    Yes. I was aware it was a Genesis Only outfit. I just rather expected new products to be usable in Poser now that DAZ and SM have a Genesis solution implemented for Poser that does not require DAZ Studio to be installed on a computer.

    Kinda hard to convert yourself if you're one of those customers unable to run DS4 :wink:

    Hi Satira, it may be worth checking with Richard or someone but iirc one of the benefits of dson files is that you can give them to people to use and as long as they own the product it will work. Hope I've explained this properly but I'm sure someone mentioned in one of the threads that you can get others to convert them for you and provide you with the dson file without eula problems.

    Like I said best to check with Richard or someone but I'm fairly sure it can be done...

    More great deals in the new Category sale: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/clothing-accessories/

    Grabbed a bunch of Genesis content $2.54 or less that are not PC items!

    I wish they would stop changing the prices on everything over and over -_- Yesterday early in the morning there was a bunch of things at really good discounts but a few hours later the prices doubled (for example, Genesis Ethnic Bundle was $8 then jumped up to the $16). Other items went down in price though yesterday and I had grabbed the Anime Dress + Textures and Percy for each under $2 as well as that Ruffle Bikini to boost the price up to nearly the full $6 so I could get the most out of my coupon. Yesterday, Ruffle Bikini was only 74c, and today it's $1.49.

    Anybody know what keeps going on with the prices bouncing around like crazy? :(

    I hear they've been having a tough time with the sales prices -- a lot of Genesis stuff got extra discounts applied when they created the sale category for them, then they fixed those, I'm still seeing some items with weird discounts, either too much or too little. If I see something I want at more than 75% off, I assume it's a mistake and get it fast before it gets fixed.

    I think the main issue is that they didn't intend the big bundles to be included in the deep discounts, but then all the items in the bundles were also pulled from the discount category. At least, what I'm seeing is that the big bundles (e.g. M5 Starter) and the individual products in that bundle are set to the same discount, and not nearly as attractive as the other items on sale.

    But for a few hours at the start of the sale, those bundles were on some insane discount level, and the items in them were at the same discount as the rest of the sale. I can understand why they changed the bundles. I just wish the individual items were still discounted like the others. It's weird to see the textures for a set at a few dollars, but the set itself ten dollars or so more.

    Been at the hospital full time since Friday am with my sick dad, so I haven't had a chance to even install what I bought last week. Just got him home, which makes me a lucky duck, cause he's so much better. But then I found out that I'm a doubly lucky duck. :lol: I'm a lucky lucky duck!!!!...:red: Oops. Gotta calm down and watch those typos.

    Thank you, Daz. I think I'll use my new goodies make a cartoon to cheer Dad up. Then I'm going to go on another Daz shopping spree.

    Anyone noticed the 1st post's been altered to say Pro Suite instead of Pro Bundle in the BuyItAll section. Wonder if they've changed it or if it's a mistake.

    If it was a mistake thats a big one to make they updated all three product lines to say the same thing. I didn't even know steph had a pro suite.

    EDIT: Can't find in store, can anyone share a link? Or will this be something new.

    Hey, I thought there were 2 free coupons to use this month at Daz, for something like a total of $10 dollars...but i can't find it mentioned anywhere. I searched my emails and not a single reference. Am I crazy?????

    Edit:
    It's the Platinum club voucher $6 and an extra $4 but it's not working....

    I added daz items to my cart, and apply the coupon (no spaces in front or back) and it says coupon is applied but there's NO change in prize.

    Why is it broken??
    Figures. :( HELP.

    I can't buy things unless the vouchers are working....
    I can't get an annual membership RENEWAL because I have to pay $100 (and then ge 30 back) but i don't HAVE a 100, I don't even have a 30, unless it takes the vouchers.

    Really, really irritated and let down by how poorly the basics are handled.
    Feel rather like we're being encouraged to NOT renew membership...
    Had a bad day and not being able to check out and i'm afraid the PC bundles I'm trying to get will also end their price....
    :(

    Can you do a forced refresh or "update cart" to the shopping cart page after coupon-applying?

  • DisparateDreamerDisparateDreamer Posts: 1,565

    Sorry to hear you're having issues :(

    is there an advantage to annual membership right now, other than the small price difference? That may be enough of a reason but for me it may not be. Was just wondering if there were other incentives I missed.

    :(

    Coupons will not "stack", they can only used as one coupon per order, one time usage.
    Coupons cannot be used on 1.99 items, Published Artist items or Platinum Club renewals.
    If any one of those items are in your cart at checkout time, the coupon will be rejected.

    These have been the rules for coupons ever since the new site began.
    Sorry,

    Honestly, with that type of error (unless the checkout's screwed up again, which is always possible) it sounds like you're applying it to items it's not valid for.

    Oh and if you're following all those rules (as you may be) you need to contact the Help Desk and let them help you out..

    I wonder why there was nothing new in the store today. I thought we always got something new every weekday, but I guess not.

    Okay since I am a monthly member and get the amount just billed to my card every month, I need to ask, What would be the benefit of paying annually? This always keeps me short on time for the monthly PC coupon because it does not seem to get assigned until the 18th when they get paid and is not active for another two or three days.

    Well, for one thing...$7.95 x 12 months = $95.40, whereas you can get the annual right now for $69.95. So you've saved about $25. I haven't checked, but in the past they've given a $30 voucher when you renew or join annually during this sale. I think maybe they aren't doing that this year...sadly...but I could be wrong. As far as I know, if you are a member and just changing from monthly to annual renewal, you don't get charged the $30 setup fee.

    At $7.95 per month (if that is what it is) a year's membership comes in at 95.40. Renewal on annual memberships are about 69.96. (You can generally find them for that at various points of the year. Or used to at any rate.)

    Don't knw if they will give you the discount for changing from monthly to annual though. The first annual membership may be the full price.

    The $30 voucher was only when you joined the first time. And since the store no longer does vouchers, it may no longer be available.

    I got the $30 voucher when I switched from monthly to annual, and again when I renewed the annual membership last year in the sale. And I did get the discount when I switched from monthly to annual.

    Sorry,

    Not exactly. You can have Daz originals AND PA items in the cart, the coupon should only apply to the Daz originals.

    It's not working anymore though.

    yes I have bought a ton of stuff. I don't know whether the Pc coupon only applies to PC or nonPC or originals or what, but I had a bit of everything in my cart and neither of them would apply. the only one I got to work was the 10 dollar one for buying 100 dollars of stuff.

    This would be the first time I ever heard that it had ever worked in the new store; that is, using a coupon at checkout with any products the coupon will not apply to present in your cart. Try putting one item in your cart (and only one) that is a Daz Original that is about $5 or higher and use the $4 coupon on it. If that doesn't work, you have a different problem.

    Didn't annual PC subscribers also get that pack of classic Gen4 items remastered for Genesis last year? Or was that for all PC members?

    This year far as i know there is no renewal voucher, no renewal discount, and no renewal package/perks. buy it all packages are for sets that are already out instead of something new this time, too. (so very likely you already have it) Oh and if you actually want to buy the renewal, prepare to shell out an extra $30 at the time of payment because you have to pay the first time package, and then get the difference refunded.

    Can't figure out why this PC celebrate is just not as exciting as the previous years tho.... LOL....

    Yes this is the problem I've been complaining about, I think the issue is resolved though. The thing to be worried about is if you tried to place an order and got the "we can not place order at this time, try again later" message. If you got that message there is a chance it DID process in the back and begun to charge you.


    Because of this issue I had duplicate charges on my account. Daz couldn't find the charges in their records so they wouldn't stop them. I had 6 duplicate charges go through on my bank and 1 through paypal. Fortunately I had already filled a claim with my bank when I saw the duplicates. As soon as the duplicate charges cleared the bank called me and got Daz on the phone to correct. Daz was able to refund the paypal one as well.
