Monetization Features

Once your plans are set up, the real magic happens! 

Let's explore the incredible monetization features that come to life with plans:

Gated Groups

Create a sense of exclusivity by locking groups behind specific subscription levels. Watch as members eagerly upgrade to gain access to connect with high-level individuals and discuss important topics.

Gated Content Pages

Create a sense of exclusivity by locking pages of valuable content behind specific subscription levels. Watch as members eagerly upgrade to gain access to your premium resources.

Members will not be able to access your subscription-locked pages until they unlock the proper subscription level, so you will want to make it really clear in the plan details that purchasing your content plan will give them access.


Viral Invites

Turn your members into passionate advocates for your community through our viral invites program. Enable users to refer their friends and receive value or a percentage of the sale. Harness the power of word-of-mouth marketing and watch your community grow organically.


Subscription-Based Automations

Connect your community with other tools and systems using Zapier. Automate actions based on subscription triggers, such as sending personalized welcome emails when a user starts a subscription or re-engaging members if their subscription is canceled.

Get ready for the wonders of subscription-based automations that will revolutionize your community management:

  • Plan Subscription Started: When a user starts a subscription with a confirmed payment, it's time to celebrate! They've officially become your valued customer. Take this opportunity to shower them with an email flow filled with tips, tricks, and exclusive insights on how to make the most of your community. Keep them engaged and ensure they embark on an unforgettable journey within your vibrant community.
  • Plan Subscription Failed: Sometimes, payment hiccups happen, but fret not! When a subscription payment is declined, our automation springs into action. You can effortlessly send them a thoughtful message, offering assistance and providing alternative payment options. With a gentle nudge, you can recover lost revenue without lifting a finger.
  • Plan Subscription Restored: Witness the magic of a restored subscription! When a user updates their payment details and successfully pays for a previously inactive or declined subscription, our automation leaps into action. Reactivate their customer workflows and welcome them back with open arms. It's time to reignite their connection with your community and ensure they continue their exciting journey.
  • Plan Subscription Cancelled: When a subscription payment is cancelled, it's a moment to reflect and strategize. Our automation allows you to drop them into specially designed workflows, aimed at winning them back or gaining valuable insights into their departure. Explore ways to re-engage and entice them to rediscover the remarkable experiences your community has to offer.
