Can I sell a digital product with a $1 trial and later charge full price?

Is it possible to sell a digital product with a $1 trial, then charge the full price 14 or 30 days later with the option to cancel and only pay $1 if they don't love the program?

 

I have a money-back guarantee but think this pricing strategy may work even better as a 2nd offer to those that visited the product but didn't buy.

 

Please let me know if Shopify carts has the capability.

Hey, @boatsw 

 

Great question. Is your digital product intended to be a one time payment or a recurring subscription after the 14 day trial? 

 

Your best bet would be to explore apps in the Shopify app store that offer partial payment/buy now pay later functionality. An app such as Charge Me Later is worth looking into as a viable option. In addition, our Shop Pay Installments is another excellent solution. Shop Pay offers customers the option to pay for their order in full at checkout, or to pay in installment payments for orders from 50 USD to 17,500 USD.

 

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

Thanks, I'll check out that app. 

 

It would be a one-time payment with an easy cancel option so they aren't charged if they don't love the program.

Hey, @boatsw 

 

Did the apps work for your situation? I just wanted to loop back to see if there was anything you may need help with.

Hi @boatsw I think we're building the app you'd need to do this. You'd be able to set up a deposit amount and charge the remainder x days after checkout. We're launching soon but we're interested to hear more and get feedback so we can build something that fits for you. Check us out here: hypehound.io and let me know if you want to chat further about this!
