About Simple Subscriptions

With Simple Subscriptions selling product subscriptions and increasing recurring order revenue is as easy as:

  1. Install the app and agree to our free trial
  2. Complete our guided setup (no code editing)
  3. Create custom subscription plans for your products

Thanks to the app's deep Shopify integration, all of this can be done without ever leaving the Shopify Admin portal. Subscription plans can follow custom, recurring schedules like weekly, bi-weekly or monthly and each plan can have a fixed-percent discount. For example, offer customers 7% off each weekly purchase or 5% off each monthly purchase.

Streamlined checkout experience

Customers sign-up for product subscriptions directly from your store using the standard Shopify checkout process. The app works out-of-the-box with Shopify Payments to give customers a native, fast and secure checkout experience.


Offer customers fixed-percentage discounts based on the frequency of customers' recurring orders.


Customer payment information never leaves Shopify so you don't have to worry about credit card details being lost or stolen. Customers must use a secure page hosted by Shopify to update their payment details.

Simple & fast

No code editing is required to setup the app if you are using one of Shopify's free themes and have not made extensive changes. And, if you aren't satisfied, uninstalling the app will not break your store!

The app's required storefront JavaScript loads quickly anywhere in the world via Amazon's content delivery network (CDN). No new API calls are required for customer's to complete their purchases so your storefront stays lightning fast.


Simple Subscriptions currently supports custom weekly and monthly schedules (e.g., every 1 week, every 2 weeks, monthly, etc.). Recurring payments are charged at the time of order creation. This means a 1-month plan is initially charged for 1 month at the time of checkout on Shopify and then billed each month going forward.

Customers automatically receive email reminders to review and update their payment details when payments fail.

Requires Shopify Payments

The support from Russell (and the team at Cakewalk) was outstanding! We have a custom theme on our Shopify store and they were SO helpful getting us up and running, he actually did it for me when I expressed my "lack" of know-how in this area! We're new to subscriptions so his help was so appreciated! Thank you for your assistance and a great product!!

Russell and his team at Cakewalk made adding a subscription plan a piece of cake! Not only did they customize the app to fit our needs. exactly, they installed and launched it in a day! I could not have asked for more from Russell, Cakewalk Dev and their Simple Subscriptions app!
