I think the other thing that is being ignored.. this has also opened the flood gate even more for the creators to make UFI furniture and rooms.

How so you may ask..

How can you flag stuff when you don't even know it's there?

Why risk an account.. buy that nice UFI product.. it gets hidden in the shop.. no one knows about.. no risk to the consumer or the developer.


I'm pretty sure UFI developers make products to SELL them, so I highly doubt they would be at all interested in customers using there product for free.

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


I actually prefer to chat in my rooms not shop together. Sure, I do shop together but if I find something I like I actually buy it. The ability to put furniture in a shopping room is actually might be a good thing. Rather than just selling one of an item a creator might just end up selling two or even three.

I think you'll find that most people will still prefer chatting in a room vs chatting in a shop. After all, chatting in a shop you may end up distracted and not chatting, but in a room your focus is on the other person. So yeah, shop together rooms is probably just going to be what it is, shopping, not marathon chat.

So I have a question then.. since everyone can use shop now..

And people like to use use the argument of "Well.. we need to be able to try poses. And this will make it easier."

Soooo.. only VIP people buy poses then?

What about everyone else that buys poses.. are they not a contributing member of the community as well?

Edit-

Should everyone be able to try poses at least and furniture.. unless VIP members are the only ones that buy furniture with poses as well.

IF IMVU is going to push people to buy buy buy by having deal after deal after deal.. this is something that I feel should have been offered to everyone.

Not to mention this has been something that has been asked by the community to have at least an actor for shop and instead of that.. like the usual move on IMVU's part.. they take an idea that the community has been asking for and turn it strictly VIP.. when it would be a feature that could benefit everyone.

Not always. The shop window is small, and at best with VIP you can only chat with two people. I highly doubt people will want to hang out in the small shop together window all day (even though it wouldn't cost them) when they can hang in someones nice public room instead (also without spending a dime.)

For me personally, this change will cause me to spend MORE money. I've always been hesitant to buy poses or furniture with poses, because you could never have an idea of how something looks until after you bought it. If you were lucky the pose worked out for you, but if you weren't you were then out the credits you spent.

Of course I don't think everyone will be doing it. But if there is a way to get around paying for something you can bet there will be people who will take advantage.



I don't think it will hurt sales, due to there's not that many mentally incompetent users who will resort to the tactics that you're stating, if it is, the numbers would be infinitely small, especially among VIP's.

If it was offered to all users, I can see noobs pulling something like that or someone too cheap to purchase VIP, so the only thing that will hurt, is loss of sales due to the quality of the products in question and not the reasons that you're stating.


I take it you're a creator an alt account? because its if you arent, how would you even know how its going to effect sales and you wouldnt even begin to understand how creators get so royally screwed on here

SinfulBelle I think the thing that irks me the most..

Users have been asking for something like this so they could buy poses.. to see how they would look and IMVU is like NOPE!!! you're not a VIP.. you have to guess so we'll get our money out of you one way or the other.

This is the same stuff that has happened in the past and it just makes me sick.

This is another stupid idea, to be honest. What's the point of this? This is a useless feature to me.

It's for people to shop with friends compare outfits, get tips, and for those with VIP try out poses and furniture to see if they work, while also being able to look at rooms.

Can't leave out the best part though.. many users have asked for this and IMVU gave it to VIP.. even though this is a feature that would greatly enhance the shopping experience of everyone.

Don't you love how when you're not VIP.. you get treated like a second class citizen?

Well to be fair, we as VIP users pay for the perks we are given (in my case $75 for one year). If you want the special shop together features, then purchase VIP, you can get it for $10/ a month or cheaper depending on how/when you purchase it.

Also - since the normal shop together was a VIP perk, and it now isn't they had to give something to VIP users who have been paying for this feature.

This is my last thought on this subject then I am done other than saying if the shop togehter fix is working or not once I update for it:

I know creators are worried some will set up "home" in shop but tbh, people who do that are not buying from us anyway. They are in public rooms hanging out. For those who seriously can and do invest here, it will INCREASE the amount we buy (which is the majority of users on here).

I do think the under 18 (no offence to anyone) is more likely to do this due to lack of funds to purchase. So, I have a suggestion. Make this an AP & VIP perk for trying poses and furniture and VIP gets the extra perk of invited 2 friends and trying rooms together. I think this would protect the creators as well as boost sales and IMVU's income.

I'm glad about this.

I think it's great for both users and creators, as it will increase sales.

Shop together was given to VIP in lieu of having the monthly gifted room taken away. And yet the monthly cost of VIP did not decrease.

Take into account that when it was offered to VIP it was for clothing only, all of a sudden we can now try furniture, poses etc and we no longer need VIP to shop together.


So, IMVU and especially the CEO who should actually be addressing our concerns. What are paying VIP's going to be given as a replacement for what you so freely take away from us without a reasonable replacement. Big whoopdie do, you finally give something to your clients that have been asking for it for years, sadly the majority lap it up like you are throwing them a bone.

AS far as I am aware I am still VIP, I am STILL paying the same amount as I was previously.

And you wonder why people are leaving IMVU for other chat sites where they are not treated like cash cows and given sweet FA in return for it.


Shame on you IMVU, treat your clients with a sliver of respect.



You totally misread it,you have to be vip to be able to enjoy the features such as try furniture,poses and rooms + invite 2 more people in shop.Non vips gets the old version of shopping together feature.They can't invite more than one person,they cannot try on furnitures,poses,rooms etc...

Please use the latest pre-release 511.2 which has a fix for this issue.

Thank you
