Odoo comes savvy to all kinds of business communication platforms and the business models such as subscription is no exception with Odoo. Often the subscription model comes into play when a customer has to pay certain subscription price so as to have right access to the product or a service. Odoo Subscription app initiates excellent subscription management to efficiently handle the subscription business models.

To start with, firstly install the Odoo subscription app from Odoo app store.

As soon as you enter the dashboard, you see the subscriptions in different stages.

To activate a subscription, firstly create a ‘Subscription Template’ and a Subscription Product’.

Once you fix the template, assign the template to your subscription product.

To bind everything and sell the subscription, create the quotation templates under sales.

Create Subscription Template

To create subscription template, go to Subscriptions> Configuration> Subscription Templates

You can see the already created templates here. To edit the existing templates, click the three dots on right end.

To create a new, click on the CREATE button.

Here, one can add the following information:

Subscription name: Name of the subscription template.

Invoicing Period: Repeat Every Day/Week/Month/Year. It denotes whether your subscription is weekly, monthly, yearly and or so on.

Duration: Duration of the subscription whether it is forever or fixed. Via clicking Forever, the subscription runs forever until it is manually closed. On the other hand, if it is ticked as Fixed, you get with additional field like below, where you can specify manually the time.

Next we have several options for creating Invoices, say manually, draft, send and try to charge and so on.

Closable by the customer: If checked, the user can close his payment from the Website.

Journal: If set, the subscription with this template will invoice in this journal; otherwise the sales journal with the lowest sequence will be used.

Under the terms and conditions tab, one can add the terms for this particular template.

Health Check: Here one can modify the rules.

Enter all. Click SAVE to mark the changes.

Now we can assign this Subscription Template to different subscription products as discussed above.
