Shopify subscription service: setting up subscriptions
It’s not possible to set up recurring subscriptions automatically with Shopify as this option is not built into the platform and can be enabled only by downloading an app from the Shopify App Store. You can choose a subscription app depending on your business needs, but generally the majority of them helps you to manage recurring billing, payments, subscription discounts, customize different types of subscription boxes, and more.
