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 (FREE) - No monthly fees and 3.00% of processing

  • 2) PRO - $49/month and 2.00% of processing

  • 3) PLUS - $149/month and 1.00% of processing.

  • 4) ULTIMATE - $249/month and 0.50% of processing.

  • Please 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.

way too difficult to set up. And way too many parties taking a chunk of money from each transaction.


The app is great and very robust! I would recommend using this tool over the Bold Recurring Memberships (I tried Bold's first and the experience was poor. Although Bold Apps does have GREAT customer service) The customer service at paywhirl is good but not great. I received help from Ryan and the solution did not work until 3-4 messages (over 4-5 day span) back and forth.They are helpful but it might take 2-3 days for a response.


The customer service provided by Larry was exceptional and thorough.


When we first installed PayWhirl at www.happiestbaby.com it seemed complicated and frustrating enough that I was sure it wouldn't work exactly as we wanted for our rental program. However, after talking with Ryan in support and explaining what we were trying to do at a high level, he not only answered all of my questions but also made suggestions on best practices and ways to use Paywhirl to improve the customer experience.

Fantastic support and a very powerful app = A+


Best recurring payment app to use in your store! Easy to install and customize. Expert help from support with any issues or requests. Would highly recommend.


I have very specific recurring payment needs for my business, and PayWhirl pretty much meets them all. During the setup and integration process, the customer support team at PayWhirl was amazing!

As we all know, no app may ever be perfect for our needs (especially if they're as specific as mine) - so finding an app that meets most of my requirements AND has great customer service is a win win.


A strong team and incredibly useful app. Initially I was having trouble with setup and installation but Larry and Ryan were truly amazing. We got the app up and running together in no time! Their support really made this a great experience and I'll be using it on future stores as well without a doubt!


PayWhirl is without doubt the best app on Shopify for Recurring Payments & subscriptions. My store is solely based on memberships, and due to the fact that PayWhirl supports one time charges and memberships, I use at to handle all my payments. The reports like MRR and Customer Retention is absolute cutting edge and makes a HUGE difference. The support is also top notch and Ryan is also very quick to respond (sometimes even within 30 seconds!). The app is also being improved all the time, and they happily take feedback and implement :-)


PayWhirl is absolutely awesome! They have walked me through every detail of setting up subscription payments using their app. The app dashboard offers a modern, clean, and intuitive user experience. The app itself is feature rich and offers tons of integrations to work with. Nothing lacking that I can tell. And the support is great!

Beautiful app folks. Thanks for all your help!


PayWhirl has been amazing every step of the way helping me with my business start-up! The support staff is awesome, and I know I don't need to go anywhere else because I'm in good hands! So a BIG thanks to you Ryan, and all of your support staff on an amazing job well done on your platform. Cheers!~
