Supplier Surfing: Competition and Consumer Behavior in Subscription Markets
2. Subscription-based auto services
Preparing for the Subscription Mobile Immersive
Recent research indicates an accelerating trend of companies across sectors adopting subscription-based business models. For example, a study from Supplier Surfing analyzed the competitive dynamics in subscription markets and found a detectable shift. Additionally, automotive retailers like Mobiliti are beginning to offer subscription services for vehicles.
3. Step-by-step User Interface
When "getting started" with the wizard, you are introduced to a range of options that are bespoke to your affordability. As you interact with Zh)m, the interface presents a progress bar near the top of the screen to distinctively show progress. Always moving forward, you can also go back a step and change what you want. My aim is to give flexibility while still maintaining a sense of user guidance.

4. Flexible payment methods
This is not new data that enabling flexible digital payment options appears key for frictionless subscriptions. However, I created the concept back in early 2018, and a 2018 piece from Simon-Kucher shows debit cards dominate mobile payments, so I set credit as the default option. While I did not update any of the ui design for Zh)m since 2018, here in 2023, defaulting to credit / debit as main payment still holds true. I even saw this at Camping World while we sorted through payment options for enhancing retail conversions, which you can read about here.

How behavioral science can unleash digital payments adoption: Consumer Survey Report
In summary, early signals suggest an opportunity for sensory-driven mobile experiences and flexible payment options to play a role in future auto subscription services. But significant research is still needed to validate these hypotheses and quantify actual impact on consumer behavior. As the market evolves, designing human-centric subscriptions could become a competitive advantage for forward-thinking automotive brands.
