Though I have contacted Logos on this issue, I was wondering if anyone was have something similar? (Don't desire anyone to pay for an individual item twice and not know it, etc.).

Here is a sample of what I am presently seeing with Academic pricing, etc.

I own all but Emmaus Journal 15, yet my price is $49.95

https://www.logos.com/product/4615/emmaus-journal

I own all but Master's Seminary Journal 18, yet my price is $54.95

https://www.logos.com/product/4625/masters-seminary-journal

I own all but Southern Baptist Journal 11, yet my price is $34.95

https://www.logos.com/product/4630/southern-baptist-journal-of-theology

I own all but Trinity Journal 27, yet my price is $79.95

https://www.logos.com/product/4631/trinity-journal

I own all but Ashland Journal 38-46, yet my price is $27.38

https://www.logos.com/product/44093/ashland-theological-journal

I own all but Detroit Journal 12-18, yet my price is $24.20

https://www.logos.com/product/44092/detroit-baptist-seminary-journal

I own all but Journal and Ministry 12-17, yet my price is $19.71

https://www.logos.com/product/44103/journal-of-ministry-and-theology

I own all but Maranatha Journal 3-4, yet my price is $19.95

https://www.logos.com/product/44098/maranatha-baptist-theological-journal

I own all but Chafer Journal 13, yet my price is $39.99

https://www.logos.com/product/50021/chafer-theological-seminary-journal

I own all by Journal of Grace 21-51 yet my price is $23.07

https://www.logos.com/product/44096/journal-of-the-grace-evangelical-society

I own all but Puritan Reformed 4-5, yet my price is $14.26

https://www.logos.com/products/search?q=master+journal&start=15

I own all but Conservative Theological 11-15, yet my price is $29.31

https://www.logos.com/product/44094/conservative-theological-journal-journal-of-dispensational-theology 

I own all but JETS 50, but my price is $98.95?

https://www.logos.com/product/4624/journal-of-the-evangelical-theological-society

I could go on and on and I may be incorrect, but dynamic pricing does not appear to be working for "some" individual journals?

So I am wondering if it is working for the Master Journal pre-order (note: some of the above journals are not included in the Master and some of the pricing above may be correct, but ...). 

Yours In Christ

Most of these journals (particularly ones with the low product numbers) don't support dynamic pricing. The website will tell you when dynamic pricing is kicking in (it will tell you very clearly over the price, and you can hover to get an explanation).

The reason for this is likely because they're old resources produced before dynamic pricing was a thing. Some of those contracts have since been renegotiated, but that wasn't possible for a lot of the journals. That's partly why a lot of the journals are being re-done from scratch. I suspect that once the Master Bundles have been completed, some of these earlier journal collections will be retired.

So the problem is not that dynamic pricing is supposed to be being applied, but your earlier products are not being recognised. The problem is that dynamic pricing can't be applied (because the contract doesn't allow it). You therefore needn't worry about the Master Bundles, etc., where dynamic pricing is being applied.

Many thanks. That actually computes. Many thanks.
