Integration Takes Minutes... Not Days or Weeks!


PayWhirl has the easiest integration process of all the subscription apps on the market. You just install the PayWhirl app, setup your payment plans, setup widget(s), then copy your embed code and paste it into your website.

After you copy/paste a widget into your site, you can immediately begin processing subscriptions on Shopify. Any customers who complete purchases through PayWhirl widgets or forms will also be created as Shopify customers. and whenever payment(s) are successfully processed, order(s) will be automatically be generated in Shopify! You can also choose how the orders are passed into Shopify (eg. on ALL payments, the FIRST payment, LAST payment, etc.)

If you already have an automated fulfillment solution such as ShipStation setup to work with your incoming Shopify orders, it's no problem, your PayWhirl subscription orders are no different! For example, if you have a customer on a monthly subscription plan in PayWhirl and you already have ShipStation setup to create shipping labels for new orders, every month after you successfully process their payment a new order will be automatically created in your Shopify store and a shipping label will be automatically created in ShipStation.

Automatic Payments & Flexible Order Generation

Tired of chasing down clients for payment? Process recurring revenue (weekly, monthly, annually, etc.) by selling recurring services, memberships, subscriptions and/or anything else that requires automatic recurring payments. PayWhirl also supports payment plans with a fixed number of installments (layaway programs, Etc).

Orders are generated in Shopify based on your needs. You have the ability to select if orders are generated on EVERY payment, the FIRST payment and/or the LAST payment on subscriptions. You can also set what we call a "billing start date" to make sure orders are generated only on a specific day of the month if needed.

Secure Payment Processing

Stripe is our partner payment gateway (the same people who power Shopify Payments). They are certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1, the most stringent level of certification. Everything is processed over SSL (https) connections and is encrypted using Stripe's libraries. They also automatically handle any necessary currency conversions so that you can instantly charge customers in over 130 local currencies with piece of mind.

If for some reason you'd like to use a gateway besides Stripe we also support PayPal, BrainTree & Authorize.net on our Ultimate Plan.

Completely Customize Widgets & Payment Forms

Get creative with PayWhirl's visual editor! You can easily change the look of your subscription widget(s) in seconds without coding! With millions of available combinations, you can style PayWhirl's responsive payment widgets to fit seamlessly within any theme or page on your website. NOTE: You can also use custom css to override any of the styling if needed for more control.

Checkout Questions & Custom Subscriber Profiles

Need to ask your customers specific questions before they checkout? No Problem! On PayWhirl you can add custom profile questions that must be answered before checkout (they can also be optional). This information is attached to your subscriber profiles and can be viewed or updated in the back-end of PayWhirl (as an admin) or in your reports as well. Customers can login and update their profile questions at anytime within the customer portal.

Example: Before a monthly coffee shipment a customer might want to update their preference from a light roast to dark or whole bean to ground. They could do this by logging in and updating their custom profile questions in their account between shipments.

Customer Portal & Login


On PayWhirl your customers will have the ability to login and manage their own profile information securely (credit card numbers, address, custom questions, etc.). PayWhirl customers will also be able to login to both Shopify themes and/or PayWhirl widgets with the same credentials. We also offer a hosted version of the customer portal if you do not wish to embed anything into your website.

How Does PayWhirl's Pricing Work?

We offer a few different pricing tiers on the new version of PayWhirl



  • 1) STARTER - No monthly fees (FREE) and 3% of processing

  • 2) PW PRO - $49/month and 2% of processing

  • 2) PW PLUS - $149/month and 1% of processing.

  • 2) PW ULTIMATE - $249/month and 0.5% of processing.

  • 2) PW ENTERPRISE - Contact us for rates lower then 0.50%

In addition to PayWhirl’s fee, you will pay a processing fee to Stripe on each transaction. For example, if you are on PayWhirl PLUS, your PayWhirl processing rate is 1%. If you also live in the United States, your default Stripe processing rate would be 2.9% + 30¢ per transaction on credit cards.

This would bring your total to 3.9% + 30¢ per transaction. However, if, for example, you live in Australia, your rate would be different. In Australia Stripe's domestic rate is1.75% + 30¢ per transaction which, when combined with PayWhirl PRO, would give you a total transaction fee of 2.75% +30¢ per transaction.

NOTE: The totals above are for credit / debit card transactions. If you're using ACH then the rates are cheaper for Stripe (currently 0.80% for ACH transfers).

The fees above only apply to transactions that happen on PayWhirl's payment forms or widgets. You will NOT be charged any additional fees on transactions that flow through your existing shopify cart.

Our US based support staff would be happy to help get you setup and answer any questions! We're on live chat during US business hours (Pacific Time PST) on the website and you can schedule a phone call from within your account anytime.

Recurring Payments, Subscriptions & Invoicing by PayWhirl reviews (34)

A fantastic subscription solution - especially for digital products. Their Support could be a bit better though, as trying to get in contact with someone is extremely hard

I have been having a difficult time with another App and am beyond pleased with the simplicity and user friendliness of PayWhirl. I am not savvy at all with code and all that jazz and they make super easy for someone like me. This App is intergrates into my store perfectly.

posted

I like paywhirl and we are offering subscription payments with them, but I have two major issues. One is that orders originating with Paywhirl post to Shopify but those orders do not post to shipstation (our shipping solution). When I post from paywhirl to shipstation and shopify, then when we mark the order as fulfilled in shipstation it doesn't fullfill the order in shopify, so we get orphaned orders hanging around in shopify. Integrations are hell, but this is just the reality of the job of a company like Paywhirl. Get in there guys and figure this out.

Paywhirl has definitely helped us to offer subscription services to our customers, however, I must say that I am not able to give them 5 stars as their communication is absolutely dreadful. There is no way to contact paywhirl besides live chat and scheduling a call. First of all live chat is not actually live and takes about 3-5 days to actually respond. Furthermore, to schedule a call take several days as well. So if you need any kind of immediate help, you're screwed.

Paywhirl also charged us $49 for the pro plan, than an additional 249 for the ultimate. When we asked for the 249 back as it was not authorized we were told a refund would be issued, and still wait over a week later for said refund, and no one to contact either. With a service like this they need to have an actual form of live communication. Just not feasible otherwise.

Pay whirl is absolutely terrific! Support is very strong, and the help screens and documentation are the best I've seen for any Shopify app.

Actually - better than Shopify's support itself.

Flexible and easy to implement, Paywhirl is a great payment app that you can use on Shopify - or any other platform.

Larry was a huge help in nailing down some of the finer details, as well.

Ryan and his team really went out of their way to ensure that our migration with Paywhirl to our live site was a frictionless experience. Highly recommend!

Only reason for giving one less star is for lack of support... two, sometimes three day turnaround on responses is pretty bad. Investing in a support staff for their chat would help a ton versus having someone on there every once in a while. Catering to the non-savvy user that Shopify markets towards could help you guys out a bunch.

Other than that - great functionality on the Classic version. Definitely need to roll over some of the features from the Classic to the New version thats in Beta.

Paywhirl has been incredible to work with. They helped us move quickly to set everything up exactly how we wanted it. If you are looking for recurring payments and/or subscriptions, these guys are awesome! I have complete trust that they will help us quickly if we need to make changes or if there seems to be a problem.

Great app, solved a large issue we had in our store.
Much thanks to the professional team!

Tons of customization... we were able to modify terms like "subscriptions" to "rentals" (which fits our business model better).
