ChargeBee new subscription billing features: Flexi-coupons, trial extension, one-time payments, shipping address and more.

~ 2 min read | August 4

We have been releasing features in ChargeBee on a weekly schedule and there are several exciting features that you should take advantage of for your subscription billing needs.

##Flexi coupons became much more flexible:

Allow your marketing / sales team to run interesting promotions with more flexibility in coupon management.

  • You can now configure coupons to apply on “plans” or “plans & addons”.
  • If your customer wants to buy multiple quantities of particular plan, you can apply fixed amount discount coupons by quantity ($2 off multiplied by plan quantity).
  • Restrict coupons by specific plans for which they should apply.
  • You can promote these coupon codes with various constraints like limited period, one-time coupon with specific validity or max redemptions for the coupon. All this is possible with clicks & configuration in ChargeBee.
