Buy Button Feature

Buy Buttons allow your customers to purchase their subscriptions more efficiently by sending them straight to the checkout.

This feature is often used in scenarios where you would like to include a link to your product within the checkout anywhere that HTML can be added. As a result, buy buttons can drive up your subscription sales!

You can use the Bold Subscriptions V1 buy button feature to:

  • Sell your subscription products on external websites like WordPress, SquareSpace, partner blogs, or wherever your Shopify store has an online presence.
  • Create unique marketing content like marketing emails and promotional content that focus on a single subscription product.
  • Link customers directly from custom Shopify hosted pages to reduce the steps to check out. Like subscription landing pages, selectable buttons, etc.

Another perfect example of a Buy Button is an automated marketing email sent directly to your customers. The link created in the app can be used on any page that supports HTML.

 Pro-Tip

The Buy Button can be styled using CSS code to match your store's style. Please visit W3 Schools - CSS for further assistance with CSS.

 


 

 


 

Buy Buttons are not compatible with the following Subscriptions features:

  • One-time purchase products
  • Recurring Cart mode
  • Build-a-box subscriptions
  • Refersion affiliate URLs / link tracking

When your customers are linked to the checkout through a Buy Button, they will be not be able to select a frequency. The subscription frequency must be selected when the Buy Button link is created inside of the Subscriptions app admin.

Buy Button links will remain active, and can be used multiple times. The only time that a link can be deactivated is when a subscription group containing the Buy Button link product is deleted from the app, or disabled (turned off).

Note: A deactivated Buy Button link can still be opened by a customer, but if the subscription group has been deleted or disabled, the link will redirect the customer to your Shopify store's home page.
