Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Companion, Pathfinder Accessories, PF Special Edition, Starfinder Accessories, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Not sure where best to post this, but I'll try here.

Used to be, when I looked at a Paizo product (player companion, module, whatever) that I bought from Paizo, at the top of the page would be a notation in red that told me so, and when I bought it. Today that notation is missing. It's been replaced by a note about whether the pdf is in my downloads. That's nice, but I liked the old "you bought this on xx/xx/xx". Maybe we can have that and the pdf note?

The "you bought this...." feature is really, really good. I also hope it returns soon.

At least it is still there for non-PDF products such as miniatures.

I second this request.

That feature was incredibly helpful, especially during stock-up-and-save sales when I'm trying to figure out what I already have on my groaning gaming shelves. I'll also request its return.

So are you saying that that feature has been lost for purchases of physical books? If it is only the PDFs that lack it, then the only information being lost is the exact date that you bought it.

It's the purchase of physical books that's gone missing. You can always find out what pdfs you've bought, and when, by looking in 'my downloads".

I think this was changed when they added the download tab to the product page if you have the PDF, I could be wrong though.

Aw, I hadn't noticed that change. I like that feature. I'm sure it helped me avoid double-buying more than once. Hope it returns!

I agree. I have more Paizo products than I know what to do with and when there's a sale, it's nice to know what I don't have (i.e. what I NEED) even if I'm not shopping at home. Or don't have time to sort through all the random modules that I got at last year's Great Golem sale.

Ah, I see now. I checked on a non-Paizo book that had no PDF version for sale and saw the purchase date on it -- ditto for various miniatures. Most subscriptions are not an issue as anything received that way should have both PDF and print forms covered. So the case where we lose valuable information is for any non-subscription purchase of a product that is available in both print and PDF forms, right?

Hey guys, thank you for the feedback. I've added the message not showing up for some products to our backlog for investigation.

Heh. Most of my Paizo products are currently in two stacks on my bedroom floor. The reach up almost to my armpits. Could be worse - I'm only 5'6". Oh, my battles minis are elsewhere. That's another good sized pile.


Yeah, I noticed this as well, when looking at the Buff deck.
I was not entirely sure if I already got it, and the product lacked the 'You already bought this...' line.
I went into my order history, where I luckily found it.
