App Store & Zapier 🐙

Very excited to announce that we now have a new shiny App Store!

The Subbly App Store makes it super easy to extend functionality and integrate with other tools. We will be adding more apps as we go and based by the influence of you, you can vote on what we add next.

To start with we have 3 apps, but one is a really big deal.

We've integrated with Zapier! 👏🎉

This means you can integrate your Subbly checkout and store with almost any app, Zapier connects with 1000s of apps.

So that means you can pass your customer data ... Mailchimp, Spreadsheets, even SMS and so much more.

New theme: Oceanic 🌊

As the first of many announcements we have rolled out a new theme called "Oceanic".

It's clean, it's summery, it's gorgeous. ☀️

Here's a preview:

We hope you enjoy it!

New metrics 📊

  • Churn metric. This is in beta. Read more on churn here.
  • Lifetime Value. This is also in beta. Read more on LTV here.

If anything doesn't look right or accurate, please let us know.

Happy entrepreneuring entrepreneur!


Some early goodies 🍾

Happy 2018! 🍾

We're working on some HUGE updates, but in the mean time I couldn't help but make some small UI improvements to the products section to make it easier and better for you to use.

  • Easily search through products and a generally cleaner UI
  • Quicker to add a new product from main nav
  • Creating a product returns back to the form to edit it immediately
  • WYSIWYG editor for product descriptions 👏


Some under the hood 🐛 bug fixes and optimisations 🙃.

What a start to the year.

Thanks for being with us, Stefan

P.s. We have a new logo and website!

🐛 Issue with gift dates when using re-billing

A bug was reported that when a customer was presented with the start dates of their gift to select from, and the product has re-billing and cut-off days configured, then the dates all had the same month.

This is now fixed, thank you for reporting this and for your patience! 🙏

Hope you're all having a great festive period!

Commitment periods and terms & conditions ⚡️

What's up?! ✌️

I'm back with more goodies. We just love to keep improving. It's kind of addictive.

We're not announcing this one yet, so if you see this, congratulations.

Commitment Periods

You can now get your customers to commit for a certain number of payments (months/weeks) whilst still billing them monthly or weekly instead of all upfront.

This is a pretty big deal for increasing signups and reducing churn. This is still in beta, so please provide feedback. Also not you must setup your terms and conditions as well, which brings me onto the next thing...

Terms & Conditions

You can now add a link to your terms and conditions for your customers to agree to when they go through the checkout process.

Till next time friend

Stefan (CEO)

P.s. this wasn't the huge update... just a bonus for now.

New "Coming Soon" theme ⏰

Alright alright alright... ✌️

We've added a nice simple "coming soon" theme for when you're not quite ready to go live but want to collect email addresses.

Note: you will need to configure the Mailchimp settings to collect your emails.

Other goodies while you're here 🍭

  • We fixed some bugs on other themes
  • We're rocking 🎸 our Facebook group... ok not an update, but still worth metnioning. #humblebrag.

Till the next update (which is huge)!

New status page 🚦

We added a new lovely status page so you can subscribe to important service updates like outages and issues and even see upcoming scheduled maintenance.

It's simple and it's hosted externally so if Subbly goes down you can always load this up for updates.

Check it out!

There's also a link on our home page footer, and in the admin support drop down.


Bug fixes 🐛

  • Issue with bi-monthly shipping not appearing correct in some cases on checkout ✅
  • Issue with SSL mode and the blog page going into a redirect loop ✅
