There are two components to a subscription product: Term (how long the subscription lasts), and Benefits (what your subscription actually gets you). New subscription products are assigned both, so before creating a subscription product it's necessary to create at least one Term and one Benefits list.
Fortunately, both terms and benefits can be found in the Products dropdown menu.
Creating a New Subscription Benefit
- Click Products on the Slatwall toolbar.
- Select Subscription Benefits from the dropdown.
The Subscription Benefits Listing screen will display.
Click the and the Create Subscription Benefit modal appears.
Your Subscription Benefit Name should describe the level of access or type of content to which subscribers will be given.
Access Codes can be generated in one of three ways: per account, per benefit, or per subscription. Select one of these from the Access Code Generation Type drop-down.
The number of times a given access code can be used before it is no longer valid is dictated by Maximum Use Per Access Code.
Clicking Save brings you to the page for your Subscription Benefit, where you will find expandable accordions for the Categories, Contents, Price Groups and Benefit Info associated (or potentially associated - this accordion is a custom attribute added in the Attribute Sets section of slatwall and uses Subscription Benefit as the object. See Attribute Sets for information on setting up custom attributes.) with your benefit.
Depending on your integration, Categories and Contents are both pulled from either Slatwall or from your chosen content management system and added to the Categories and Contents accordions.
If a category or content page has been marked Yes for Restrict Access, you will have the option of including it in this subscription benefit. All categories and content pages can be manually excluded regardless of whether they are inherently restricted.
Price Groups (see the price group section of this user guide for more information) can be assigned if special subscription rates are associated with subscriptions with this benefit.
