Want an example ?
We created a working example on our Michelle Bird artist demosite, where you can subscribe to become a member with more privileges. Subscribe to get the bonus of the artist blog, get personalized swag, and special concert dates and sneak previews.
We created a subscription in which there are 3 offers available to those who subscribe to become a Backstage Member: 12 € for 3 months, 22 € for 6 months, or 44 € for 12 months.
Notice, we choose to propose reduced rates for longer periods to encourage members to subscribe long term.
On the site, members can see the offers that have been made in
User account > Subscriptions
To make the offer of membership more enticing, the sleek use of the illustrative image and the drop-down menu allows users to easily select the offer of their choice.
