Introducing "Product Shuffle" for Shopify

By Jay Myers on August 2, 2018

Until today, if you wanted to run a "Box of the Month" style of subscription on Shopify, where customers get a different product each month, it was difficult or near impossible.

It definitely wasn't automated: it didn't sync well with fulfillment centers as the SKUs didn't change, and inventory was never updated properly.

Today, all that changes! We're very excited to introduce Product Shuffle, a module to the new Enterprise plan of Bold Subscriptions that finally makes it possible, and easy!

Bold nominated for "Wellness and Workplace Culture" award

By Jay Myers on January 25, 2018

In the very early days at Bold, long before we had perks like catered lunches, beer on tap, a VR room, massage chairs, a gym, arcades, ping-pong, Foosball tables and basketball courts, we had a simple dream. A dream to build a company that would be an amazing place to work, that wouldn't feel like work, and that we would love coming to every day.

Five years with Shopify

By Jay Myers on April 20, 2017

A lot can happen in 60 months.

As I sit here and write this, I look around the office at 130 people I didn’t know just 60 months ago. It’s a lot to take in. Some of the people, since starting at Bold, have got their first apartment, got married, had kids, purchased houses, and so much more. I often wonder, through spouses and families, just how many lives are affected by this company. When I pull up to the office and see a parking lot full of cars, I wonder where all these people would be if Bold didn’t exist. Not to mention the near 50,000 stores that rely on our apps and services daily to run their business. It’s truly a humbling feeling.

Bold #InnovateOrDie AKA Hack Days

By Jay Myers on February 14, 2017

At Bold, #InnovateOrDie is the motto by which we live. If we aren’t continually innovating, we are dying as a company. Every now and then we need to remind ourselves of this. And that’s what #InnovateOrDie days are all about. They are 2 day software development or project challenges, where each member of Bold teams up, chooses a project to work on, and develops it to at least a working demo within 48 hours. It serves to remind us of what we can do with any idea we come up with, and how fast we can get it done, if we really sit down and put our minds to it.
