NOTE: The prepaid widget works by swapping between different products with assigned subscription plans. Using Shopify and your preferred subscription app, you’ll need to create separate products and assign separate subscription plans to those products.

    • I.e. PRODUCT NAME: Monthly Coffee Subscription
  • In your preferred subscription app, create a monthly subscription plan
