If this doesn’t convince Wagglepop sellers that they’re being had, I don’t know what will.
Amidst a mutiny by sellers, and seemingly at no other options by “management”, Ray Romeo (as Andrew Pittino) somehow, SOMEHOW, found a way to not DOUBLE sellers’ monthly fees for having a store at Wagglepop.
Days of last minute “management meetings” regarding the unfortunate necessity of doubling these fees and Ray’s, I mean Andrew’s, stragegic dynamic of marketing skills, have resulted in a “win win” for Wagglepop and it’s sellers.
No longer will Ray be forced to edit the monthly fee field in Rscript from 29.95 to 59.95. He will simply have to change it to 39.95, a 10 dollar increase. Phew. I was thinking Ray would never be able to figure that out. In addition, sellers with mutliple stores (why would they want to even have one, nobody can guess), will have to pay some discounted price for them, rather than have them for free, as part of their 59.95 monthly plan.
I think Ray, I mean Andrew, was just trying to prevent any abuse from sellers that would all share one WP account, and each have different stores, all splitting the $59.95 monthly fee, but I digress. Somehow… SOMEHOW, Ray found a way, although he had solemly admitted that there really was NO OTHER WAY.
Anyway, although “Andrew” is ALREADY an owner of Wagglepop (with a nom de plume of Ray Romeo), Andrew also makes an announcement that he is now also part owner of Wagglepop! Maybe he’ll eventually announce that he’s also changed his name from Andrew Pittino to Ray Romeo, so that he can say he never actually LIED to his sellers, under Wagglepop’s “revolutionary” “trust based system”.
And by the way, the last forum thread about the fees jumping to $59.95 have been replaced with the new thread and the 39.95 price. Although no mention of this price increase, which happens in less than a week, is posted on the announcements page, last updated December 2008.
Anyway, the announcement is after the jump, both the 39.95 announcement (new) and the 59.95 announcement (old), including some of the wailing and gnashing of teeth by sellers.
