Inspiration for artists & news from Big Cartel

Preview the New (Security-Minded) Settings Admin

We're thrilled to preview the final section of the new admin we've been building: Settings. Like the other sections, Settings has been redesigned from the ground up, making it easier than ever to set up your shop.

Settings

Everything's now simplified under one roof. You can change your shop name or email, improve your search engine optimization and social sharing by adding a shop description and profile image, choose the right design, update your checkout options and billing plan, and so much more.

As exciting as those features are, the real stars of the show are the new security settings. Stay in full control of important changes to your shop, and always be aware of who has access to it. Here's how it all works.

Add a backup phone number

Backup phone number

Forget your password? Can't access your email address either?! Geez, you're having a bad day. Well, the good news is you can now link a phone number to your Big Cartel account for just this situation. Once linked, we can text you a pin code to reset your password and get you right back into your admin. Do it now before you forget!

Password confirmations on big changes

Password confirmation

Important changes to your shop, like changing your email, phone number, password, or closing your account, now require your account's password. No one's doing anything without the magic word!

Review your active devices

Active devices

Did you remember to log out that time you checked your dashboard from that coffee shop computer? What about that time you borrowed a friend's phone to update an order? Exorcise your login demons by reviewing all devices that currently have access to your admin, and give any one of them the boot.

Review your connected apps

Apps

Easily keep tabs on all of the apps and integrations you've used to trick out your shop. Whether you're printing shipping labels with ShipStation, selling digital products with Pulley, socializing with a Facebook Store, or printing on-demand with Printful, we've got your apps covered.

Give it a try

These are just a few of the many improvements we've made, and you can check them out now by clicking the Preview our new admin button on the settings pages of our current admin, or by visiting my.bigcartel.com/preview/settings.
