Voluntary Churn Prevention


Voluntary churn happens when a customer decides to end the relationship and stops using your product or downgrades from a paid version. Preventing voluntary churn requires the right combination of product engagement, customer experience, and perceived value. If customers don’t use your product often, don’t have a good experience when they do or don’t see value in your product, they won’t stick with you. This holds true whether you’re talking about free trial users considering a paid upgrade or paying customers deciding whether to renew.

Voluntary Churn Prevention Tools 

Reduce voluntary churn and revenue spillage and uplift your revenues by up to 10% by using 2Checkout's Voluntary Churn Prevention tools. 

  • Offer discounts during the churn process to entice price-sensitive subscribers to stay. Activate a churn prevention campaign, and make discounts attractive enough to make a difference.  

  • Offer subscribers the option to pause their subscriptions instead and then have these automatically resume at a specific date without reacquisition costs, using the pauseSubscription API.  

  • Extend the subscription duration and ask subscribers to re-enable automatic renewal right after they cancel it, to minimize the chances of them churning.  

  • Allow subscribers to downgrade to plans not as rich in functionality but which are also cheaper using custom downgrade links.
