Subscription / recurring payments

It's becoming increasingly annoying that Shopify doesn't offer subscription payments. Has anyone had any luck with a Shopify expert that could build this out so you don't have to use a third party? Using third party makes the process way more confusing for customers and user experience, especially on the phone. I don't want to go through the work of building a completely new website on a different platform just for this.

Hello Marlena! 

Kassey here from the Shopify Guru Team! We do appreciate your feedback on the Shopify platform, and I will be sure to let our team know about your feature request, however - we currently have quite a few apps that would allow you to do subscription or recurring billing charges, like Recurring Orders & Subscriptions by Bold and ReCharge Recurring Billing & Subscriptions - be sure to check them all out here

I hope this helps, but if you have any further questions - be sure to reach out to Shopify support!

Hey Marlena,

A few weeks ago we've released our new Recurring Payments & Subscription Boxes app for recurring billing feature implementation.

✔️ New Shopify subscription app for selling physical products and subscription boxes;

✔️ Use Shopify Billing API: no extra commissions, no additional billing fee, 100+ payment options;

✔️ Automatic invoices instead of billing.

And what is more important - it's free to use!

Add us to the list of shops looking for an alternative to Shopify due to this. Silly, been 'coming soon' for years.

Referring to apps, in this case, is a hack at best. They need to replace your checkout which then also breaks other third-party apps you have installed, coupons, etc stop working. I love Shopify, but it is certainly not staying current. Couple that with them preventing new merchant payment integrations to push people to their own it's going away from the customer-focused organization that won them peoples business in the first place.

Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't your app simply send an invoice to the customer, of which they have to respond to and manually pay each month?  Doesn't that kinda defeat the purpose of a subscription?

Definitely want to see this native in Shopify.  Other apps won't work right if we were to use this.

Shopify, why no progress with this; why are you not listening to your customers?

If I can't find a solution ASAP, I have no other option than to move my site to another e-commerce platform.
