We just launched a site update that we hope will make the sign-up process less confusing.  Formerly, users had to verify ownership of their email address before they could even login; this resulted in many confused users emailing us, thinking the site and/or their account was broken.  Now, users can login directly after signing up and will be reminded to verify their email address before they can receive price drop alerts.

Verification is also much easier, as users can simply reply to the “welcome to our site” email we send after registration, and our system will receive the email reply and activate the account.  If you don’t receive the email, you can request another be sent, or you can simply send a message to verify@mail.camelcamelcamel.com from your Camel account’s email address and your account will be activated.

Along with that excellent bit of 90’s technology, we have added another email feature.  Users can now reply to our price drop alerts with “delete” or “unsubscribe” in the body of the reply, and our system will delete the price watch that generated the alert.

We hope these changes will make our site easier to use.  Please let us know if you have any questions or comments.  As always, we love to hear from you.
