There are several types of subscription models popular amongst merchants. Recharge offers solutions for each type.
|One-time and subscription||This option works for products where you want the customer to have a choice between purchasing the item once, or subscribing to the product on a recurring basis. This is also known as the subscribe & save model.|
|Subscription only||This option only allows customers to subscribe to the product without the choice to purchase it as a one-off.|
|Prepaid subscription||This option allows customers to pay for multiple shipments upfront. For example, if you offer a 6-month prepaid subscription option, a customer would pay for six months upfront and receive $0 shipment orders every month for six months.|
