Join top brands like Bev, Muddy Bites, MatchaBar, Stryx, Doe Lashes, Sunsoil, Remedy Organics, Siete Foods, Gooey Snacks, Munk Pack, OneBlade, Barukas, & Red Bay Coffee, & many more!

We've raised $3.7M from investors like Y Combinator, MuteSix’s Daniel Rutberg and Moody Nashawaty, Shaan Puri, Italic CEO Jeremy Cai, Tilt co-founder and Magic Mind founder James Beshara, Julian Shapiro and Sahil Bloom, as well as founders and executives of companies such as Immi, Thingtesting, Taika, Smile.io, Literati, Linjer, Raycon, Cresicor, Carted, Orchard Analytics & Cohere.

Easily migrate from ReCharge

  • No payment disruption or card updates needed. Gradual rollout migrations available now.

  • How it works: test anywhere from 1 day to 1 week on new users, then migrate existing users. Bold migrations also available.

Increase conversions with 1-click checkout (Shop Pay)

  • Say goodbye to the ReCharge external checkout and say hello to native Shopify checkout.

  • Bonus: no ReCharge external url during checkout. No duplicate products/discounts. No needing to refund separately in ReCharge. Enable PayPal as a payment option.

Reduce customer tickets with passwordless login

  • Your customers hate logging in with a password. This creates angry tickets.

  • We solve this with passwordless login (4-digit code by SMS and email).

  • More wins: accounts are automatically created. Customers stay logged in instead of being logged out every few hours. Update address only once instead of needing to do so in both ReCharge and Shopify.

Get new features automatically with a hosted subscription portal

  • ReCharge's achilles heel is using Liquid. This means every single feature requires theme development (operationally impossible to pull off).

  • We've learned from this mistake and made our subscription portal hosted. Now you get new features automatically without needing theme development.

  • We also use modern tech like React/Next.js/GraphQL (respective 100x/10x/10x advancements in web development) which helps us build much faster than our competitors.

Increase CX efficiency with faster subscription editing

  • Don't waste time in your life every time you need to edit a subscription.

  • With Skio's instant loading, edits take only a few seconds.

  • Yes, no more having to edit each product in a subscription individually.

Get customers with referrals that don't suck

  • Your customers are completely desensitized to 1-time store credits.

  • Spike referrals by giving friends subscribing together a group discount on every order.

  • Group subscription discounts also increase retention. No one wants to cancel and make their friends pay more.

Burlap & Barrel

We've had a very bad experience with Skio, so please beware. First off, Skio is missing core functionality (exporting customers, limited variable data for notifications, limited ability to set rules around charge dates) - we requested that functionality during the 6 months that we were using Skio, but were told that not enough other customers were asking for it. The bigger issue was that Skio accidentally charged customers who had previously canceled their subscriptions. On top of that, Skio also continued to send renewal emails to our customers with broken links months after we offboarded from Skio and moved to Recharge. Skio is a new company and I hope they continue to improve their product, but we had to move off because of the missing functionality, continued mess-ups that eroded customer trust, and lack of accountability to get it right next time.

We've reached out to the merchant here to see if we can make this right. I would be annoyed as well in their shoes.

Long story short, we should've rain-checked working with Burlap & Barrel until we were certain we could handle their use case of doing quarterly billing and custom anchoring logic (along with other requests).

At the time we started working with them, I was doing everything on my own (we've now raised $3.7M and have an actual team). Given Burlap & Barrel's above use case is not common, it was a mistake for me when I was alone to commit to handling this. After having this experience, we now always make sure we can make a potential customer happy before committing to working together.

The core features mentioned as missing are actually all available in our product now (this review is based on outdated information).

The renewal email mess-up mentioned here were notifications that were set to enabled not properly checking if a merchant was off-boarded. This is now fixed.

Again, totally makes sense why they weren't happy here. It was my responsibility to say we weren't a good fit and I blew it. We're now much better at saying this :-)

Sunsoil

We're excited to grow our business w/ Skio. It's a new platform - so it has some rough edges - but it's already vastly better for our customers than Recharge (where we migrated from). And the team is shipping updates/upgrades to the platform every day, it seems like. Have had a great experience working with the team so far. They are super responsive and receptive to feedback.
