Upcoming site improvements and more

Hi guys,

Just wanted to provide you with a quick update on what we are working on behind the scenes, as we haven't sent any updates in a while now.  Roll Eyes

We started with "My Account" redesign a few months ago to address bugs and issues that members reported to us.
At the same time, we've been working on a second (and potentially a third) marketplace to allow people who sell vintage and supplies to sell on our platform as well (without flooding handmade listings).

Now, it looks like iCraft has to be completely redesigned too to introduce shared components and to enable things like a single login to all 3 sites, a shared profile and a billing system that can handle a more complicated setup.

We are still not sure how we'll release new changes to iCraft (probably in multiple phases). Just wanted to give you a heads-up that changes are coming in the next few months.

Please let us know if there are specific things you'd like to see fixed or improved on iCraft.

And if you are interested in selling Vintage or Supplies, please make sure you add your name to this thread Do you also sell Vintage or Supplies? or this one A vintage seller dying to sell on icraft. Thanks everyone!

Posted. Also interested to to know whether there would be separate fees for each site or the same fee for all sites?

Supplies site will probably have a different pricing structure, as it will deal with the volume of uploads and transactions.
$5 per month for unlimited postings won't be possible there Smiley
However, we'll streamline the whole experience, so you wouldn't have to enter the same info in 2 places and make multiple payments.
We'll also provide a single login to both sites and an easy way to toggle between 2 stores.

I am interested in selling fabric by the yard on the supplies site. It would be mostly silk and wool fabric.

Do you have an idea as to when the supplies site will be open?

A few more months....
We are rebuilding the whole platform, so it's a lot of work.

Hi guys,

Just wanted to address a couple of issues that people email us about regarding our policy changes.

We didn't make a final decision on the payment policy yet and we are still months away from releasing our new site.

We might even keep the subscription-based system and add a new commission-based system to offer people a choice.

If we decide to do a commission-based model only, we'll refund the money to people that paid up-front for the months that they can't use our subscription system anymore.

We are still brainstorming ideas here on forum, so if you have preferences for one or the other or ideas on how we can improve things on the new site, feel free to join the conversation. Thanks!

I'd rather see more features in listing items. For example, I create custom t-shirts made to order. Unfortunately, when (although it hasn't happened yet) a buyer clicks to buy there is no way for them to easily specify colour or size. So it needs to have that. Plus, as I now have 40+ listings and I'll have to go back into each one and manually add all the sizes/colours I offer because there is no bulk edit feature to easily do this. Same with shipping, I only added Canada and US options as it was't clear when adding a product. I thought that'd be ok as I presumed your were focused in USA (sorry). Seems your buyers are more in Europe so I have to add international shipping (I'm in Canada) but again, each product has to be manually changed.

I'm sure I'll get the hang of this site as I go, but initially it is rather frustrating and more time-consuming than need be.

Hi Bob,

Sorry, I feel your pain! Yes, all those features will be all addressed on the new site. We are definitely adding Bulk operations.
Currently, buyers can specify color and size in comments at the Checkout.

As for the buyers, I believe most of our buyers are from US, though we are a Canadian company.
I don't think we have a lot of European buyers, though it's a good idea to create International profile to cover people outside Canada & US.
