According to this web page (, there are limitations with subscription products:

Limitations and considerations

Retrieving subscription products isn't supported using the checkout workflow. You must use the cart workflow to retrieve subscription products.

I am not clear what this statement means.  Does it me that we cannot use the Checkout API with a subscription product?

I am hoping it is possible to do this.  I have been working with Shopify to get my Payment processing request approved.  If it is not possible to use the checkout api with subscriptions, then my request is moot.  Please advise if this is possible and exactly what the limitation means.

thank you!
