Add a Subscription or Membership

Creating subscriptions is a two-step process. First, you’ll need to specify the details of the subscription and then you can add one or many plans to that subscription.

To get started with adding a subscription product, firstly visit your Products page and click on the Add new product button. Then click Show more followed by the Subscription Billing option.
