"More professional and quick than Bold customer service and I am excited to see how easy our lives become with our subscriptions due to this app!"
"We switched from Bold Recurring to Loop
and it is a 100000% better"
"The transition was a little bit difficult as we had a lot of weird pricing mixed in with our old Bold subscription but the Loop team did everything they could to make it seamless"
