I switched to PayWhirl for subscription billing. I'm so-so with tech stuff, but was able to follow the directions pretty easily (thank goodness!) and get my subscriptions moved from Paypal to Shopify (through the PayWhirl App). When I did get stuck, I was very happy with the customer service I received. They did a great job creating quick videos to help me get UN-stuck and moving again! Excited to have my subscriptions available in Shopify. Thanks PayWhirl!

The customer service is simply amazing! I recently switched over to PayWhirl from Bold and needed some help getting rid of the old Bold app. Not only did the PayWhirl team remove it, but they also made sure that I had everything properly integrated on the PayWhirl side - on New Years Eve! I'm blown away. And I love the look of the subscriptions! Highly recommend!

First: Customer Service is fast and responsive. A huge plus for me. Secondly: The new plan provides a much simpler way to set up subscriptions in a manner that is I believe enhances the user experience by making it simpler to make a decision.

I installed PayWhirl to kickoff my subscription program. Installation was simple and Ryan was super helpful in ensuring that the app was up and running. He was very responsive. Only drawback is that not all of the features I need are available yet, but they're releasing new features incrementally. I appreciate that the app is free until its fully launched. I'm a-okay using it in beta and will keep any eye out for their app updates. Definitely worth giving them a whirl!

THANK YOU to the paywhirl team. This is such an amazing app. I'm not a developer yet I was able to have a new shopify site with integrated subscription options for my product up and running in a week. That's testament to how good the paywhirl app is. Ryan and team are responsive and will always try to find a solution for any issues you might have, fortunately for us there are very few. Our customers love the flexibility they now have with subscriptions. Buy this now (unless you're one of our competitors).

The rep was very helpful and walked me through everything I need. He was also extremely patient with this boomer. Most importantly he told me I could use shopify payments with my PayWhirl subscription products and that information alone was worth all the time spent in putting this together. Love the product!

I love the way the app is programmed - it's clear and logical. I tried using Bold Subscriptions before PayWhirl but their system design is not easy to use and they couldn't handle my use case. PayWhirl can handle my use case with a lot of flexibility and options. Their support team is fast to respond and very tech savvy so they can easily help you resolve your issues quickly. Great app and great company. Highly recommended.

PayWhirl’s support team is awesome! They are helpful, courteous, & prompt. They even helped me on a Sunday and was able to have everything worked out by Monday afternoon. Shoutout to Ryan for being so GREAT!

Not at all FREE. I uninstalled immediately. Merchants, beware. They take 3% on top of Shopify's 2.6% + 30. Ridiculous to label this as FREE when it is SO not. Shameful.

Hey there, actually the app is COMPLETELY FREE until early 2021 and there are no transaction fees during our launch phase. After we release pricing options, there will be a free plan without any monthly fees for merchants. We have several links to our pricing page published and have been completely upfront about it. Lastly, we're priced very competitively amongst the other apps that offer subscription services on Shopify. We all use the same pricing models. If you decide to circle back. Please let us know, we're happy to assist.
