# Manage Plans

To create plans in your Shipboard server, you need first to create Stripe plans. Stripe plans allow you to configure the trial days and price for each plan.

TIP

You don't need to create a FREE plan. It is by default configured in Shipboard and it's NOT required to be created in Stripe as well.

Go to Stripe Dashboard then Billing then Products and click on new button to create a new product. The product is simply a container of your plans list. You can name it whatever you want. After creating it, head into it and click on Add pricing plan
