Why there is no Construct 3 licence in Scirra Store?

  • I just saw that Construct 3 is not related to Scirra store in any way. My concern is to be able to use my Scirra Store Credit to buy the C3 Licence (when able) why isn't that an option? why is not related to the store?

  • It's a subscription now.

    Does that answer your question?

  • nope, because we cant use scirra store credit for it. also it's separated method and page.

  • Then I'd suggest asking them directly.

  • Scirra store is part of old website - plan is to move it over to Construct.net eventually.

    We could of sold the license through Scirra.com, but it would be very difficult and time consuming to add. Looking long term, everything is moving here so decided to go this route and split it off for now.

    RE credits earned for selling items in the Scirra store, we do not and probably will not ever allow you to spend this credit on your subscriptions or other items in the store. The reason for this is although it seems like a good idea - from an accounting point of view this is very hard and time consuming to process especially when sales get refunded, the original sale is charged back etc etc. Basically introduces a whole host of extra edge cases which are very hard to account for, and time consuming to accommodate!

    Ultimately it would cater for a minority of users, with a disproportionate overhead from us.

  • that's understable. But a lot of places simply don't allow refund when using the internal credit. With an extra steep of "if you understand this, proceed?" will make it a lot more easy for every construct developer.

  • One of the things you have to take into consideration is that they would have to make a method to add money to your account.

    That doesn't really make a lot of sense.

    It's really hard to process a refund or handle a dispute if the payment for something is taken from multiple sources. Basically, lots of edge cases and difficult to handle situations for not much real benefit for us unfortunately.

    I believe for similar reasons a lot of other stores have similar policies.
