Subscription Plans

Create and apply subscription (SVOD) plans for your overall OTT service (like Netflix) or for one or multiple specific channels.

The Endavo platform allows you to create multiple subscription plans that fit the changing needs of your growing OTT business. Easily create a Global Subscription Plan that you can apply to all channels in your content library. Or, create bundle (pack) or single-channel (a la carte) subscription plans to apply to specific channels and let your viewers create their own bundles of subscriptions. A la carte subscriptions are especially useful if you are building a multi-channel creator network and let channel partner sell their own channel subscriptions. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Before you can offer subscription plans to your viewers, you must have a Stripe account (Payment Gateway) set up and connected to your Endavo account. If you haven't connected Stripe yet, CLICK HERE for instructions.
