Solved

Hi,

We are launching a direct to consumer subscription series (collectibles), so a shout out to folks who faced a similar store dev challenge & can recommend best setup and/or a question to Shopify how much any of this is on your road map. Any help much appreciated: 

  • Ours will be a subs series that follows a predetermined fixed plan – each shipment is a unique SKU
  • more like a curated box than a typical recurring coffee/shampoo subscription that subscription apps are built to handle
  • customers don’t get to choose the contents & can’t mod the plan other than pause/cancel
  • starting off at a quarterly frequency and accelerate towards a shipment per month down the line 
  • a couple free add ons across the lifetime on top of the regular shipments (accessories)
  • Analytics – churn/LTV/gross margin/customer gross margin/product etc would be awesome

Aware, this isn’t something that's typically handled right out of the box by ReCharge or Bold: we’re aware some development needed. Any advice appreciated on what’s the best setup/app to get started ?

Thanks,

Maciek

HI Maciek, we work with quite a few DTC Subscription brands like Nuoo Box, Ecoriginals, Colonna Coffee, AKT London and they all use Recharge + Polar for Analytics. Feels like your set-up of fixed plan, curated box with a quarterly frequency could easily get managed via Recharge. The Analytics part is often missing though and you could use Polar Analytics for this: https://www.polaranalytics.co/integrations/recharge-analytics-for-shopify-brands

Feel free to drop me an email if you have any questions!
