Curious to hear why you wouldn’t just go with Shopify and one of the recurring billing apps?
Barranger Ridler

I think both options are viable. I went with building my own because:

  1. I should be able to reuse my code in the future for spinning up similar stores easily.
  2. Not stuck with a service. As scalable as shopify is, at some point you end up wishing you could customize more.
  3. Shopify costs, as do most of the good recurring plugins.
  4. I wanted to see if I could.
  5. I’m can write code. 😊

What do you think? Have you built a Shopify/ecommerce store before?
