Store QR Codes

We've generated a unique QR Code for your Store Page. You can download your QR code at the bottom of your store profile page (menu -> Seller Profile). This will take someone directly to your page without them having to fumble with URLs or searching.

In case you've been living under a rock, a QR code is a 2-dimensional barcode which users can scan with their phone to take them to a page. They've become especially popular in the post-Covid world for contactless interfaces for things like restaurant menus.

A neat feature about our QR codes is that you can customize where the QR code goes. So far there are two options: It can go to your store page OR directly to your listings.

Where would you use these? Anywhere you want to promote your brand and products.

Some ideas:

  • Stickers: imagine your customers slapping these on their tub, incubators or water bottles, and being able to immediately access your animals for sale whenever they are reminded of you. Here's a QR sticker printing service.
  • At your expo booth setup, on a banner or just a sheet of paper on the table.
  • Shirts, and other merch.

As a bonus we have now provided easy access to high resolution MorphMarket logos in case you want to use these in your materials. We have had users put these on business cards, shirts, expo setups and even vehicle wraps!

We are committed to providing you as a breeder the full range of products and services for your business or hobby.

"All Regions" MorphMap, and Region Filters
"All Regions" MorphMap, and Region Filters

Geographical Regions on MorphMarket just got more flexible and are about to get even more awesome.

MorphMarket has been an international service since 2017. At that time, we expanded beyond the US to introduce additional regions to support Europe and South Africa. Canada has also tagged along in the US Region, which would have been more properly named the North American region.

You will notice that there is no longer a region setting in the upper left corner of the web browser or the bottom left corner of the app. That's because regions are now just a setting/filter on some pages which allow you to narrow or widen your results when you're browsing the trait indices, ads or stores. In this setting you will also notice a new "All Regions" option, which allows you to browse results across the world.

What's coming:

  • Single-country regions for countries within the supported regions (e.g., US, CA, UK, DE)
  • A proper North American region
  • Support for additional countries
  • Fixes for regions on our Events system

Please note that proximity search for ads has already been an option in the advanced search menu and is still supported. This lets you search within a number of miles or kilometers from a given location.

Let us know what region or country you'd like to see support for in the comments below.

MorphMarket Regions are dead, long live Regions!

Bulk import is a capability which allows you to create and manage hundreds of animal entries with very little effort. This is a great way to upload your entire not-for-sale collection to the Animal Manager. You do not need to use import to be an effective MorphMarket user, but for those who want more hands-on control this is a useful feature.

We announced the beta version of Bulk Import 2.0 last May, but since then we have made a number of fixes and added a complimentary Export 2.0. Version 2 is a powerful upgrade from the original that supports:

  • More than two dozen fields including description, multiple photos, and status
  • Managing animals in different categories at the same time
  • Overriding animal traits automatically extracted from the ad title
  • Importing large datasets which are processed in the background

Export has also been upgraded to include all of the same fields which Import supports, along with a few extras such as engagement metrics. In fact, for the first time you can now export your Collection, modify some values, and Import it again.

You can still utilize the older Import 1.0 format for a limited time, but you will need to follow the link on the import page to this legacy page. This video and our documentation provide useful information in those transitioning from version 1 to 2.
