New in 2019

Artist Notification Mode BRAND NEW!

The Artist Notification Mode helps you manage your IndieMe shop in multiple ways. If you are planning to be away on vacation or are unable to fill new orders for a period of time, use this feature to alert buyers of your current status. Retailers will be able to browse, favorite, and add your items to their cart and place orders if they choose, however they will be notified of your status on your IndieMe shop. There is no time limit on how long your shop notification can be active.

To set up your notification login and navigate to Artist>Manage My Store>Store Settings.

Update to our Checkout Process BRAND NEW!

We recently updated the terminology, color and style on the checkout process making it easier to checkout with clear directions. In addition we added YOUR Terms & Shipping information, your Checkout Policy and your NEW Return Policy so buyers know exactly what you offer.

We like to focus on the experience for all members!

Discount added to Invoice BRAND NEW!

Did you apply a discount to an IndieMe order? Now that discount will be displayed on any printed order. You asked for it, we are happy to add it!

Artist Store Product View BRAND NEW!

We recently updated the view of your IndieMe store. Thank you so much for all the wonderful feedback! We took this new look and applied it to the Featured Ads on the buyer home page. Yep no more labels on top of your beautiful images. Now you will find the labels below the product picture and more spacing between products. Check out the subtle hover effect when you mouse over them!

We then took this update and applied the look to:
  • Our Weekly Update Newsletter (minus the hover effect)
  • Search Results
  • Premiere Ads

The way your product views is important to us, we aimed for consistency!

Return Policy BRAND NEW!

At IndieMe we know you want to handle any potential refunds as you choose. After all it's your business! So we added a new feature called Return Policy. Fill out the area and your personal return policy will be visible on your store near your Terms & Shipping information.

To add your Return Policy navigate to Artist>Manage My Store>Payment Setup.
