🎉 Customer spotlights

We love what our customers are working on. These four are offering perks for fellow Mercury users:


Zeplin Founders
  • Product: Organize screens, publish locked designs, and scale design systems in a workspace that works with your entire team, including non-designers.
  • Origin: Zeplin's founders noticed many inefficiencies in the product development process. Designers and developers were going back and forth clarifying designs, and everything was too manual. Zeplin now helps over 4.5M users work better with their teams to ship beautiful products.
  • Perk: 1 free year of the team plan, including five paid seats


CoinTracker founders
  • Product: Track crypto investments and taxes easily and accurately.
  • Origin: CoinTracker’s mission is to increase the world’s financial freedom and prosperity. The founders took the first step towards solving this goal by making it easier to track their own crypto portfolios. From there, they launched CoinTracker and work with people around the world.
  • Perk: 10% off 2021 tax filing


Safara founders
  • Product: Members book the best hotels with no blackout dates and get 10% back on every booking.
  • Origin: Safara's founders are frequent travelers and were disappointed with the tools available in the travel tech market. They spotted the same problems with travel tech that they had seen during their years working with restaurants. They decided to build a better digital experience to save travelers time and money.
  • Perk: Free annual membership with 10% back on every booking; $100 travel credit when you sign up (expires 90 days after you sign up)


Simplified founders
  • Product: Design content, automate marketing workflows, and collaborate with your teammates.
  • Origin: Simplified’s founders get how frustrating marketing can be for businesses and creators — precious time and money is spent on apps for ideating, designing, writing, and collaborating, all to publish a single social post. So they built Simplified.
  • Perk: Up to 50% off yearly business plan
