Learn how to create unlimited subscriptions with SamCart.
SamCart helps you easily create unlimited recurring subscriptions - both with and without trial periods! Recurring subscriptions are subscriptions with no end date.
Create Your Subscription
Start by navigating to your Products (1) tab and clicking + New Product (2).
You will define your product’s pricing structure in the popup that appears. Let’s take a look at each of the options:
- Product name: This is the product name that will appear in your customer’s receipts and emails.
- Description: Enter a brief description of your product. This section is optional and used for internal use only.
- Pricing type: To create a recurring subscription, select Recurring. A recurring subscription bills at regular intervals and has no end date. If you would like to create a subscription with an end date, check out our Limited Subscriptions article.
- Subscription Price: The recurring subscription price.
- Recurring Period: This is how often your subscription will bill - weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly, or custom days.
- Trial Period: Toggle this to ‘On’ if you would like your subscription to include a trial period.
- Trial Period: The length of your trial period in days.
- Initial Price: If you are setting up a Paid Trial, this is the price of that paid trial. This fee will be charged immediately upon purchase.
- Create Product: When you’re all done, click Create Product to move on to setting up your product page and details!

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I change the recurring price for an existing product?
A: Any subscription-based product that has (or had) active subscribers cannot have its pricing structure changed. If you want to update the price, we suggest creating a duplicate product at the appropriate price and setting up a checkout redirect that points to the newly remade product.
