Creation and management of plans inside saaster

Add a group

Click the button Add plan group.

If you would like to offer your service worldwide and have not activated any countries, the window will appear as follows:

As you can see, you can't select countries here. However, if you only offer your software in some countries, the following window will appear:

Now enter a group for each country if the prices, currencies etc. are different. In our example we will show you how to proceed with a worldwide plan.

The features can be populated with feature categories as desired. Click Add feature to enter a category or feature:

Features

You can enter all the values contained in this plan one after the other.

If the checkbox is activated, a green tick appears in the matrix. If there is a value in the text field, the value from the text field is displayed in the matrix. If the checkbox is activated AND there is a value in the text field, the value from the text field has priority.

Modules

You have the option of offering existing modules for each plan. When the customer books the plan, the module is also activated immediately without having to pay for it separately. If the customer cancels the plan, the module is also cancelled.

Set a default plan

After you have created all your plans, you can select a plan to act as the default plan. This means that when a customer registers without directly booking a plan, the default plan is automatically activated.

You need at least a free or a plan with test days.
