Q: WHAT IS POPSHOPLIVE?
A: It's an iOS app and a website where you can watch artists and shops stream live AND you can buy items directly from the people you are watching inside the app / website.
Q: HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
A. Create a Popshoplive account, add in your shipping and payment info, and follow all the shops and artists you love by typing in their 6-digit "invite code" - the Tenacious code is DANGER and the 3DRetro code is ARTTOY - any of your other artists or shops you enjoy buying from will be posting their codes all week long so just pay attention, type in those codes and make sure you follow the people you want to follow.
Q: BUT HOW DOES IT WORK FOR DCON?
A: It will be just like being at a regular convention - you can watch / talk to shops and artists (they speak, you hear them, and your way of interacting with them is by using a chat window which ends up being a fun group chat). Just like real life, you will most likely have to watch / visit with one artist or shop at a time, so you'd take note of when they will be broadcasting and go to their stream when they go live. Popshoplive app makes this very easy to follow as they will tell you when your favorite shops or artists will go live.
Q: I have an Android phone and cant DL the iOS app!
A; Don't stress, just watch the shows / broadcasts via your web browser on desktop or anywhere else.
