Now that the World Cup is over and Germany didn’t win, we can all get back to real-life. Somehow, we found time to install a major update in the middle of June, but we didn’t make a big deal about it on the English site at the time. Now we’re ready, so I’m going to go over some of the stuff we changed over the next few blog posts.
The first and perhaps most noticeable change is the addition of the “Instant Buy” option. Over the years we’ve had many buyers ask us if they could just buy a single photo and not deal with credits. We tried to tell them that buying credits would make it cheaper, and once you buy one Photocase photo you’ll undoubtedly buy more because our photos are amazing. While buyers agreed that our photos are kick-ass, they really weren’t interested in starting a relationship with us (even though we’re attractive and good listeners), they just wanted to buy a photo. So we listened (because we’re good listeners) and as of late June 2010, buyers can now browse, find and buy without registering. Hassle free! There is a slight catch though, prices for Instant Buy photos are a little higher than you’d pay with credits, but don’t worry the Instant Buy prices are still very affordable.
