Bold Subscriptions V1 & V2 Comparison

Recently, Bold released a new version of the Subscriptions app. This article will outline the differences between the two versions. It's important to note that Bold Subscriptions V2 is not an upgrade from V1, it's a completely different app.

If you installed the Bold Subscriptions app before November 2nd, 2020, it is likely that you are still on our grandfathered Version 1 of the app. Any installations beyond this date will automatically provide you with the newest version of Bold Subscriptions.


If you already have Bold Subscriptions V1 there is no requirement to move to Subscriptions V2. We will continue to support V1. If you are interested in migrating, we are here to help. Please visit, Migrating to Bold Subscriptions V2.
