Generate More Revenue with Setup Fees

Requiring a one-time activation fee for subscription payments on your site is an easy way to boost income. It also motivates subscribers to stay committed to your brand. 

The first payment adds the setup fee to the regular monthly subscription total. Then, all recurring payments drop to the monthly rate. 

WP Simple Pay makes charging an additional setup fee for new subscribers easy. Using the plugin’s advanced drag & drop form builder, you can create a subscription payment form that charges customers daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly. 

You can choose your setup fee amount and add it to your payment form effortlessly. You can also use the plugin to offer free trials for your subscription-based services and use a setup fee to recoup costs incurred from the free trial period.

Dozens of pre-built payment form templates let you create the perfect forms for products and services with a setup fee in minutes.

Reduce Churn with One-Time Setup Fees for Subscriptions

Requiring a setup fee for subscriptions encourages subscribers to stay committed to your subscription service because they’ve made a small upfront investment.

You can easily customize the fee amount using WP Simple Pay’s Pre-built Subscription Payment Form with a Setup Fee. You can also use the plugin to add a setup fee that will charge the subscriber a smaller amount upfront before the initial recurring payment. This fee can be used to offset the cost of offering a free trial period.

Additionally, if you offer special services, you can charge subscribers for your personalized work to cover the extra costs. 

Subscription payment forms with a setup fee allow you to provide your new subscribers transparency by itemizing the total amount due for the first subscription payment and then the recurring monthly amount.
