This guide is part two of a three-part series. Just starting out? Refer to the first guide Getting started with the Recharge Checkout on BigCommerce.
You've now gone through the Launch list to get up and running on Recharge. Here are some other steps we recommend to continue growing and enhancing your subscription business.
- Recharge Checkout on BigCommerce
Inventory is set and managed in BigCommerce directly. Recharge only creates the subscription order if there is available inventory in BigCommerce. If the inventory is not available, the order is marked with an inventory error.
Offer discounts for your subscriptions
Discount codes (or coupon codes, as BigCommerce refers to them), are one of the many ways to offer value to your customers and to increase customer loyalty. With Recharge, you can offer discount codes for both one-time purchases and recurring subscription orders.
If you plan to offer a discount for both one-time and subscription products, you will need to create the discount code in both BigCommerce and Recharge. Visit Creating discount codes for more information.
Additional discount code resources
- Read about the common use cases for discount codes.
- Want to reduce churn? Consider using discount codes as part of your cancellation and retention strategy.
- Recharge also performs bulk discount imports as a courtesy. Refer to Creating discount codes in bulk for more information.
Use Workflows by Recharge to offer free trials and more
Subscriptions can be further customized through Workflows by Recharge. If you want to learn how to offer free trials, discounts based on subscription length, and more, visit our Workflows by Recharge guide.
Customize Recharge to fit your design needs
While Recharge integrates seamlessly into your storefront, we understand that you might want to further customize the look and feel.
