    I welcome this announcement of “upgrade to Pro” Service. I am running two papers on your platform.
    May I know as layman, when I upgrade to Pro service, how can I put advertisement on my paper? Should I use some outside services like Google Ad for this purpose?

    It’d be great to have control over categories, be able to add your own, assign stories to specific categories.

    Thank you for the Pro version! Like it a lot (other than the category thing).

    Will we receive an email each day to let us know when it is time to review the content of the paper and send it out?

    I am finding it hard to get any type of assistance with the paper. I’ve upgraded but do not see a large advantage to this and my paper is not updating at all. The free version is upgrading more frequently. Also, when I want to delete some articles from the paper or block website – they are not going away.
    What is the most efficient way to get help if the community forum does not address the issue? Better response to your customers means better response to your business. I’m noticing some frustration out here and it may build if not addressed. thank you

      Hi Bryn,

      With each account you can create up to 10 papers. We don’t back papers up, but they do remain online for as long as you have the account and you have archives that you can access.

      Thanks for inquiring and let us know if we can help answer any other questions!
