I wouldn't buy them. I agree with MamaDoh. The prices are more than I'm paying now, plus shipping and handling. A place to donate to the site would be okay, and maybe a shop with items to buy in it that you could go to on the site (maybe with WI logo items as suggested above) would be okay. And, as some have mentioned, this may be taking away some of our members business. Just my thoughts.

sorry, i wouldn't buy any, as i don't think im buying anymroe, as i can't afford it with my budget of 30 dollars a wekks from babysitting. i can t even buy any from stores here! sorry1 i hope we can figure out a solution!

as, for what luvmyfamily said, you can't do that, many people here are kids as well as adults, and im sure my parents wouldn't let me pay something for this site. yes, i agree it is a very good site, but it would not, in my opinion, be worth a charge. i love trading and all the houes and stuff, but i jsut couldn't pay for this site. im sorry,andi know this doesn't really help. but i feel making people pay for use of the site would not only turn away new members, but make loyal members, leave the site. sorry for all of this unhappy thougths, but it is my opinoin. thanks. **9pe you figure something out. thanks

At $500/month you are talking $6000 per year. That would be less than $1 per person to use the site and no need to sell webkinz. A small donation or fee seems much easier or either ask each member to click on "x" number of ads per day since those will pay the site per click.

Hi Justin

I think that having the store option is a fabulous idea! And definately worth the consideration. The pricing is good and shipping costs would be the only issue. However, that won't matter when I really, really want that black cat or reindeer and want to be sure I get one when they come out! I say go for it! Buying online is sometimes much more convenient. And we all want this forum to stay! I'm definately IN on buying some from you online!

I have 5 shops within a mile of my house that sell Webkinz, the only time I would need to pay more than $11.00 plus shipping is if there is another strike or shortage.

I am a big time TY Beanie Baby collector and belong to a lot of sites like yours, one site had set up paypal to take donations from its users. The donations don't have to be a hugh amount, if every user put in a $1.00 to $2.00 a month or every other month you would have your fees. I know some are children, maybe their parents would let them mail you a donation of any amount they can send. this is one option.

The other option is one similiar to the poll but just charge merchants to advertise on the site for a fee with no strings such as your members buying from them.

Have you given thought to a Msn group?

I hope it works out.

That is a great idea, one suggestion which you don't HAVE to use. Not many people will buy lil'kinz, because most retailers sell them for about 7 or 8 dollars. Webkinz will sell good though, I think they are well priced!

It would be cool if they had some that weren't available where I am, but, There are 3 halmarks within a 5-10 minute drive from my house, and you guessed it, they're all cheaper. I understand that there needs to be money made though.....

I just can't think of any that don't involve copyright infringement.

Ooh. Good one! An address to mail $ to would be better for a lot of people who don't like giving online.

Default Re: WebkinzInsider needs your honest opinion!

I voted maybe for two reasons. 1) Having 23 webkinz already, it would depend on which one WI has available and 2) Shipping costs would of course factor in.

I do think this is a good idea though!
