<![CDATA[Instant Downloads!]]> http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postinstant-downloads http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postinstant-downloads Fri, 22 Feb 2013 00:00:00 GMT We are excited to announce the availability of L&L Publishing’s World’s Greatest Magic line via Instant Download! You can now instantly stream these videos upon purchase and even download them to your desktop for offline viewing! And the best part? The downloads are only $14.95 each - that's $5.00 less than the physical DVD! 

We are now able to present downloadable products, including videos, at When You Wish Magic, providing Instant magic instruction. We've updated our streaming-only videos  with a downloadable feature, so you watch your magic videos offline. (It takes some time to process these videos for downloads, so you can still stream them instantly.)

We've also moved your downloadable orders into your profile when you log in, as well your magic wish list (which you can now send a link to friends!).

Explore our new site at http://www.whenyouwishmagic.com/ and look for the Instant Download icons!

What does that mean to you? Well, a slightly faster site with more products, and more types of products! We already added gift certificates, and we updated the wishlist program to be shared with your friends, so you can keep track of your most desired magic products.

<![CDATA[We moved servers!]]> http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postwe-moved-servers http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postwe-moved-servers Mon, 14 Nov 2011 00:00:00 GMT Over the weekend, we moved our website to a new server. Minus a few standard hiccups with transfering files, we moved without breaking the site. This move should help keep our site up and humming along to provide the best online magic store we can provide!

 

Thanks for all your support,

Tony

<![CDATA[New Video Format!]]> http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postnew-video-format http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postnew-video-format Thu, 20 Oct 2011 00:00:00 GMT We've updated our website once again, now our demo video player is in html5, playing mp4 formatted videos. What does that mean? It means you can view most all the site now on a modern browser or mobile device, like the iPhone, iPad or Android tablet. (Don't worry if you haven't updated your browser just yet, there is a backup Flash player.) But this effectively takes most of the wvm formatted videos off the site so you can share more of When You Wish Products to your Internet friends and aquaintances. (If you purchased streaming videos, those are still secure on our original player.)

We'll keep the updates coming, it's one secret we don't to keep under wraps.

<![CDATA[REALLY Free Shipping!]]> http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postreally-free-shipping http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postreally-free-shipping Fri, 21 Oct 2011 00:00:00 GMT We restructured some of our costs in response to our customers yet again. We noticed though we had free shipping, we had to tack on costs of handling and insurance to make sure products were being sent right. But that didn't stop the rather 'charges' for free shipping. Well, no more.

We ate those costs to provide TRULY FREE SHIPPING for orders over $40 (in Canada and the U.S.) ! That includes the box, packing, and USPS insurance that you will get your product! Because of that, we can't combine certain offers, but if we can offer you a better price through our discounts via newsletter, Facebook status or Twitter, please feel free to get the best deal at When You Wish Magic!

In addition to better offers, we are testing our new When You Wish Wishlist, to help you keep track of your favorite effects and supplies from our huge catalog of over 12,0000 products. Register, login, test it, give us feedback, as we improve this new feature.

Thank you for helping us be a better online magic store, and we will keep improving.

Tony

<![CDATA[Speeding Up!]]> http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postspeeding-up http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postspeeding-up Thu, 22 Sep 2011 00:00:00 GMT Now that we've been filling our catalog with over 13,000 products, we needed a way to speed the site up for our customers. So we did: the site is now caching our categories, which means faster exploring of all our products!

<![CDATA[More Buttons to Click!]]> http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postmore-buttons-to-click http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postmore-buttons-to-click Thu, 08 Sep 2011 00:00:00 GMT On the Home page, you can see our very latest items, as well as a handful of our featured items and pre-sale items. We didn't want to ovewhelm you with new products and baried products from teh get-go, but some of yoiu requested to see ALL our featured items and pre-sale items. We liked this idea, so we have two new pages:

Featured items - http://www.whenyouwishmagic.com/store/featured

Pre-sale items - http://www.whenyouwishmagic.com/store/presale

So now you can view ALL our favorite items with new links right on the homepage. Just "click for more..."

 

You can also use our search bar to locate any product in our vast catalog.

 

We'll continue to listen to our customers, and improve your magical shopping experience!

<![CDATA[Fixed Order Form!]]> http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postfixed-order-form http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postfixed-order-form Thu, 08 Sep 2011 00:00:00 GMT We heard your comments about some of the weirdness on our site, and are letting you know, our new website is improving on a daily basis, despite a few hiccups. (If it can happen to Amazon, it can happen to us occasionally too)

We knew it there would be a few glitches when we turned the lights on the new website, but this one was a weird one. Upon checkout, the order form would error waiting for authorization, then loop back to the checkout page, causing a few orders to duplicate. Top that off with some flicking fingers on the checkout button, and we immediately tried to resolve this: we needed our website to work for you.

So we contacted the guys who helped us create the website, and they adjusted the checkout page to not loop and work nice with the credit card processors, our tech guys discovered what was creating the original error, fixed that, and added a warning to our anxious customers to be sure to only click our "Submit Order" button once.  So we fixed the error. And we contacted every customer who had this problem. So, we are ready again to take your orders!

In the coming months, we'll be adding a few more improvements to keep our store stocked with the latest, our products searchable, and our order accurate and fulfilled in quick order. We welcome your comments (and fewer complaints) to be the online magic store you go to shop!

 

Thank you for supporting us,

Tony

<![CDATA[New Category Update]]> http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postnew-category-update http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postnew-category-update Tue, 23 Aug 2011 00:00:00 GMT We updated almost all our products with new categories, including our streaming videos, and presale items! We are in the process of cleaning up the edges and considating  a few, but we hope this makes finding that illusion you've been searching for that much eaiser to find!

<![CDATA[New Improvements]]> http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postnew-improvements http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/postnew-improvements Wed, 22 Jun 2011 00:00:00 GMT You can't get everything right the first time, especially with websites. We scoured and entered as many products as we could and tested as rigourously as we could, but after a few months, we wanted to show you our progress. Upon releasing our new website into the wild, we were waiting for your feedback on how to fix little nuances, and make the experience that much better, which was our entire intent of redoing the site.

Our coupon entry was only on the cart page, not checkout, which cause our aluable one-time coupons not to register upon checkout. So we added a coupon entry field on checkout. (Our cart page still has a coupon field, but it's only to show you the amount you save, depending on which coupons you add.) SO your newsletter coupons are working!

We also got feedback that our free shipping policy was confusing, as we devised it as a discount to your total, versus being an shipping option. So we revised that so customers have the option of free shipping (upon qualification) or any USPS shipping method available for your purchase. We also made it clear the handling costs and insurance costs so your package gets to you safe and secured.

We got our contact page working correcty so we can hear your constructive feedback.

And we bounced a few emails on our new newsletter: seems some of you had moved away from your old AOL accounts. So we cleaned up our newsletter lists. (NOTE: Yes, we use MailChimp to send our newsletters, it is not spam, if the discount coupon wasn't a hint...)

We cleaned up our payments system so we are secured by Comodo, and can accept now accept Amex, as well as Visa, Mastercard and Paypal. So you can have confidence in your purchases here.

And we introduced our price-matching policy: if you can find a better advertised price online, we will do our best to match it.

Again, lots of nitpicky things, and it hasn't even been a month, but we want to be the best online store we can be, and we realize it takes our customers' feedback to get us there. So thanks, and stay tuned for more magical surprises and offers.

Magically,

Tony

<![CDATA[We now have Streaming Videos!]]> http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/poststreaming-video-intro http://whenyouwishmagic.com/news/poststreaming-video-intro Thu, 02 Jun 2011 00:00:00 GMT As part of our new website, we now offer internet video streaming of specific products to you. This enables the viewing of our Products directly on a PC or Mac. Think of the service we offer as a form of Netflix Watch Instantly but for DVDs we sell. 

In its simplest form, video is streamed to the user using standard PC hardware, and requires Adobe Flash to be installed. Viewing is initiated by pressing the "Play" button, and played back on the PC monitor. Videos can be paused or restarted at will.

 

All of our Videos are on a Content Delivery Network (CDN). A CDN is a network of computers at different locations that serve data to client computers (Customers). 

This means that someone in Europe watching a video will get their content delivered from a European server, and someone in Asia will get their content delivered from an Asian server. This allows you to sell globally and have content be delivered from the closest server to the Customer. 

 

What this means is a whole new line of products to serve to our customers, with more on the way.

 

Thanks for your patronage,

Tony
