I love the e-store.They have many people that buy from it also.What if you didn't want any more plushie?Many people don't wanna stop,so they came up with e-store.E-store is also no rip off.Some stores sale webkinz for 16.00,e-store is 12.00 no matter what. :-/
This debate over the estore has been taking place from day one of its opening. Although it pains me to buy.... I do feed/fuel the estore as they often have the best pets and psis. I do agree though that they need to make their plush pets psis as cute as their virtual pets items.
I think that its ones own choice to buy or not buy from the estore. I don't think the estore is unfair though (aside from the fact that all plush pets should have awesome psis and not the generic ones we sometimes see).
Anyone may purchase from the estore as you can now buy points in stores I believe.
Whatever your feeling are about the estore please remember not to "attack" other members for buying from it. This became a huge problem once with some members telling others that they were stupid or foolish for buying virtual only pets. I hope to never see that again and hope people remember that everyone has different opinions and all opinions should be respected.
Do you happen to know which stores do? I've really been waiting for them to do so...
You do not have to like the E store but it is not fair for you to think we should not have it !I love the E store and would be unhappy if it was not there.Many people like it and we have a right to it if we like. You do not have to buy stuff if you do not want to .I have over 600 plush and am running out of room for them anyway and many people do not have access to stores that carry them and this is how they buy their pets.Some people do not want the plush.I am tired of hearing this . Nobody is forcing you to buy there.There will always be something you can not have in this world . This is life . get over it already !
Well, I like the estore because they are able to come out with some really cool stuff. And since I usually don't play with 99% of my plush, the virutal pets are great because I won't have to find a place to put them in my room.
Although, it does seem like the people who don't like the estore are those who don't have the ability/permission to purchase points online. I really think that they should offer cards in the stores that sell webkinz that will have a code that can be redeemed for estore points. Kinda like how you can buy iTunes cards, or microsoft points cards for xbox live. Having something like that for estore points would give more people a chance to have access to it, whether they purchase online or from a store.
The things I don't like are that the items are non-tradable, and that you don't have more options when buying points.
hmm hmm true, but its still kinda frustrating You do not have to like the E store but it is not fair for you to think we should not have it !I love the E store and would be unhappy if it was not there.Many people like it and we have a right to it if we like.

I'm sorry, too. I guess it's just frustrating having my mom not let my buy from the E-Store, and missing out on all these cool pets and items... (See? It makes us sad too!)
Your right! When I get eStore points I spend them not knowing even COLER pets will come out and my mom won't let me buy anymore! I only got to buy 1 pet because it was my birthstone pet and another because my mom didn't figure out what she knows now!
I see the e-store from both sides. On one hand, it IS pretty awesome. I mean, it's GUARANTIED you will see the pet you want for sale if it was advertised for that day, whereas if you wanted a plush pet, the store might not have it . ( i know it's happened to me a zillion times lol.) You can get awesome clothing and stuff for your house without buying stuff you might not want ( trading cards, pet clothing, stickers, etc.) to get it. On the other hand, you have to know your way around the e-store and have a credit card, so it can be confusing. Plus, it's always like " Buy this now! It will only available for one day!" A working trick to get people to but stuff.
If you don't like the eStore, you don't have to shop there. The eStore is just one more place people can spend money on Webkinz World products. If you don't want to shop there, or aren't allowed to shop there, that's no reason for Ganz to shut it down. I'm certain they're making quite a bit of money selling items on that site. There is no way they are going to close it down because of a few complaints.
