How do I install Smartrr on a Shopify 2.0 theme? (Automatic Install)
Implementing Smartrr on storefronts with one of Shopify’s 2.0 free themes: Dawn, Craft, Crave, and Sense.
If your store is using one of Shopify’s 2.0 free themes, and have not made any customizations your your theme’s source code, you’re eligible for our simple one-click automated install of Smartrr via our in-app Setup page.
Within the Smartrr app navigate to Setup under RESOURCES in the left-hand menu.
Subscription Programs are the heart of the Smartrr app. If you're just getting started with subscriptions, we can create a Demo Program for you. This will automatically create a "Subscribe & Save 10%" program for your shop.
Now that your Subscription Program is created, your next step is to assign a product/s to this program.
Similarly to step 1, Smartrr can create a Demo Product for you. This will create a "Smartrr Snack Cookie (Demo)" in your Shopify admin. You can use this demo product for previewing purposes, and will be able to delete it at a later date directly within your Shopify admin.
If you're opt to add our demo product, be sure to set Online Store as an available sales channel in your Shopify admin.
If you want to start with one of the existing products in your shop, select from the modal that appears. You can select one or multiple products.
The third step contains two parts:
- 1.Install snippets
- 2.Render Smartrr
For part 1, select the Shopify theme you'd like Smartrr snippets to be in stalled on. Smartrr Snippets are files that are injected into your code base and will not modify any existing liquid files. These are required in order to render Smartrr on your storefront. There are five files that will be added under the Snippets section in your theme's liquid code.
Click Next Part.
For part 2, Smartrr will need to modify your theme’s liquid files for the product page, customer account page, and order status page. Select Automated Install only if you are on an unmodified Shopify 2.0 theme. For all other themes, including custom themes, select guided install for manual instructions.
If you select Automated Install, we will automatically render on the same theme from part 1 where you installed Smartrr snippets.
Now that Smartrr is up and running, you can use this page as a checklist to keep track of configurations options to optimize your subscription business.
- Customize the look and feel of your customer account portal
Whether you've created a demo Subscription Program or made a new program from scratch, you may need to double check and make sure your program details have been successfully "saved". To do this, go to Subscription Programs > Manage Program. Check and see if there is a Discard / Save banner at the top, and click the green Save button.
If you've customized your theme at all, or are not using one of the Smartrr 2.0 themes we've optimized for easy-click install (Dawn, Craft, Crave, or Sense), there's a chance our automated process will not work as intended. We recommend trying our guided install instructions.
