Subscription Policies for Subscriptions for Shopify Checkout

  • Updated

In compliance with Shopify policy when using Subscriptions for Shopify Checkout, a link to your subscription policies is included on your store. This article will show you where this link is displayed, as well as show you how to set up your subscription policy in Shopify.

It is recommended to update the policy as your store requires, as you are responsible for your published policies. For more information, please visit Shopify’s article: Adding store policies.

If you are using the App Widget Block on Shopify 2.0 themes, your customers will be directed to a 404 error page if your subscription policy is not set up. When using the standard widget, Shopify will display their default subscription policy text until your own policy is set up.




The link to your subscription policy is displayed in both the cart page and subscription widget when using the App Widget Block on Shopify 2.0 themes. If you are using the standard subscription widget, it will be displayed on the cart page only.
