What Determines the Start Date for a Client's Product?

When selling products to clients using the Stripe Integrated Payments add-on, the start date of the product can vary depending on how the product was sold to the client. This article explains the differences between client self-purchases and manual sales, and how these affect product start dates.


Client Self-Purchase

When a client self-purchases a product (through a product link/checkout link, Trainerize.me webpage, or by sharing a product offer in-app), the start date of the product is determined by the settings you configured during product setup.

When creating a product, you will set the start date for the product as shown below:

Manual Sale

When performing a manual sale to existing clients in your account, you have the flexibility to choose a specific start date for each sale. This allows you to customize the product start date to fit the client's needs, overriding the default product start settings indicated earlier.

Remember: Product automation (i.e. automating content delivery, programs, adding clients to groups, etc) depends on how you have set up your product automation settings.
