Prices 101 - What You Need to Understand about Prices in Simplero

It's easy to create both Purchase prices and Subscription prices in Simplero.  Think of purchase prices as a mortgage (you own it at the end) and subscription prices like rent (you only get to stay there as long as you are making payments).  Purchase prices can be paid-in-full or they can be a series of payments paid over time. 

To Create Prices

  1. Select Products from your Simplero Dashboard
  2. From the Products tab, select a product from your list
  3. Select the Prices tab
  4. In the List Prices, a Simple price will show. This is the price you entered when creating the product. You can edit this price.
  5. To add a new price or payment plan that will appear on your order form, select the white "Add a list price" button on the left-hand side.

  6. You will be directed to the price creations screen. 

  7. Complete each of the following fields:
    • Name - This will be shown next to the price on the order form. For example, "Early Bird" or "Payment Plan".
    • Type of Price - For example, "Purchase" or "Subscription".  The type cannot be changed after you've created the price.
      •  Purchases
        • Gives them lifetime access to the product once they have paid the full cost of the product. (If they default on a payment plan their access will be canceled until they pay.) 
        • Amount - How much the person will pay upon purchase. This can be a paid in full amount, or a deposit on a payment plan. 
        • Number of Installments - This is used for payment plans - Type the number of payments you want them to make. Once you have put in a number of 1 or more hit enter and more boxes will pop up for you to set up your payment plan.
          With installments, your order form will tell them the total amount they are paying over how many payments. When they select it, it will give them the payment schedule. 
          • Select the payment amount for each payment after the initial purchase.
          • Select the period of time between payments.
      • Subscription
        • Gives them access for a limited period of time for each payment they make. 
        • Amount - How much the person will pay upon purchase.
        • How long that payment will give them access to the product. 
        • If you want them to have a trial period, fill in how long the trial period is.
        • Subscription Settings - Here you can select their renewing options and if you want them to have to commit to a specific amount of time, such as a 1-year commitment. You can learn more about subscription settings in this guide.
    • Access - Will this price by visible to everyone who sees your order form (List price) or only be available to those who have the link to a Secret Price or know the Coupon Code? 
    • Availability for this price - Set the number of seats available at this price.
    • Quantity - Set the minimum quantity per purchase to qualify for this price.
    • Engagement - Use this only if there are lists or products that the person must be signed up for/have purchased in order to purchase at this price.  Please note that the prospective purchaser must be logged in to Simplero for this price to be visible to them.
    • Payment options - Choosing the default "Unrestricted" allows all your enabled payment processors to be available to your purchaser. Learn more about payment processor options here
    • Triggers - Save first, then you can add triggers. In this location, triggers let you do things like add tags, give access to content or add people to lists depending on which price they purchase at. 
  8. Select the blue Create price to save.

 

You can duplicate a price by clicking on the Duplicate icon in the price summary, or by editing the price and choosing the red 'duplicate price' button in the upper right corner.  This is handy if you just want to make a small change to a price.
