The Early Adopter Program, previously known as the Recharge Beta Program, enables our merchants and partners to get early access to new features and provide feedback to help improve functionality.
While a feature is in at the Early Adopter stage, it is available at no additional cost. In the future, we may choose to begin charging for this feature. We will notify you before we do this, and it will not be applied to prior usage of the feature. Your use of this feature is still governed by our Terms of Service.
- Testing new features in an Early Adopter Program allows merchants to get early access to upcoming features and integrations. Merchants get access to a more feature-rich software platform, adding additional value and flexibility to their ecommerce business.
- The Early Adopter Program is designed as a mutually beneficial relationship with merchants. Recharge gathers feedback on merchant experiences with new features prior to being generally available and merchants gain access to future features today.
- The feedback merchants provide on quality and usability helps to identify and fix issues and gives you first access to a new feature. Your partnership helps make the Recharge platform even better.
- Recharge's goals with Early Adopter Programs are to tackle any bugs that come up and mitigate any issues as quickly as possible as we approach a wider feature release. Your feedback is crucial and helps smooth out any rough edges.
Note: Early Adopter features will likely contain known feature gaps, limitations, and occasional bugs. Recharge recommends that you initially test an Early Adopter feature in a development environment or on a small segment of customers whenever possible.
Status and eligibility
Early Adopter releases change on a per-feature basis and can be open to the public or closed to a private, invite-only audience. Some features are in an extended Early Adopter phase due to continually adding new functionality to the feature.
Recharge may run multiple Early Adopter Programs at one time. Each program will have its own sign-up form. Accepting the Terms of Service for one Early Adopter Program does not automatically make you eligible or enroll you in another. If you have any questions about a specific Early Adopter Program or eligibility, contact the Recharge support team.
Enrolling in an Early Adopter Program is the single best way to have a voice in future development on the Recharge platform. While at the Early Adopter stage, features are updated with new iterations up until the full release of the feature and beyond.
Recharge actively encourages all merchants participating in Early Adopter Programs to share their thoughts and suggestions for all usability and functionality concerns. Contact the Recharge support team to share feedback.
