How-to questions / How to build subscription based ecommerce
« on: July 17, 2020, 08:06:52 AM »
This is a quick intro to subscriptions
The subscription business model is based on a customer paying a regularly recurring amount in exchange for the service. From hosting services to fitness membership or storage the subscriptions help building long term relationships with customers and recurring revenues.

Subscription models give customers the feeling of owning many different products without the cost, responsibility, and clutter of actually buying them.

Today, payment processors and ecommerce applications make it possible to set up and process recurring payments without massive investment.

AbanteCart Stripe Subscription module is a quick way to start offering subscriptions to customers, allowing different product/services variations,  subscription cycles and trial periods.

Subscription product types
Regular services or supplement, memberships, downloads, meal delivery services, educational memberships, car regular services or any regularly-purchased goods, like vitamins, skincare items, coffee, and pet food.

What is your subscription cycle?
A common subscription cycle is monthly, but don’t get stuck on that cycle. Stripe supports a daily, weekly and yearly cycle with flexible interval count. For example, you might subscribe the customer to every two weeks or every 5 days.

Using trial periods on subscriptions
Beat competitors and start a customer’s subscription with a free trial period. If that’s not your eCommerce subscription model, you can start subscriptions right away.

You have to convince your customers not only to buy your product. You also need them to sign up with you to get more of it on a regular basis. Your subscription eCommerce business will have a closer relationship with your customers than most eCommerce sites. A subscription might not seem much different from a one-time purchase. But to manage subscription payments you need to retain more information about your customers, so you can charge them automatically in the future and maintain appropriate access to your product.

Customer billing
With a subscription product, you need to be able to bill every cycle. Every time payment is due for a subscription, a draft invoice and new AbanteCart order are generated. If payment fails because of a card error such as a decline or require authentication to complete the payment process, AbanteCart notify the customer with ability to change payment method or confirm authorization.

How-to questions / How to build digital products eCommerce

How to build digital products eCommerce

This is a quick intro for business process and best practice
Downloadable or digital products are easy to distribute, significantly more sustainable, can be replicated infinitely, and are oftentimes simpler to create. With little as one computer or tablet, any person is capable of making a digital product worthy of sharing or selling. No physical materials, factories, or staff required. Just a computer, a sprinkle of passion, drive, and some time.

Digital products have no complexities of shipping and handling, international customs, laws, importing, inventory management, and so on.

Running your own store requires that you draft up terms and conditions (as well as license agreements, if applicable) to protect you and your customers, and dictate how your products can be used.

Best practice of structuring digital products. What to disable and enable
Digital products do not require delivery, disable the “Require Shipping” setting in all your digital products.  When you add archived files to products make sure to use widely used and free archive formats like .zip. Avoid formats that are not available in all operating systems by default even if they provide better compression (.7z, .bzip, .xz, etc).
If your products require versioning, decide on your versioning policy and if you provide older versions for customers to download.

When you add files to products it is important to set the “Activated Order” status in which customers will be able to download files after purchase.

In case of multiple files in one product, display the versions or other text data you want to show customers with Download Attributes added to your digital product files.

Order fulfillment setup and handling.
By default, AbanteCart allows purchasing of digital products to registered customers.
If you want to make checkout and registration more comfortable to your guests and registered customers, you can enable AbanteCart Fast Checkout. Fast checkout allows guests to purchase digital products or products with downloads attached.

Make sure you configure a correct “Order Status” to activate downloads after purchasing.
“Order Status” is usually set to “Completed” but may be specific to the Success & settled order status managed in your payment settings. Consider setting your Payment method to the Authorize & Capture mode to allow customers to download immediately after a successful order is placed.

If you decide to release updates to existing customers, you can push new or updated files attached to products to already placed orders.

Important to note that digital products are targeted by fraudsters more frequently than fiscal products. You can use fraud detection tools to help you with preventing loss of digital products and chargeback fees. Fees can be very high.
