How to create a subscription box with fixed items bundled together, using Subify?

Updated over a week ago

A subscription box is a simple subscription bundle: customers subscribe to receive a package regularly, typically monthly, with the same items included each time. Unlike a "Build a Box page", the items of a subscription box are chosen by the merchant and are fixed.

Benefits of Subscription Boxes

The fixed-item subscription box model offers many advantages. For your business, it simplifies inventory management because you know exactly what will be needed for each box. Customers, on the other hand, enjoy the convenience and consistency. They know what they're getting each month, so if they love the products, they'll look forward to each delivery.

Best Practices of Offering a Subscription Box

When setting up a fixed item subscription box, it's important to include high-quality items that are popular with customers. This isn't just about generating sales; it's about building a brand and a loyal customer base.

Many popular stores have found success with this model, including the Dollar Shave Club, which sends out the same set of razor blades each month, and BarkBox, which delivers a consistent selection of dog toys and treats. Each company has built a strong brand and loyal following through its subscription box services.

Offering a Subscription Box with Subify

You can use 3 methods to create a subscription box with Subify:

If tracking the inventory of each of the items in the box is important to you, you should either use the Quick Checkout Links(method1) or Bundles (method3) to create your subscription box.

1. Create a subscription box with quick checkout links:

If it's important to you to track the quantity of the products in your subscription box, you can use Quick Checkout Links to create your subscription box. Follow these steps:

  1. First, you need to add similar selling plans to the individual products in your subscription box.
    (If you don't want to sell individual products as a subscription, you can create a copy of the products in your subscription box and create the subscription plans for the copies, and remove these copy products from your collections so that they don't get recognized on your store)

  2. Then create a Quick Checkout Link and add all the products of your subscription box to the link.
    (if you want to have multiple frequencies for your subscription box, you need to add all the products with the same frequency to one Quick Checkout Link and create separate Links for each frequency.)

  3. Now you can create a landing for your subscription box on your store and add these links to your call-to-actions(buttons). Or share your subscription box's link in your upselling or promotional emails.
