Set Up Your Recharge Integration

   Before you get started: Recharge offers multiple checkout platform options to best suit your business needs. This guide will show how to set up the Postscript x Recharge integration for both the Recharge Checkout on Shopify and Shopify Checkout checkout platform options. To identify your store's checkout platform, check here

Postscript integrates with Recharge, the leading subscription payment platform designed for merchants to set up and manage dynamic recurring billing across the web and mobile, allowing you to share information between the two solutions. 

Why You Should Set Up Recharge

  • Quickly create a subscription program and integrate it with your top tools and payment processors.
  • Create a better subscription experience for your customers that increases lifetime value and overall engagement.
  • Avoid customer churn by allowing subscribers to skip or delay deliveries, as well as swap out products.
  • Gain insight into revenue, customers, and subscriptions with robust analytics.

    • To disable it at any time, you can click the Recharge icon within Postscript's Apps section and select the toggle bar in the upper right corner of the Recharge page.


Eligible Recharge Automation Triggers

Now that your integration is all set up, you can begin creating Recharge automations in Postscript! If your checkout platform is Shopify Checkout, use the triggers listed below for your Recharge Automations.

Trigger Name


Checkout Started

Customer has started the checkout process

Order Created

Customer has created an order

Recharge: Charge Failed Method of payment failed
 Recharge: Customer Activated Customer was activated meaning you have added a subscription to a customer who didn't have an active subscription previously.
ReCharge: Customer Created Customer has made their first purchase
Recharge: Customer Deactivated (No Subscription Active) The last subscription a Recharge customer has expires meaning they no longer have any active subscriptions.
Recharge: Subscription Begins Customer has activated a subscription

   Note: If your checkout platform is Shopify Checkout, use the triggers Checkout Started and Order Created, not Recharge: Checkout Started or Recharge: Order Created. The latter triggers listed are for Recharge Checkout only.
