New Feature: Themed Site

Until now, your public site for your Simplero account has been a simple catalog of your products. If you wanted a site with more content on it, you'd have to have a separate site hosted on for example WordPress.

Today, we're changing that by introducing a major update to your public site, and one that we're very, very excited about. Instead of just being a catalog, it is now a full featured website including a blog and pages that you can control the content of, sporting a brand new design to...

Today we've added a simple forecast feature to your purchases, where we tally up all the upcoming installments and subscription renewals and give you an indication, of what the next 12 months look like.
