Post-Integration Pre-Launch Checklist

Has our team finished integrating the installed ReCharge app onto your site? If so, we recommend checking the following options before launching.


Access ReCharge Dashboard

The ReCharge Dashboard is your command center for managing subscription orders and customers. In Shopify go to Apps at the bottom left and click on the ReCharge app.


Create your First Subscription

If you have not created a real subscription for your products yet, it's the time to set that up.

For regular weekly, monthly or yearly subscriptions, you can check out our step-by-step guide found here on how to get started with subscriptions.
For pre-paid subscriptions, check out our guide on how to set up gift subscriptions.
