if it happens, count me in as well
one for me 2.
Well... there is obvious demand for Graded Pandas in Australia
It's nice to see
Hopefully we shall also see more NGC Pandas grace our soil in the near future.
Since there appears to be the demand for another 10 order I will process it after we complete the shipping/receiving of the first order this week
Any of those members outside of Australia and wanting a single one I will also help you as well.
There will have to be a cutoff at some point to those outside of Australia because I will not be able to ship to 100 countries
At $55 I am basically absorbing all shipping to get them to me as well as to the members because that is what I am paying for them, anyone that does not believe me you are more than welcome to search yourself and if you can find them cheaper I will buy them from you
I don't know how long wifey will allow me to continue this ... I guess since she just got her Lu Vatons (I'm not even sure if that is the right spelling) she is happy
Since the demand for graded pandas appears to be growing I think the comp this weekend may call for a bit of a "rarity" if you will
I'm going to give you my wifes phone number so that she can hear this !
Oh hey guys I also added my email for those outside of Australia looking to get a few of these ... shipping to anywhere outside of Australia will be $65 a piece and I will still not break even on them after shipping.
Also please remember ... I am not a dealer/seller and I am not selling any pandas other than these ... if you are looking for something special, the members right here on this forum have a great variety at good prices or I can assist you with other resouces as best I can. From what little I know here at this time ... yennus, fishball, maggie, gold pelican have great prices as do many of the other members so I would look to them first.
happy collecting !
I don't think it's fair that Comeaux should absorb the shipping costs, either to him or to forum members. I am happy to pay the freight costs, including the cost to Yennus when he consigns one of the coins to me. If the members split the costs equally, it won't come to much. Agree ??
Incidentally, Comeaux - it's Louis Vuitton .... lol !!!! Shoes or handbag ???
It's fine, don't worry ... I offered so shipping is no problem
It is shoes
Thanks Capricorn, I share your sentiments. This is what the cost will be affected by:
Base price is $55USD.
Exchange rate: $x.xx
PayPal Fees not sure: $x.xx
Possible Custom Fees: $x.xx
If picking up at the Sydney or PerthStacker Meet $0 F2F.
If requires postage, $13.40 (Plat. Post).
The coins shipped yesterday via Fedex ... I believe yennus should have been emailed the tracker number ...
Fedex Tracker is showing Monday delivery ...
I am up for one and happy to pay additional costs.
Wow I didn't anticipate the demand for these graded bears it has been overwhelming !!!
Between those in Australia and several members abroad in other countries I have gotten a ton of emails & PM's
I could have gone from a friendly middle man to instant dealer and made a boatload on these graded pandas This is getting crazy !!!
But then again that's not how I roll
Paypal takes fees for conversion also. As i mainly deal with Paypal only. Its rates are between 2.5 to 3.5% for currency conversion and sending money oversees, besides the 3% it takes from the receiver of money. ( Can be saved if the payment is done through gifts )
But you can't save the conversion fee charged by paypal
PayPal will freeze your account and suspend your ability to receive payments via the personal (gift) tab if you continue to use it for the sale of goods (group buys included). This has happened to me, and it is a pain in the ass to get them to reverse their decision if they do so. I specifically called and spoke with representatives on numerous occasions about the use of PayPal and the gift option for group buys and they do not permit it. They monitor accounts and if you receive a high volume of payments this way you should expect to hear from them.
I organized/completed 3 large volume group buys through this forum in the past, so I offer this as honest advice based on experience. PayPal finally caught up with me while I was in the process of organizing the 4th group buy, which I cancelled because the fees negated the deal for everyone. Nobody likes fees, but if you want to avoid hassles its best to complete the transactions through the "business" side and build the fees into your sale price if you're going to continue doing this.
And the fee for receiving funds from international users is 3.9% of total + $0.30 per transaction.
just avoid multiple transactions ... I have not had a problem yet, I have done it about 3 or 4 times this year ... I'm not too worried about it.
I would think it would look anomalous with several gift transactions without any or few business transactions
I have made over 100 purchases through paypal this year so I might think that would have some relevance.
thanks for the info though
I would like to be gifted many times via paypal
In paypal argentina. Dont have the gift option. I think in Latinoamrica have a lot of abuses and paypal ban it.
Same here bro... we Indians also don't have Gift option.
