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.
Note: Before implementing Smartrr, it's important to review Shopify's subscription requirements to determine your eligibility for offering subscriptions on your storefront. You must also have inventory tracking enabled for a product to be subscription-eligible.
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.

1. Subscription Program

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.
Alternatively, you can create a new program from scratch. You'll be redirected to our Subscription Program tab to complete this step. Learn more about setting up a Subscription Program here.

2. Subscription Product

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.
Note: If you select to create a Demo Product, it won't appear in previews or in your storefront until you go to your Shopify admin and set the product sales channel availability to "Online Store".
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.

3. Smartrr Installation

The third step contains two parts:
  1. 1.
    Install snippets
  2. 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.
Warning: To prevent Smartrr from showing up on your site before you're ready to launch, we recommend navigating back to Shopify’s Themes to duplicate a copy of your current theme (Actions > Duplicate). Name it something that is easily recognizable, such as [Your Store] Smartrr Integration Copy [Date] so that when you modify the below code, you know you are updating the correct theme.
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.
Upon successful installation, you’ll be able to preview Smartrr on your site! Having trouble? Skip to Troubleshooting steps.

4. Polish & Optimize

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.


Why don't see Smartrr on my theme once I preview?

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.

Why did I receive an error after hitting Automated Install?

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.
