Articles on: SubBox

With SubBox, you can set up the Prepaid One-time Plan in few steps.
Visit Apps > SubBox > Subscription > Plan tab > click on the Create a Plan button

Plan types

This plan type allows the customer to make a single payment upfront for orders that will be delivered on a repeat basis. And it will be canceled when the cycle ends.

Here's an example to help you understand this feature better:
If your subscriber buys a product (the price is $5) that has a Prepaid plan with Fulfillment frequency is every 2 days, Number or fulfillment (times) is 10, and the discount is $2, they will be charge $48 ($5 x 10 - $2 ). And then you will have an order that will be posted on your Shopify order's section with 10 fulfillments, you will need to fulfill them by yourself on your Shopify admin. After finishing 10 fulfillment, the subscription end.

Click on the dropdown menu, select Prepaid

Fulfillment frequency

The time between two continuous purchases with the time unit is days/weeks/months/years

Eg. If you fill out 1 day means delivery once a day, 2 days means delivery every 2 days.

Display Name

Please enter the name’s plan that will be visible to your customers. Let’s make it understandable to your customers

Eg. If you enter 2 day in Fulfillment Frequency, the Display Name can be "Delivery every 2 days"

Number of fulfillment (times)

The number of fulfillment (times) is the number of fulfillment/ delivery in a order

Eg. If your number of fulfillment is 10, then your delivery time will be 10 times.

Discount (optional)

Once you set a discount for the subscription plan, it cannot be disabled. If you want to remove the discount for the subscription plan, you need to remove this subscription plan and create a new one without the discount offer

There are 3 options to set the discount:
- None
- Fixed amount: You can set the amount of money that you give a discount per subscription plan
- Percentage: You can set the percentage that you give a discount per subscription plan

Eg. If you set fixed amount with $5. The subscription plan will be deducted $5

Please click Add more plan option to add more frequency for a subscription plan

You can preview the subscription widget how showing on your product page with the Preview feature before click the Save button to save your subscription plan.
