Smile.io powers reward programs for 15,000 merchants across the globe by rewarding your customers for completing profitable actions. Reward points are earned with simple actions such as making a purchase, creating a customer account, referring a friend, social sharing, and more.
- Recharge Checkout on Shopify
- Shopify Checkout Integration
- Shopify Checkout Integration merchants must contact Recharge support to have this integration enabled.
Before you start
- Recharge's Smile.io integration for the Shopify Checkout Integration allows merchants to apply the coupon on both checkout or recurring charges through the merchant portal or customer portal. This discount code is limited to a single use.
- Recharge's Smile.io integration for the Recharge Checkout on Shopify only allows merchants to reward customers for their recurring purchases by offering discounts on their next month's payment. Note that the discount code will apply to a customer's next upcoming charge for the associated subscription. It is not possible to stack discount codes and only one code can be applied at a time.
- For security reasons, Smile's rewards widget will work on all pages except the Recharge Checkout page.
