Our Approach to Tackle the Challenge

1Build
Subscriptions

We implemented Basic and Premium tiers with monthly or yearly payment options. The smooth user interface takes care of various scenarios, including:

  • Enabling features, such as job search, only if the subscription is active
  • Enabling additional features, such priority messages, for premium provider accounts 
  • Calculating pro-rata usage when users up/downgrade subscription tiers 
  • Cancellations don’t affect access before current subscription period ends
