This topic describes how to create and order subscription and membership dues products. Subscription and membership dues products are very similar in that they both generally recognize revenue over a period of time. A subscription’s revenue is recognized each time an issue is sent out, and a membership’s revenue is spread out over the membership period. Both products include additional functionality beyond a standard product.

Membership products, in addition to functioning like subscriptions in terms of how they are fulfilled and their revenue recognize, also update a person’s or company’s membership type when purchased through the Aptify Order Entry system.
