You can give the right discount at the right time to convert and retain members.
Back discount offers (BDO): are special subscription prices given to potential customers to encourage them to stay on the sign-up page and complete the process.
Cancel discount offers (CDO): are the offers presented to end users who are canceling their membership with you.
Retention discount offer (RDO): The purpose of the Retention discount offer is to encourage those customers who have already left to return and subscribe again by offering them an attractive subscription price.
Expiring discount offer (EDO): encourages users whose credit cards are close to the expiration date to renew their subscription by accepting a discount offer sent via email. One month before the credit card expiration date, a mail is sent to the user offering this offer type.
The Back Discount Offer or Backout Discount Offer ( BDO ) is a special subscription price given to potential customers to encourage them to stay on the sign-up page and complete the process.
There are two types.
Fixed Discount Offer. This is when a member canceling would be offered a dollar amount off the price they are paying to keep their membership. (Example: Get $20.00 membership price - instead of standard membership price).
Percentage Discount Offer. This is when the canceling member would see a percentage discount for the price of their current membership if they are presented the Back Discount offer. (Example: Get 50% off your membership price)
Please contact Vendo Client Services if you need help setting up your BDOs
