The G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club sent out the following email today to its members:
“Dear G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club Member,
We have been working diligently to get a replacement store online for you. This is still in progress. However, we are ANTICIPATING that a temporary solution will be available later today (Friday). This is a totallly new website, with totally new software, at a totallly new provider. This commercial software has hundreds of stores and is fully PCI and PCI DSS complient. Their facility has been described to me as a military grade security facility.
Do not go to the old store site. I will provide you with the new url for this system in a later email and we will change the links at that time.
In addition, we have figured out a way to extend this month’s deadline for a few days (because of the new software). We are extending the deadliine date to Wednesday, March 21st, at 5pm central time in order for all of the mail that is enroute to arrive.
However, this will effect EVERYONE’S monthly magazine. The April issues will be approximately 7-10 days late.
Also, we will not be able to reinburse anyone who spent money on expediting renewals to us.
We again apologize to everyone for all of the issues we have been having. We think that you will be very pleased with the new features this store will offer you.
So, good news! Sounds like the new store software is imminent and folks who are scrambling to get payment in for subscription updates have a few more days as well. Here’s hoping this is the beginning of a nice upswing for the Collectors’ Club and Fun Publications.
