This guide explains how to integrate and recommend subscription products with Shop Quiz: Product Recommendation Quiz.


Shop Quiz: Product Recommendation Quiz currently only integrates with ReCharge Subscriptions for Shopify and WooCommerce Subscriptions for WooCommerce. Subscription products are not yet supported in the Product Recommendation Quiz for BigCommerce or Magento. They will not show up on the Results page. However, there’s a workaround explained in the Other subscriptions section of the article.

ReCharge Subscriptions

Here’s how to connect your ReCharge subscriptions to your Shop Quiz:

  1. Open the Shop Quiz App: Start by accessing your account on the app.

  2. Navigate and Connect: In your quiz dashboard, select the Connect tab. Scroll down to the ReCharge section and click on the connect button.

  3. Sync the store: Go to your dashboard > success checklist and run a catalog sync. The sync can take up to 30 - 60 minutes.

  4. Link Products to Quiz Choices: In the Link Products tab, associate your ReCharge subscription products with the corresponding choices.

  5. Publish Your Changes: After linking the products, don’t forget to hit the Publish button to update the preview/live quiz.

Integrating ReCharge with Shopify enhances your ability to recommend subscription products, but there are limitations and best practices to consider:

  • It is not possible to add all products to the cart with a single button; each subscription has to be chosen and added separately.
  • The subscription duration can only be chosen on the results page. It is not possible to recommend a specific subscription duration.
  • The customer needs to proceed to the cart first and cannot proceed to checkout directly with subscription products. You can change this in the checkout settings.
  • We only integrate with the new Shopify Checkout; the old Recharge Checkout is not supported. For instructions on how to migrate from the old ReCharge Checkout to the new Shopify Checkout, check this article.

WooCommerce Subscriptions

Products created with WooCommerce Subscriptions are automatically synced with the app when you install it. You can find them under Link Products tab in the Quiz Builder.


If you don’t see your WooCommerce subscription products on the list, try to launch a catalog sync of the app.

Other Subscriptions

For other subscription apps, there's a workaround that allows you to still guide your customers towards subscription options via the Shop Quiz: Product Reocommendation Quiz. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to implement this workaround effectively:

  1. Identify your subscription products that you wish to promote through the quiz.
  2. Create one-time payment options: Create equivalent one-time payment products for each of your subscription items. These will serve as placeholders in the quiz.
  3. Link one-time payment products to chocies: In the Link Products section, link each of these one-time payment products to the relevant quiz choices. This ensures that when a customer selects an option that would traditionally lead to a subscription product, they are instead matched with the corresponding one-time payment product.

Step 2: Adjust Checkout Settings

  1. Open Results Page settings: Navigate to the Results Page settings within your Shop Quiz Results Page.
  2. Change Checkout Settings: Change the Checkout Settings from “Add to cart” to “Link to product.” This adjustment ensures that instead of adding the product directly to their shopping cart, customers will be directed to the product page on your website.

As a result, the buyers will go directly to the product page and can subscribe there.

By following these steps and best practices, you can effectively integrate and recommend subscription products via Shop Quiz: Product Recommendation Quiz.
