2.13.15 Jesse has been hard at work behind the scenes in the website with the goal of making the buying experience smoother for everyone. Right now his goal is to have everything in place and test runs completed on Tuesday. Which means we need to delay the Valentine Day update. 🙁 The good part is there will be more spindles than we have ready to go right now. We’re tentatively planning the next update of spindles to be posted either Wednesday or Thursday, Feb 18th or 19th.
If you would rather we put off the next update until Saturday, Feb 21st please leave a comment. I’d hoped to post a number of spindles tomorrow afternoon (Saturday) so that most people wouldn’t need to worry about trying to get a spindle during the workday (USA/Canada). It doesn’t matter to us which day we post the spindles, once the site is ready, we want to make it as easy as possible on our customers.
The new changes will be well worth this extra wait. The whole shopping experience should be straightforward for everyone. You will be able to see at a glance which spindles are still available on the main page, without first adding it to your cart. Also, the time period to click through to buy will be much shorter. If the time limit (five minutes) passes before the person buys it the spindle will automatically be removed from the cart and made available.
The worst of Ed’s horrible cold is behind him. This week he found out pretty quickly that he wasn’t able to work as he’d planned. Getting older means the body just doesn’t spring back like it did a decade ago.
