Wacky Prices

Is anyone else noticing base prices have changed? And not with .95 prices; endings in .12 and other crazy amounts.

Hi,

Actually, what you’ve noticed is that we are now showing non-rounded prices for those who chose our Custom Logo Upgrade or Premium Paper options. We used to round prices up or down to .95 because, well, they looked better and stayed in line with our base prices. This rounding confused customers enough so we choose to no longer round the total price after one of these options has been selected. Books ordered with these options now reflect the exact price of the options and have decreased or increased by pennies.

Base prices have maintained their .95 price points.

Hope that clears things up.

Thank you for the explanation.

 

Did I miss the announcement or did no one at Blurb think we would notice?

Blurb did send me an email to this effect a few days ago.
