When a customer checks out on BigCommerce with a Recharge product, there are several steps that occur behind the scenes.
- When a customer clicks on add-to-cart, the front end detects whether a product is a Recharge subscription product using the Product Data script.
- The Recharge App Script replaces the existing BigCommerce checkout button with a redirect to ReCharge checkout with the item's information, plus any non-subscription product information when a subscription item is in the cart. For more information about this flow, see Recharge-Hosted Checkout.
Recharge redirects customers to one of two different checkout depending on what type of item is in the customer's cart.
The following table shows which checkout a customer is sent to depending on what type of item is in their cart.
|Recurring product||Recharge checkout|
|Recurring product AND non-Recharge product||Recharge checkout|
|Recharge product and Onetime Recharge product||Recharge checkout|
|Non-Recharge product||BigCommerce checkout|
|Onetime Recharge product||BigCommerce checkout|
|Onetime Recharge product and non-Recharge product||BigCommerce checkout|
