4 Shopify stores crushing it with subscription boxes & products

July 27, 2015

We love seeing our customers achieve success using our apps on their Shopify stores. As you may already know, we have over 20 apps on the Shopify App Store. Some help increase store revenue, some make tasks - like managing returns - easy and efficient. Other apps are more comprehensive and are critical to the operation of a store.

One example of these is our Recurring Orders app. If you're unfamiliar, Recurring Orders makes it easy for Shopify store owners to offer subscriptions (or recurring orders) on their store front - and it's been incredibly popular. We've helped countless numbers of stores implement Recurring Orders and build their business with a subscription model.

The best part of setting these store owners up with Recurring Orders is watching them succeed. We'd like to share some of these successes with you so you can see how powerful (and lucrative) the subscription model is.

Fresh Patch grows their subscription box business with Recurring Orders on Shopify



Fresh Patch

Andrew presented his business of selling boxes of grass for dog owners living in condos on Shark Tank with wide applause and acceptance with customers worldwide.

As said by Andrew, the choice to choose real grass for your dog is simple:

"There are many reasons to embrace the hydroponically grown, dirt-free grass in FRESH PATCH. Dogs instinctively want to go on real grass so training is easy. The living grass absorbs liquids and controls odors naturally. Most importantly, there is no cleaning or maintenance needed because the entire unit is fully disposable."

Plus with their continuous delivery service, you just replace a discarded unit with a new one when it arrives at your doorstep!

Fresh Patch came to us a few months ago, interesting in switching their website over to Shopify. The problem was they needed an app to allow subscriptions on Shopify.

After a few back-and-forth discussions, Recurring Orders turned out to be the solution for Fresh Patch and Andrew converted his business to Shopify and Bold.

Now a few months into the launch of his new Shopify store, the grass has never been greener for Fresh Patch.

Veestro pairs convenience and health using Recurring Orders on Shopify



Anyone who has tried to lose weight knows it isn't easy, but when you a pair healthy diet with exercise, you're on the right track.

Veestro helps with the healthy diet by offering three weight loss food plans, delivered straight to your door on a recurring basis.

At Veestro we offer an easy (and delicious) way to achieve your weight loss goals. It's not a diet. It's not about sacrificing taste or feeling hungry all the time. It's simply about eating healthy — or, as we like to say, eating smart! — by replacing some or all of your daily meals with healthy, organic, non-GMO, 100% plant-based Veestro meals.

Subscribing to Veestro gives you the convenience of not having to plan healthy meals for dinner because it's taken care of for you.

Veestro chose to use Recurring Orders as the backbone for their subscription service because it offered the flexibility their customers needed. If their customers are on vacation, they can easily skip future orders. If they want to change their plan, they can do so easily without having to re-enter their payment information.

Veestro is on the cutting edge of healthy dieting and we are excited to work with them!

V-Dog secures repeat customers with Recurring Orders on Shopify


unnamed (1)
Family owned & operated since 2005, V-Dog has been providing dogs across the United States with healthy and environmentally friendly dog food and treats.

With a strong mission to help minimize global depletion, V-Dog has built a loyal customer base for their food and treats, consisting of both dogs and humans.

Earlier this year they identified an opportunity to make reordering easier for their repeat customers by offering recurring orders for those dogs (and their owners) that can't get enough of the tasty products.

After looking around for an app to integrate into their existing store, V-Dog chose to go with Recurring Orders.

Now with a large (and growing) subscriber base, the sky is the limit for both V-Dog.

"Our customers have been asking for a subscription order option for...forever! Bold's Recurring Orders app has helped our customers arrange for their v-dog food to arrive at their doorstep monthly. A huge percentage of our customers are enjoying the convenience." -Lindsay @ V-Dog

Alen Corp was one of the first large Shopify stores to adopt Recurring Orders



Shortly after the launch of Recurring Orders on the Shopify App Store, Alen Corp was looking for a way to allow their customers to easily receive filters for their air purification system without the hassle of having to remember to order.

Since their adoption of Recurring Orders, Alen Corp has helped shape the app by providing us with feedback and feature requests since its inception.

Alen Corp is a perfect example of how Recurring Orders can supplement a one-time purchase product with a recurring replacement model.
