I'm just starting my publishing house shopify store with purpose of selling books and magazines subscriptions. both digital and traditional.
Problem comes when I want to sell a digital magazine subscription.
Behavior we'd need is
Customer buys subscription to a certain number of issues (which i actually the product we sell).
When issue is published I set item online and customer who has bought subscription can, after having logging in, see items in his profile with link to digital version.
This is our idea of how it should work but any other suggestion about workflow for making digital magazine subscription would be very appreciated.
I have searched into community and also in other resources but can't find any suggestion or example of working digital magazine subscription shopify store and seems very strange since selling magazines is one of italian shopify claims.
I think combining a digital products app and a subscription app would work for this.
Have you tried using an app for digital products (there are many on the app store, Shopify also has one)?
You could then combine it with a subscription app and voila, subscription digital products.
I'd be interested in helping out more if you could share more details about your product.
Best of luck!
