New Currency Switcher

We have changed all our product prices on themezee.com from USD to EUR. This change was made to simplify things on our end. We are located in Europe and therefore have to keep books in our currency. It was getting increasingly complicated with PayPal payments in USD, because every single transaction had to be converted and recorded in Euro.

ThemeZee is now also available in German

When ThemeZee was founded in 2010 the WordPress theme market was much smaller than today and only in its beginnings. It was a fast decision to create our website completely in English to attract a larger audience.

Since then 5 years have passed and WordPress has enlarged its market share rapidly. We think it was time for us to be finally present with a German website in our home country.

Redesign of Anderson

We usually try to avoid any significant changes in the design of our themes, because it is not ideal for the existing user base.

New Pricing structure

This weekend we made some big changes in our business model, product policy and update process. We really hope you are not totally overwhelmed by it so far. You may have noticed that our price model has also changed along with the new license system.

Since every purchase is now linked to a license key with a maximum number of installed websites, the pricing structure needed some refinement. We have added three different price options depending on the number of sites you are using. The price model is now more flexible and aligned with your needs.

Adding software licensing for automatic updates

One key feature of our new PRO Version plugins is support for automatic updates. Our WordPress themes are actively developed and we release updates for new features and bugfixes quite often.

Manual updates were always a big hassle for a lot of users and had the result that many websites run on outdated software. We also got many emails with reports for bugs which were already fixed in the latest version of the theme.

This update “problem” will be solved with our new products. The automatic updates will be provided by using a complete software licensing  system on our website, as many other WordPress companies already do. This post will describe all changes.

We have to admit that the update process of our PRO themes was not very perfect and we want to simplify it. So far you could manually check for available updates on our Changelog page. Furthermore we have announced critical updates on Twitter, Facebook or via Blog.

Short holiday break

We wanted to give you a quick note that ThemeZee will be on company holiday from 10 to 17 September. That means it will be a little bit quiet here and answering theme support mails will take longer than usual.

We will use the break to recover and recharge our batteries for the final quarter of 2014. We have several new themes, 2 plugins, a german website and an affiliate program in our pipeline and therefore some exciting months ahead of us.

Thanks for your understanding.
