Simple Store New Features
With 2021 nearing an end, it’s a great time to review all the new features added to Simple Stores this past year. In case you missed any of our announcements or you just want to see all the features recapped in one place, keep reading to dive into our many innovative new features.
AI Store Design
Artificial Intelligence is changing the game! And since BrightStores prides ourselves on keeping up to date with the latest tech trends, we are now offering AI so that you can experience incredibly helpful store building and design options for yourself. Beginning with your company or organization’s logo, AI will automatically update store colors to match. This includes the button background and hover color, navigation bar background, and footer background. Artificial Intelligence will also create categories based on product population. The store builder can let the system know how specific or generic you would like these product categories to be.
Edit images directly in Bright Orders! You can now customize images without the use of an editing software.You will have the ability to crop, rotate, resize, filter, fine-tune, and adjust any image, including:
• Storefront Headers
• Product Images
• Any Image in the store!
Have you already purchased a custom domain name and still want to use Bright Orders? Well, we have good news – you can do both! You can now add on a custom store domain using our platforms! Go ahead and try it now in both Simple Stores and Redemption Sites.
We’ve added even more checkout options in addition to the ones you already know and use frequently. PayPal is the newest payment option that we made available to users in 2021. Available payment options depend on PayPal configuration but can include:
• PayPal Balance
• Credit or Debit Card
• Bank Account
• Pay Later
• And more!
Order Confirmation Emails
After the shopper has checked out, you can put their mind at ease by letting them know you have received their order and are working hard to get it fulfilled. Confirmation emails allow an Admin to customize the order email which the shopper receives when an order is placed in a store. This can include:
• Input custom text on the order confirmation page.
• Input custom text on the order confirmation email.
• Order Confirmation emails reflect the shopper’s time zone.
•Cancel Approved Orders
•Canceled orders will trigger a refund to the credit card/PayPal
account used for the order, restock inventory, and void Avalara
tax requests. The order status will change to “cancelled.”
Shipping Confirmation Emails
Once your shopper has placed their order and received their order confirmation email, they will be eagerly awaiting their product to come in the mail! Let them know when they can expect their order by updating the shopper on order shipping details by sending shipping confirmation directly from your Simple Store admin to their inbox.
Bright Orders API v2 offers more robust integration capabilities in our Simple Stores such as:
• Ability to update full order details (items, contacts, adjustments, comments, and more).
• Ability to add, edit, view, and delete items, categories, clients, artwork, vendors, and more.

• API Key Permissions
• API Usage Report and Overage Warnings
