Client Services Updates

Interbike is Around the Corner

Are you going to be in Reno this year? We are and we would love to meet with you! Look for our big blue owl flag at Booth #2505 on September 18-20th. Click here to set an appointment to meet with us! We have a special offer for you to migrate your website to a new mobile-friendly template if you meet with us in person. 

Review Your PayPal Settings

PayPal has recently updated their security protocols and there are a few steps you need to take on your SmartEtailing website in order to continue accepting payments through PayPal. If you have an existing PayPal Business account, or once you have created one, you need to connect it to SmartEtailing's PayPal MarketPlace. Please follow these steps or contact support if you need assistance. 

Product & Development Updates

Website Templates Retiring Soon

December 1st is the day that all SmartEtailing websites must be migrated to one of our mobile-friendly website templates. With so many people viewing your website from their phone, it's more important than ever to be on a template that looks great no matter what device your customers use. Many of the updates we've made to the SmartEtailing platform are only available on a responsive template. Don't get left behind! We offer supported migration options, starting at just $500. Any template that is not mobile friendly will be unavailable at the end of this year. Want more information? Click here to learn more & get started.
