Offerings represent a snapshot of their product and plans. If you make updates to products or plans within an offering, the original products and plans are not updated. Only the products and plans within the offering are updated. Alternatively, you can create a new product and attach it to a new offering.

An offering includes products and plans; products are combined with one or more plans to form an offering.

For example, your company provides online streaming of movies, web-series, and music. Your customers can purchase these services through either a weekly or monthly plan.

  2. Attach your plans.
    • Plans are the rules that govern your subscription, for example, any discount.
    • You can combine and reuse plans for as many products as you want, making it quick and easy to create your subscription offerings.
    • An offering must have at least one plan. See Plans.
  3. Create your offerings. Offerings are the products and plans that a customer can choose. An offering can consist of many combinations of products or plans, depending on the products and services you offer.
