Set up your Payment Gateway with Bold Subscriptions


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 subscription. To do this, we need a payment gateway to store that information safely and securely.

To set this up, please follow these steps:

  1. From Shopify's admin, select Apps.

    Select Apps

  2. Select Recurring Orders & Subscriptions by Bold.

    Select Recurring Orders & Subscriptions by Bold

  3. Select Settings, then Payment Gateway.

    Select Settings/Payment Gateway

  4. 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 Subscriptions.

    sign up for a payment gateway

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

    Note: Steps will vary depending on the selected gateway.

    Connect To Stripe

  6. Select Sign in with Stripe to connect.

    select sign in with stripe to connect

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

    log in

  8. Verify and update the Stripe account information.

    verify and update the stripe account information

  9. 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.

  • We have a payment gateway that is not listed in Supported Payment Gateways in Bold Subscriptions. How do I go about setting it up to use bold subscriptions? Please advise. Thanks

  • Hey Ben!

    Thanks so much for reaching out :) Unfortunately if your current gateway provider is not listed as one of our supported payment gateways, you won't be able to natively connect them to Bold Subscriptions.

    However, we're always looking for ways to improve our products and would love to hear which gateway you want to connect to the app! If you drop a line to our Support team they'll be glad to pass this information along to our developers to see if this is something we could include in a future update.

    If you'd like to pursue a custom integration just for your site, I would suggest reaching out to our Custom Solutions team to see if this is something they could integrate specifically for your store :)

    Please let us know if you have any further questions from here and we'll be more than happy to assist!
