List prices changed (stainless instead of WSF)

    Models show up in the gallery showing the higher price of stainless steel, when wsf is also available.

    Ok, am I missing the way to set a default material for a model or something?


  2. I noticed that. I have a sneaking suspicion it's based on the categories you put your models in. I've found that most of my models stay with WSF shown as the default, but those I've placed into jewellery categories are switched to SS as the default.

    Thank you, oh smart one :)

    Nice trick, but I would prefer us shop-owners being consulted on this ;)
    This way I feel like I'm running a shop in the dark,
    where random personel is calling the shots and strategies.

    I do hope we can set the default soon, ourselves.

    Was about to post the same question. Yea, I'd prefer the ability to set it my self as the difference on my building block between wsf and ss is almost $200 so I'd prefer people see the lower price tag...

    Yes, we can manipulate the recommend materials per category.

    The current setting is an experiment. We found the metals more appropriate for jewelry.

    I concur that is a good idea to let you guys set the recommend materials per model.

    ... and is this still being looked at?. I too find it really annoying to have the higher priced material listed as default.
