Charging a Startup Fee / Upfront Fee on a Subscription

Spiffy makes it easy to charge a Startup Fee / Upfront Fee on a subscription. Many of our users asked for this functionality, as the need to charge an initial fee on a subscription is a very popular practice.

This can be set up to cover any initial fees or activation fees that you would like to charge a customer on a new 'Subscription' purchase. It can also be used to create a 'Paid Trial' for your subscription! 

To get started, you will just need to have a Checkout created for your Subscription.

While Inside the Checkout Editor, in the 'Offer' options, just click on 'Price' in the left menu.

From here, just click on the 'Add Startup Fee' button in the 'Subscription' section, enter the price, and 'Publish' the checkout to save your changes!

Once you have published your changes, your Spiffy Checkout will include the StartUp Fee in the customer's order summary for the subscription!
