Did You Attend the IndieCommerce Institute?
If you attended the IndieCommerce Institute (ICI) at Wi14, your sample site will remain available to you until the end of March. We encourage you to use it to test new ideas. If you run into any difficulties or have any questions about your test site, don’t hesitate to contact us.

If you wish to provide any specific feedback about ICI (beyond what you may have submitted through the evaluation in the Wi14 app), please forward your comments and suggestions to We look forward to hearing from you.

Pending Kobo Payments
Kobo revenue share payments were delayed due to Winter Institute and the holiday shopping season. Pending payments will be processed this week in three-month blocks. Stores should see the funds credited to their bank accounts in the next couple of weeks.

Your One-on-One Session at Wi14
We had the opportunity to meet with 73 ABA member stores last week during the IndieCommerce one-on-one sessions at Wi14. We want to thank all of the stores that stopped by to meet with us, and offer our sincerest apologies to those stores we could not fit into our meeting schedule. If you were one of those stores, we will reach out to you via email over the next week. If you have questions regarding your one-on-one meeting, please email

Pre-order and IndieCommerce Panel Discussions
If you attended either the pre-order panel discussion or the IndieCommerce panel discussion at Wi14 and have additional questions about those panels, please email us at

Thanks for reading. Feel free to email us with any thoughts, questions, or suggestions.
