So what does this mean? In a nutshell, this means you will be able to purchase ALL of the Daily Textures - both individually and the special collections - all from one convenient location.
There are some changes as a result, however. The two major changes are:
1) Individual textures have had a price increase due to the increased processing fees I am having to pay. Reliability and security are expensive, unfortunately. The individual Daily Textures have increased in price from $2.00 to $2.50 each due to a per transaction cost I incur which is considerably higher than the old website.
However, this transaction fee becomes more manageable when several textures are purchased at once. We have made two coupons available on the website which will be available at all times. When you spend $20 or more, you will receive a 20% discount when using code: DT2020. When you purchase $40 or more, you will receive a 40% discount when using code: DT4040.
Basically this translates to this: when you purchase 8 or more textures at one time, you are paying the same price per texture as you were before. When you purchase 16 or more textures at one time, you are paying LESS per texture than you were. Be sure to enter the code in the appropriate box at checkout and click APPLY, as the discount is not automatic...you have to enter the code and click apply to receive the discount.
2) The second major change is our order system on this new website does not accept Paypal. I know many people like to pay with their Paypal funds. This can still be done using a Paypal debit card or a prepaid Paypal Mastercard if you have them, but the system will not access Paypal directly. All major credit cards, corporate cards and prepaid visa/mastercards are accepted via our new order system.
As for the old website, it is paid through another year, and I will leave the current textures on there for the current price as long as I can. At this point, with all of their problems, I cannot guarantee reliability and am unsure if it will remain available for the balance of the year. No new textures will be added to that website. No new blog posts will be added to this blog, either. I have set up a new blog on the new site which I will begin posting to by tomorrow.
After working with the new site from the back-end of things, and after having several people test the order system over the past couple of months, I feel quite sure you will enjoy it. I can more readily offer sales and discounts, and I can also offer the texture bundles which I could not do at the old website.
On the new site, I am also introducing a free texture of the week. The texture is featured on the front page, and you're invited to grab it and add it to your collection. Each week there will be a new free texture featured! This gives you a chance to try our ordering/download system if you haven't tried it already, and you can see just how easy and convenient it is. You do not have to enter a credit card to get the free texture of the week.
I'll leave this blog up, but just be forewarned when the old site goes down, the links from this blog to it will not work. If you're looking for a specific texture, however, the new site has a handy search box at the top of the page - just put in the name of the texture to find it quickly.
Thank you all for your patience as I've worked out things with the Daily Texture and I hope you'll enjoy the new website and the new blog.
