Selling Subscriptions on the Post Purchase page: limitations

When selling subscriptions on the post purchase page, there are certain restrictions and limitations imposed by Shopify. Subscriptions can only be offered after the initial order does not include any subscription products. If the initial order consists of subscription products, only one-time items can be sold after the purchase.


You can't create a post-purchase subscription that does the following:

Modifies a subscription on an order with an existing subscription
Adds a subscription to an order with an existing subscription
Converts a one-time purchase into a subscription order

If however the original order did not contain any subscription products, it is possible to sell a subscription product. This is a great way to drive recurring revenue.

More on post purchase limitations can be found in Shopify's Documentation.
