What are Subscriptions by Recharge?
Subscriptions by Recharge is a popular subscription application that allows merchants to offer product subscriptions to their users.
If you are a Shogun user subscribed under a current (not depreciated) plan, you have access to our Recharge Widget, which is the most straightforward solution to implement to get subscription content to render on your non-product forms in the context of the Product Box.
If you are not seeing this option, and are on a depreciated plan type or version, you can visit the Pick a Plan page, where you can find a prompt either to 'update' your plan to a current iteration, or select a current plan in the event you are subscribed under a plan no longer available to new sign-ups.
Once you have a valid plan and products in your store with a subscription option provided by Recharge, enabling the widget is a one-step process.
You will find if you scroll to the 'Integrations' section of the Dashboard, located at the bottom of the 'Settings' page, the option to 'Enable' Recharge.
Clicking 'Save' while ensuring you followed the steps listed above that prompt will enable the Recharge Widget in the editor experience.
If you add a Product Price element to the page and publish it, on a published page you should notice the discount configured in the Recharge dashboard being applied to Product Price if you select the subscription option.
The Recharge integration will only work when the Add to Cart button's click behavior is set to "Go to Cart" or "Stay on Page." The integration's functionality is not compatible with the "Go directly to checkout" option.
Styling the Recharge Element in Shogun is not supported, however, you can style Recharge elements under
Storefront -> Subscription Widgetin the Recharge dashboard.
I don't have a current plan; What can I do?
Regardless of your subscription plan with us, you will find you can leverage Recharge for product pages using the 'existing layout'.
Recharge relies on the theme's built-in Add to Cart buttons to function off the shelf. The Custom Layout does not contain the theme's built-in components, so Recharge will not work with this template by default.
Frequently Asked Questions
My Recharge Element does not display in the Editor or on the live page.
If your recharge element does not display on the live page there are a few common causes:
Your product associated with the Product Box isn't actually imported into Recharge. Any product you add to your page inside a Product Box needs to be imported to recharge in order for Shogun to render appropriate options as set up in Recharge.
If you have been creating new products via the process of duplication and haven't first removed the product from Recharge as directed in their documentation, you may find that your subscriptions end up pointing at products that aren't actually imported into Recharge.
You may find you need to retroactively perform this step and reimport the products that should be associated with a subscription in order to write the correct values to the associated meta fields.
Widgets need to be published in Recharge in order for them to render on Shogun-created pages and inside the product box. Instructions on doing that can be found here.
Our widget only supports the latest version of ReCharge integration with Shopify (Shopify Checkout Integration) which has been live since November 2020.
