More about CBSubs

Memberships pay you back!

CBSubs allows you to make your site pay for itself and for your work building your community:

CBSubs allows your members to pay you for your site

CBSubs is fully integrated with CB and all its processes and workflows. It allows your site members to choose their memberships, donate and buy products from your site in an integrated workflow.

CBSubs allows you to handle multiple memberships

CBSubs allows to handle multiple memberships, donations and products for each user, allowing for up-sales, upgrades, optional or mandatory memberships, and automatic user account expiration.

Handle your social memberships automatically

Extend your registration process with new workflows, including selection of plans and payments for membership, donations and products within your registration form. Propose fields at registration which depend on the plan chosen, allowing for different profiles depending on subscription plans subscribed.

Fully integrated and tailored for Community Builder

Integrate the plans, donations and merchandises sales into the Community Builder registration page and on user's own profile.

Donations and products too

CBSubs integrates all features needed to manage your social memberships, donations and merchandise sales for your community:

Collect donations

CBSubs allows collecting donations for multiple causes by using multiple plans. You can fix donation amount, make a list of suggested values, have a free amount field and set minimum and maximum donation amounts, avoiding donations which don't even cover collection charges.

Sell products online

You can sell merchandises online, either downloadable electronic items in combination with a documents manager (DocMAN and Remository supported by integration plugins), or products, services, and any other items. Many integrations allow to automate the electronic delivery.

Combine subscriptions, donations and merchandises in single sales

CBSubs allows you to combine any kind of item in a single sale, allowing easy cross-sales, and a single checkout for the member. Often subscriptions, donations and merchandises sales are done by different components, requiring separate checkouts, which considerably lower the probability of joint sales. This is a real winner feature of CBSubs and helps dramatically raise your sales amounts, specially within your social community.

Propose options with children plans appearing web-2.0-way when user selects main plan

We call this the "sales doubler": when the user selects a top plan, CBSubs can unveil sub-plans as options or up-sales using a smooth web-2.0-transition in the browser. This allows proposing to the customer special options, deals, and other goodies, which allow raising the average sales-amount by easily 20-100%, depending on the offering.


Although CBSubs uses web-2.0 techniques, it remains accessible to every user, as it is properly marked up, HTML and CSS W3C-compliant, and works just fine without javascript too.
