2.0 is finally here, and it is free!
The journey to this release has been long, but I believe worthwhile. I am very happy to announce that Sunshine 2.0 is now available for free on the WordPress plugin repository! The SunshinePhotoCart.com website has also been refreshed.
A reminder of what this means
The first thing of note is that the basic version of Sunshine will be free, the Pro version will continue being a paid product. However, every feature available in the Pro version will be available as individually paid add-ons.
For basic Sunshine users
If you have a current basic Sunshine license, you now have a $39 (the current cost of Sunshine) credit in your account. You can use that credit towards any add-ons you want – go check them out now!
The latest version of Sunshine should be available to you via automatic updates in your WordPress administration area. You no longer need to pay the annual renewal fee for your license to continue getting updates. I will continue to offer 1-on-1 support for the length of your license.
I also recommend upgrading to the Pro version. If you were to purchase all the add-ons individually it would be $528. With Pro, get every single add-on and continued 1-on-1 support for $149 – saving you 72%! On top of that, until August 28th all add-ons are 30% off!
For Sunshine Pro users
The upgrade process is a little more involved for Pro users but not too difficult. If you run into any issues, please submit a support ticket.
Go to Sunshine > Settings and copy your license key
Go to Plugins > Installed Plugins and deactivate your current Sunshine Pro plugin(Don’t worry, you will not lose any data by doing so)
Go to Plugins > Add New. Search for “sunshine” and install the core Sunshine plugin.
Go to Sunshine > Settings > Licenses and enter your Sunshine Pro license key.
Go to Sunshine > Add-on Manager and activate the add-ons you would like to use.
Go to Sunshine > Settings > Licenses and confirm that a valid license key for every add-on is set. If not, the license keys are available in your Account area on our website (and please notify me if this does not automatically work for you).
Again, you will not lose any of your galleries, images, orders or other data in this process. If you do run into any issues, please submit a support ticket and I will investigate it immediately.
