Skyrocket your income by selling Subscriptions!

Digital products tend to have a much higher margin than physical ones. We know it, you know it. But, what if we told you your digital product sales income can be grown substantially even more? That’s where subscription sales come in!

Why should I sell subscriptions?

Selling subscription-based products present you with the following opportunities:

  • Collecting recurring revenue vs. one-time revenue
  • Establishing a more foreseeable cash-flow
  • Increasing profit per customer vs. growing customer base
  • Building up customer loyalty by providing regular & engaging content
  • Monetizing your community building efforts
Sellfy Tip
Now, in addition to subscriptions, users on all plans can sell digital products, print-on-demand items, physical products, and freebies. To add new products, go to Products > Add new product.
