Pricing Change

Well after a year of free kits, we've come to the conclusion it's time to change our pricing policy.

Until this point, all kits have been 99L but could be acquired free with group membership in world.  
This was for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to using many of you as guinea pigs! ;)
It was a great way to get you folks to try a untested product from a untested brand. And with the number of hickups along the way... it's saved me some angry customers. (After all, who gets angry about something they got for free?)

While I'm always trying to improve things, and am constantly tinkering, I think it's safe to say now the "beta" period is over. Omega has been thoroughly tested and established. You all know who I am and what I do and you know if something breaks, I fix it. I may have to stare at it for awhile...but it gets fixed. 

So whats next? I have many lovely things I'd love to do for you folks. Wardrobes, Nail organizers, RLV solutions, 3rd party custom applier solutions....more how-to videos and information, but it's difficult to do these things when most of my day is eaten up helping customers. 

Obviously I can't... NOT do customer service...that would be madness. So the goal has to be to cut down on customer service issues by streamlining the system as much as possible.  Marketplace, delivery/unboxing, installation...all are points in which someone might get confused and need know what skips all of these steps? Pre-Installation!

Bodys like Uluckie, Signature, Perfect, Tonic, ect never have issues because there's no installation to get confused about, no updates to keep track of and no MP/Vendor to lag out or figure out. There's never a out-of-date script or delivery server on the fritz!

So why can't I just move everyone to Pre-Installation? Well because it's the mesh makers choice, and the only choice that isn't free for them.  Mesh Makers get a choice between a Pre-Installed Kit that costs them a small amount off each sale or a plug-in/relay/standard kit that is free for them but 99L for the customer unless they come inworld and get it as a group gift. The result is that most opt for the Plug-in or Relay.   When the kits are free indefinitely, it doesn't seem like a great value to pay for something that customers can get for free, even when most don't.  

So starting June 1st, kits will have a group discount for the first year a kit is available.  This means the oldest kits on the walls, Wowmeh, Petites and Immortals will lose their group discount June 1st.
Kittys Lair, Y-Baby, Manouas Muscles, ND/MD, Jiggle Booty,  Minikin, L'Uomo will all lose their discounts during the month of June.

We're already starting to see more mesh makers opt for Pre-Installed, but we're hoping this will raise the number further. This will also allow us to occasionally have sales and discounts at events (hard to discount free)

Depending on reactions we may or may not reduce this group-discount period further, but if we do it will not be sudden or without notice.   Still, we recommend picking up any kits you think you may need before then.
