Will coupon codes stack if a customer uses multiple?

If a customer uses multiple coupon codes, they will not stack and add additional discounts. The coupon code that results in the greatest discount will be applied.

Is there a way to have a discount code that will not affect the fundraising amount?

Yes, if the fundraising is in dollar amount, a coupon won't affect the fundraising amount. If the fundraising amount is in percentage, a discount code will affect the fundraising amount. 

If my coupon code is not working, how do I fix it? 

If your coupon code is not working and you are receiving an error make sure that you try the following:

  • Delete and recreate the code

  • Make sure the code does not have any spaces 

Do coupon codes affect shipping cost?

Shipping cost is added after any discounted coupon codes.

Customizable store description with HTML

We're excited to introduce a new feature this week: customizable store descriptions for Printavo Merch.

View our test store here to see what HTML looks like on a live Printavo Merch online store.

You can now modify your online store's descriptions with basic HTML formatting, including:

  • Header tags
  • Bold, italics, and other text formatting
  • Links
  • Images

This will let you convey important information, add links (such as your terms and conditions or email contact), and offer a more visually appealing product for your customers.

Here are a few simple tips for formatting your Merch store descriptions.

  • Keep descriptions short
    • Less is more: convey only what you must.
  • Test extensively and notify us at Printavo Support if you discover any issues
    • To test, open your store in one browser tab and refresh it when you save changes to your description
    • Be sure to test on mobile as well
  • Small images work best
    • In general, we don't recommend images–but we're curious to see how you use them!
    • Images should not exceed  600 pixels in width for desktop display...
    • ...or exceed 320 pixels for mobile display
    • If unsure, use images no wider than 320 pixels wide in descriptions
    • Currently, images are not resized–test carefully!
  • Headers work great for emphasis
  • Link to your terms and conditions
    • Reduce confusion and clarify exact terms
    • If you need some example terms and conditions, check out our Guide to Online Stores.

We're happy to continue improving and iterating on Printavo Merch. We want to provide screen printers and custom print shops with a powerful online store tool. 

As usual, you can see recent changes, improvements, and updates to Printavo on the Printavo changelog.

Additionally, here's a list of the basic HTML formatting functions.
