Overview

Customers like to be surprised and delighted! With Appstle's automatic product swap functionality, you can easily swap/rotate/cycle products and product variations with every recurring order!

In this article, we have taken the example of weekly subscriptions in an ice cream shop, to explain how you can achieve an 'Automated Product Cycle', where the products (e.g. cornetto ice cream or sandwich icecream) or product variations (e.g. chocolate flavored cornetto or vannila flavored cornetto) are auto-rotated.

Product swap automation for product rotation
If you delivered vannila flavor to your customer this week, and want to deliver cholocate the next week, you can create an 'Automatic Product Swap'.

Step 1: Login to your merchant portal for Appstle Subscriptions, on Shopify

Step 2: Click on 'Advanced', in the navigation panel on the left side of the screen, and choose 'Product Swap Automation' from the drop down

Step 3: Click on 'Create Product Swap Automation' button

Step 4: Once you are within the Product Swap Automation section, select the products you want to swap automatically, under the 'Source Variants' and 'Destination Variants' boxes.

  • 'Source Products' refers to the product or products that will be automatically swapped or replaced

  • 'Destination Products' refers to the product or products that will be replacing the old product

Step 5: Once you have added the Source and Destination Products, you can choose if you want this product swap to be applied for just one delivery, or all the upcoming recurring orders/deliveries, using the toggle.

This way, you can change the Vannila Ice cream to Chocolate Ice cream in the upcoming weeks, and this flow will be entirely automatic.
