Your subscriptions will be shown on your public profile and your students can buy any of your active packs.
For classes/videos that honor one of your subscriptions, the registration popup shown to students will also alert them that there is a subscription available. They will see something like this when they sign up for a class:
When registering for class where a subscription applies, students who have said subscription will simply need to confirm that they want to register for the class:
How to make subscription / membership apply to a class or video
After creating a new subscription / membership you'll see the option to automatically connect it to all your classes and/or videos.
If don't select any of these options, you'll need to manually configure your classes/videos to "honor" a particular subscription (just like with passes).
On any of your existing classes or videos, click the 3 little dots at the top right to go straight to the screen where you set up packages and payments. You'll then be given the choice to make this apply for one specific class/video, or for the whole class series.
You'll then see a list of your active packages. Select the one(s) that should apply to that class/video, and then also choose whether having the subscription is optional or required (required means that only people with that subscription can register for that specific class or access the video).
For example, it could look like this:
How to cancel a subscription for a student
On their account page your students can see all the packages they have. From there they can cancel their subscription directly, or you as the teacher can cancel it for them from your dashboard on Stripe.
Tips & FAQs
Can I assign a subscription or membership to a student?
Sorry, no. Unlike for passes
where you can take payment outside of Ubindi and then assign the student a pass, this doesn't work with subscription (because subscriptions are billed to a credit card every week, month or every year, depending on the billing cycle).
What are the platform fees for subscriptions?
Why should I sell subscriptions?
Subscriptions (memberships) are generally great for your business and revenue. When your students have a subscription with you, they're not only more likely to show up for class, but they're much less likely to go elsewhere, and you are paid even when students don't come to class for a while.
Can a subscription apply to classes AND videos, or does it have to be separate?
Your subscriptions can apply to classes and/or videos. So yes, it can!
How can I raise the price on a subscription?
You can't raise the price on people who already have an active subscription. If you want to raise the price on active subscribers, it requires cancelling everyone and getting them to take out the new subscription. We can help you do that (let us know!), as it's fiddly and time-consuming (with prorated refunds, etc)
You don't have be a school, gym or big studio to offer subscriptions to your students and enjoy the benefits normally available only to larger businesses. Yay!
