Subscriptions via Links

In case you do not have a website or app, you can still create and send subscriptions to customers via a link. When the customer opens the link, they are taken to a checkout page hosted by Razorpay where they make the authorization payment. You can also use this feature to create and send custom subscriptions to customers.

Create a Subscription Link#

To create a subscription link:

  1. Log into your Dashboard and navigate to Subscriptions.

  2. Click + Create New Subscription. The Create Subscription screen displays.

  3. Select the required plan from the Select Plan dropdown.

  4. Select the Subscription Start Date. Trial Period:
    To create a trial period for your customers, all you need to provide is a future start date. The actual billing cycle automatically starts at the specified date, essentially creating a trial period.

  5. Enter the Total Count. This defines how many times the customer should be charged (the number of billing cycles).
    Note:
    ● If a customer is subscribing to a monthly plan on March 1st, 2019 for 2 years, the total count would be 24. The subscription would automatically move to the completed state on March 1st, 2021.
    ● A subscription can continue for a maximum of 10 years. We do not support lifetime subscription.

  6. Click Next.

  7. Select I want to add an upfront amount.

  8. Click the dropdown and click +Create New Item. The Add Upfront Amount screen appears in a pop-out window.

  9. Add the following details and click Save.

    • Name
    • Rate per unit
    • Description (optional)
  10. You can add additional items using the Add New Item option.

  11. Click Next once you have added all items tagged as upfront amount.
    Note:
    ● All the created add-on items display in the Select Item to Add dropdown.
    ● The upfront amount and add-ons will have the same currency as the plan, which can be in any of the supported currencies.

  12. Enter the customer's mobile number and/or email address.

  13. Select the Notify Customer check box if you want Razorpay to automatically send the Subscription Link to the customer via email to make the authorization payment.

  14. Set an expiry date for the link.

  15. Add internal notes, if required.

  16. Click Next once you have entered all the required details.
    Note:
    If the Notify Customer checkbox is not selected, Razorpay does not send the customer the subscription link to make the authorization payment.

  17. Review the details and click Create Subscription Link to send the link to the customer.
