The Magestore Membership Magento 2 extension is designed to implement the system of benefits for customers on the basis of their subscriptions. The module allows you to create various membership packages for various products. By subscribing to a certain package (a membership fee should be paid), customers get discounts for products that are available in the chosen package. An interesting e-commerce trick, isn’t it?
Unfortunately, Magestore no longer provides this extension, but you can replace it with the help of Subscriptions and Recurring Payments Magento 2 Extensions. They do not provide the same functionality but may become even more useful for your e-commerce business.
So, let’s figure out the extension’s core features first. Magestore Membership for Magento 2 supports a virtually unlimited number of membership packages. A few will be enough to test the functionality of the module in your e-commerce niche. Then, you will create more. To attract customers to the new feature, the Membership module provides the ability to describe each package with such data as products in the package, registration fee, discount rule, duration, etc. Thus, your clients will be fully informed about all benefits of being subscribed. Furthermore, you can enable store visitors to view membership price right on a product page!
The cheapest product price can be automatically defined during the checkout. Featured packages can be displayed on a listing page, and you can add special tags to them. Besides, there is a possibility to change URLs to improve SEO.
Thus, you encourage buyers to purchase more goods, since joining a membership plan opens much wider opportunities, such as special discounts or even some free goods. As mentioned above, you are free to create an unlimited number of packages with different fees and benefits. All these aspects make Magestore Membership for Magento 2 a real treasure. To illustrate the extension’s usefulness even more, let’s dive deep into its backend.
