You can now easily find an order or a gallery using quick search features at the top of the Photographer Dashboard. Type a SimplePhoto Order ID into the "Order ID" field to pull up an online order. Type a gallery password into the "Gallery Password" field to quickly locate a gallery for editing.
Customers will now see an "Add to Cart" button when all package products have been populated. When this button is clicked, the package will immediately be added to the customer's cart. If package add-ons are present, the customer will then see the add-ons screen. If the customer then clicks on either the "Checkout" button or the cart link in the upper right hand corner or the "Proceed to Checkout" button in the center of the screen, they will be directed to shopping cart review screen.
These updates will help reduce confusion that currently occurs if a customer completes their package, clicks the "Proceed to Addons" button, then ignores the “Proceed to Checkout” button and clicks the "Checkout" button or the cart link in the upper right hand corner.
- When a customer adds a product to their cart, customer will see a temporary flash message (such as "Added: (1) 8x10 Color Portrait") to indicate that the product was added successfully. The "In Your Cart" section will no longer appear.
- Photographers who use the "Guestbook" feature and price lists with yearbook poses will notice that the guestbook email form now appears before the yearbook pose selection screen. Also, the message that appears above the guestbook email address form is now customizable in the "Email Marketing Settings" screen.

When downloading order data for a Prepay event, there is a new Export Type option labeled "Product Codes in one column, text entry fields in separate columns". This download format is helpful for studios who want text entry fields (commonly First Name, Last Name, Grade, etc) in their own columns and package selections in a single column.
There is now a "Standalone" checkbox for Lab Products. This setting is checked by default. If this setting is unchecked, customers will not be able to checkout unless other products are added to the cart. Uncheck the "Standalone" checkbox on products such as a background selection and retouching products to require another price list product to be purchased.
Now customers can zoom in to view a larger image when selecting an image as a yearbook pose or as part of a multi-pose package.
Tiered pricing can now be enabled for Composite Products. When adding or editing a composite product, click the "Switch to Tiered Pricing" link near the price field to setup tiered pricing.
Package products can now be added with a "No Pose" option. This feature can be helpful when products like specialty packages or frames are included as part of a multi-pose package. When adding a package product, choose the type "No Pose". 'No pose' products can be present in fixed and variable packages.
If the "Allow Other Galleries in Package Builder" setting is enabled in the Price List Settings screen, customers will have the ability to build multi-pose packages from multiple galleries inside SimplePhoto's Package Builder interface. Customers will see the "Add Images From Other Galleries" button inside Package Builder.
SimplePhoto photographers can now accept payments using Square! To authorize SimplePhoto to use your Square account for payment processing, click on the "How You Collect" link in your SimplePhoto Photographer Control Panel.
When Green Screen Background options are present in a SimplePhoto 2.0 price list, customers are able to simultaneously preview their green screen images on different background and choose the background choice that will be added to their shopping cart.
Unlike SimplePhoto's classic Green Screen Preview Module, labs (and phototographers with the ability to edit Lab Products) are able to upload background images themselves.
View instructions for setting up Green Screen Background options in your price list.
Photographers can now choose a Timezone in the Photographer Information setting screen. This timezone setting determines the timezone used when calculating gallery and discount expiration. Also the time shown on customer receipts is based on the photographer's timezone setting.
