Preview the subscription widget
You can preview the subscription widget before you make subscriptions live on your storefront. Take a look at Preview the subscription widget on your storefront for instructions and more information.
Publish or unpublish the subscription widget
To publish or unpublish the subscription widget, go to your merchant portal. Click Storefront and select Subscription widget.
Once you are on the subscription widget settings page, click Publish the subscription widget or Unpublish the subscription widget depending on your intended action.
If your widget is not appearing by default confirm that Auto Inject is not disabled in your widget settings. If this does not work for you it may be because you have an older version of the app. Contact the Recharge Support team for further assistance.
