  • When a customer checks out with a subscription product that has an initial and subscription discount option tied to it, it creates a unique singular subscription just for that product.
  • If they have other regular subscription product(s) in their cart during checkout (in Multiple Product style), those products will be created as an additional subscription. You would most likely see a "2" beside their customer information in the app.
  • The customer will not be able to adjust product quantity, add new products to their existing subscription, or swap for another product for the particular subscription containing the initial and subscription discount. The options will be hidden from the "Manage" drop-down menu.
  • Once the automated transformation is complete, they will be able to make those changes again freely.
  • They'll still be able to edit and update their other subscriptions if applicable.
