AKD Web Store - How To

Below is a quick list of things you may need help with while visiting our web store

Reset Password - this feature is not working for some customers, so please e-mail me if you continue to have problems and I'll manually change your password for you :)

  • STEP 1 - Click on "Forgot your password?"
  • STEP 2 - The system will take you to a webpage that says "Change Your Password" and you will need to enter your E-mail Address and click on "Continue".
  • STEP 3 - The system will take you to another webpage that says "Sign in to Your Account" and that  "An email was sent to your inbox. It contains a link which you must click to confirm your password change."
  • STEP 4 - Go to your e-mail inbox and look for a message that is from "AKDesigns Boutique Machine Embroidery [orders@akdesignsboutique.com]" and the Subject is "Password change request for AKDesigns Boutique Machine Embroidery". There will be a link in the body of the e-mail that you can click or you can copy and paste it in your browser address bar. 
    • NOTES:
      • E-mails are sent automatically, so if you don't receive an e-mail, please check the following items:
        • Is it in your Spam or Junk e-mail folder?
        • Is your e-mail address correct?
        • The server may be running slow and it might just be delayed, so give it a little more time.
      • If you click this link more than once, you'll receive an error message: "The link you were given in the Request Password email is invalid. Please request another new password to receive a new link."
  • STEP 5 - When you click the link you'll be taken back to the webpage and it says "Sign in to Your Account" and that "Your password has been changed. An email will be sent to xxxxxx@xxxxxxxx.com which will contain your new password."
  • STEP 6 - Go back to your e-mail inbox and look for a message that is from "AKDesigns Boutique Machine Embroidery [orders@akdesignsboutique.com]" and the Subject is "Password change request for AKDesigns Boutique Machine Embroidery". This time, there will be a password in the body that is bold at the end of the sentence. It's probably best to copy & paste the new password into the password field to make it easy.
    Note: This new password usually contains symbols, numbers and letters and is case sensitive, so make sure that you type it exactly as shown.
