Sometime later this month we will be launching our next product release. As many of you know, one of the major focus areas for the year is on overall site simpification, and this release will be no exception. We are completely revamping the entire buy/sell flow process, and the end result should make things simpler, more intuitive and faster especially for sellers. As part of this change we are also unifying the buy and sell experience for stores and non-stores, i.e. the UI experience will be nearly identical whether or not you are buying/selling from a store or non-store. If you are currently a store owner, you will still retain all the functions you curently have, although some of them may move out of the "store" area onto other sections of MyWigix. And if you are a seller but not a store owner you will have access to a few functions that were previously only available to store owners.
There is one additional key change worth mentioning...Right now if you a store owner and logon to Wigix, when you go into MyWigix you have the ability to manage both your store inventory as well as your personal (non-store) portfolio. One of the reasons we did this is because we felt that some store owners would want to have a clear separation between items they were selling within their stores and items within their personal porfolios. However, this ended up generating confusion amongst some store owners, so we've decided to get rid of that separation and collapse the two together. So, if you happen to be a store owner, all of your items, store and non-store, will be combined into one Wigix portfolio. We think this should be acceptable to most of you, but going forward if you think you still need to keep your "personal" Wigix separate from your store then the best solution is to create a 2nd id for managing all your personal stuff.
I hope the above makes sense, and I look forward to your feedback after we launch these changes.
