How To Change Your Frequencies Site-Wide

To change your frequency settings for all Autoship products (site-wide), please see the examples outlined below. These code snippets can be added to your WooCommerce child theme's functions.php file using FTP or SFTP. Please note that all changes to your site should be tested in a staging environment before being applied to a live site. 

The default frequency options can be changed by implementing the filter 'autoship-default-frequency-options'.
