Product and its associated pricing plans are two important components of Subscription management.

A product can be defined as something that you offer to your customers for subscription.

Pricing plans are an integral part of subscriptions. Pricing plan determines how often and how much you want to charge your customers for subscribing to your product offering.

Payabbhi provides flexible options to manage your plans for subscription.

There are multiple ways of managing pricing plan for your business. You may just have a base cost of your product, but may offer variation of pricing plan with variation in billing cycle and cost.

Some Examples of pricing plans :

  • Zoho Standard charges 720 INR per user per month
  • Zoho Professional charges 1220 INR per user per month

You may even enhance your product in an ongoing basis and create multiple plans for offering the enhanced version. Hence Payabbhi supports you in your constant endeavour for business growth and customer satisfaction.

Payabbhi allows to organize and manage your products and pricing plans via API and Merchant Portal both.

Product Creation
