Cart transform function subscription support

Hi when I was testing my cart transform function, I noticed it worked well for my cart normally, but when I tried to add selling plans to the cart, the transform function does not work and the checkout UI does not update.


Wondering does the cart transform function support subscription orders currently? If not, would we expect it to be supported in the future?

Hi JefferyYC,


The cart transform function currently does not support subscription orders. This is because subscription orders typically involve recurring payments and potentially different pricing structures, which may not fit within the existing cart transform function's capabilities. 


I have passed on support for this usecase as a feature request however so thanks for flagging this!

bump - we have a lot of merchants stringing together multiple apps instead of using native Shopify functionality for precisely this reason. right now we're forced to use the discount functions api to set up 'bundles' instead of transform since the pricing is easier to manage

Bump - Subscription bundles are a pretty requested for use case and all the current solutions with discounts are hacky - doesn't seem native
