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:


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.

Important: when you add your subscription product to Govalo, our app will create a copy of that product on Shopify, with "Gift" added to its title to differentiate it from the original product. You must 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.

Note: if you have integrated Govalo with Klaviyo, you may have your subscription gift emails sent via Klaviyo. Please refer to Klaviyo - Setting up your integration for more details.
