What to look out for when choosing an app with Shopify subscriptions

Choosing the right subscription app from the start is essential because switching solutions later on risks issues or even breaking your program.

Flexible Billing Cycles

Good subscription apps give merchants the ability to choose the billing cycle they want to set. This is a must, especially if you run multiple subscription offers or have products that you want delivered more often than others.

Subscription Analytics

If you're serious about growing your subscription offering, you need detailed analytics that good apps provide. With data, you can identify critical points and bottlenecks in marketing, inventory management, logistics, conversions, churns, etc. What’s more, you can also use the data behind your e-commerce operations to create future performance forecasts and plan your next campaigns around them.

Member-Only Discounts

Good membership & subscription management apps allow you to segment your audience for all sorts of upsells and cross-sells. Moreover, you can incentivize memberships by offering exclusive discounts to members or by including other perks like faster shipping.

Monthly Subscriptions

Monthly subscriptions are the industry standard for many businesses such as supplements, beauty, skincare, food & beverage, and much more. Good membership & subscription management apps allow you to seamlessly set up product subscriptions for your customers, monthly, bi-monthly, bi-weekly, or with any frequency you desire.

Customizable Subscription Boxes

Customizable subscription boxes are a great way to keep things fresh for your subscription program! While you can get extremely creative in crafting boxes and putting bundles together, you need to be aware, that combining bundles and subscription programs is somewhat of an engineering challenge. Thus, not every Shopify app supports this feature. If you’re planning on introducing custom bundles and subscription boxes, you need to be sure you select a Shopify app that can support you.

Our favorite subscription apps for Shopify

Here are the three subscription apps that we most commonly use and can recommend from first-hand experience.

Storyblok Image

Recharge is one of the first and most well-known Shopify subscription apps. In many ways, they are considered the gold standard.

They bring many functionalities, including comprehensive data and insights tracking, seamless integrations with leading technology partners, and the ability to iterate and test for revenue maximization.

However, their features come at a somewhat hefty price, starting from $99 per month.

Moreover, being one of the largest apps, means they are more risk-averse and slower when it comes to updates. Until recently, they had problems with mixing bundles and subscriptions.

Lastly, their customer support options are somewhat limited, as they don’t have a live chat.

Appstle is another well-established app in the Shopify app store. It’s the favorite option for many small businesses and solopreneurs, as it provides similar functionalities to Recharge, but you can start for free. 

Appstle is another well-established app in the Shopify app store. It’s the favorite option for many small businesses and solopreneurs, as it provides similar functionalities to Recharge, but you can start for free. 

We recommend using Appstle for small businesses and stores that are just starting out due to its affordability and excellent customer support.

Skio is the most premium solution out of the three. In our opinion, it offers the best UI/UX design to your customers and makes creating and managing subscriptions truly seamless.

Moreover, it’s the most powerful tool out of the three in terms of functionalities, data tracking, and customization options.

Furthermore, they boast a stellar support team, which is always available through live chat.

Membership Apps for Shopify:

When it comes to managing memberships, we recommend Appstle again, due to their advanced functionalities that come at a reasonable price tag.

Appstle offers unlimited membership tiers and allows you to make offers, discounts, content, products, and various perks exclusive to your members.

Again, their pricing and customer support are decisive factors in our experience.

Seamless Integration for Shopify Subscriptions - Step by Step

Setting up a subscription integration for your Shopify is easy and craftberry can do it for you in just 3 simple steps.

01. Choose a product offer to sell on Shopify with subscriptions

To get started with subscriptions, you need to select products that are eligible for Shopify’s subscription program.

This includes adhering to the restrictions of shipping carriers, payment processors, and the destination country.

You can create a subscription offer around bundles, gift boxes, supplements, or any products that get used up or consumed.

02. Offer an incentive to subscribers

The next step is to decide how exactly are you going to incentivize customers to go through with subscribing.

While one-time purchases can be spontaneous, subscriptions often require a sweetener.

A simple discount of around 10-15% is usually enough, or you can get more creative with perks and benefits that are exclusive to your subscribers.

03. Choose a third-party Shopify subscription app

Once you know what products you are offering and how you are offering them, the rest is as easy as integrating a Shopify subscription app of your choosing.

Our tech team takes care of all integrations, they set them up and ensure they work seamlessly as intended.

In case you need an out-of-the-box feature or customization that a third-party integration can’t handle, craftberry can custom code one for you.
