We're all about transparency and hope to answer any of your questions about how Semplice works below:
Our one-time payment option
You purchase Semplice as it is and it's yours forever. Our promise to you is that you will receive a stable product at the time of your purchase and we will do our best to provide free critical updates and bug fixes for 12 months after your purchase. This does not include free features or new product releases. You buy the product as it is.
Simply put, it's how software used to be. For example, back in the day you would purchase Photoshop 6 and you can use it as long as it's running. If you want to get the new Photoshop 7 version, you can decide if you want to pay again, or just stick with your Photoshop 6 version, which is still yours.
Our Semplice one-time payment option is just like that. And the good thing is, it's totally up to you. We will never force you to upgrade.
Our Semplice Club option
For those who want it, you now have the option to pay annually for Semplice to ensure you get updates and new features forever (plus, other nice perks). If we release a new feature, our Semplice Club members are the first to know about it. If we create a new product, the Semplice Club gets it automatically. If you believe in what we're doing at Semplice and want to support us as an independent company, this is a great way to do it.
Q: But I want free updates forever without subscribing!
A: Well, that's not exactly a question but that's on us. As much as we'd love to give you free updates forever, that would unfortunately put us out of business pretty quickly. But to make it easier for you, we give you all possible options with our one-time purchase or our Club membership pricing models. We thank you for all your support!
Q: Can I upgrade from Single to Studio to Club ?
A: Yes, you can always upgrade from Single to Studio or from Studio to Business or our Semplice Club membership. If you're confused about anything, just reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: Do you have special pricing if I already have Semplice and want to upgrade to a new version?
A: Absolutely! If that's the case, we always have a special deal for you. Just reach out to email@example.com and we will get you sorted.
