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:
- Itâ€™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, just for the sake of being able to focus our resources in a more efficient manner over the next few weeks. For example, registering, is not currently enabled. Initially we are asking for your feedback regarding the overall sense of the new design. We will be taking your feedback to our development teams for discussion and prioritization.
- Beta sites often come offline. We will obviously try to limit this as much as we can, but things sometimes happen with beta websites. Please do not let this affect your usage of shopgoodwill.com. Throughout this process if something isnâ€™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.
