The subscription e-commerce market is expected to reach $904.2 billion by 2026. Despite those projections, many consumers are already experiencing subscription fatigue. 


With the average consumer managing 12 media and entertainment subscriptions simultaneously, providing a user-friendly way to track and adjust all their subscriptions can help you set your company apart as a leader in the financial sector.



A subscription management tool brings all components of subscription services into a single dashboard. It gives your customers centralized visibility to their list of current subscriptions and their recurring costs. For the best customer experience, leading subscription management platforms provide the ability for your customers to cancel any unwanted subscription directly.


The benefits of adopting subscription management software include:



The financial sector changes at a rapid pace, and finding ways to leverage your company's unique selling points (USPs) is essential for staying competitive. Launching a subscription management tool in your online experience can establish your company as:


Customer-focused: Features like subscription management tools provide additional value to the customer, which shows you care about delivering quality service.

Innovative: Financial institutions are still in the early stages of integrating subscription management tools into their existing services, so offering your own can help you build a reputation as an industry leader.

Forward-thinking: Adding to and upgrading your existing service list demonstrates your commitment to continuous improvement, which is essential for long-term success in a constantly shifting industry.

By eliminating the need to spend valuable time and resources developing and deploying your own solution an embedded subscription management platform significantly shortens time-to-market. You'll be able to realize the benefits of your solution in just a fraction of the time a traditional model would take.



In one recent Forrester study of U.S. banking customers, 47% of participants said subscription management tools would be a useful feature in online banking experiences. The average customer has at least five retail subscriptions, most of which they manage through disparate systems. Without centralized visibility into their subscriptions, it's difficult to remember which subscriptions are still active.


A subscription management tool puts some of that agency back into their hands by:


Providing visibility: By bringing all of a customer's subscriptions into one centralized location, subscription management features give customers a better understanding of their usual expenses.

Simplifying management: Your customers can use the subscription management tool to review and cancel subscriptions directly within your app or online experience, eliminating the need for long calls to customer service.

Cutting costs: With a tap or a click, customers can easily cancel subscriptions they're not using or request negotiations for better rates. These features can save them as much as $100 to $400 each year.


By providing your customers with greater transparency and control over their accounts, you can gain their trust and build more loyal customer relationships.



Leveraging a subscription management solution as a premium offering within your existing online experience unlocks new potential for revenue generation. For example, you may have several different account tiers your customers can choose from, where each tier offers different features. Including your subscription management feature in one of the higher tiers can motivate customers to upgrade their accounts, increasing your incoming cash flows.


The key is choosing a subscription management product that clearly adds value to the customer experience. Ideally, it should operate seamlessly with the rest of your online platform so your customers get one unified experience. 


Additionally, customers need to see their purchase is worth the money before they invest — providing proof through testimonials or reports can help motivate them to take advantage of this feature.




To choose the best subscription management tool for your business, consider the following factors:

Ease of use: Choose a subscription management platform that is intuitive and easy to use for both your company and your customers. The right platform will simplify complex processes and promote a better user experience, helping you retain customers and increase productivity.

Integration abilities: The right subscription tracking software should integrate with your existing customer relationship management (CRM) platform. That way, you can easily access customer data to personalize the subscriber experience. Choose a platform with embeddable components to seamlessly implement and launch the software.

Customizability: Consider a platform that allows you to customize your subscription models and other services. With a more flexible system, you can attract and retain customers while offering a personalized service.

Pricing: You'll want to consider your budget and other financial factors before choosing a subscription management platform.
