Monthly Subscription Boxes-What You Need To Know

What are monthly subscription boxes?

Monthly subscription boxes are when a company groups individual, but related, products together and ships them as a single bundle. There can be a lot of variation between different industries, though most work in similar ways.

The good news is there are some things they have in common.

Here are 3 ways in which most monthly subscription boxes are similar:

  1. Recurring deliveries – usually shipped on a monthly basis.
  2. Recurring payments – a recurring delivery must have a recurring payment.
  3. Themed boxes – there is usually a theme (such as a holiday) or an idea (such as sustainable goods) that connect the products. 

Examples of the most popular types of monthly subscription boxes.

  • Beauty
  • Food
  • Wine
  • Clothing
  • Pet Supplies
  • Toys
  • Coffee 
  • Book of the month


  • Overall in 2020, more than 2/3 of US consumers subscribed to subscription boxes.
  • Not surprisingly, more than 60% were in the food and beauty markets. 
  • Almost 25% of consumers chose boxes recommended by friends.
  • Lastly, in 2020, the subscription box market had more than $15 billion in sales.

Moreover, there is a new monthly subscription box in the nail polish strip market.monthly subscription boxes
