There are a few things you'll need to do in order to set up recurring payments for selling subscription products in Shopify:
Create a subscription product in your Shopify admin
Set up a billing interval and price for the subscription
Choose a billing threshold and cycle
Configure your payment settings
Set up shipping for your subscription products
Here's a more detailed explanation of each of these steps:
- Create a subscription product in your Shopify admin
To create a subscription product, go to Products > Add product in your Shopify admin. Then, select the subscriptions checkbox under Product type and enter the details for your product.
- Set up a billing interval and price for the subscription
In the Billing section, you can specify how often the subscription should be billed, as well as the price.
- Choose a billing threshold and cycle
The billing threshold is the point at which a subscription order is generated and charged. The billing cycle is the time between billing thresholds.
- Configure your payment settings
In the Payment section, you can choose whether to bill the full amount up front, or to bill a portion of the total up front and the remainder over the course of the subscription.
- Set up shipping for your subscription products
If you're selling physical subscription products, you'll need to set up shipping in the Shipping section. You can specify whether shipping is included in the price of the subscription, or whether it will be charged separately.
