Payment Options & Eligibility in Subscriptions for Shopify Checkout

  • Updated

In order for Bold Subscriptions to process subscription transactions on your store, you will need to have a Shopify supported payment gateway connected and activated in your Shopify store. This is because Shopify creates a subscription contract, which allows your customer's payment method to be reused. At this time, subscription orders can only be purchased via credit card.

This article outlines the eligibility requirements and supported payment gateways at this time. Other payment methods may become available in the future.




To ensure that your store is eligible to use Subscriptions for Shopify Checkout, please review the information below.

  • Your store must use Shopify Payments,, PayPal Express, or Stripe.

    Note: For migrations, Shopify Payments or are required due to Shopify's checkout limitations. Stripe and Shopify Payments eligibility is controlled by Shopify directly. If your store is receiving a message about being ineligible, please contact Shopify for more information.

  • Shop Pay and Google Pay are compatible accelerated checkouts.

Shop Pay is an accelerated checkout that allows customers to check out faster by populating the checkout with previously stored information. Shop pay is exclusively available through the Shopify checkout and now supports subscriptions purchases. For more information, please visit Activate Shop Pay.




  • You must not have an existing subscription service. An existing subscription service may cause frontend compatibility issues. 
  • Accelerated checkouts such as Amazon Pay, Apple Pay, Klarna, mollie iDEAL, and Sofort are not supported for subscription purchases.

    Note: These options can be used for one time orders but will not appear in the checkout for customers purchasing an order with a subscription.
