Recurring Monthly Payment Solutions

Hi Dallas,

 

Hope it's alright I'm opening an old post.

 

I'm in a somewhat similar situation and having a hard time finding a solution.

 

I'm in the process of setting up my first shop, and I need to set it up in a leasing sort of payment way. It's a product that customers can "subscribe" to by paying each month. They only get the initial product - there are no recurring shipments, only payment for as long as they hold onto the product. 

 

I'm a bit overwhelmed with the apps I've tried so far, and can't seem to find a proper solution. 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Kind regards

Gavin

Hey, Gavin! 

 

I would love to help you. In order for me to not throw resources in your face that you have already seen or tried and don't feel like they have worked, are you able to give me a bit of a summary for what you have tried so far? 

 

I look forward to working with you further.

Hey Dallas,

 

Thanks for the quick reply!

I've tried using these plugins so far:

- Recurring orders & subscription box by Bold.

- ReCharge recurring billing and subscriptions.

- PayWhirl

 

I've been in contact with ReCharge and PayWhirls customer support, and both are telling me that Shopifys internal structure doesn't work with the way I need it to, and that's also why the big plugins don't allow for it.

 

I'm also not entirely sure where to look since this is my first time setting up a store. I haven't tried anything further than that, except panic emailing to customer service of different plugins to see if their plugin can help, and post on forums. 

 

To recap, I need to come up with a way that'll allow this system to work somehow:

 

The customer subscribes to a camera, they get the camera upon their first payment, they'll keep paying a monthly subscription fee until they return the camera.

 

Please let me know if there's anything else I can do.

 

Thanks again!

 

Edit: I'm going to try PayWhirl and see if I can get this to work through their plug-in, but I'm open to trying anything. Cheers. :)

Hey there! 

 

That is a bit of a tricky one and to be honest, I am not really sure we have an app that is meant for exactly what you're needing. However, I have done some digging for you! 

 

I found an app that has the ability for recurring invoices. This means that you would be able to bill your customers repeatedly, which is what you need by the sounds of it. The app is called Recurring Order & Subscription.  Have you tried to see if that one will work or not? 

 

I am going to do some more digging on this to see if I can find anything else next week when all of Shopify is back in the office. I want to see if I can find a working option for you in an app form because it is easier to add to your store and use it right away. However, if you would like someone to build a custom app with exactly the features that you need you could reach out to the Shopify Experts! They're very talented when it comes to building brilliant apps from the ground up. With that said, I still can't promise they will be able to get this built for you, but as a last resort, it might be worth an option. 

 

If I find out more information about this I will let you know, but please let me know how that app works for you.
