Invitation to Try a New shopgoodwill.com

We are in the process of building the next generation of our shopgoodwill.com platform. We are striving to make shopgoodwill.com a premier e-commerce venue for you. To that end we would appreciate any time you could give to visiting https://beta.shopgoodwill.com and provide your feedback to us.

A couple things to know:

  • It’s not finished. There is still plenty of time for you to provide a voice regarding its development and future.
  • During this limited beta preview, there are some features we have turned off including:
    • New Registrations
    • Open Orders Page - This includes payment pages
    • Buy Now Option - Due to it's connection to the payment process
  • Beta sites often go offline. We will try to limit this as much possible. Please do not let this affect your usage of shopgoodwill.com. Throughout this process if something isn’t working, please use the original site at www.shopgoodwill.com
  • This is real data. Because we have two designs now in production, you may see some inconsistencies in how items look on the old site versus the new site. As we get closer to launching the product descriptions will start to look more uniform.
  • Because we are making frequent changes to the site, it may be prudent to clear your browser cache after new releases.

What's new

  • Saved Sellers
    • You can now save sellers to your profile. Search and Advanced Search will display items from your selected sellers
    • To save sellers, Login to the site > go to My Shopgoodwill > Personal Information > Change Search Preferences
  • Saved Searches
    • You can now save searches. To use this feature, Login to the site > run a search > click the 'Save Search' button on the results page
    • You can view your saved searches under My Shopgoodwill > Saved Searches.
  • Watchlist
    • You can now add notes to watch list items. Select 'View Notes' to see and edit notes about watchlist items
    • Added option to delete all closed auctions
    • Added option to check specific auctions, then delete all checked auctions
  • Advanced Search
    • The category drop down will now only show parent categories. When you select a category, a dropdown for subcategories will appear
    • An item number field has been added. (Note: on the beta site you can search for item numbers directly in the search bar as well)
  • Listings Page
    • Added filter for 1c shipping items
    • Added filter for only pickup only items (all results will be items that are pickup items)
    • Added filter out pickup only items (no results will be pickup items)
  • Personal Shopper is now a list view
  • 'Email a Friend' sharing option has been added to the item page

Bug Fixes

  • Homepage - The site clock has been changed to 12 hour format.
  • You can now page the results of an Advanced Search for 1c shipping items
  • A 'date range' for a closed items search is automatically added in listings and advanced search
  • Users can set 'date range' for a closed items search in advanced search
  • When you change categories in a search, you will start on page 1 of the new category (previously you stayed on the same page)
  • Featured items will now vary while searching (previously only two items would always be displayed)
  • Auctions in Progress columns can now be sorted
  • The item page Shipping Calculator calculates shipping for your default address when you open an item page. You no longer have to click 'calculate' to get a quote with your default address
  • The category link on an item page will open a search for that category now (previously would error out)

What we're hearing:

  • Change font size/contrast (this is an ongoing task)

Known Issues:

  • Performance - We are gathering performance metrics and will be addressing issues regarding performance as we gather the data. Specific pages will be reported here for your information.
  • Design Inconsistency - The item detail information will look drastically different between the old site and the beta. This is a known issue and will lessen over time.
  • Mobile Responsive Design - We will soon be re-focusing on the experience in mobile to provide a more effective user interface
