With the power and beauty of iOS, we were able to add a few great new features as well, unique to the app:

In-person orders

In-person order

Ready to take an in-person cash or card order? Awesome, here’s how:

  1. Begin by tapping the shopping cart icon in the navigation bar at the bottom.
  2. Pinch to view your products as a list or with big, beautiful images.
  3. Tap on any product to add it to the new order.
  4. When finished, tap the Checkout button at the bottom and adjust any quantities.
  5. Tap Add discount to add a quick percentage-off if you’d like, and tap Next at the bottom.
  6. Tap Credit or Cash, complete the payment info, and finally tap Complete order.

That’s it! After the order is placed, you’ll have the option to send a receipt to the customer via e-mail, and you’ll be able to view it inside your Big Cartel admin.

Peek and Pop

Peek and Pop

For those of you with an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, we’ve added Peek and Pop to orders! Press lightly on an order to take a quick look at its details—including buyer location, item quantities, and any notes sent your way.

Slide up when peeking to quickly email the buyer, print a shipping label, or mark the order as shipped. If you want to open the order, press a little deeper to Pop into it. With Peek and Pop, browsing and managing orders has never been easier.

Quick Actions

Quick Actions

Another workflow improvement for those of you with an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus: Quick Actions from the home screen using 3D Touch. Press on the Big Cartel icon to jump right into orders, products, checkout, or to quickly search through orders.
