- Please build something that lets me…
I’d love the ability to begin accepting credit cards now (in time for the holiday season) for a membership that will begin in 2020 — but I’d love for everybody to not be charged until the membership actually begins.
A great example of this is how Disney is setting up their new Netflix competitor. You can check it out at https://preview.disneyplus.com/.
It allows you to sign up today — but not get charged until they officially launch.
You could presumably offer a discount for those who sign up before launch day.
- This is important to me because…
This allows me to start accepting sign-ups before the end of the year — in a season when people are still spending money. (January and February have historically been lower-spending months.)
This also lowers the barrier of entry.
- My current workaround is…
I would consider launching at a very very low rate and then raising the rate — or unfortunately just use an email sign-up and try to sell the membership to people in a few months.
Thanks for your consideration!
