Inventory Management: Inventory pre-count, data collecting on miss ships, mid-month ordering, content calendar.
Existing Customers: Existing customer’s billing & shipping dates were moved to the 1st of the month and continued this cadence until the customer unsubscribed.
New Customers: New Customers subscribing between the 2nd-15th of the month would receive a box on the 15th — billed and shipped in the second month on the 1st — the initial activation of this subscription cadence proved customers were dissatisfied with the length time they were given to unscribe if the box didn’t meet their expectations.*
*billed and shipped in the second month on the 15th, then billed and shipped in the third month on the 1st.
New Customers Subscribing between 16th-end of month would receive their box on the 1st — billed and shipped in the second month on the 15th, then billed and shipped in the third month on the 1st.
