How to Assign Products to a Plan Group

To offer subscription options on a product page within your store, you must add your product (or variant) to a plan group.

 

Creating a Plan Group

Therefore, before you can apply products to a subscription plan, you must first create a plan group:

  1. Within Assemble, go to Plans.
  2. Select Add group, and enter your plan group's labels into the fields.
  3. Select Create selling plan, and enter your plan's title, label, billing rules, and pricing settings.

There are two different methods of adding products to a plan group: through Products within your Shopify admin, or within the app.

 

Adding Products vs. Adding Variants

You can add either products or variants to your plan group.

By adding a product to your plan group, customers will be able to subscribe to any of the variants your selected product may have.

However, by adding the variant of a product to your plan group, customers will only be able to subscribe to that specific variant.


Method 1: Within Your Shopify Admin

 

  1. Within your Shopify admin, go to Products.
  2. Select the product you wish to add to your subscription plan.
  3. Scroll down to Subscriptions.
  4. In the upper right-hand corner, select Add option > Select existing option.
  5. Select the plan group you wish to apply to your product.
  6. Click Save.

 

 

 
Note: Due to a limitation brought in by Shopify to improve the performance of its admin space, you will only be able to add a certain number of products to a plan group through the in-app product selector. To continue applying products to a plan group beyond this limit, please use the method below.

Method 2: Within The Assemble App

 

  1. Within the Assemble app, go to Plans.
  2. Select the plan group you wish to apply your product to.
  3. Scroll down to Products and Variants.
  4. Select either Add a product or Add a variant.
  5. Select the product or variant you wish to add to your plan group, and click Save.
