Custom Pricing integrates with Bold Memberships to give you with the ability to offer product discounts to customers who are signed up as members.
When subscribing to a membership plan created in Bold Memberships, your customers are automatically marked with a tag associated with the membership plan. This same tag can be used in Custom Pricing to offer discounts. Custom Pricing reads this tag to display the discounted product prices to your logged in plan members.
Custom Pricing creates the price discounts, while Memberships provides access to the plans.
Bold Memberships also provides many other features allowing you to offer exclusive content to your members only, and more. For more information, please visit Bold Memberships Pricing & Overview.
