Top App for Magazine Subscriptions

Hello,

 

I've just recently created a Shopify store and want to move my magazine subscription from "Subscription Genius" over onto Shopify with a 3rd party plugin.

 

Not that being said, there are a lot of plug ins and i wanted to see if anyone had any feedback on a specific one that is better for publications (Magazines)?

 

My main worry is letting people auto renew, also getting a file with all their information so that i can send a PO to the printer to get them printed and sent out from there. Besides that, it would be fantastic to offer deals, discounts,, specials.

 

It also needs to work worldwide since we do sell subscriptions globally.

Hi, @PatrickStern

 

There wouldn't be a specific app for magazine subscriptions, however any of the subscription and recurring charges apps should do the trick! Of those, I would suggest either Subscriptions by ReCharge, or Bold Subscriptions. The latter offers to create coupon codes for subscriber promotions, so that may be the best fit for you. Hope that helps!

Hi @Brie 

 

Thank you so much for your quick reply.

 

I mean it does not have to be specific to Magazines, i just need to export date so i can get that date to the printer for shipment. That's the most important part for us to be sure every single person receives their subscription

Hey, @PatrickStern

 

No problem at all. What kind of information will you need to gather from them when they make the purchase?

@Brie 

It needs to be basic information like name, address, email, phone number.

 

But also it needs to have information on how many issues they have left in their subscription. That's really it. both for domestic and international.

@PatrickStern - 

 

I see! If you were to use the Subscription by ReCharge app, it includes a customer portal where the customer can login and manage their own subscription. In terms of gathering their information, all of that would typically be provided when they checkout (name, address, phone number). Once a customer has checked out, you can export customer information at any time. Would the info provided at checkout be sufficient, or would you need that in any specific format?

Hello Patrick! 👋🏼

Adriana here from Ongoing Subscriptions 😁👋🏼😁👋🏼

You can easily create a  subscription for magazine using the Ongoing app.

You can also create different types of subscription plans for your magazine using our app (prepaid, pay per delivery , gift subscriptions, etc)

It works perfectly for both physical magazines and digital magazines.

  • You can choose to let the magazine subscription auto-renew or having it end after a certain amount of time (we offer both types of plans!)
  • Our app works globally and so it works in all different currencies and languages.
  • Ongoing will also allow you to tag the customers who are subscribed to your publication so you can isolate them which makes marketing and fulfillment much easier.
  • We would be happy to set this up for you
  • We also offer complimentary design customizations to make sure the subscription widget looks exactly how you would like it.
  • Ongoing offers amazing customer service with in-app chat support. 

Feel free to try out Ongoing Subscriptions  today and our customer support team will help get you set up in a couple minutes. We're always available to answer any questions you might have so feel free to get in touch if you need anything at all!

 

Cheers,

Adriana @OngoingPayments

@OngoingPayments: Could you add a magazine subscription to your demo store? No subscription apps showcase this from what I can find, they only show the monthly subscribe & save style setup of the same product, but never a prepaid subscription of a product that is different with each shipment.

Hello ArtMag!

 

Adriana here from Ongoing Subscriptions.

 

We actually offer a feature called "custom fulfillment " which lets your customer prepay for a year, and then you can choose the delivery dates (for each shipment).  I think this would be the perfect solution for your magazine subscription!

 

This feature is currently available on our Enterprise Plan, at $299/ per month + 1% transaction fees.

 

You can see an article I wrote about this here.

 

 I would be happy to show you a Zoom demo of how this works! 🙂

 

You can grab some time to chat with me here on my calendar

@PatrickStern  - We're using subscription genius and want a way to validate out subscribers to our store.  Did you find a solution or an app that will replace subscription genius?
