Make Shopify Accounts Required or Optional in Recurring Orders

Shopify accounts are needed for a customer to manage their subscription after making a purchase. For more information on this feature, visit Shopify Account Settings for Recurring Orders.

To make Shopify accounts required or optional in Recurring Orders, follow these steps:

  1. From "Shopify Admin", select Apps.

    Select Apps

  2. Select Recurring Orders & Subscriptions by Bold.

    Select Recurring Orders & Subscriptions by Bold

  3. Select Settings.

    Select Settings

  4. Select General.

    Select General

  5. Scroll down to "Customer Accounts" and select Accounts are required, or Accounts are optional:
    • Accounts are required - a customer will not be able to checkout until they register for or log in to a Shopify Account. Requiring a login tends to lower conversion rates.
    • Accounts are optional - a customer can checkout through the Recurring Orders checkout without creating a Shopify account. They will not be able to manage their subscription until they create an account using the email address they used to process the order.

  6. Select Save.
