Sky Pilot integrates with Bold Subscriptions to make offering digital subscriptions even easier. You can sell any type of digital file with Sky Pilot, such as:

Sky Pilot comes with a 14 day free trial, and offers a variety of monthly plans based on your needs. They also offer customizable plans, and can accommodate businesses of all sizes. For more information, please refer to their Shopify app store listing.




Sky Pilot uses customer tags to identify the Shopify Selling Plan your customer is subscribed to. In Bold Subscriptions, existing subscribers are tagged with active_subscriber. If your customer is subscribed to a monthly plan, they will receive their digital subscription delivery every month.

Once your customer purchases a digital subscription, they will have immediate access to the product. A link will appear in the checkout as soon as their order is completed. Your customer will also receive an email with an access link.

If available on your Shopify store plan, you can use Shopify Flow to add custom tags when specific products are purchased. For more information about this integration, please visit Shopify Flow & Subscriptions for Shopify Checkout Integration.
