Bold Subscriptions V1 includes a lot of features that help you meet your business needs, including the ability to give your customers more freedom with their orders.
All of these settings are meant to increase the average subscription length while also reducing churn rates.
Please note that this article only relates to Version 1 of Bold Subscriptions. If you have Version 2 of Bold Subscriptions installed on your store, please visit Subscriptions V2 Overview.
If you are unsure of which version of Bold Subscriptions that you have currently installed, please visit Bold Subscriptions V1 & V2 Comparison.
Product Swap allows your customers to swap between the products in their current subscription(s) with products in the same subscription group.
This gives you an easy way to provide different options like 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 inside of the same subscription group that this feature is enabled within. You can limit your customer's selections by only adding specific products to each subscription group.
For more information on allowing your customers to swap their subscription products, please visit Product Swapping in Bold Subscriptions.
Intervals & Buffer Days
Bold Subscriptions V1 allows you to offer a wide range of order frequency intervals for your customers to choose from:
The initial order will always process immediately.
Buffer days are used to ensure that your subscriber's first and second orders do not fall too closely together. This prevents double billing and ensures that your customers have an appropriate amount of time between each of their shipments.
Please visit Intervals & Buffer days in Bold Subscriptions for more information.
Minimal Fulfilled Order Requirements
This feature allows you to enforce a specified amount of subscription purchases that must be processed before your customers can fully cancel, or edit, their subscriptions.
This feature is recommended for stores that offer a limited amount of subscription products, the ability to pay for products in instalments, or other necessary business models.
For more information on how this feature works, and our recommendations, please visit Minimum Fulfilled Order Feature in Bold Subscriptions.
Subscriptions Discounts (Standard & Dynamic)
Offering discounts to your customers is another feature that's built into Bold Subscriptions. These discounts can either be offered directly through your subscription, or be offered as a discount code.
