Some of you may have received an error when trying to purchase shoes on Odd Shoe Finder.
Have you seen something like this?
When we upgraded our website last year we had to transfer all the data from the old database to a new one. The process was lengthy and complicated. One thing we didn’t realise until recently was that not all the information was properly transferred.
The new website requires that all users have registered both a shipping address (if they want to buy) and a payment profile (for selling).
To set up your shipping address, log into oddshoefinder.com and navigate to buy / shipping profile or click this link:
The new Odd Shoe Finder website allows you to save any particular search and then be notified every time there’s a new listing that fits the criteria.
For example, let’s say you searched for men’s shoes in sizes L9.5/R12. A number of options come up, but you’re not interested in any of these shoes – maybe they’re not the right sort of shoe or the price is too much.
To make it easier and faster for the next time you visit the site, you can save your search. You do that by clicking “save search”.
A new screen will pop up and you will need to name the search. In our example, I have just called it “L9.5/R12” but you could call it anything.
The next time you visit Odd Shoe Finder, you will be able to use this saved search without having to re-submit the criteria. Furthermore, you will be automatically notified by email if a listing is made matching your search criteria.
You can access your saved search from the Favourites Drop Down Box.
Please note that we don’t recommend you rely entirely on the email notification service from Odd Shoe Finder.
Sometimes emails get caught up in the spam folder or are missed or someone might list something that doesn’t quite meet your criteria, but you might otherwise consider (e.g. somebody lists an L10/R12 in a shoe style/brand that you really want).
That’s why you should still return to the site from time to time.
