Matt here from the Guru Team! :)
Great quesiton! :-D When you say monthly sub boxes do you mean montly subscription apps? If so it always depends on ones business however, I often hear good things about the following apps:
At the same time if anyone else has any other suggestions please feel free to share! :-)
Hey Seana, Jay here from Bold. We develop this app here that Matt mentioned https://apps.shopify.com/recurring-orders
We'd love to have you give ours a whirl and help walk you through setting up a great subscription box setup. Don't hesitate to let me know if you need any help at all. I'm here to help :-)
We have a few customers which are doing monthly boxes with https://apps.shopify.com/supple-membership
Unlike the other apps above, this one is geared towards memberships though, e.g. one or two box options. If you have a dozen of different boxes to choose from, it won't be a good fit.
We've launched SO many new features to our Recurring Orders since this was originally posted, but one last week specifically geared towards subscription "Box" and or "meal-plan" style subscriptions. So I thought worth mentioning in here :-)
It's called Build-a-Box.
I think it's applicable to this post here. Essentially it allows you to create box style subscriptions, where customers select that they want in the first box and then each shipment can make adjustments before a set cut off date.
Here's all the info on it if interested: http://blog.boldcommerce.com/introducing-build-a-box-for-recurring-orders
If anyone has any questions, let me know!
It's rather old post, but it can be helpful for people looking for recurring payments with the following features:
