Each month the team at Innovation Visual dedicates time to staying on top of the latest features that HubSpot bring to market, so we can share that knowledge with our clients and help them utilise their HubSpot platform.
In July, we saw exciting updates in all the hubs including customised quote templates, the ability for buyers to select quantities on payment links as well as the ability to include ad performance metrics in custom reporting…plus much more!
We’ve put this blog together to dive into more detail about some of the newest and most exciting product updates announced this month.
Free CMS Website Themes
In line with the launch of the free version of the HubSpot CMS, HubSpot now offer a wide array of free website themes. This collection is full of expertly-crafted themes to suit small businesses, marketing, non-profit – whatever your need is, and these themes are a perfect basis for the design of your new website. Free CMS website themes are scalable. Allowing you to adapt and customise these templates to meet your business needs as you expand.
Buyer Selected Quantity on Payment Links
Your buyers can now select the quantity of each product they want to purchase when checking out. Maximise revenue and create a friction-free checkout process when you direct buyers to payment links with buyer-selected quantities. All you need to do is simply turn on the setting when configuring your line item for a payment link, and your buyers should be able to select quantities of up to 99, with automated charging and sales receipt processing. You’ll spend less time managing differing product quantities across various links and your buyers get a far better experience. Please note buyer-selected quantities on payment links are available for all customers on Starter and above.
Customised Quote Templates
Leverage customised quote templates in a variety of designs (e.g. Modern, Basic, Original) when creating quotes in HubSpot’s quote wizard. Customised quote templates combine the power of the CRM, CMS, and payments tools to enable you to create personalised quoting, contracting, and invoicing experiences for your customers.
These templates are flexible enough for a variety of team structures, from sales reps who seek time-saving, code-free templates, to developers who can customise themes and quote modules to match branding across landing pages, website, data, and more.
Please note customised quote templates are available for all customers at all tiers, alongside super admins with Sales Hub Pro or Enterprise. Developers require access to the design manager with CMS starter and above or Marketing Hub Pro/Enterprise to develop quote templates.

Stay productive on the go with this new feature! You can now attach photos to notes and activities and view the uploaded photos on the timeline on iOS. Available for all Sales Hub and CRM customers.
