We've received a lot of feedback from our agency partners that they're finding it very difficult to commit their team's time to projects that are unpaid - particularly during the COVID crisis. This is a challenge when it comes to scoping out more technical projects on tools that teams are not familiar with meaning teams are factoring in the time to learn the tool(s) as a contingency in a scope of work.
To support our developer partners as they take their first steps with ReCharge's developer tools we are pleased to announce that we will be offering a subsidy payment to help cover the costs of a technical team member familiarising themselves.
The subsidy is a single time payment of $2,000 paid once an eligible project's development begins.
To be eligible for the subsidy the project must involve one or more of the following ReCharge tools / alternate billing methods:
- Theme Engine: rechargepayments.com/features-theme-engine
- API / Webhooks: https://rechargepayments.com/developers
- Enhanced Analytics: https://rechargepayments.com/features-enhanced-analytics
- Membership Model: https://support.rechargepayments.com/hc/en-us/articles/360040758674-Creating-membership-based-subscriptions
The partner team must not have completed a build using the tool before
How do I apply for the subsidy for one of my builds?
Please contact your respective Partner Manager directly to discuss the project and its eligibility.
When will the subsidy be paid?
The subsidy will be paid out within 4 weeks of the development project commencing.
How many times can I claim the subsidy?
The subsidy is only valid for a single project per development Partner.
How long is the subsidy offer valid for?
The subsidy will be available for projects started prior to June 30th 2020, there is a cap of 25 teams that we will be subsidising so once this figure has been reached the subsidy requests will be closed.
Does a merchant have to be on ReCharge Pro?
There is no requirement for a merchant to be using ReCharge Pro as the subsidy can be used for training on projects using our API which is open to all merchants. For projects involving Theme Engine or Enhanced Analytics then there will be a requirement for Pro since these are gated features.
How will the subsidy be paid?
The payment will be made via PayPal.
