I don’t see why they want to change it, just leave it in our account & only able to use it on Daz stuff.

I agree, if everyone has the same code, they could use it, then tell a friend of family member the code & everyone uses it that’s not paying to be a member. lol

But again none of this new store, compares to the old one, I no a lot of my friends I am in Posers groups with have stop buying here & said they want, most have all the 4 stuff & now that 5 is taking it over, guess it will just be for Daz only, then I’m out I only know Posers.
Guess Render…. with be picking up more members. lol

I like the old way. :(

I agree with the great admins that try to keep us updated, and getting all the dirt trown over them…..Thanks girls & Guys
BUT! I have to wine a bit too :o)
I was a pc member for a longgg time, I just checked my account…and ughhh still no subscriptions, no coupon
When I tried to renew my pc membership it says to pay the $20.97 for the first time…...HUH¿¿¿¿¿ I already did this once years ago, But If I don’t pay the $20.97 I can’t pay for my membership….............I am sooooooooo dazzled
English is not my best language, so keeping up to date isn’t either

I would imagine that the coupon will be like the ones on the old store - it will have to be activated on your account before you can use it, and once used it will be cancelled. That way it won’t matter where it’s published.

JoelleD - it looks as if you are a PC member - $20.97 is the usual start up price less PC discount, so that bit is working. Are you seeing PC items at $1.99, and the 30% of on DAZ items that aren’t otherwise on sale?

I’m glad to find this thread. I just signed up for PC last week and wondered why I hadn’t gotten a coupon. At least now I know it’s not just me.

Welcome to the PC, Fobok1! I’m still a relatively new member myself, but I can tell you that the chaos you’re seeing right now is not representative of what things were like earlier this year (between February and May). So while you may have picked the wrong time to join, I guess the good news is that things should hopefully continue getting progressively less messy for a while. And yes, you’re in the same boat as everyone else as far as the coupon is concerned.

OK sorry that I haven’t been keeping up and I don’t feel like going over all the thread here to get the answer so I’m just going to ask it here?

Whats going on with the PC, it seems there are some problems or something with our vouchers but it looks like there is more going on.

What else has changed or gone wrong since the site up date because honestly I have no idea whats happening

Best way is to read through this thread here.    http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/1556/

I can even merge your post into the thread, to make it easier for you, if you would prefer. 

See, quite painless.

Adding this here as well…it was added to my thread I have going in the Commons but since these things are both being discussed here I am going to post it here for those that may have missed it (Though I urge you all to bookmark this thread or subscribe to it, or just check the first post in it occasionally for the most up to date info http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/115/):


ALL THOSE HAVING PC MEMBERSHIP ISSUES, PLEASE READ:


From Britney Creek:


For all paying PC Membership previous to Magento, you have seen numerous errors with your PC Membership. We have found a resolution for these issues.


You will see an order for your Membership being charged $1 of store credit that you did not make. This is correct. DAZ issued $1 to your account and made an order for your Membership again for you. Once this has been done, you will no longer see any issues with your PC Membership. If until this has been done to your account, you miss any sales, please let us know, we will take care of that for you.


Thank you for your patience.

Okay, I’ve finally seen this go through.


My PC membership was paid up through November of 2013, and now it’s listed as being through June of 2013.


I expect that they will eventually extend my membership (and for anyone else who was pre-paid up far in advance), but I’m just posting about it, to reference back to in case extending memberships gets lost in the shuffle.

the store HAS to have some way to automatically check if someone is in the PC club before it will enable them to use their coupon, correct?  And since you can only use the coupon once and immediately lose the portion you didn’t get, that means the system can track the use of the code by each individual member so it can tell if someone’s already used their coupon that month.
.So then… exactly why is there a need to publish a “special” code every month again?[snip]
Really, it just seems like the whole business of adding the extra step of having to get the code in the newsletter needlessly complicates everything.

My guess is that it’s someone’s bright idea to make sure we read the newsletter. <doh>

 

Replacing an existing paid-for benefit with a less valuable one that is more difficult to use, and then comprehensively messing up the implementation is pretty much an object lesson in how not to do things and how to comprehensively irritate your customer base.

 

And as I’m typing this I can’t help noticing that the new forum software offers fewer options than most of the amateur ones I belong too…

 

I’m increasingly getting the feeling someone very senior at DAZ made some very bad decisions over the website upgrade and is bunkered down refusing to admit how bad things are. The degree of disatisfaction being expressed by long term, absolutely loyal customers is potentially catastrophic, yet we’ve heard nothing from senior management in three weeks. That’s three weeks in which I’ve bought nothing, can’t even be sure the store is showing me new products, can’t be sure I will be charged the right discounted price on the off-chance something does attract me enough to buy, and generally aren’t getting the benefits I pay for as a PC member of long standing. To say I’m not happy is British understatement at its finest.

 

Now extend all of that dissatisfaction across every PC member, and all the store aspects across every customer, and factor in the damage to DAZ as a company…. We deserve to be treated better by DAZ management, and so does DAZ.
