Omnyfy offers marketplace owners the ability to create Vendor Subscriptions that charge vendors a fee to participate on the marketplace. Vendor Subscriptions are created on Omnyfy using the Vendor Subscription module. Click here to learn how you can create a new Vendor Subscription.
To complete the creation of a Vendor Subscription, you need a Subscription Code from Stripe (Payment Gateway ID).
Follow the process below to create a new subscription in Stripe, then simply copy and paste in your Subscription Code into the newly created Vendor Subscription Plan in Omnyfy.
Log in to your Marketplace Owner Stripe account
Go to the left menu and select the Products main menu heading
Click on Add product on the top right
This is where you put the initial product descriptions. Note that this is different from your subscription plan tiers. You may have multiple plans, with each plan having different tiers - similar to Vendor Types EG:
Here you are creating the information for "Retailer Plan", "Services Plan", "Corporate Plan". The tiers are managed below. Note that if you are having different tiers with different billing intervals, you'd be best to create those as individual plans instead.
This is the name of your subscription plan.
This is fine to leave blank, as this information isn't really shared with the vendors.
This is fine to leave blank, as this field isn't really shared with the vendors.
This is the information that will appear on the Vendor's Credit Card - ensure it contains the marketplace name so the payment is identifiable.
This is the unit count of the subscription. If the subscription is for a month, then set it to "Per Month".
The metadata field can be ignored as this isn't used.
This is the section you will manage the different tiers for each subscription plan. In the previous example:
This is where you manage the "Bronze Tier", "Silver Tier", "Gold Tier" from Retailer Plan, and "Tier 1", and "Tier 2" from Corporate Plan.
Select Standard Pricing here
Input the price and currency used for this tier. It's important to note that you should be setting this to the Base Currency of the Marketplace.
Input if it's a one off price or if you will be having a recurring charge for the subscription. Generally this should match with what you have input on the subscription plan in Omnyfy.
Billing Period (if Recurring is selected above)
This is to determine how frequent the interval charges will be. Here you can select the following:
Select the matching value in your subscription plan you created in Omnyfy.
Keep "Usage is metered" unticked.
This will be the name of the plan visible to Vendors in your marketplace, so ensure it makes sense for subscriptions. EG Bronze, Silver or Gold
Free Trial Days
Set the Trial Period for the Subscription (if the Marketplace owner wants to offer a free trial period). This should match the same number for the related subscription plan.
If your plan is going to have multiple tiers, you can simply select the + Add another price button to input another tier.
Once the Product and Pricing tier is created, you will see the Product information view.
