Enhancement to Coupon Application

Customer churn happens to the best companies. To help close out churned or canceled customers quickly, it is now possible to apply coupons to subscriptions and have them be applied when the subscription is canceled. This new capability will allow you to clear any usage-based outstanding balances on subscriptions that are scheduled to cancel, removing the need to process a service credit after cancelation. 

For more information on applying coupons, see our documentation >

This update to the Chargify Hubspot integration allows customer-facing teams to easily add or remove coupons and service credits without requiring access to Chargify, or leaving the interface they manage the rest of their customer activities in - Hubspot!

Component Dunning

Subscription businesses are prone to failed customer payments from time to time. Having an effective dunning strategy can help prevent churn and is important in resolving customer's failed payments swiftly. Within Chargify, you have the flexibility in tailoring your communication approach, in addition to the pre-built templates, for your customers entering the dunning process.  

Today we are excited to announce a new feature added to our dunning functionality. Introducing mid-period component dunning! This new feature allows for failed mid-period component allocations payment to move a subscription into dunning. This allows your customer and team to be alerted to any issues with a mid-period allocation payment.

Customizable Emails for Upcoming Renewals

Without a bulletproof subscription renewal process, your customers can experience unexpected charges, questionable renewal tactics, and ultimately churn. To better delight your customers, Chargify's renewal emails keep your customers in the know of upcoming subscription renewals, as well as the added option to update/change their payment profile and plan(s).  

We are happy to introduce new customizable upcoming renewal options for these email communications. This new feature allows you to customize renewal email timing, in addition to specifying which product price points an email should be triggered on.

Reactivate Subscriptions with Prepayments and Service Credits

Sometimes customer subscriptions need to be reinstated after being cancelled. Instead of creating a brand new subscription, our reactivation functionality allows you to reinstate a subscription with the following options: 

  • Start a New Billing Period
  • Resume Billing Period
  • Collect Any Outstanding Balances 
  • Include Trialing Period 

In addition to those listed above, we are excited to announce that our Product Team has added new options for you to adjust how this reactivation gets paid by allowing for Service Credits and Prepayments to be selected. 

When this option is selected, any Service Credits and Prepayments on the subscription will be applied to the reactivation charge before attempting to use the customers' payment profile.
