Well friends, this week I made the decision to change my store set up a bit. It was kind of spur of the moment, after a hectic week in which i realised my current setup isn’t working for me. As much as I love Big Cartel, and feel so much loyalty to their store hosting – I’ve just reached a point where my business is too big for the functionality it offers.
What does that mean for you? Not much! hehe kidding, the new store is really fantastic! There are a lot of changes that i’m really excited about – for one thing you can now checkout with any credit card on my site, instead of being forced to checkout with paypal (i know having to use paypal was a real pain for a lot of people). There is also the ability to create a customer account/login after you finish your purchase – which will mean you can track your order status more easily, and i can offer special deals and sneakpeeks to past customers (isn’t that bit cool!). Not to mention simpler navigation, and simpler shipping. On my end, the admin is much better suited to my needs which is going to make my life a million trillion times easier.
The old store URL was www.shop.megannielsen.com and the new one is www.megannielsen.com – not a big change, just so so much easier to remember! So if you have the old address bookmarked anywhere, please keep that in mind (though there is a redirect in place so it won’t matter which you type in as you’ll end up in the right place!)
I really hope you all like the changes! I’m really excited about the new set up! Pop on over and let me know what you think!
