The Migration Deadline

If you leverage a legacy solution to process your subscription transactions (like Recharge's checkout), Shopify is mandating that by October 18, 2024 you migrate to Shopify Checkout. This means that you will either need to migrate to Recharge's new checkout solution or find another subscription management solution that integrates with Shopify Checkout.

If you are not familiar with Upscribe, we are a retention management solution that helps fast growing Shopify merchants build, grow and scale their subscription and reorder business. To date, Upscribe processes over $1 billion in subscription revenue annually from some of the fastest growing Shopify brands such as Athletic Greens and RYZE Superfoods.

What is Shopify Checkout?

Shopify Checkout is Shopify's native checkout solution that allows you to accept orders and take payments wherever you sell online. When you sign up to sell online with Shopify, Shopify Checkout comes natively with your subscription with Shopify so as long as you are a Shopify customer, you don't need to purchase any additional software in order to have Shopify Checkout.

Benefits of Shopify Checkout

Leveraging Shopify Checkout to process your subscription transactions has advantages for your entire business. By enabling Shopify Checkout, you will be able to integrate other third party Shopify apps with Shopify Checkout - allowing you to integrate all of your solutions with Shopify Checkout creating a seamless, more connected experience for you.

Additional benefits of Shopify Checkout include the ability to leverage Shopify Payments, which allow you to accept credit cards and any other form of payment (such as Apple or Google Pay) instantly. Having this enabled will help you boost overall conversion, as according to a recent study, merchants that have Shopify Payments enabled see a lift in conversion by as much as 50% when compared to guest checkout, outpacing other accelerated checkouts by at least 10%.

Shopify Checkout is also faster than other checkout solutions. A fast checkout will make it more likely that customers will make it through the checkout process and convert.
