Darn I was liking how the options were before really made it easy for me to add the 30k ap to all my accounts I usually used the 200.00 then the 50.00 then the 5.00 one to get the 30k ap on all my ap accounts.

But how ever if your going to redo it could you just add 1 transaction of say 250.00 to give 30,500 ap or 31,000 ap or what ever it comes out too that way its only 1 transaction instead of people doing 3.

Thanks for responding and letting us know whats going on.

It makes sense. Having $10 and $20 isn't really necessary, since for almost no additional effort, one could just purchase $10 twice. It's not exactly like banknotes where the difference between carrying 10 $10 bills and 5 $20 bills in your wallet adds or subtracts a lot of volume.

$2 / $5 / $20 /$50 / $150 would seem about right to me.

Or perhaps you could add an option to select multiple denominations in a single purchase. Eg, check off $100, $50, and $20 (using current denominations) if you want exactly $170 worth in AP.

Ahh.. I see. I didn't include the bonus. I was thinking 200 + 100 for 30k AP, but I didn't account for the bonus.

What are the AP points that I need to hit (30k, 15k, 50k, 10k, ??)

$200 is pretty popular, as it has the highest bonus cash. Just like $2/5 is popular for new buyers $200 is popular for buyers.

+1, though I see no problem in changing $150 to $200 since it's more popular as you (Supes) has stated.

Though I'm curious as to why you are making these changes, and also, will you be limiting the PayPal Reoccurring options as well?

Well, there are two issues.

One, too many choices is just as bad as not enough. There needs to be a balance, and we have known for a long time that we have too many.

Two, we are working on some new pages, and it has shown how bad this really is. I am looking to use Google as a method to test changes, and see the results. We will most likely take what we learn and apply to other methods as well.

Price points updated:

2/10/50/100/250

Look at these in relation to the different spender groups (low/med/high) and let me know what you think.

Nice Thanks for adding that 30k for 250.00 one Superman and I think the rest looks great too. Nice work..

It looks like we are going to be able to support 6 price points. Here are the current price points

Seems reasonable 6 to choose. I think keeping the 20 one is important. I am guessing that is quite a popular amount for smaller spenders?

Will you be changing the recurring payment one though, you currently have 7 options?

Recurring is much more complicated... because people are buying based on fixed values. If I were to remove a price point, I would have to cancel all recurring at that price point.

Right now I am more concerned with the 'normal' options that have a lot of price points.
