I find that there are several features I miss from the old store:

1. Ability to be warned when I’ve already purchased content.
2. Ability to see add-ons to a product.
3. Ability to search (or see all) of the itemized order history. This is particularly annoying when one has gotten back from vacation and have month old email about a product having been updated.

Product pages do not display the date the sale price ends.

When you return to the store from a product page, products are rearranged in a different order.

5. Related Products

I’m confused about the display order of products.

If I visit the daz main store page on my desktop, the items are arranged by order of release (I’m assuming), but on my laptop, those same items on the same page are in a different order.

Is it random?

The one for me is the Best Seller filter.
I hate sifting through a hundred pages of mediocre releases to get to the good stuff.  (Yes, of course there some hidden gems I’m probably missing, but it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make raspberry )
There a couple of 3D stores that don’t have a best seller filter.  I don’t shop there because it just takes too much time to find the good stuff..  smile

Another one I miss is the Free Items page, or are they not going to offer a freebie anymore? The items that were free in the old store have prices on them now.

I’m in agreement with most of the above plus:


The wishlist category titles are not interactive anymore  |  click on one and it would list per its description (Product Name, Added On, etc). They should have a sort ability like on the products listing pages.

Product imagery only previews through a pop-up modal  |  I liked the older ability of looking through the imagery on the side of the main preview image and seeing it quicker in the preview window. Now, it takes longer to preview the different images only via the new modal, especially if you’re doing it from a mobile device.

Shop by “Sale” or show only sale items was removed  |  This was very helpful for us bargain hunters. 


I’m surprised with all the new abilities of coding sites, they didn’t venture into creating “responsive” versions for mobile and tablet devices. I peruse the shop via my smartphone all the time. I’m hoping they go down that user-friendly path.

Every other store tells you when a sale ends.  This is a biggy for me.  It’s almost like this is a push to “Buy it now!”

Are there going to be Freebies again? That was one of the things that made my $7.98 PC Membershipo worthwhile.

Aside from those already mentioned the one thing that’s really bugging me is I can’t tell what the product is for (i.e. gensis, v4, etc…) at a single glance, instead you have to go rummaging for the information in the Additional Tab. This might be much of a problem if it’s something like a vehicle or a bit of architecture but when it’s stuff for a figure it’s just one additional step that is uneeded (if it’s for genesis then I’m not interested in it, can’t use it in Poser, without firing up DS and farting around with that at any rate).

As a designer you don’t change things for the sake of change as the saying goes if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Slapping in those tabs may look nice but by the gods they are annoying to use (though I quite like the additions such as spell check, though I use a firefox plug in at home for that sort of thing, and character count when posting though).

I am annoyed by:
  popup preview images over main page
  non-working “Required Products” section (i cannot believe that “Supersuit Troopers” may require “Aiko 3.0 Morphs and Maps”)
  really stupid section “You may also like” between product shot and its description (moreover, i never liked “you may also like” products but often looked through “related” ones)
  that it is impossible to see whole description of the product including additional info and includings and features at once.

BTW, did you kill fastgrabs?

The new store’s lack of features is raising my sales resistence; which is helping me stay well below my monthly purchase budge.

I miss having the ability to right click on an image and be able to download the LARGE product image for my database of purchased products. Often I would select one of the alternative images as the one I wanted to use for my personal database reference image files.

Hi someguys please teach me, is it right?

I check supersuit fantasy pack .
Everytime I frastrated about “required products”.
Because It do not tell me exactly what I am repuired .
I need A only, or B only, or I can not use the products without A and B.

So If there is somemistake in store expression, I do not care so.

But, why “Supersuit Fantasy Pack” needs “Carara 8 upgrade”?
Is it true or not?

If you reload the page, you will likely get a different (random) ‘Required Products’.  In another thread, someone suggested turning this into a game, Random Requirement Render Roulette.  Choose a product, go to its product page, and roll a requirement until you get one you own, then do a render with both products.

Ya gotta laugh to keep from crying.
