I'm starting to get kind of frustrated with their lack of discount options and only payment gateway being Paypal.

Do you think they will ever do anything about it?

    I think they will. They're starting to improve things, so hopefully we'll start seeing some more improvements very soon.

    Why don't you just email Dan or their support to make suggestions.

    This has been brought up 100's of times in their help forum.

    I wouldn't hold my breath for anything to change.

    Even though I like bigcartel they have been so slow to make any changes. It took a couple years to get e-commerce tracking.

    Yeah I am tempted to switch to another e-commerce solution. It's something I need and everyone has been asking about for years.

    It seems they have updated it where you can individually price a product in a certain product page. I'm liking that option, it's a step in the right direction.

    Hey dudes... (first Mintees comment, whoo!)

    We definitely hear ya on discounts, and it's something we're planning on improving soon.

    The reason discount codes have taken so long is because of how we integrate with PayPal. Since we send over each item in the cart separately, instead of the cart as a whole, it prevents us from doing things like flat-rate discounts (as opposed to percentage). And because many of our stores rely on PayPal's shipping settings, it prevents us from doing things like free-shipping discounts.

    So the first step in this process, which we're working on now, is to change how we're interacting with PayPal. This will give us more control over shipping, discounts, and open up the ability to even use other payment gateways (another big feature we want to get to) along with a number of other useful features we're planning. Of course, we'll also keep our existing PayPal functionality working for those that use it.

    As I hope you've noticed, we've been hitting the gas on BC lately. I know some of you have been waiting on certain features like this for a long time, but I assure you that big things are coming, and we're working just as fast as our tiny hands can work.

    Anyway, nice new place you guys have here. :)

    Matt
