The 500 character limit on the Product Description is unnecessarily restrictive

It is great that you can use markdown in this field - makes it nice and easy!

However, when setting this up just now, I found that I wanted more text to fully explain things. And I hit the limit (it wasn’t obvious that there was one until I tripped over it).

Also, I needed to add some markdown elements (image with a link), which really blew out the limit.

May I suggest:

  1. That the character limit is lifted to 1000 characters

  2. The fact that you can use markdown is made obvious

  3. That the limit is made explicit before people break it (somehow) - although this is a minor irritation in the scheme of things
