Additional details about the Recharge API can be viewed here.

Connect Recharge Legacy with MESA

When you're setting up your first workflow with Recharge (Legacy), you'll need to create a credential through MESA's Recharge App. Click on Connect with Recharge to complete the process.

Once redirected, scroll until you see a blue Install button and click on it. Then, you are all set! 🎉

If you see a "Not Found" message after you are redirected, it means that Recharge is not installed on the Shopify store that you currently have MESA installed on.


Recharge Retrieve Customer & Shopify Retrieve Customer Actions

If you want to update a Shopify customer after a Recharge trigger occurs, you will need to add a Recharge (Legacy) Retrieve Customer step before your Shopify Retrieve Customer step. You will not be able to update the Shopify customer without knowing the Customer ID from the Recharge (Legacy) Retrieve Customer step.

In the Recharge Retrieve Customer step, you will want to locate the variable that contains the Recharge Customer ID using the variables menu icon {+}.

In the Shopify Retrieve Customer step, you will want to locate the variable that contains the Shopify Customer ID.

Recharge Create (ALPHA) Onetime Product Action

If you want to add a onetime product (non-recurring products on a queued order) to a subscription order, you can utilize the Recharge (Legacy) Create Onetime Product action.
