I have been asked about setting up a subscription service for a start-up.
I have designed a couple of methods to implement this service.
Below I cover the two quick & easy methods.
How to Set-up Recurring Payments for Free
This is how to test your subscription services business ideas for free.
Setting up subscription payments for your product or service can be completed for free, within 20 mins. Your customers will be able to use credit cards or debit cards via their bank account.
You will be able to fully manage subscriptions & your clients can cancel the subscription or payment plan at any time.
The first method I will be covering is a PHASE 1 Tactical implementation. This is where you test if you have a business opportunity or not, which is why we are using this free way to collect online subscriptions.
If things take off then I have a PHASE 2 Strategic Implementation method. Which is a more secure method.
#1 = PHASE 1 Tactical implementation Steps
Create a MailChimp account (https://mailchimp.com)
Create a PayPal Business account (https://www.paypal.com/uk/business)
Create a PayPal subscription – Paypal guides you through each step. (https://www.paypal.com/billing/plans/plan/create/choose-product?from=plans)
Create a MailChimp landing page – As above, MailChimp guides you through the process. (https://mailchimp.com/help/create-a-landing-page/)
Then you would push your services to the people who have paid for this months subscription. To find out who has paid this month visit the PayPal Subsriptions page. (https://www.paypal.com/billing/plans)
#2 = PHASE 2 (Strategic Implementation)
Then if the above takes off you can build a simple WordPress website with WooCommerce Subscriptions.
To build a WordPress website first you will require hosting. You can get this from £5 per month or £47 if paid annually, which includes a free domain name (http://bit.ly/2KML845) includes a 60 days Money back guarantee. If you have a current website, they will copy it over for you.
