Hi Guys RGI here!

What I want to talk to you about today is the new AmiAmi pre-owned section. You see for me I really loathe the new pre-owned section, why you ask? Well first of all there's the amount of items you have per page, the old section had a list which would incorporate about 40-50 items per page meaning, A you could shoot down that list and spot bargains quicker and B it was less time consuming. However that too had faults with a small thumbnail and in hastiness you could inadvertently miss things while scrolling.

Now the new look AmiAmi looks great, it fills the screen and it really does have a fresh feel about it, however the pre-owned section is hell, pages upon pages of figures to look at and as you can see here there're a lot! Now the downside to this is it is more time consuming because there're only 20 items per page which I feel is ludicrous! I mean Mandarake gives you the option to have over 200 so AmiAmi you need to do this! I can't spend my entire morning going through over 200 pages it's utter madness! Plus in that time I could possibly be missing out on bargains that are pages ahead, yes this could happen with the old version but at least you'd get there quicker giving you a higher percentage of getting said bargain before it's gone! Now don't get me wrong I do like the new bigger pics,as I mentioned old version you could miss stuff, this way you see exactly what the figure looks like which is great as it stops you from clicking back and forth on the pages, so this is a good addition but I think AmiAmi should have an option to have a full list and then when you hover the mouse over the thumb nail you get the big pictures, this would greatly enhance user friendliness and speed up a chance to grab those bargains! Oh and I also like to add the new currency conversion is an awesome addition, as I no longer have to keep going back and forth between Google to convert, nice one AmiAmi! Anyway in conclusion MFC which AmiAmi pre-owned do you prefer? Old or new? This should be interesting....

Thanks for reading! (*^V^*)

*Edit something else I'd like to mention too versus old and new is the out of stock thing, the old version was frustrating, as you'd click on a figure that shows in stock and find it isn't available, so at least the new version has rectified this as it tells you it is unavailable, saving time!

I got ITEM #178227 used from Ami Ami I think she was B/C the box was damaged but the figure is in great condition I wanted to cancel my account though cause I wanted to cut back on ordering things as ami ami was addicting but even if you order a B item it is almost like new though I got a cat ear and tail girl sorry forgot her name and the figure came broken her tail fell off in transit it was upsetting I contacted ami ami but they said they couldn’t do anything about it sort of glad I cut my account from them cause I am using cdjapan and even if I can’t access old figures anymore their shipping is much cheaper but I think getting old figures is easier on your wallet especially if they are used which I try to do to save money haha

Tiamat262 anno/i fa#38848453So at the launch of this new site I was able to at least click page 1 then 2 open in new tab 3 open in new tab etc and so forth. Today Aug 17 2018 I cant even do that anymore. Listed available item 12463, number of pages 637. Now that I have to do them one by one this is extremely stupid. It would take over a day to go through all the pages.
I wonder if this is only for the English version and that the Japanese version is more friendly in terms of item per page as well as being able to open extra pages.

Here is the Japanese site for Aug 2017 First thing is it's the old style. Way more items per page...

Now I could not get to far as my understanding of the written language sucks but still this was updated today thus they are still on the old system way less pages to browse from what I can tel.
Really not happy with the new look only because of the number of items per page .. if they want to piss off clients I can sure see this doing it.
>_<

Wow! That's shocking! I really hope they do, do something about this, as I'm sure it will put people off going to use the section, as no one wants to sit there all day going through 20 items per page, I'm only looking at 20 pages now and then not bothering, yes I might miss something but honestly until it fixed I refuse to sit and go through that sheer amount of volume of stuff! This is a travesty of good thinking, yes the big pics are great but seriously 20 items per page? What the hell were they thinking!???

Since their site now displays empty pages with no results in my primary browser and I won't switch to the other one where it works just to randomly browse the site, I'd say my chances of randomly finding and buying something dropped by about 100%.
I probably won't buy anything ever again there unless I'm looking for a specific item I absolutely need.

So let me correct a few things from my post earlier. A I like the new site very much but there are a few complications the biggest one of all is the fact that you only get 20 new items per page on the pre-owned section.

On the pre-order section the old site was better as you could go pre-order and you would see at the bottem of every page a selection for the next few pages. I just tried to show my wife the Saber on the horse. Not sure of the title but when I went to pre-order and went to the bottom of the page I could not see more pages to chose and continue onward. Maybe I am blind and missed something but a site not being intuitive is a bad thing. It should be easy to get to the next page and see more figurines.

Is it me or am I the only one thinking this.

The easier it is to peruse a site the more you will stay on it, the more chance that you will actually fall on something you like and purchase it.

just a thought.

I mean I can't even see the pre-owned section on my iPad Air 2 so... eh
I have to use my computer to see the section which is super annoying

But I like the new style! It looks a lot more modern and cleaner.

I have already sent an e-mail to Ami Ami about this and they said that my e-mail was going to be directed to the technical team. I also mentioned this in a blog not sure if it was mine or someone else but honestly it is utter chaos as you said to now go through and look at items on their site.

It use to be I could do 1000 items per page thanks to a loop hole. That dropped to 500 then 100 to not being able to alter anything to get more items on a page.

2475 items in their pre owned section now takes 123 pages to scroll though before that was about what 26 - 40 pages max.

I hate the site now and glad that I do not peruse it as often as I did. I have my wish list I open up and I can automatically see if a figurine I wanted is available.

I'm usually sort of a luddite when it comes to web design, but I actually kind of like the new look of AmiAmi's website; it's a little cleaner and less cluttered than the old design.

That said, I agree with some of the other comments about features I'd like to see added, like the ability to see more/less items per page. I'd also like to see an option where you can sort items from new-old, as new items sometimes get jumbled in with old, but that's always been a quirk of their preowned inventory...

Surprisingly, I prefer the new one. I thought I would hate Amiami's new design but everything works so much more smoothly to me now. I like being able to see the product I'm buying right away, with more items on one page, and sorting it is easier for me so that I can find pre-owned items in my fandoms.

Great to see you back RBI
I can't say why but I liked the old format better even though I don't think it was very good TBH
