Just to be clear on the coupon codes, you can not use your own. You have to use a code that belongs to another account and buy a minimum of $50, yes is there for both sales and the crew-pon, I just tried it and is working.
Back on topic... with the crew-pon you only get 155k for as before you would get 200k. IMVU you have become too expensive, less people will buy products which means less profits for creators.
I'll have to check on the coupon thing next sale then as some are saying the option works while others are saying the option is not even listed to begin with. I messaged Brett to ask about it so maybe he can clear it up for me.
As for the crewpon deal, if you do the math the deal was not a bad one and I would have bought that one if I was not waiting to get paid on Monday. 155k for $100 (rounded off) is .00064 cents per credit. Once IMVU pays creators .0004 cents per credit, their profit is .00024 cents per credit which is not just a whole lot left to pay their bills with.
200k at the same price is .0005 cents per credit then minus .0004 cents per credit that they pay creators who want to earn cash and now the profit is .0001 cent per credit to pay bills on. Not much to work with at all.
I am by no means happy IMVU got rid of re-sellers or that credits are now going to cost me a bit more, but for IMVU to take on the additional cost of paying creators, they have to turn a profit. The old sales were better deals because IMVU was not paying us...re-sellers were. As a business that needs to turn profit to survive, I don't think I can begrudge them a price of .00064 cents per credit or a .00024 cents profit per credit. Charging any less would be a bad (money loosing) business decision on IMVU's part.
If coupons are working with the crewpon and sales, you can still make a sale into almost the same price as the re-sellers were. Had I had money today, I could have bought 100k for 62.40 - $10 coupon. Final price = $52.40 (my re-seller was $49.99). When I get paid, I am going to put money back and wait for the right sale to come up again. Then stock up. IMVU cannot pay us if we do not support them so they can make income to pay us with. It's a two way street whether we like it or not.
AND FOR THE LOVE OF PETE....IMVU PLEASE REVISE/REMOVE MASA CAPS!! THEY ARE DISCOURAGING CREATION FOR MANY AND NO ONE SHOULD BE AFRAID OF REQUESTING THEIR OWN EARNINGS AND BEING LOCKED OUT OF INCOME FOR 30 DAYS. NO ONE SHOULD BE DREADING HAVING A REALLY GOOD MONTH OF SALES EITHER. THIS IS THE FEAR MASA CAUSES FOR MANY OF THE CREATORS YOU WISH TO 'ENCOURAGE TO GROW' _________________
