Re: Paprium for Genesis Finally Released !

Just got this in my email -


Dear chupon,

Thank you again for your patience.

Unfortunately we got our PAYPAL USA account closed without any reason nor appeal possible. So the trolls and mediocres won, for now.
IMPORTANT:
We ask everyone to hold their orders as we are getting charged by PAYPAL each time someone cancels their orders.

Secondly, we should receive PAYPAL USA payments in August 2021. We decide to wait we have the funds on our bank account before shipping out any further games so we don't get trapped in the same situation from 2017 where we shipped all goods but never got paid.

We are currently answering our last tickets, it will take couple more days, we will put back our website online later with more announcements including a new strategy to continue selling our products.

- For people awaiting refund, extra patience will be required, we will ask one of our partners to help.
- For people with returned, lost or broken parcels, we will get back to you asap.
- For people awaiting for their games, keep faith, we always deliver.
- For people awaiting to order, stay tuned, we wont give up and extra surprises ahead!

Thanks again for your support and patience.

Best Regards,

WATERMELON TEAM



Soooooo while I’m not in any rush to get the game and while I have no doubt Watermelon will eventually deliver. They always do. It’s just a question of when.

It’s fine. I’ve more important things to worry about.

I still don't what's so complicated about setting up a standard store. Every other company manages to do it just fine. Admittedly, I'm not too hot on Paypal's terms and conditions, and I've forgotten how WM has been handling things, but I can't imagine the convoluted gems system, for example, or the fact they essentially operate only through crowdfunding, but choose to bypass Kickstarter (or similar platforms), presumably to avoid handing them a cut, looks particularly good to a company like Paypal.

I think it’s that WM took money years ago and was taking so long to deliver that PayPal got tons of refund requests. That can be an indication of unhealthy or even predatory business practices (and WM is known for the former).
