Simple Subscriptions

Use Simple Subscriptions to:

  1. Offer prepaid and subscribe and save product subscription options
  2. Create members-only content and groups with automatic subscriber tagging
  3. Require minimum payment cycles and optionally auto-expire subscriptions
  4. Customize all subscription form text on your product pages

Subscribe and save

Subscription plans follow custom, recurring payment 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.

Prepaid subscriptions

Let customers pay up-front for several deliveries and automatically renew the prepaid purchase. For example, bill customers once a month for 4 weekly deliveries.

Content memberships

Active subscribers can have custom tags applied. Use these tags to filter customers, create private members-only areas in your store and more. When subscriptions lapse tags are automatically removed.

Gift subscriptions

Create a prepaid plan that automatically cancels after just 1 billing cycle (the first purchase). For example, customers make a one-time purchase for 4 weekly deliveries over the next month. The subscription is not automatically renewed.

Secure and streamlined checkout experience

Customers sign-up for product subscriptions directly from your store using the standard Shopify checkout process and experience a native, fast and secure checkout experience. Customer payment information never leaves your payment provider so you don't have to worry about credit card details being lost or stolen.

Payment providers

Simple Subscriptions currently works with Shopify Payments, PayPal Express, Authorize.net, Stripe and more.

Simple & fast

No code editing is required to set up the app if you are using one of Shopify's free themes. Contact our support channel for help setting up custom themes. We typically respond within a day.

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 customers to complete their purchases so your storefront stays lightning fast.

There are a lot of subscription apps for Shopify, but Simple Subscriptions seems to live up to its name by being the most straightforward solution I could find. There are no third-party service integrations or per-transaction fees. I had the challenge of associating some fairly complex subscription options to over 16,000 products, but Russel was prompt, helpful and able to address nearly every concern. I'll be sure to use Simple Subscriptions again.

Freshfield

Try this app now. Alyssa and Russell get it. They have built an app that does everything you need and spare you the bloat you get with the other guys (looking at you, Recharge). Storefront 2.0? Done. Shopify Markets? No prob. This app is SIMPLE (duh) but uses the most recent best practices as suggested by Shopify. The Cakewalk team is extremely easy to work with and were instrumental is getting us set up with exactly what we need.

We had looked for a long time for a service to help us with our custom subscriptions. Cakewalk's Simple Subscriptions has gone above and beyond what we were expecting. They are always responsive, clear, and helpful. They even helped us to set up some custom configurations for our data! I couldn't recommend them more highly.
