I’m going to have to keep this short – due to my one handed typing.. but i thought i should introduce you to our new shopping cart system. Lots of you are already familiar with Big Cartel – it’s a place where small businesses can sell their wares. I’ve used another cart system until recently but we’ve been having some issues with the site loading properly so – as of now – all dolls will be sold on BIg Cartel – http://bamboletta.bigcartel.com/ . We will link page to our site soon – but I’ll put it everywhere so you can’t miss it!
So at upload time the dolls will all load on the home page – like this (we are changing the look of the shop around – the layout will be the same but it may look a bit different soon)
S0 – you will click your doll of choice and come to this …click on ‘add to cart’ .. but the doll isn’t yours yet – remember there are LOTS of people on at the same time .. so there could be a couple of you putting the doll in your cart at the same time.
After you click ‘add to cart’ and this is VERY IMPORTANT… select your shipping country and HIT CHECKOUT and NOT update order’! At this point – if you are the quickest- the doll is yours BUT if someone is a millasecond faster the doll may jump out of your cart.. fingers crossed!!
Then you are taken to Paypal – don’t worry if you don’t have an account – if you look on the left side – it gives you a link to pay with just a credit card .. (and yes my total here and the cart total is different – i was playing around)
So – there you have it – this system is easier – no accounts to create – and (fingers crossed) dolls load at once… we gave it a test run last Friday and it went well.. as a lovely fan said – it’s one thing to be disappointed that you don’t get a doll – it’s another to be disappointed AND frustrated. Please still remember that there are LOTS of people after a few dolls – we can only make so many. I understand frustration but please keep this in mind.
Okay – I have to go – my hand is killing from the one handed typing !
Lots of love,
