Welcome to the new PainfulPleasures.com! We've worked hard for over two years to move our website onto a new platform to improve your shopping experience, and yesterday we finally rolled it out! What kind of enhancements can you expect when you shop with us now? Here are just a few of the benefits our new site offers:
- When you 1st go to www.painfulpleasures.com, you're invited to choose the best store for you: Retail, Wholesale or Distributor. What's the difference?
~ Retail: Anyone can shop our Retail store!
~ Wholesale: Artists and shop owners spending $100 or more on supplies can shop our Wholesale store to take advantage of specially-reduced pricing just for industry professionals.
~ Distributor: Shops spending $500 or more on supplies can shop our Distributor store to take advantage of the best prices we offer industry professionals.
- We now offer better shipping options with more accurate shipping quotes than we were able to offer through our old platform.
- The amazing back-end system that powers our new website allows us to process your orders and get them to you faster than ever before!
- Have a store credit or gift code associated with your account? You can now select either or both as payment options in checkout.
- If you have multiple shops you need to ship supplies to separately or like to mail holiday and birthday gifts to the same addresses year after year, you no longer have to enter those addresses every time you have orders shipped to them. You can now store them in an address book! Then, when you order, just choose your preferred shipping address from a convenient drop-down menu in checkout.
- Need to see your order history from before the switch? No problem! We've added an "Old Orders" option to the left-hand menu in the "My Account" section, as shown in the screenshot below, so you have full access to your order history.
- From the "My Account" section, you can also:
~ Update your account information
~ Expand or modify your address book
~ View your wish list
~ See info about items you've returned
~ Much more!
- Our Gallery and Forum are better than ever, too! Artists can utilize the gallery to post pictures from their portfolios, and we invite everyone to share photos of their mods there. In the forum, you can post your piercing, tattoo or other body mod questions and get responses from our knowledgeable moderators and other community members, do research before getting a new mod, or just share stories about your adventures in body modification.
These are just a few of the awesome new features you'll find at PainfulPleasures.com, and we'll be making even more in the coming months. Here's a sneak peek of what to expect next:
- Special deals on entire product categories and other special discounts that our new system accommodates
- A new category structure that will make it easier to explore the 10,000+ products we offer
- Better-than-ever inventory with tighter stock control and an ever-expanding selection of top-quality products at some of the best prices you'll find online
- An enhanced search tool that will help you find what you need quickly and easily when you're looking for a specific product or product type
- A growing content base filled with useful tips on everything from jewelry care to piercing aftercare and beyond
- Much, much more!
