Get started with reviewing these features on your store:
The Product Swap feature included in Bold Subscriptions V1 allows your customers to swap the products within their current subscriptions to other similar products. This gives you an easy way to provide different options for items, flavors, meals, scents, sizes, colors, etc. It also gives your customers the freedom to switch their products from order to order.
Your subscribers can only swap to items that are offered within the same subscription group with this feature enabled, You can limit the options for the products that your customers can swap to by only adding specific items to each subscription group.

Intervals & Buffer Days
Bold Subscriptions V1 allows you to offer a range of order frequency intervals for your customers to select from. This can be set between allowing fixed daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly intervals so you can complete all of your stores shipping on a specified day. The initial order will always process for your customers immediately.
Buffer days are used to ensure that your subscriber's first and second orders do not fall too closely together when you configure your billing dates. This prevents double billing, and ensures that your customers have an appropriate amount of time between their orders being shipped.

Minimal Fulfilled Order Requirements
Creating a Minimal Fulfilled Order requirement allows you to offer a unique subscription model to your customers. This feature allows you to enforce a specified amount of subscription purchases that must be processed before your customers can fully cancel their subscriptions.
This feature is recommended to apply to stores that offer a limited amount of subscription products, the ability to pay for products in instalments, and other necessary business models that may apply.
