Tracking Subscription Conversions with Recharge

If you installed Recharge in your Shopify prior to November 2nd, 2021, you’ll need to set up affiliate tracking within Recharge as well in order to track subscription conversions. This is because the older version of Recharge uses its own checkout process and needs to have our customized conversion script added separately.  GRIN will only record a conversion for the initial purchase. The recurring orders within the subscription will not be counted towards your creator’s affiliate link stats or commission earnings.


If your Shopify Recharge was setup after November 2nd, 2021 and you accepted the new Shopify Recharge setup, you should disregard this page and instead visit Shopify's page on Checkout Integration Overview.
