Local Pickup

  • Creators can now choose to enable a local pickup option to appear for backers.
    • Creators can apply a specific shipping fee just for local pickup.

Add-on region hiding

  • Creators can now hide add-ons from appearing to backers from a specific region.
    • When backers from the region are on the add-on page, they will not see the add-on.

Lock Orders with Final Notice

  • Creators can now choose to Lock Orders with Final Notice.
    • Backers will be notified that it is their last chance to make any changes to their order. This includes a last chance to add any add-ons. After 48 hours, all orders will automatically be locked.

Bug Fixes/Improvements

  • Upgraded our payment services to handle Strong Customer Authentication as outlined in the Revised Directive on Payment Services (PSD2).
  • Fixed a bug that was incorrectly importing backers from select Indiegogo perks if the perk contained an add-on on Indiegogo.
  • Clarified our FAQ page to make it easier for backers to get answers to common issues.
  • Backers can now see all of their tracking numbers on their confirmation page if they have multiple orders.
  • Fixed a bug that allowed creators to mark multiple add-ons as featured, which would accidentally hide add-ons.
