Creator Profile: Limit posts to subscribers


Your Creator Profile just keeps getting more powerful. You can now choose to limit email broadcasts you publish as newsletter posts to subscribers only.

For any readers who are already a subscriber, they'll be able to login to start reading.

  • Patreon Integration: We fixed an issue with the Patreon integration to make sure all subscriber information was passing over to ConvertKit no matter what the subscriber state is.
  • Stripe Integration: We quickly fixed a subscription reporting issue where cancelled subscriptions were showing up as active to make sure you always have a good understanding of how your product is performing.
  • Upsells receipts: You can now resend receipts for Upsell products, as well as for standard products and subscriptions.
