Default Re: New Shopify Store!

Not quite the same experience buying GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Denizens: Thieves here. The download link in the e-mail worked - though I got a "We can’t connect to the server at" error first and then the "You have three downloads remaining" threw me off (it's only there because apparently I am not logged in a minute after buying.

What's really annoying though is that the new shop let me easily buy two copies without any sort of warning. I guess because I was not at first logged in and it still saved my cart or maybe something more went wrong. While I do not begrudge SJGames and Christopher Rice the money, this really not the way a shop system should work. It's not even like I can gift the extra "copy" to someone. The old shop did have a much better way of warning you. Sure, caveat emptor, but I am disappointed.

Edit: Even finding the book for sale would have been a huge hassle without the link provided. It does not appear under "New Release" even when sorting from New => Old (why is this not standard by the way? I don't want featured stuff when clicking on new and SJGames doesn't actually have dozens of new things every month). It does not even appear in GURPS when sorting New => Old and not even in GURPS Dungeon Fantasy (at all). I really don't get how that is possible, but I've heard bad things about Shopify, so maybe this is the software - still quite a bad UI. The only thing that works is the title search, as far as I can tell.
