Think the subscription box wave is over? Think again. Forbes magazine recently noted that despite the craze being a decade old, it’s here for the long haul. In fact, as of Q4 2018, there were more than 3,500 active subscription box services…and that was a 40 percent uptick from 2017! The industry is currently valued at more than $2.6 billion. Yes, BILLION. With a “B.”
From Dollar Shave Club to HelloFresh…if you have an eCommerce business, you have a subscription box model.
