Reasons to migrate to Recharge Subscription:

There are two key types of Recharge migration.

  1. Migrating from V1 to V2 of the Recharge platform
  2. Migrating from one system (Bold, Chargebee, etc) to Recharge

This post will focus on changing subscription platforms, for more around migrating to the new version of Recharge, read this article on Recharge V2.

Recharge is one of the largest subscription platforms with a wide range of integrations. Recharge’s features are designed to support subscription businesses, including automatic recurring billing, subscription management, and order tracking.

Recharge has a robust API that allows for custom integrations and development. It is often the ability to add more complexity to the subscription proposition which is the main reasons customers change from systems such as Bold or Chargebee. Another reason is that Recharge’s fraud detection is industry-leading, meaning that you can be confident in the security of your transactions.

Considerations when replatforming:

Moving your subscriptions to Recharge shouldn’t be difficult. There are three fundamental steps to the process:

1. Go live with Recharge and launch subscriptions

  • Add Recharge to your Shopify store, complete the setup process, and conduct a test subscription order to confirm the setup is complete. You’re on your way! Next, fill out our migration form to plan your next steps with our team.

2. Compile customer data and payment data

  • Your team will need to prepare your customer data as per the Recharge migration template. It’s crucial to compile accurate subscription and payment information. We’ll also review the data to make sure we have all the info necessary for the import.

3. Flip the switch!

  • Bulk import your data and walk through our post-migration checklist to ensure your data has been imported correctly. Our team will ensure that your customers are not double-billed.

The most complicated part of changing subscription application is the front-end work or any customised workflows using a subscription API.
