Sometimes store administrators will want to restrict access to sections of the site to just customers who have made certain purchases - for instance, ebooks, music downloads, license keys, etc. The easiest way to do this is to use subscription products and topics that are restricted to customers who have purchased them.

Making A Subscription Product

1. Go to Product Manager and choose the product you want to set as subscription product.

2. On the Product Variant’s level, go to Subscription Interval field and specify the length of the subscription.

3. Next, go to Interval Type and choose from the dropdown list.

4. Click Update button.

NOTE: For versions 9200 through 9410 please review this article.
