When setting up my shop account, I have entered my shop url as : http://www.shapeways.com/shop/(MyShopName). I get a warning that says: Valid characters are a-z, A-Z, 0-9, and "-_". Apparently the system is not accepting my url. How do I correct that? Thanks

Looks like you already figured it out judging by your store link, but for any future Shapeways users starting up that have the same problem, I'll post anyway for future reference:

If you screwed up like me and assumed you needed to copy & paste the entire URL and your unique shop name into the box--you don't. The only thing that goes into the URL box is your store name itself, without the whole http://shapeways stuff. That's of course, assuming you're not using anything special characters.

Also should be noted that if there's a space, it'll add %20 or something similar in between the spaces. Your only options are to either use an underscore, dashes, or the ideal option; no spaces.
