The subscription box industry has experienced massive growth in recent years. In 2017, the number of subscribers in the United States increased to 11 million while venture funding in e-commerce subscription services has now surpassed $1.6 billion.
Scaling a subscription box service does, however, come with a range of challenges. Consumers expect a high level of personalization and product variability. Seasonal surges are difficult to predict in such a relatively new market. Compliance, ensuring brand consistency on all packaging, inventory management, and timely delivery all present further challenges.
