Our Maker Shop Dashboard is a powerful management tool that allows Makers to manage every aspect of their shop. It is also simple to use. Makers can manage their orders including marking the orders shipped, adding order notes and even printing out shipping labels. Makers can create coupons for their customers that will be applied at checkout to their products only. This ensures that coupons created by one Maker cannot be used on other Maker Shops.

Customers can rate products easily giving valuable feedback to further increase sales. Makers can get information about their sales data and have complete control over their stores with detailed settings options.
