Step 1 - Integrate with Recharge via API

Use the Recharge API to pull subscription plan information into your preferred data store, typically your ecommerce platform, or a Product Information (PIM) tool.

See the Recharge API Reference for additional details.

Step 2 - Push data to the relevant pages

Ensure that your subscription data is pushed to the necessary pages to enable customers to purchase subscription products. This typically includes:

  • Product page: Display subscription options and details
  • Customer portal: Present subscription opportunities and management options
  • Cart page: Show subscription pricing and options.
  • Checkout page: Finalize subscription details and pricing

Step 3 - Review the common front-end functionality

Review the Understanding common front-end functionality guide to evaluate your data against the common front-end functionalities. Confirm that:

  • The subscription options are presented
  • Users can select and modify their subscription preferences
  • Changes to subscription options, pricing, and frequency are reflected in real time based on customers' selections
