The numbers are scewed no matter which order list you look at.  If you have an order that had multiple items, then you will see each of those items listed with the same order number.  The non itemized list shows all orders including the ones that were closed due to returns so that throws off those numbers as well.  So it looks like you made more order then you did.  But you cannot count on the itemized list to give you an acurate total of items bought either cause it does not break up the bundles for us.  Looking at my itemized list, I have the V4.2 Complete and the V4 Demoness bundles.  But that is all it lists for both.  It does not break it down into the individual items in any way. 


My itemized list shows 1189 while the non itemized shows 781

Mattymanx points out great points.  Very hard to get a ‘real count’.

My history shows 2446 items.  BUT>>>

I have a spreadsheet I use to help be determine if I have bought something, particularly in a bundle that’s listed as one line item in the history.  I have broken out all the bundled items as line items.  The spreadsheet has 3393 lines.  BUT from that I have to remove the lines that identify the bundles and the occasional duplicate that still shows up usually because I bought an item that later shows up in a bundle that was too good a deal to turn down even with the dupe.  (And 2 lines of ‘headers’).  And in the list are versions of Studio, Bryce and Hexagon.

If I say that the above represents 5% or so of the total lines, I still end up with over 3100 items from DAZ since 2005.  As to the actual costs?  I shudder to think about.  Though keeping in mind the sale prices, the freebies,the fast grabs and such, I have convinced myself it’s not that much.

That’s my story, I’m sticking to it, don’t even think about trying to change my mind with any facts or statistics.

509 items in bundled items, according to Bundle Manager (which no longer runs, after site changes).

By counting saved product pages - at least 82 bundles. (I probably missed sorting some out).


I don’t want to see the total cost either, though a database expert could probably pull it from Orca’s scripts (which haven’t been functional for a while).

Almost everything was on sale. I’m seeing a bunch of $1.99 bundles & items. 88-cent items my first October. Vaults. Freebies. Fast Grab. Vouchers.


Almost all of my returns are from before I learned to simply ask for the price difference.

I’d buy them at the lower price, and return. Which cleared one of the duplicates from the list, if I recall correctly.


There were 2 or 3 returns for items that I discovered I’d got in bundles. (I’ve come up with ways to avoid that).

I returned a pair of shoes, and something else, to get my bank balance back up, during a sale. But I ended up getting the something-else later.

I returned 2 items, after I found out they were for Vue. I also returned a few for store credit, during ruinous sales.

Those returns did stay on the list, as I recall. (Those returns did some weird things to order pages - which were already weird).


I still value the return system enormously, tho’ I see, now, that I almost-never use it. When you need it, you need it.

I still get a twinge when I think about when I could’ve used that policy, during some really tight times, at Rendo and RDNA.

There were a couple of things I’d already bought in bundles, at Rendo. But they’d given me a couple of breaks, already, when they could’ve stood on the rule book. {One was a few-seconds-late coupon, when I was a newb, and screwed up the first attempt, and cancelled}. So I didn’t want to push it.

I bought some items at RDNA, in a last-second hurry, having overlooked a bundle. Of course, RDNA extended that sale, so there hadn’t actually been a reason for haste… (It my first year when everyone had competing Christmas sales, and I didn’t have much time to shop).

176 by the itemised count since Nov last year, and that is me attempting to be very strict with what I buy. I feel silly buying a lot of old Gen 4 an 3 stuff now that I know more about the auto-fit tool (and almost never use the older figures). One day I’ll get around to doing something better than half-arsed re-rigs.

“Just” 557 in my itemized list ....several are bundles. Not too bad for being here since 2004, but more than I thought I’d bought. To make myself feel better, I just focus on the idea that a lot of them were voucher purchases ..... really they were…that’s it, they were voucher purchases red face.

Dusty, let me shake your hand. I can only hope that my little digital addiction (in terms of spending at least) drops off and I can be in a similar position in 8 years. I signed up for this expecting I was going to be doing a lot more modelling, and a lot less buying pre-made pretties.

According to the listed number 4365 items purchased on the history list some of which are bundles with numerous items and that doesn’t include purchases elsewhere. No wonder I am in debt. BTW this is only at DAZ

OKAY, this was an interesting read. I’ve got MANY bundles so I’m sure my count is much higher than my Account shows. My Number is only 590 in my four years. I’ve been very tame it seems.

I’m clearly not a big DAZ spender; only 355 orders and 621 items. What was more interesting was the way my DAZ spending has dropped off since the end of February or beginning of March this year. Was that when the new site came along? Genesis and my dropping out of the Platinum Club probably had something to do with it, but I think the new site has been the main driver. It always logs me out, so I have to log in if I’m to buy something…

I’m sooo confused…  I’ve come to grasp a little of the nature of reality and the answer to life, the universe, and everything.  I even have an inkling as to who and what I am. Auuummmmm…
But please, please, who the hell are you?  And why are you trampling my roses?
