No way! The beauty of Spitfire is that you will always have the latest version. New features and updates are available for you to use as soon as they are released.

Website Management FAQ
Do I need to have any programming skills to edit my website?
No you don't. If you can use a word processor, you can edit your website. Keep in mind that things like the overall design and functionality of your site may require help from a team of skilled Web Ninjas, like these guys. Give them a shout, they'll be happy to help you achieve whatever design and functionality you need.
I already have a great website. Can I transfer it to the Spitfire system?
Sure can! Simply contact us to set it up.
Yes, anything that would run on a regular website will run on Spitfire.
Do you take a cut of my online sales?
No we don't! Unlike some other e-commerce companies, we don't take a single cent of your sales. What you earn is yours to keep!
Is there a limit on the number of products I can have in my store?
No there isn't! Sell as many as you like!
How do I collect payments for the products sold on my site?
There are many ways you can collect payments. You can use any of the existing payment gateways already supported, such as: Authorize.net, Google Checkout, PayPal and many more. Or you can opt to use the "Process Offline" method that captures payment details from customers and you can then process these manually using your existing point-of-sale (POS) system. You can also enable customers to choose to pay by Check and COD. If you have a merchant gateway that is currently not supported, we can implement support for a one-time fee.
How does Spitfire calculate shipping and handling?
Spitfire allows you to create as many "Shipping Options" as you like, for the countries that you sell your products in. Your customer simply selects the appropriate options at check out time! You can also configure shipping options so only the relevant options appear that meet the weight and volume of the current products in the cart. Alternatively you can take advantage of the integrated shipping with FedEx, UPS, and DHL, where shipping charges are calculated on the fly based on the shipping destination and the weight/volume of your products.
I already have a shopping cart for my online store. Why should I switch?
Because everything is integrated and works together seamlessly and flawlessly. There is no need to do extra work to add customers from the store to your CRM and then add extra analytics code to each page of your store to track your customers. Spitfire's integrated email marketing will automatically calculate the ROI of your email marketing, customer loyalty, email coupon or discount-code campaigns without having to purchase extra software or add complex tracking codes by hand.
Email Marketing FAQ
Can I brand my Email Newsletters with my company logo and color scheme?
Absolutely! We allow you to completely customize every aspect of your email marketing campaigns.

How many people can subscribe to my email newsletter?
As many as you can sign up! We never limit the number of subscribers to your newsletter.
What if I want to send more than 10,000 newsletters every month?
No problem. Every Spitfire plan allows you to send 10,000 email newsletters per month at no cost. If you want to send out more you'll need to buy extra email newsletter packs.
Customer Database FAQ
How many customer contact and lead forms can I create?
You can create as many as you need! The system will even generate code that lets you capture leads and customer information from other websites hosted at a different company. This will allow you to gather leads from multiple sources and place them into a single customer database!
Is there a limit on the size of my customer database?
No there isn't. Your database can scale to tens of thousands of customers and beyond.
We already use a third party CRM. Can we still use Spitfire?

I need to capture special demographic information from my customers.
No problem! Our CRM gives you ultimate flexibility to collect and store any customer information you need. We can customize the CRM to meet your needs. Simply contact us and let us know what you need.
