Dream Pod 9 Online Store
We've just upgraded Dream Pod 9's Online Store! We've been working on this for a few months and we hope you find the new store easier to use.
The new store offers improved security and reliability over the old store software, but we're more excited about features to make it easier to find specific products and features that reward our customers.
One new feature is Pod Reward Points: With the new online store, you will receive Customer Loyalty Reward Points for items purchased to us on your next orders. As a guideline, you will receive 1 point for every $5 to $10 of an item's value, items under $5 don't receive reward points. An order for a $23 blister would give 2 reward points and an order for a $25 blister would give 3 reward points.
Register Now for Bonus Reward Points!
Everyone will need to create new accounts on the online store as the old software was not compatible for transferring the account data. From now until the morning of December 31st, 2013, we'll be giving everyone that creates a new account 5 bonus reward points instantly that they can use right away on their first order, to lower its cost by $5.00 using the points.
Finding items should be easier with the new layout. Items may have several tabs next to the Description for Specifications, Reviews, and Related Items. We'll be adding Specifications as catalog items are reviewed to provide more information about the size, materials, and other details of our products. We can use this feature to make it clear if an item is resin, metal, or a mix of the two. These details can be used on the Compare feature. The Reviews tab contains user-contributed reviews. A Related Items tab contains links to other products that are similar or complementary to the item you're viewing.
Also, it's easier for us to add additional images to products. We're still adding information to make these new features as usable as possible. More details will get entered as we review each item for sale in the store and add new items.
Jovian Chronicles Miniatures Available Again for One Month Only!
We have taken the Jovian Chronicles miniature molds out of storage and they are back for One month of casting. They will be available to order until the end of December 2013, after that they removed from sale again and put back in to storage for another six months, to be back again in June 2014. Also, we found the Dragonstriker exo armor masters and have made a new production mold for the miniature which is now available again to order for the first time in over 10 years.
For fans of our Heavy Gear Fleet Scale and Gear Krieg miniatures that were removed from sale earlier in 2013, we want you to know that they are only on a production hiatus. These older miniatures have lots of molds that need to be run just to make one miniature blister for smaller orders, which is not cost effective. Making them available for only one month at a time, consolidates all the smaller orders and makes them profitable again. We are planning on bring back the Heavy Gear Fleet Scale miniatures in January 2014 for one month and then the Gear Krieg miniatures in February 2014 for one month. After the month of sales they each will retire for six months before that are available again.
