There are two price plans currently available through Bold Subscriptions, each possessing their own set of features. This includes our Essentials, and Advanced plans. Both of these plans currently include a monthly app fee which is billed through Shopify, and a 1% transaction fee on each order made via the "" checkout.

Bold Subscriptions V1 is PCI compliant, uses industry-leading encryption techniques, and processes all personal information securely. Please visit our Security and PCI Compliance Guideline article for more information on how we protect your store.

Please see below for more information on how Bold Subscriptions fees will appear on your store:


Shopify emails a bill every 30 days to the store owner. The Bold Subscriptions monthly app charges are included on these monthly invoices that are received, and can be viewed anytime within the Billing page in your Shopify admin.

Please see our simulated example of how the Bold Subscription fees will appear on your Shopify monthly billing:


The 1% transaction fee is only charged when a subscription is purchased on your store, as it is completed through the checkout. The Bold transaction fees will not be billed on orders that only include one-time purchase products, since they are able to be completed via the standard Shopify checkout.


If you own a store that receives a high volume of orders, you may be eligible for alternate pricing on an Enterprise store plan. To receive a quote, please open a support ticket.

Shopify transaction fees also do not apply to purchases made through the Subscriptions checkout.

The Subscriptions transaction fees will bill differently depending on which payment gateway is connected. Please see below for more information:


When using Stripe, the 1% transaction fees' that Bold Subscriptions V1 charges will be taken off before your revenue is deposited into your bank account. This means the revenue you receive every month is after all fees have been taken off.
