• Artiasns & vendors will be given the ability (if they wish) to allow customers to upload images or pictures of anything they wish for the artisan to see to customize products even further. Example- Let's say you make jewelry and the customer wanted a custom piece. They can upload a photo of lets say, a certain picture of a flower, for the artisan to duplicate into the jewelry. This technology is wonderful and allows for endless opportunity for the vendor/artisan and endless possibilities for special products.
