# Subscriptions

# Overview

AccelByte Cloud’s Subscriptions service gives you a way to monetize your video games in the long term. You can create a set of subscription plans for the players, manage the subscription content such as choosing the game or item as exclusive content for each plan, and you can also decide the price for each plan. Players can sign up for their desired plans and will be able to access all of the exclusive content in the plans through the player portal.
