I would love it if we could get to our dashboard from the app so that we are able to get to our discounts page and create or delete discounts codes for our customer as well as do other things right from the app! Also to the developers can we get some templates with notification/welcome bar if at all possible. I love how easy it is to access my inventory but that notification bar is something I think would put big cartel over the top! I would’ve gave you all a 5 big after my last update I can’t access my app all I see is black! I have an iPhone which is updated to ios11 if that helps

Thanks for your feedback! We're continuing to make improvements to the app so we appreciate the input. :) In terms of the app loading issue, here's a quick fix for now - in your iPhone’s Settings, go to General > Storage & iCloud usage > Manage Storage. Within that section you’ll see the Big Cartel app - select it and delete it. Once it’s deleted, try reinstalling the app from the App Store to see if that clears it up.

Two areas to improve

Small Business Mama

I enjoy using Big Cartel. It is reasonably priced and looks slick, BUT there are two big things I think the site needs. I am always back peddling with emails to costumers to compensate for these missing features, which is a waste of my time.

1. customers should be able to to add comments at check out. I understand by adding this feature it may reduce the amount of postings packages you sell, but it’s a pretty basic feature to offer. Given I sell baby crowns with a number on the front, it would be virtually impossible to do separate options for all numbers. Comments could help with this.

2. shipping notifications should be upgraded to show carrier and have a place to add tracking number for ongoing status. This is standard for pretty much all online shops these days. People don’t want to be left in the dark with their orders.

Let me know if I am missing these features. Thank you.

Hi Vanessa, thanks for your input! There is a notes field at checkout that customers can enter special details into when they place their order, and you'll be able to see the notes they've added in the order details in your admin. We'll keep your thoughts about shipping notifications in mind as well!

Hasn't opened in weeks.


The app started out fine for me in August when I first downloaded it. However, in the past 2-3 weeks, I go to click on the app and it's blank. And never opens anything. It's got a blank white top banner and the rest of the page is black. I have no idea how I'm supposed to work on my website from my phone app if it's going to keep doing this. I don't always have access to big cartel from my laptop because I'm on the go. Is there a solution for this? Is anybody else having this issue?

Sorry for the hassle with that! Here's a fix to try: in your iPhone’s Settings, go to General > Storage & iCloud usage > Manage Storage. From there you'll see the Big Cartel app - select it and delete it. Next, try reinstalling the app from the App Store. That ought to clear it up!
