The promo e-mail just sent to me by DAZ states very clearly that if you buy this product you also “Get 33% off Flipmode’s Entire Store”.


Um, no. That does not work.


1) Put “Easy Environments Eternal Sands” in your cart.


2) Add “Easy Environments Mountain Trail” expecting to get 33% off.


3) Go to Shopping Cart.


4) No discount. Mountain Trail shows at full price.


This is not the first time that DAZ have lost a sale from me because they have sent me a promo that actually doesn’t work in practice.


Update: Having read somewhere that DAZ defer the discount until you have actually specified the payment type, I just tried going all the way to “Place Order” but the discount still does not appear. So, unfortunately, this is a broken deal. And it’s not the first.

The link does not even give me Eternal Sands, and there is one item showing as 33% off, and that is Greenlands?

It looks to me like it has not been set up properly yet, you could ask Support, or try again a little bit later?

Of course the ‘Newer than 60 days’ rule applies here as well.

Eternal Sands is here: http://www.daz3d.com/easy-environments-eternal-sands - it comes up when you browse the new products.


It’s rather stupid of DAZ to send out promo e-mails before the store is setup to handle the promo. Many customers do not try again; they get annoyed and then just walk away.


Update:


Ah, yes, the “Newer Than Sixty Days Rule”. That old favourite that DAZ uses to make a deal appear more appealing than it really is! If it does apply (and I don’t see any mention of it in the promo e-mail) then that would explain it all.


Oh, well. The sound of footsteps walking away can be heard wink

Hi guys,

I just woke up and saw that newsletter ... and ...uhm, how to say it… wasn`t exactly pleased about it myself.
I mailed Daz right away, but I think it`s not their office time right now, so it may be a while until I get any response.

As for Mountain Trail not being discounted, like JimmyC said, that may have to do with the “newer than 60 days” rule.
But it`s not what I had intended at all.

I`ll get back here as soon as I get a reply from Daz.

Thanks Flipmode for replying, I’m sure it can be sorted out.  I will keep an eye on this thread.  As I write this, it is 3:40 AM in Utah, so we will have to wait a few hours yet smile

Thanks for the patience guys.
Most of the stuff should be fixed now.

Eternal Sands should sell for $9.95 (some page may still show $10.02, just take care it`s correct when checking out).

My whole store is on 33% sale now, buying Eternal Sands is NOT a requirement like the newsletter and promotion suggests.

The boxing shoes are available again, but they are supposed to be free, which they were not last time I checked. I hope this get`s changed as well soon. (Update: they are set to $0.00 now)

Yay

His whole store is on sale now. thank you.

Picked up the boxing shoes to complete the Fight Club set and almost got something I already have. Sigh. Will have to wait on the prison yard which for some crazy reason I have a desire but no use for.

Installing Eternal Sands in five (or after lunch).

Great news. Both items went straight in my cart.


Thanks for chasing up on this and getting it all sorted.

Flipmode, are there any morphs for the terrain in Eternal Sands or is it a static prop with displacement maps?

Hi Media Head,

No morphs, but 3 different preloads.
The natural trail (with removeable footsteps), the cracked earth trail, and a flat version (There is no preview for the flat version on the store, but you can see it at the end of the overview vid http://flipmode3d.com/easyenvironmentsvideos/ )

In case you are about scaling the hills…simply scaling along the y-axis works fine for that. wink
