PayWhirl Recurring Payments makes it easy to create, manage and sell subscriptions or other types of recurring payment plans on Shopify. We help eliminate the custom development typically required to build all of the web pages that allow your customers to store payment methods, purchase subscriptions, and manage their own accounts online.
With PayWhirl + Shopify, your customers will be able to login and manage their own information, see their billing history and make changes to their account. Customers will be able to add or remove payment plans, update their stored cards on file, addresses and profile information associated with their subscriptions... All without having to contact anyone at your business!
We have a US based support staff ready to help answer your PayWhirl questions around the clock. You can also schedule a live chat meeting or phone call anytime if you need help or have questions.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We offer a few different pricing tiers on the new version of PayWhirl
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).
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. If you're not comfortable installing the software yourself, we're happy to help!
