stabat mater dolorosa

current store status and coupon codes

As of May 14, I have updated/corrected/fixed the following:

- The services like light settings and consultations were charging shipping. Obviously this is an error. I think I have corrected it now, and I am in the process of refunding the shipping paid by anyone whose order should not have had a shipping charge. This may take some time, but if you haven't gotten a refund on shipping charged for altar work or services by this weekend, feel free to respond to your order acknowledgment email and ask me about it. I'm learning my way around still!


As of May 14, you can find goods and services in the following locations online:

www.Karma Zain.com now points to the new storefront - it's shiny even though it still has a few bugs being worked out.

By way of apology for the bugginess, still not ironed out a month later due to all kinds of local craziness including more than one flood in the area, I have set up new coupon codes effective today (May 14) that you can use on any cart items at all (including services), throughout the shop, for the whole month of May:

may22 $22.00 off orders equal or above $100.00
may10 $10.00 off orders equal or above $60.00
may5 $5.00 off orders equal or above $30.00


Using Discount Codes:

"For direct payment gateways [this means if you use a credit card to pay through shopify payments], the discount code can be entered on page 2 of the checkout process when the customer has the opportunity to select a shipping method and enter in credit card information.

"PayPal Express, being an offsite payment gateway, works a bit differently. This is the PayPal Express Checkout's workflow: when checking out, your customer goes to paypal.com right away, where PayPal collects his shipping and billing addresses. After that, the customer returns to Shopify where he picks a shipping rate, types in a discount code (if you have discount codes that are 'active'), the price is updated accordingly and, on that same page, your customer gets to finalize his transaction."

I am working my way through the inbox backlog as quick as I can -- see the latest status update post for more info about why the backlog is so awful right now (and it is seriously awful) and where you are in the queue for various things.

If you want something that hasn't been updated in the new shop yet, holler at me - I'm happy to move your desired item to the front of the long queue of things that need manual updates before they can be released as inventory.

You can book Consultations at the storefront, using the appropriate category and selecting the type you want and then adding it to your cart and checking out. You can book light settings and altar work extensions at the storefront here and other types of altar work at my blog, Big Lucky Hoodoo, or at AIRR. (I am not very happy with the way I currently have the light settings page set up, as you have to read down through a mass of text to see the item/service descriptions right now, but it does work, and it will stay up/available even when I do change it.)
