Set up Your Payment Gateway with Recurring Orders

When your customers subscribe to a product in your store, they are taken to a special recurring checkout which captures their payment information for that recurring order. To do this, we need a payment gateway to store that information safely and securely.

To set this up, 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 Payment Gateway.

    Select Payment Gateway 

  5. Navigate to one of the Supported Payment Gateways and set up an account.

    Note: Stripe and BrainTree are our recommended gateways.  They are the ones that have been tested most extensively with Recurring Orders.

    sign up for a payment gateway 

  6. Back in the app select Connect to Stripe (as an option).

    Note: Steps will vary depending on the selected gateway.

    select connect to stripe 

  7. Select Sign in with Stripe to connect.

    select sign in with stripe to connect 

  8. Enter the email addresspassword, and select Sign in to your account.

    log in 

  9. Verify and update the Stripe account information.

    verify and update the stripe account information 

  10. Select Authorize access to this account.

    select authorize access to this account 

That's it!

At this point, we highly recommend processing a test subscription with a real credit card to ensure everything has been set up correctly.
