    No images for BuyCostumes.com
    It looks like there is a problem with the feed inside Popshops coming from BuyCostumes.com for images. There are no images showing even inside the store builder. The image URL from BuyCostumes.com looks fine.

    This is peak Halloween Costume time... Can someone please look into this!!!

    Popshops does not monitor this forum. You will get faster results at support @ popshops.com

    Earlier there had been a problem with the BuyCostumes.com datafeed found in CJ but now I can see all the images.
    Thanks Kristen

    Hi all,

    Thanks to everyone for the alerts on this issue. And thanks Kristen for getting this corrected so quickly.

    I also wanted to let everyone know that the corrected feed is being imported into PopShops right now.

    Thanks for your patience on this.

    Patience is wearing very thin - still no images.

    This is really unacceptable.

    I have to agree, I know BuyCostumes feed has been corrected, I downloaded it this morning but the delay appears to be popshops related. This is one of the reason I moving away from Popshops on my sites.

    I'm beginning to feel that way also. In the past year or so, I've added probably 500 PS shops to my sites, and to replace that would be a monumental amount of work, but between the frequent down time, this problem that has never been addressed, the totally unacceptable amount of time it now takes for a new merchant to get their feed active, and the current buycostumes issue, I'm getting to the point where I'll be considering going back to the old fashioned way.

    p.s. - still no buycostumes' images.

    Funny, isn't it, images come back up, and voila, a sale almost immediately. I wonder how many were lost?

    I have been thinking about this too. It is never good if your rely too much on one thing, ...

    My only hesitation is what is indexed already in the search engines using the psp_search query. It would take a whole bunch of redirects to not loose any back links or bookmarked pages. I have about 277 shops so far.

    P.S. buycostumes is back up.

    Hi all, I apologize that some of you are seeing your images and others are not. CJ images were corrected yesterday almost as soon as I uploaded a new feed. But Pops is working as fast as their system allows to get these images in. We are working on this and I'm hoping to report back the moment I know with 100% confidence that Pops is completely imported. ~Kristen | kristen at buycostumes.com

    When I last posted here at 4:29 PDT, PS images were all ok on my sites.

    Just checked now and most, but not quite all, of the images are GONE AGAIN.

    But, porkchop, the few I clicked did show images on the buycostumes site, even those with no PS image.

    If it was fixed a few hours ago, WHAT is going on NOW????????
