Hi all,

We have some exciting news!

In response to customer feedback, we’ve been working on a new tool that will allow us to automatically split resource collections, replacing a manual process that used to take many hours with an automatic process that takes a few minutes.

This means that over the next few weeks, thousands of resources will be available for individual purchase on logos.com and verbum.com.

Our goal is to have almost every live collection in our catalog broken up and available for sale by the end of July.

Two things to note:

1. For various backend reasons, there will often be a delay between when you see a title appear as a standalone product and when it is actually available for sale (usually less than 24 hours).

2. From time to time you may notice a few errors or missing data on some product pages. Because this is an automated process, when there are empty fields and/or mistakes in the metadata (and there are bound to be some) this is carried over to the live product page on the website. Please bear with us! We will continue to work to make sure that enough information is on the page. If you see an egregious factual error, please let us know. All other issues (e.g. missing author bio) are likely already known and will be addressed in time.

We are very excited about this and we hope you are too.

P.S. Keep an eye out, we have a number of exciting promotions planned for these individual resources.

Does this mean at some point in the near future that Psalms Vol. 3 by Allen P. Ross will be available for individual sale?

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

I agree! Please, don’t forget about the need for breaking up Spanish collections.

Ben, any guesses on what the policy will be when a collection goes on sale, will the individual titles also go on sale? At the same discount? That would be super awesome if that happens.Big Smile

I know that as time goes by this post will either have been missed or forgotten.

I think it would be a good idea to have a disclaimer on each individual automatically generated page which reads something like...

"This page has been generated automatically and some information my be missing - if this is the case the information can be found by searching for sets where this volume is included"

How about an automatic "dynamic pricing enabling tool"? Stick out tongue

That will be included by default...

If you don't have the resource the price will be shown on the page.

If you do have the resource the price will be £0.00 or more likely $0.00

Jan means automatic dynamic pricing for every collection that is not restricted by the publisher. As it is now, we have to request those.Ick!
