Recharge - Setting up your Subscription Gift
Note: this feature is available for stores in the Premium and Enterprise plans.
Note: Govalo isn't compatible with Recharge's Bundles feature at the moment.
Recharge empowers the subscriptions offering in your store through recurring payments. Through the integration between Govalo and Recharge, you can take that to the next level by making it easy to gift subscriptions! Here's how you can do it:
In the Govalo app, go to Integrations and click Connect Recharge:
You'll be prompted to integrate Govalo and Recharge. Click Install to proceed with the integration:
Note: if you have integrated Govalo with Klaviyo or Drip, make sure you have your email template set up for subscription gifts before you start selling them. You can find more details in the corresponding article for each app:
Back to Govalo, in the Recharge integration dedicated page, click Add subscription product:
Note: if you receive the message below, login to Recharge to add a subscription.
Select the subscription you would like to also offer as a gift:
Note: do not add gift card products to the integration with Recharge. Gift cards are managed separately and meant to be a one-off item. The goal of this integration is to allow you to add an option to your subscription products so customers can also purchase them as a gift.
Note: it's not possible to add products with too many variants (usually over 80 variants), to the integration between Govalo and Recharge.
Customize your subscription gift product. You have the ability to edit the product name, image, and number of times the subscription will be sent (cycles). Once you're ready for the subscription gift product to go live, click Enable.
Note: although the product is already in your store, a second product with "gift" will automatically be created once the subscription gift product is added. This differentiates the original product from the subscription gift product.
Important: DO NOT edit the variant titles in the gift copy created by Govalo. Our app relies on the variant titles to correctly create the gifts, therefore any changes may cause the gift codes to be created incorrectly.
Congratulations, you have finished setting up your integration with Recharge!
As subscription gifts are issued, you'll be able to see them listed at the bottom of the Recharge dashboard within the Govalo app. You can also navigate into each subscription gift issued in order to view their details and resend the email if necessary.
