Subscription e-commerce is the digital offering of products or services being delivered on a regular basis, with recurring payments automatically taken from the customer. Subscriptions have become a lifestyle habit for many customers due to their convenience and ease. And this habit is growing.

A subscription overview

The value of the subscription box market in the UK is estimated to pass £1 billion by 2022 – up 72% vs. 2017. Almost 75% of organisations selling D2C are offering subscription services by 2023. Finally, the Global Subscription e-commerce market is expected to reach US$478 Bn by 2025, with a CAGR (Compound annual growth rate) of 68%. These are trends that cannot be ignored and have been accelerated hugely by the impact of Covid19.

Subscription ecommerce specialists

We have been working with subscription ecommerce companies since 2015. We have witnessed the shift in consumer behaviour, watched as the technical landscape has evolved and seen where the pitfalls are. As the popularity of cloud-based SaaS (software as a service) platforms such as Shopify have grown, and e-commerce has become increasingly accessible, so has the app and integrations ecosystem.

While these apps, plugins or integrations help with a lot of the heavy lifting to get a subscription proposition off the ground, there is always a degree of customisation that is required. D2C businesses succeed because they are niche and as a result, they will have different user experience requirements. A single software app (e.g. ReCharge or Bold) will simply not be able to cater for every single business model. This is why we created our own suite of software applications that help to provide that extra layer of detail merchants and customers need to deliver an experience that is stronger than its competitor.

Subscriptions are a great way to give customers easy and tailored access to their favourite products. When merchants decide they want subscriptions, it can be used as tools for increased flexibility in the customer's shopping experience by allowing them repeated purchases of high-frequency items such food & drink items.

What is a subscription service?
