RechargeSMS: New Landing Page Opt-in Widget

RechargeSMS now has the ability to generate a landing page for customer opt-in! Creating a landing page easily allows for existing subscribers to opt-in to transactional messages outside of the checkout flow and via email & SMS.   

What’s new?

  • A landing page opt-in card has been added to the RechargeSMS dashboard.
  • Once clicked, the landing page card will prompt merchants to customize their branding information (Shop Name / Logo / Primary Color). 
  • The card also provides an interactive UI for merchants to preview and customize.

How does it work?


  • Once branding information has been finalized, the customizations produce a dynamic code snippet (HTML/CSS/JS) generated after the merchant clicks “Save”.
  • Merchants are then directed to create a new page in the Shopify store settings where the custom script is pasted after selecting the 'Show HTML' button.
  • After saving, the widget is then displayed for subscribers to interact with.


  • On the widget page, subscriber’s can enter the email associated with their subscription as well as a phone number.
  • Completing the form will prompt:

    • A text message with a validation code to ensure the number belongs to them.
    • An email (the one entered) an authorization URL to authenticate the changes.

Update to ‘Charges - processed’ export

All merchants using Recharge can now proactively capture unexpected charges within a selected date range when using the ‘charges - processed’ export, available within the Recharge merchant portal.

With this update, once the merchant enters the appropriate date range for the ‘charges - processed’ export, Recharge will automatically
  • remove charges that failed to process within the selected period. This includes charges that got rescheduled to a future date due to reasons such as card declines or order errors
  • include any charges that got processed within the selected time range despite being originally scheduled for a different date
Merchants can still identify the original queued date of the charge within the exported file under the column charge.charge-date.

To learn more about exports, visit support documentation here.

Edit discounts in Recharge

Previously, you only had the option to disable, deactivate, or delete existing discount codes and create a new one if you needed to modify the terms of a discount.

Recharge now supports the ability to edit existing discounts on your Recharge store! That means you can increase the number of uses and extend the expiration date on all discounts. 

This will provide more flexibility and make it easier for you to manage your Recharge discounts.

Improved Customer Portal Performance with Product Search

With these improvements you'll notice faster loading times on your product search page. Now, only a subset of products are loaded, as needed. Previously, all products were loaded at once increasing the amount of time it took for pages to load in the customer portal.

If you are using one of the following templates as your current theme, no action is needed: 
  • Standard themes: Novum & Prima
  • Theme Engine custom themes: Base_v3.0.0, Novum_v3.0.0, and legacy_novum 

If you are using legacy_base you must create a new theme for your customer portal using the Base or Novum theme template. Once you finish customizing your theme and assign it as your current theme you will begin seeing these performance improvements.

Recharge is now a non-embedded app on Shopify

Recharge now opens in a standalone tab, rather than within Shopify’s embedded view. No action is needed on your part and does not affect any functionality for your store -you'll see this update the next time you log in to your portal. 

You’ll experience these immediate benefits: 

  • More room to work: You’ll be able to use the full page to manage your subscriptions. 
  • Improved performance: The Recharge app experience will feel faster and smoother in a full-page tab than it does within the Shopify app. 
  • Broader browser and device support: You can now use Recharge on Safari, in Chrome incognito mode, tablets and other mobile devices!
