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Manual updates were always a big hassle for a lot of users and had the result that many websites run on outdated software.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.

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.

Reorganizing Theme Support

We have developed our support systems step-by-step since we have released our first premium themes and paid theme club. We added a documentation section, video tutorials and support forum and have written a lot of tutorials as we went along. The result was that our support center has become a little bit messy over time.

Retirement of older themes

Today I am announcing the retirement of all our older, static-width themes which were mostly created back in 2011. Since then a lot of things have changed in web and WordPress theme development. Websites are visited more and more on mobile devices rather than desktop computers, which has led to Responsive Webdesign and mobile-ready themes.

Happy holidays

Another year has nearly passed and it was a quite successful one for ThemeZee. After improving the support process at the beginning of the year I spent really much time on learning everything about responsive webdesign. The result were the release of eight new ThemeZee WordPress themes with responsive layout in 2013. Finally ThemeZee.com also got a mobile ready design.
