The store could use some serious upgrading. We're an arts organization that sells our members work through our site. A way to easily categorize and filter/sort by artist or art type would be extremely useful. Right now I have to make a store page for every artists and every art type and then only display items with those specific tags. And there are no options for how to display products - they're all just a mush of thumbnails. In general the store functionality is too simplistic compared to what other services offer.

When attempting to edit the System Page for Online Store Product, the following message pops up instead of the editing mode:
"Internal error. Error occurred. It has been logged and will be processed shortly. Sorry for the inconvenience."
Define "shortly"... having a store that we can work on would be a good first step, let alone allow better organizing.

The store front is really limited.
What we have done is use the store as a front that links to squareup.com Significantly better option.
Arts organization, also. would be great to search/filter for artist name, medium and price. Anyone figure out a work-around?

We are in the same boat. Selling our members' art work. The store really wasn't designed to be this sophisticated but I think many organizations have needs that go beyond selling logo items for the member organization -- particularly now with online shopping being even more important due to the pandemic. You can see our shop at https://northshoreartistsleague.org. Then choose shop. I think our needs and the way we currently deal with it are almost identical to the original poster's request.

absolutely great idea. the store is so simplistically formatted. it needs to allow for categorization and not just tags.
