How to create a custom subscription

Custom subscriptions allow you to grant access to content in your apps via an email and password login system. Using custom subscriptions you can make sure that existing subscribers from your website, print or other channels can get access to your content in your native apps.

1. Add the email address

You will need an email address of your existing subscriber in order to create a custom subscription for them. You have the option to confirm their email immediately or send a confirmation email with a verification link they need to click on to approve.

2. create a password

Create a password for the new custom subscriber. You have the option to either type a custom password or leave the field blank to generate a random password.

3. define start and end dates

Determine which start and end date the custom subscription should cover. Typically the start date will be from the date your reader purchased a subscription. The end date can be left blank which will let the subscription run until cancelled by adding an end date.

Any paid, hidden, subscribe and unlock issue types will be made available for the reader in the defined date range.

4. Add Subscription

Click the add subscription button to create the reader and custom subscription. The reader will receive an email with their login details and can now access content in your apps.
