Hello,

 

I know shopify has been offering shopify's own subscription app to select stores for a while now. I am curious if there is any update on when this will be released to all stores. 

 

Having huge trouble getting shopify bundles to integrate with 3rd party apps, and I know a lot of other shopify stores would like having access to shopify subscription. Any update on this? 

 

Thank you

Hi, @tony941
Thanks for reaching out about the availability of the Shopify Subscriptions app for all stores.

 

The app was announced for early access during the Summer Editions event, and has been made available to a select group of merchants for early access. We also understand the importance of integrating with different apps as you mentioned above. While we don't have an exact timeline for the general release, I can assure you that our developers are working hard to make it happen. Thanks for your patience. 

 

Stay tuned for updates through our official channels!

Shopify's native Subscription App had its full launch on January 31st, 2024, providing an exciting option for merchants seeking subscription capabilities directly within the Shopify platform.


However, the limitation that you are facing is something that will not be immediately fixed even if you use the native Shopify Subscription App because the limitation is on the type of purchase rather than it being a third party compatibility issue:

The Shopify Subscriptions App was released in the start of 2024.
The limitation you are experiencing, where you can't apply subscription on Shopify's bundling app is a limitation of Shopify bundles at this moment (April 2024).
The thing is that the standalone bundles can't yet accept subscription options.
A workaround for this is to use the Bundler app to create a dynamic bundle and combine it with the Seal Subscriptions app. These two apps are integrated together and this allows them to show the subscription widget inside the bundle widget. This way, your customers can subscribe to your bundles.
And the best thing is that this integration also allows you to apply or remove the bundle discount if the customer edits the products in their existing subscription 🙂
