Your Shopify store needs… recharge recurring billing & subscriptions app

Your Shopify store needs… recharge recurring billing & subscriptions app

In our ad hoc new blog series Your Shopify Store Needs… we’ll be letting you know when we come across an app or tool we think can add value to ecommence websites. Kicking things off is subscription payment app ReCharge.

If you can make recurring payments work for your ecommerce business, you are well on the way to success. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to work out that repeatedly selling the same product or service to the same person is a efficient way to generate turnover while minimising the cost of sales.

And if you are going to make a success of recurring payments, you will want the ReCharge Recurring Billing & Subscriptions app for Shopify to help you manage the operation (read our comparison post of the most popular Shopify subscription apps).

We’re still playing around with the app, but we’ve seen enough to know that it is a very impressive tool and the best method of collecting subscription payments via Shopify that we have seen so far. We do know, however, that they power the #1 subscription store on Shopify, Hubble Contacts. Hubble was able to use the ReCharge API and a Javascript API to combine the product details page and cart into one seamless experience.

It comes with a 90-day free trial, so there is plenty of opportunity for you to make sure it is going to work for your business before making a financial commitment. After the three-month trial it is just $19.99 per month plus 1% on all recurring orders.

The app works well for recurring purchases of products and services, subscription boxes and subscribe and save deals, so it supports a host of business models and can help to introduce a subscription element to even a standard ecommerce model.

ReCharge also allows for gift subscriptions, time-limited subscriptions and customisable subscription frequency and renewals - plenty of scope to fine-tune the setup and make sure it does what your business needs it to do.

They recently announced a benefit to Shopify Plus stores including reduced pricing, access to their recently announced API, as well as early access to new features. Learn more here.
