Nooooooooooo. I don't like purchasing credits from IMVU directly because I feel they have poor service when it comes to purchases and payments then compared to resellers. I've never had issues purchasing credits from resellers, but I have had many issues when purchasing directly from IMVU. I guess I won't be buying credits anymore after the resellers are gone.

Some reasons why Resellers are better then IMVU:

1) They offer lower prices then IMVU does even during sales

2) Resellers have never blacklisted my debit card. IMVU has.

3) Resellers take at most 15 minutes to review purchases. IMVU takes two days.

When I purchase credits I don't like having to wait two days for my order to be reviewed, I want my purchase to be instant.

Question: Will IMVU consider lowering there prices to match the prices resellers currently offer? People purchase from resellers because they are cheaper and provide far better billing support then does IMVU.

Well I guess I won't be getting credits anymore. This is so stupid! You say it's based on what the community wants but I highly doubt that! Thanks for ruining the shopping experience. The prices from IMVU is too expensive.

I still don't see how this cuts back on stolen/UFI products. I mean, you guys are only checking our catalogs once, we can easily override the product, submit an application for review, then after that we can sell stolen/UFI stuff again. This seems more like a desperate act to get rid of resellers so people only buy your overpriced credits.

Most of the Imvu community buys from resellers. Taking that away will kill the Imvu economy and most likely the website. If you get rid of those then this website will start going downhill, Imvu charges way too much for credits. I can't even buy from Imvu anymore because you blacklisted my debit card and refused to let me fix it. Not to mention buying from Imvu has a delay whereas buying from resellers is instant.

you said all creators where notified of this change. I was never told anything until now.
While Im happy I have to know. Are you going to offer the same amount of payback that the resellers did? will your prices be lowered? because if not then this change is not worth it.

Who saw this day coming? Rolling Eyes

Talk about seriously screwing over the community as a whole.

and seriously .40 on the dollar.. that's a JOKE right?

I do have to thank IMVU sort of for doing this.. it just means that I can spend my money on more important things.

To think I was going to buy 10 room slots and fully decorate those.. well that 300.00 can be used for real life stuff I guess.

So does this mean that all those who sell layouts and display pictures etc will no longer be able to earn anything from that?

If so, you're unjustly messing with a massive part of your market.

Getting rid of resellers is probably the dumbest thing you can do.

I find resellers easier and more adordable. Imvu is beinfgvery greedy here if they can even offer low prices as the resellers this is like a salp in the face. Im a badge creator I adore the resellers makes it easier to badge and more affordable to ....iI dont like this one but at all shouldnt be this way
