PayPal and order bumps finally got together (improvements for QuickPay and others, too)

Selling with order bumps used to be impossible in Simplero if you were collecting payment via PayPal. And if you were using QuickPay, the order bump would work but in some cases the wrong amount would show on the checkout button in QuickPay. (Like PayPal, paying via QuickPay involves your customer visiting a separate page controlled by the payment provider.)

As of earlier this week, order bumps work just fine with PayPal and will show the correct total in QuickPay. There's a little bonus for...

Introducing the simplified Simplero admin experience!

Today we're opening beta access to the new, redesigned Simplero admin experience.

After interviewing dozens of Simplero users—brand new, existing, and ex-users—we kept hearing one piece of consistent feedback: "The admin area is too confusing!"

And it rings true. Over the years we added more and more capabilities to Simplero, and the overall organization and navigation of the application never got the attention it needed to keep up.

With this redesign we're getting back to one of our core...

Simplero complies with EU payments regulation PSD2 with SCA support

If you're in the European Economic Area, you've probably been keeping an eye on the Revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) with its new requirement for online payments to implement Strong Customer Authentication (SCA), which often involves adding an additional step to the checkout process.

Banks and many payment gateways have been slow to implement compliance solutions, and many jurisdictions have chosen to delay enforcement of the SCA requirement, but the earliest date when compliance may...

New feature: Countdown automations without the fuss

Ever wanted to send a series of countdown emails leading up to some event, such as a webinar, the start of a course, or a subscription renewing or expiring?

The problem was, what if people join the automation late? In that case, they'd get all of the emails before that point all at once. That's obviously not very helpful.

So we fixed it!

Now go do something useful with it!

Have you ever had a great idea for a campaign or sale only to have your heart sink as you think about the work that needs to be done to set it up?
