Recurring Payments - Status Update This post is outdated
I know that shopify doesn't support recurring payments yet via shopify. I also have seen in the forums that it is a feature that many have requested and shopify is potentally working towards moving it up the backlog to getting it done sooner than later. Maybe? Maybe not based on how long it has been discussed in the forums.
I also know that there are solutions like chargify which is a bit extensive and expensive for just the limited feature set of recurring payments. Also it outsources your products and info to another application and checkout process..
Also - chargify does not support my payment gateway at this time but Shopify does. Yes my payment gateway supports recurring payments and has a ruby api to do it.
So as I plan on how to obtain this feature w/n my store, I would like to know if this is something that would arrive by end of year? Or if there is any other insight you may be able to provide?
It seems as if there is some API support for recurring payments:
Of course making a custom app is an option but so is native shopify interfaces which is what I want.
I am considering migrating to competing solutions like volusion for this simple feature which makes me sad.. :(
If you read this post and agree. Please just post something w/n this thread to help it gain traction.
I have also opened a ticket with support and will post back what they say.
