How Do Shopify Subscription-Based Models Work?

Let’s take things back to the 1600s when subscription-based business models were first introduced. Yes, that’s right, the whole concept of repeat purchasing isn’t a new idea. It’s a thing of the past that has evolved into the very foundations of online businesses today.

In its earlier days, subscription-based models were used by the newsprint and book publishing businesses. However, in 2021, many companies have moved away from business revenue models (where revenue is made from one-time purchases) to a subscription-based business model (where revenue is made repeatedly).

Take The Economist for instance. Here is a prime example of how an international weekly newspaper is taking advantage of the subscription-based model setup to reach their readers both digitally and in a printed magazine-format. Readers can opt to purchase an annual or quarterly subscription for the news content in print and digital format or in just digital format alone. Other subscription services include; student subscriptions where a 50% discount is given), gift subscriptions that can be shared with friends and family and group subscriptions that provide access to a corporate subscription plan.

With such an enticing service offering with payment options applicable for variable budgets, the core principles of lifetime customer value are truly enforced into The Economist’s business model. In short, if you’re aware of a customer’s lifetime value, businesses can acquire new subscribers at an initial loss in marketing costs.

Product/service subscriptions are generally renewed and activated automatically with a pre-authorised credit card or checking account. The benefit of subscription models for online stores is largely due to the recurring revenue that they provide. In addition, such services have been proven to create a strong brand to customer relationship.

Subscription-Based Business Model Example

We think that the easiest subscription model to explain and understand is that of a magazine publication. Instead of selling a magazine as a standalone product where the customer makes a one-time purchase, magazine companies offer a subscription service for the delivery of a weekly or monthly magazine.

This makes the revenue model of the company stronger because it guarantees itself sales over 12 months as opposed to a single purchase. With a subscription-based business model, revenue forecasting and business planning are made easy for companies to project their sales further with accuracy.
