We’re excited to share with you that as part of the 2022-07 API release, Shopify is adding new functionality to the Selling Plan API, which currently supports subscriptions, to also support deferred purchase options including pre-orders, try before you buy, and more.
With deferred purchase options, you can build functionality for merchants that want to allow payment and fulfillment to happen at different times. You can enable taking deposits. Shopify will store a customer's payment method and enable merchants to collect the remaining balance amount without contacting the customer.
Start building with our Selling Plan APIs
