Recently I wondered what shapeways may do to increase our shop business.

For me it would be:
- Opening printing office in USA (I think that's on the way)
- Ordering from the shop's gallery (so multiple items can be selected and added to the basket in one step)
- Adding more colors would boost my shop
(for me adding colors to the detailed materials like silver, gold, chrome, brown, ...)
(Maybe that could also be achieved by partner offices, doing this job ?)

Would be very interested in some thoughts from the other shop owners.


More than 10000 items sold over SW (but still a hobby)

- Customer should be able to place an order without prior registration

- Shapeways should not cancel co-creator orders without contacting the designer, allowing to fix the error

- proper support for currencies other than USD, in particular: EUR

and our all-time favourite:
- Come up with a better pricing model for co-creator items, click for details
