Making Buying Easier at Renderosity
For existing Renderosity members, the changes you'll notice will be very minimal. Our goal here, was to identify the steps needed for a new member to purchase a product and incorporate changes to make this process easier.
The most noticeable change is when a visitor enters the MarketPlace and selects 'Add to Cart' underneath a product, our system will now only require a user to enter his/her chosen username, select a password and enter their email address. Please keep in mind that while this visitor enters the information above, our system will validate whether or not the selected username is available and that the email address hasn't been used to create another account. If you are an existing Renderosity Member and are not logged in at the time you select 'Add to Cart' - you will have an opportunity to select 'Login' within this same window and be directed to our login page.
For those new and existing Renderosity Members, the next thing you'll notice during the checkout process is that 'Step 2' (Shipping Address Confirmation) will be bypassed if their are NO shippable products within the users Shopping Cart. In this case, it removes a needless step in the buying process that will quicken the transaction for the shopper.
You'll also notice that we've added a handful of icons to our Payments page to make understanding what is requested of you more intuitive. If you happen to use PayPal as your method of payment, you'll be happy to know that you will now see a pop-up window (if permitted as part of your individual browser settings) and automatically be re-directed to PayPal to complete your transacation and confirm payment.
We're considering this the first phase of continued improvements to the overall shopping experience at Renderosity. Please stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
shopping procedure very fast without unnecessary clicks(grin),only one thing, might be coincidence but my dl speed is only between +- 15-38 KB/s usually on renderosity servers i have +- 100-200 KB/s,as i said maybe a coincidence. generally this is of course a good move.
Nice, I quite like those changes! (Two buttons less to click? Pure love! :D) Just one question (because that seems to happen quite often to me :D), what happens when the PayPal popup fails to load/redirect? Can we manually restart the paying process (for example with the link to PayPal reposted on an unpaid order's page)?
Yosh, first order with the new system and it's such a different experience - so much more efficient than before! (Yes, I know it's only two clicks - but we internet shoppers are lazy by default... :D) Opera even decided that this may, eventually, with some good will, actually be a popup I want to use. >:)
