At Recharge, we understand that providing an exceptional customer experience is crucial for the success of your online business. Today, we’re excited to announce Affinity, a new customer portal theme ready for you, straight out of the box. The Affinity customer portal theme is built to make subscription management easier for both you and your customers.

This new portal empowers merchants to make no-code customizations, while customers can enjoy a modern and user-friendly interface to effortlessly manage their subscriptions. By implementing this new feature, we aim to make the customer experience seamless and easier for end-users, which will ultimately increase their customer lifetime value for our merchants. 

Save time with no-code customizations

The Affinity customer portal allows you to create a seamless brand experience with powerful customization options. Easily update the look and feel to match any brand using Shopify’s Theme Editor. This means that you can customize the portal without having to write any code, saving you time and hassle.

Additionally, if you’re on the Pro or Custom plan, you’ll have access to powerful Extensions that broaden the functionality of the customer portal even further. With Extensions, you’ll have access to a world of possibilities:

  1. Slots will enable you to add custom content and functionality to different areas of the customer portal like rotating product highlights and educational content targeted to your customers.

  1. Events will enable you to take over specific interactions in the customer portal and add value with personalized flows. 

Reduce churn with intuitive order management

The Affinity customer portal’s intuitive design makes it easy for your customers to manage their subscriptions in a single-page view. The emphasis on the order rather than the subscription makes it easier and quicker for your customers to take bulk actions, such as rescheduling, skipping, or swapping. This means that your customers will be less likely to churn, which can help to increase your revenue in the long run.

Increase subscriber retention with a user-friendly interface

With its single-page design, the Affinity customer portal theme is mobile-optimized, which means that your customers can manage their subscriptions on the go, no matter where they are. The mobile-first design of the portal makes it easy for customers to view and manage their subscriptions from their mobile devices.

Our enhanced customer portal allows your customers to experience the portal in a currency and language they are most familiar with, making it easier for you to expand your reach globally. With multi-currency, your customers are able to checkout in their currency and continue to be charged in the same currency after their initial checkout. With advanced language options, the language displayed to your customers will be based on what’s available in your store and their standard language settings. 

By providing your customers with a user-friendly interface that is tailored to their needs, you can increase subscriber retention and build long-term relationships with your customers.

The portal’s customization options, mobile-optimization, intuitive order management, multi-currency and multi-language translations are just a few of the many benefits that will make subscription management easier for your customers.

As we move forward, we will continue to optimize the merchant experience, making things simpler and even more intuitive for you in configuring and updating Affinity settings within the merchant portal.
