You might be wondering what type of business is suitable for a subscription? The answer can be everything and anything! It can range from gaming, cooking, water filter, music streaming, cloud storage, apps, web-services, insurance, telco bill payments and many more!
A good example of a subscription flow for you is, firstly, you name the plan. For example, “Platinum Plan”. Then you include the amount and the currency for this plan, e.g. “MYR 29.90”, and you have the frequency, which is a month.
