Bold Subscriptions Pro integrates with Bold Checkout to provide your store with the benefits of having its own built-in checkout, and the ability to offer subscription options to your customers.
This comprehensive step-by-step is for stores that are setting up both Bold Checkout and Subscriptions Pro at the same time.
Let's get started!
- Install the Bold Checkout app, and Bold Subscriptions Pro app to your BigCommerce store
Visit Bold Commerce - Subscriptions to install the Subscriptions app on your store.
- Connect your Payment Gateway in Bold Checkout
Checkout uses its own version of the BigCommerce checkout to process its orders. Because of this, the app needs an attached payment gateway in order to accept payments for your customers orders.
Note: If you are already actively using either one of these apps, you need to use the same payment gateway in order for this integration to work correctly.
Visit our article on Setting up a Payment Gateway in Bold Checkout for more information on how to enable your payment gateway within our app.
- Add Shipping Zones
Within Bold Checkout, the shipping zones are how the app determines where your store will ship to, and how much it will cost to ship to that region of the world.
For more information on settings this up, please visit our Shipping in Bold Checkout article.
- Set up Tax Settings
For Checkout to charge taxes on your products, there must be a tax setting specified within Checkout admin.
Please visit our Tax Settings in Bold Checkout article for more information on how to create tax zones within the app.
- Test the Checkout Functionality
We strongly suggest testing Checkouts functionality on a back-up theme before using the app on your main checkout. If any steps were missed during the set-up process, your customers temporarily may not be able to check-out on your website.
Note: This is also completed to ensure that your payment gateway is set-up, and working correctly.
Please visit our article on Placing a test order with Bold Checkout for more information on completing this step.
- Set up Bold Subscriptions Pro
Before fully completing this integration, Bold Subscriptions Pro should be set up as well.
Please visit our article on Creating a Standard Subscription Group for more information on setting this app up.
- Contact our Merchant Success Team
To complete this integration, there a few steps that our team needs to take in order for the apps to properly communicate with one another.
Note: If you are already actively using Subscriptions Pro, it may take 2-3 business days for us to enable the integration. Your current subscription customers need to be moved from Subscriptions Pro to Checkout on our server side.
Please contact our Merchant Success team for further assistance with the integration at this point.
