Products, Bundles, and Subscriptions

Overview

Product, Bundle, and Subscription configuration options in the FastSpring platform

 

Products fit into one of three primary classifications:

  • Product - An individual product or service for which consumers pay a single, flat price for perpetual use of the product or service 

  • Bundle - A collection of individual products or services that are available for purchase at a combined, flat price or fee for perpetual use

  • Subscription - A product or service for which consumers make more than one payment as part of a payment plan. This can be on a recurring basis, or a predefined, limited-time basis.

Product Data

Under the Products menu, organize the data and behavior of your products, bundles, and services. This includes the product's:

  • Name
  • Base Image
  • Price
  • Short and long descriptions
  • Label of the product's action button
  • Which additional products appear as cross-sells
  • Fulfillment options

Product Display

To manage how your products display in the shopping cart, navigate to Storefronts > Settings. You do not need to manage multiple copies of a single product to display it in various ways. Here, you can control:

  • Size of the product image on the Homepage
  • Color of the product’s link
  • Size of the font used for the product’s link
  • Placement of the product’s cross-sell offering

Fulfillment Options

Several fulfillment options are available for digital products:
  • Request a license key from an external server in real-time during order processing
  • Issue a license key from a pre-uploaded list
  • Execute a custom JavaScript or PHP code snippet to generate a license key
FastSpring can also host your product download and serve the download file to buyers as needed.
