Download IMVU's latest 3d Chat client 511.0 toady and start enjoying shopping together - now available to everyone and with a premium experience for our VIPs!

As you may recall, we introduced Shop Together as a feature which allowed everyone to participate but only VIPs to invite someone to shop with them.

As of today, anyone - VIP or not - can invite someone to shop with them. Simply enter the Shop and click on Shop Together to begin! Get shopping advice from a friend, a partner, a designer, a fashionista, or a future BFF...
Try on clothes and accessories, suggest them to your shopping buddy and enjoy a shopping/gifting spree.

Plus, the much requested feature - access to Wishlists - has been added as well.

In addition, members of our exclusive VIP club get to enjoy an enhanced Shop Together experience. We asked them what they would like to see as improvements to make the current feature better and responded by adding all of their top requests!

The Premium Shop Together experience available to VIPs includes:

--Ability to invite not just one but two people for the shopping trip!
--Ability to shop together for clothes and accessories AND also rooms, furniture, & poses for added fun!
--Ability to set an owned room as backdrop for the Shop Together window

Please ensure both you and your shopping partner(s) are on client version 511.0 or above in order to enjoy the new and improved Shop Together experience.

FAQs:

1] Can a non-VIP member load non-clothing items from their wishlists if they are shopping together with a VIP?

No. Only VIPs can access their entire wishlist while shopping together.

2] Will non-VIPs get ability to test poses in shop with someone or an actor?

No changes are planned in the near future for the current shopping experience. With this release, non-VIPs do get the basic Shop Together feature which was previously available to VIPs only.

Glad to see the improvements. I've been waiting for the pose feature since Beta, lol.

I have a question though, is the wishlist viewing option for everyone? Or is that wrapped up into the Premium one for VIPs?

Umm.....but....if people can just access EVERYTHING in the shop with their friends then won't they just not purchase them?

^ I don't think that will be such a huge problem.

Honestly the only big issue I see with this is some pose creators might lose sales with the added benefit of being able to actually preview them with someone else in shop using their own personal head and body proportions rather than the default/older body scales a lot of the older pose creators still use.

They wouldn't just be buying and hoping it's something they can work with.

Wishlist option is available to everyone but only VIPs will be able to load rooms, furniture etc from their wishlists.

I love how this kicks the creators in the teeth.. why buy anything now.. just invite 2 friends in.. decorate a room and hang out in there all day.

The pose issue could of been handled with giving the users an add an actor

^As the room, poses is VIP only I don't see that happenin.

I think this will encourage to buy cuz we can actually try out stuff to make sure our avi's work with it or it's to our taste. Nothin so frustratin as tryin a pose to find it just looks horried, i.e. hand goes thru chest, with or without scalers. So many ppl now wear scalers it be nice to see if we can work with them before we purchase.

Same for poses on beds, couches or what not, nothin like seein a wonderful piece to find the poses are crap when in couples.

As for the actor yeah I agree maybe that can be a normal avi option one day, the invite a friend for vip only.

As for the creators bein screwed, nawww don't think so, they just have to up their game and put out quality work, this will help weed out the truly crappy ones ppl fall for though.

Will the new features be available for ONLY VIPs, or beta users also?

Let's compare what the try it pass originally let us do... We could try on anything we wanted for 15 seconds, and EVERYONE could see it. Not just one, or two people. Now, you give us this pointless as hell watered down version that as non vip holders only one person can see us. Now, to make things worse, you give it to everyone on top of it which makes the money we invested in the pass useless. I'd like a cash refund right about now for the bait & switch you pulled. It's nice you've given it to everyone, since frankly this is a feature everyone deserves, but you've screwed the people that actually PAID for it in the process.

Also, when do you plan on giving the narrate/emote function to everyone? It's been like a month for the 'vip sneak peak' and I haven't seen any indication you intend on rolling it out to the public. Is this going to be another 'blocks will be available to everyone, the vips are just getting a preview' type deal as per usual with you people?

Finally it has become something that I had expected to be from the beginning. Also glad that it's no longer a VIP only thing. It was not something I would consider a VIP perk to begin with. Personally I think it's a good thing.

But I wonder.. if it will cut down the sales as mentioned by MissSnowy. I can imagine that people with hardly any money will do it like that. But I think they wouldn't have bought it anyway. But those with cash to spend here, will buy it. Otherwise they have to rebuild that particular room over and over again. And fully decorating a room every time?? pfff.. what a work.

For those who considered the shopping-together feature as a replacement for the lost of the VIP bundles will be disappointed too. Even though IMVU has said over and over again that it was NOT a replacement for it.

I'd originally posted this in the pre-release thread, I didn't see this one at first. I'd like to add my support to anyone who owned a Try It pass, as I think this is unfair.

Now the original Shop Together is available to everyone... What about those who paid for the Try It Pass and were allowed to be included in Shop Together when it was released to VIPs as compensation for having a paid feature taken away from them? If this was a good enough reason to include them in the original Shop Together feature when it was VIP only, then that reason is still good enough to include them in this upgrade as well.
