Troubleshooting with Bold Memberships

In this article, we are going to go over some common issues that can arise with Bold Memberships and what steps can be taken to resolve each issue.



If you are having trouble with the Bold Memberships buy button you have placed on a page not working properly, it could be that your Stripe account has not been properly connected.


PayPal is no longer a payment gateway that can be added to Memberships as of December 31st, 2020, but will still work if you have connected it previously and are outside of the EEA. For more information, please visit Bold Memberships - SCA Impact to PayPal FAQs.

Your payment gateway is set up separately from your main Shopify account settings, as Bold Memberships does not use the Shopify checkout.

If you have done this and are still having problems, please contact our Merchant Success team.

  1. From Shopify's admin, select Customers.

  3. Select the X icon on the tag associated with their membership plan.


  4. Select Save.

If this does not correct the issue, please contact our Merchant Success team for further assistance.

When a membership plan has been created within Bold Memberships, the membership can be displayed on the storefront by either adding the membership widget or buy button on a page.

When a customer is on the membership sign up page, they will need to enter a first name, last name and email address in order to signup for the membership plan, along with any additional registration fields that is created within the membership plan:


During the signup phase, if a space is added anywhere within the email address, this can cause the following error shown in the example below. To correct this issue, all space characters will need to be removed from the email address field:


If this does not correct the issue or you are experiencing other customer related signup issues, please contact our Merchant Success team for further assistance.

By default, when a membership plan has been created and has been added to your storefront, Bold Memberships will automatically add a First Name, Last Name and Email Address field that all customers must fill in when signing up for the membership.

If these fields are not appearing on a membership signup form by default, there may be a conflict with the CSS styling from your theme.

In order to show these fields on the membership signup page, please reach out to our Merchant Success team for further assistance.
