Hi Kelly, from LambsEars...my daughter is 13 years old and it's her shop. She's had her small business for 2 years and people are starting to recognize her name and because it has her nickname at the end...Adri. Artfire has the capability of using the entire business name. Not sure why Etsy can't. By the way...we love your shop!!! :):):)
Sounds great. I was wondering when (2 months ago) you guys were going to make an announcement on the API mailing list, so we could all start getting our code ready to use shop_id?
PLEASE HELP... I have orders to ship out...It seems under your account the sold button has disappeared that takes you to the page that shows what items have sold and are not shipped, shipped and all sold... Can anyone help me find this page?
I changed both my shop name and how my user name would show up.

Both were immediate changes. There was no waiting or pre approval and nothing pending.

For once, I think I did something correct the first time.

Click on Your Shop at the top of the page. Then click on sold orders on the left side of the screen.
I'm glad I read this news, I had been concerned about privacy isseus with using full names instead of just the shop name, but now I understand why you've made the changes. I think it's sounds like a great way of helping customers find our shop, thanks!
Do we have the option of having the shop name displayed first and then our name?
Do I have to change the name within a certain amount of time? Or will this option be permanent?
I don't think so Trish. Or you should swap your shop and user name probably ;) but that's not what you want to do I think!

You will always have the option to change your shop name one time. If you need to change you shop name a second time, you can submit a request to change your shop name.
