Please let us use our own images so that our shops don’t look ridiculous.
Trust me it will bring in a lot more sales.

Bring marketplace discounts to partner shops. It is unfair that the marketplace can get quantity discounts but not partners!

This new update is cool and everything but I think something that you guys are missing is having the option to only sell a certain shirt in certain color! This can be done with CSS but there should be an option to make it easier for everybody. There are certain designs to only look good in certain colors people who don’t have any knowledge about color theory would buy a T-shirt and return it because it doesn’t look good. I know this is not the place to talk about this because you want to talk about the homepage but let’s actually talk about the real things that real shop owners need. It will be such a great honor if you take this to your IT department and they can figure out something.

I am very happy with my order, it was exactly what I wanted! 🙂 the quality was very good and I received it very fast. Definitely going to order more again.
although mine was a little spendy cause it was pretty custom, it would be nice if prices could be a little lower because I would like to order many more of them, but the cost is just too high, ( i want to print on several areas on the item). Besides that, very happy and highly recommend.
The design part of the website was pretty easy to use, even just on my smartphone.
I also agree with the comment about more fonts available to use, that would be awesome.

Have a look at what I did with my site (still under construction) to get around the issue of not being able to display the category description under each category in the shop itself.

It may give you some creative ideas. Hope it helps!

the homepage would be nice if it was like the actual http://www.spreadshirt.com homepage, which has categories, like, christmas, vegan, unicorn, santa. This would totally help to increase shop engagement and sales I guess.

Hi SpreadShirt Team,

I have an idea.

It would awesome to have a category menu to categorize products and designs differently for e.g Holidays collection menu and T-Shirts only menu.

Would be nice to be able to rearrange what order products come up on the shop ie. sort by price, sort by style. Rather than just men’s women’s and accessories. On mobile the price doesn’t show on the main page of a design so if a customer clicks on the first shirt they see and its one of the most expensive shirt styles it may scare them away from making a purchase

How about a widget where we can add our twitter feed or facebook feed – it would save a lot of time for our marketing!

Nice idea. That would be awesome if when we press the last button for creating a product, this product would automatically appear on our twitter,facebook,pinterest and instagram

also, when you buy stuff on amazon, there is an option to share what you just bought via facebook or twitter, i like that. big (maybe even animated) “share” buttons should be under each item

Be nice to be able to group designs together then on the Homepage/Landing page have the groups listed to narrow down the customers selection rather than having to scroll through all designs or setting up multiple shops

I would like to have a more specific control over what is displayed on the start page. Right now, I can only add shirts…and even then it doesn’t seem like I have full control over the shirts that are displayed unless I limit the # of shirts/design displayed (I would like this in general across all pages). I like the ideas about customer reviews and a product merry go round. Maybe also a way to have your social media posts relative to your shirt designs or maybe to have a small blog or news feed added to keep your customers updated.
Are these the type of ideas your seeking?

to gain more customers trust, you can add 3 youtube videos of how the t shirt is being made and packaged, maybe some reviews of your company or customers reviews of t shirts and stuff

as an addition to my comment: that’d be nice to add such things as animated sparkles to my item on the landing page, maybe some Chrismas animations (small deers,santas,snowflakes falling right on the landing page) Animated Wallpapers

A control panel page that is linked to everything I am connected to in one place.
anything I want to access “PREVIEW” Link ‘Bam’ right there, in one place.
crazy site navigation you here… lol

I am digging the site so far. but this would be helpful, keep getting lost trying to find certain pages.

The front page says buy in bulk save up to 70%, you can add these words right under checkout button. All of that information should be visible to a buyer. Let’s see, customer added an item to a cart, and right after that a pop up window shows up that offers to order more same items, and also shows the amount of cash this customer would save, customer would click “add more” or “refuse this offer”.
I think this is worth doing, sales might go up.

I see. I thought you are making a new shopping web site for every designer. Landing pages all look the same to me. As usual there must be a timer going (hurry up, sale ends on such a day or in 24 hours/minutes (even if it’s not true)), there should be just 1 item (t-shirt for example) displayed on this landing page, the photo/image of the item should be big enough (almost half of the page). I’d like to control what item is on my landing page (sometime I see you offer free shipping starting on some day and end on the other particular day) and I’d like these kinds of promotions apper on my landing page automatically)

I agree, I only ordered one item as a test to see if I liked it, and would like to order several designs and multiples of each, but the total cost was just too high. A better discount on say, 5, 10, or 20 of one design would be an incentive for people to order more, and a display with the savings would be helpful.
