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 company that powers 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 ANY of our paid plans.

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.

Customize 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.

Embeddable Customer Portal & Login Widgets

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 your payment gateway 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 and use Stripe, your default 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 is 1.75% + 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.

If you're looking for an app to handle subscriptions - this is the one you want! It also has some amazing built-in widget features for building buy-now buttons and pricing tables. Would highly recommend this app! :)


These guys totally rock! Support is A++ Love the app and all of the extra sales! We have been using it for about 6 months now. Run, don't walk, and install this!


PayWhirl does everything you want it to, no matter what you can dream up. Customer service is top notch (shout out to Larry!), and their other third-party integrations (BigCommerce, Analytics, ShipStation, etc.) make it even more appealing. Keep up the good work team!


In the process of chatting with Ryan at Paywhirl and figuring out a solution to my problem. I was frustrated by the live chat pop-ups but eventually got an email response. My rating was low at first due to the only way of communication but will raise because of the genuine help they are giving me a this time.
I think one reason is because of short trial period Shopify gives and most apps give. Shopify and all the apps can be a large learning curve for most and never enough time to really figure out if the systems will work for them especially if some modifications need to be made. I go form app to app trying to figure out what one does and doesn't do in detail. In the end I think PayWhirl will work out best but with some slight modification. Will update if fully functional.


Ryan Has Been Absolutely phenomenal In assisting me with app install and integrations with my Theme this app is very customizable Thanks For all your Support


Ryan and the folks over at paywhirl have been super helpful and very responsive when we needed assistance. Keep up the great work guys!


All around 5 stars! Hands down the best app I have worked with. The integration went smoothly, and the app works seamlessly on my site. PayWhirl has more features and customization options than the other apps I have tried while functioning like an efficient machine! As a business owner, user experience is very important to me and this app delivers on all levels. The bonus? Their tech team...Ryan and Larry are fantastic! I have the option to communicate with them via chat, email and/or live calls. They are responsive and extremely knowledgeable. They have gone above and beyond helping me troubleshoot some complex challenges, and they are great communicators. I'm not a techie nor do I have experience writing code, so their ability to communicate with me easily, simply, and in laymans terms is a huge benefit and time saver for me. I could not recommend an app higher than PayWhirl - absolutely brilliant!


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.


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.
