Hmm, the e-store page about adding points directly into a WW account still says Family Deluxe has been retired.

Hi SG I wrote to them for an update last week, and they are still sending out the auto-response email to questions about FD. No progress yet. Still hoping ♥mJb

*Sighs* Well, whatever they try, I'm still not buying E-Store.

I do feel they're trying to put too much focus on it. Plus, I wouldn't want my kids, if I had any, to be confronted with the Estore all the time.

That's Ganz's intent. Over a very short period of time they have been making the E-store more and more prominent, going from occasional ads, to constant mention of items in the What's New section, to putting E-store items in the background of the Pet-of-the-Month videos, to actually advertising E-store items in the words of the Pig's song, and finally to encouraging E-store access from WW.

What is ironic is that when I first began playing in WW (pre E-Store), WW had just been named top children's site because of it's safe environment and because it was one of the few children's sites that did not push products or offer access to more areas for an additional price. Purchase of one plush gave you access to everything. In two years Ganz has gone a long way in the wrong direction. Activities in WW are still creative and fun, but the constant pushing of products to the children is a downer.

I don't like how they are using the kids to get the adults to spend money in there....

Sorry, guys, to be so negative. ♥mJb
I so agree with you likmfurry and myJbees, I find this whole e-store thing discouraging and ruining what this site was originally supposed to be about.....a fun place for kids to learn and play without feeling pressured to spend more and more money. It really is sad what it has become. I long for the webkinz world we knew and loved in 2007-2008. So many changes and sadly not for the better.

I absolutely love this!! Love it, love it, love it!!

I just made a small purchase from my account to test the new eStore feature. It was very easy and very quick. The item was simply added to my dock -- no need to type in a long number at the Code Shop.

Funny how whenever Ganz actually does something right -- like this new convenience to buy eStore items or the terrific Mazin' Hamster section -- there is always a small vocal group of people who find some negative comments to make about it.

Sorry Burt, but what might be right for you, does not mean it's negative, because someone else doesn't like it. Difference of opinions, is what makes the WORLD go round.

Since there's no connection between your Ganz store account and your Webkinz account, you have to let Ganz know which WW account to transfer your points to. Here's a link that explains how to get your eStore points to show up on your WW account:

I have no points in my Webkinz eStore account. Why? – Webkinz Newz – Webkinz Information
