Recurring Orders Version 2.0 was launched on March 15, 2017. The changes are outlined here.
We Now Offer Convertible Subscriptions
Convertible subscriptions allow you to offer an upsell subscription when a customer is purchasing a product from your store, or automatically swap products between a customer's first and second order.
For example: When selling a coffee maker, offer a subscription on coffee filters, or if buying a printer, offer a subscription on ink.
This new feature even integrates with our Subscription Discount and Dynamic Discounts in Recurring Orders that launched in February. This means that you can offer a discount on the subscription product of a full price item to entice them to subscribe. Or even offer the initial item free with no future discounts (great when offering a free trial-size product with a subscription to the full-size item).
New Tracking Options for Facebook Pixel
You can find these new integration options under Settings -> Integration -> Facebook Tracking. Just insert your Facebook Pixel ID, and you're good to go.
Checkout Terms and Conditions
You can now enable a Terms and Conditions element to your Recurring Orders checkout. Just insert the link to your store's Terms and Conditions page, and customers won't be able to checkout without agreeing to them. Visit Create Terms and Conditions for the Checkout to learn how to use this feature.
When viewing a recurring order in Shopify you can now easily see what the subscription order count is. Want to know if it's a customer’s first order, the tenth order, or fiftieth order? You can now easily find out when looking at the Shopify order. You can choose to enable this feature under Settings -> General.
Reward your loyal subscribers who've stuck around, or throw in a pamphlet on their first order.
- Customers were unable to update Shopify shipping rates that contained an apostrophe. This bug has been fixed.
- Accessing our Recurring Orders checkout on a mobile browser allowed the entering of spaces, but would produce an invalid error if they tried to process with spaces between the numerical characters. Mobile access of our checkout will now no longer allow you to type in a space.
- Due to different time zones - some merchants were not able to create a discount code and use it instantly. You can now create a discount code that is applicable immediately.
