Buy-out? Can we?

Buy-out? Can we?

Owl Identified Owl Identified
So a little while ago we all collectively figured out that lingerie is no longer available for free review thanks to Lauren. But now I'm wondering...since the "grab it" button isn't working on lingerie, does this mean we can't do a buy out? The only way to generate a buy-out discount (as far as I know) is to "grab" and item and then add it to your regular cart from your assignment cart.

Am I mistaken, or can we no longer get the 30% discount for a buy-out on lingerie items? Thanks to anyone that can help answer this!

I recently did a buy out assignment for a lace petticoat, and found I couldn't grab it. I simply went into the product search under the Reviews section in my dashboard, and searched for the product name. Just click request product for review, and it will put it in your assignment cart. From there, you can request a buy-out assignment. Worked just fine for me, and as far as I know it's not cheating the system as I received it and haven't heard anything from the admin about it. Hopefully that helps!

I don't know about lingerie in general, and "that lingerie is no longer available for free review" is news to me.

However, the way that I would do a buy-out is different from how you've proposed. Here's what I do:

-Go to Product Search.
-Select Lingerie from the drop-down category menu.
-Click the button "Request product for review" next to the lingerie item you want
-The page refreshes and changes the button to a link that says "submit request in assignment cart"
-Click on that link to go to your assignment cart, where the product should now be listed.
-Click the button "Request product for review"
-Select "Buy-Out" from the options given.

Note: I haven't actually submitted a request for a buy-out on lingerie, so I don't know what happens when you click the buy-out option and then click "OK" or "Request" or whatever the affirmative button says. But that's how I'd do it instead of grabbing the item. I hope that helps. ^_^

(Edit: Jesibel420 posted just a bit before I did, so I'm glad to hear that this works!)

I'm pretty sure you can still do free assignments on lingerie, when I do a product search for free assignments tons of it shows up. I can always add it to my assignment cart through there.

A lot of the time (if not always) Gary will turn down those assignments if you request them. (At least, if the "no free lingerie" thing is true. The system still sees them as okay, but if they aren't, then admin can say no.

As a sidenote, I'm not really sure if this "grab button" problem is actually because of the lingerie. I really think it's a flaw with the site itself - a mess up in coding. Especially when you consider I can't grab anything on the site - not just lingerie.

Something else that was posted that works: You can actually just "drag" the grab button up into your browser's tabs (On Firefow, at least) and it will load the page for you. That's how I've been adding to my assignment card to write reviews.

@Jesibel420 and Rockin' with a Cock in. Thank you! I was wondering about this myself. You may have saved Christmas

I'm inclined to agree that there is some kind of a glitch, because I was unable to grab a candle and a massage lotion today, so there's gotta be *something* going on.

Yes I have been having issues with the grab button as well. I always have to right click and open in a new tab in order for an item to go to my assignment cart. Then I can't choose color/flavors. I think I'm going to use the product search thing.

Why did you think it was because of Lauren? Did she snatch it all up? Lol

I am also having issues with some other products besides lingerie (sensual products, mostly) but dildos, vibrators and all that jazz are still working for me in terms of the grab button. I'll have to remember to bump this topic up on Monday so that an administrator can weigh in. Usually a glitch like that doesn't go unnoticed for too long around here, the tech team is pretty on top of things. I'd be surprised if it was unintentional, but usually this kind of stuff is announced? So I don't know, I'm confused I guess.

In any case, I'm glad to know that buy-outs are still working! The suggestion from the beginning of this thread seems to work well.

I've found random things around the site that resist grabbing, but can be forced via the search page, and they go through fine as buy-outs. I haven't tried asking for one of those for free yet, and I don't use lingerie, though.

Yeah...the only way to choose colors is to do through product search. It's inconvenient and I'm hoping it gets fixed, but once you figure it out it only takes a little more time.

I actually have a random question, sort of related to this, but didn't want to start a whole new thread for it..


Do we have to pay shipping with buy-out assignments?

Gary told me in the same message that answered the first question, that yes they are still available.

If the button does not work you have to add it the round about way.

LOL no she worded that weirdly. I was actually going to give her a hard time for it. JK! She meant she found out because of me. HAHA

Good question! I believe we do. I recall having to do so.
