Manage Subscriptions Page

About

Bold Subscriptions customers using the Advanced plan or higher can create custom manage subscription experiences for their shoppers. Contact Bold Commerce for more information and to gain access.

This project includes boilerplate functions and advanced logic to manage subscriptions. To start creating a custom experience, we recommend forking this project as a base.

Getting Started

Prerequisites

To run this application you will need the following software installed:

  • Node version 10
  • Yarn version 1.12.3 or newer

Install

  1. Clone the repository

  2. Install the node dependencies for the project.

    $ yarn install

Use

Run a local webpack dev server to develop on.

$ yarn start

Develop and test

Javascript bundle

Your local Javascript bundle can be loaded at https://localhost:8080/app.bundle.js unless the port was already taken.

Proxy page URL

https://<domain>/tools/checkout/api/manage/subscription/app?preview_custom_app=1

Previewing the local bundle

To start previewing your custom MSP, open Bold Subscriptions through your eCommerce platform and navigate to Settings > Manage Subscriptions. In the "Custom Manage Subscriptions Page" section, fill in the local bundle URL (which is usually https://localhost:8080/app.bundle.js) and press Save.

After saving, click "Preview Custom Page". You'll be taken to a proxy page with your custom app loaded and ready to test. Make sure to sign in as a customer with an active subscription before visiting this page.

Production use

To build the production bundle into the dist folder of the project, run the following:

$ yarn build

Upload this file to your server or Shopify account, and paste the direct link to the bundle into the App URL field on the Settings -> Manage Subscriptions Page.

When you're ready to release this page to the world, press Activate Custom Manage Subscriptions Page to send customers to your newly-created experience.

Troubleshooting

Proxy page content is blank

This is a fairly common issue when developing locally, and usually happens when the local bundle has a secure protocol (https) attached to it without a valid, associated SSL certificate. To work on a Shopify proxy page, you need to load a secure asset. You can resolve/hack around this in two ways:

  1. Navigate to https://localhost:8080/app.bundle.js. The web browser should warn that your connection isn't private because it's claiming to be secure without actually being secure. You can often choose to ignore this error (Chrome provides an "Advanced" button in the lower left corner of the error which allows you to proceed). This should load the Javascript bundle (until the browser forgets about your decision to proceed).

  2. In Chrome, disable the "Your connection is not private" error when loading local resources. This is generally safe, since the resources you're loading belong to your machine. You can navigate to chrome://flags/#allow-insecure-localhost and enable the highlighted feature flag ("Allow invalid certificates for resources loaded from localhost"). The privacy error will no longer come up and you won't need to get around it ever again.

Your custom page should load correctly following one of these steps.
