What about the rest of your customers...
    #2538364 - 04/08/04 09:16 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hey Lana...

Why don't you open your contests to your International customers...

"International Orders

We ship to customers throughout the world every day..." (From your website)

I could understand if you only served the North American market. Your own website states that you do a considerable amount of business off-shore, though.

How about posting a special contest, only open to International entries...?

(I will post this in The Sponsors forum too... just thought it stood a better chance of being read by more people here)

Hi,
The reason is shipping.  Shipping costs outside of the US are higher than sending a package domestically.  Thats quote you have from our website is true, but those people pay for the shipping costs :smile:

This is the reason many giveaways/contests are from US based vendors to US based entries.

Plus, to giveaway an item, then have to deal with shipping and customs, it's just more than what we want to deal with.

Need anything else, ask.

Lana

sorry about the double post Lana... (Me bad...)

It's one of my pet hates

Me & my credit card have nearly pushed Japan into its 1st trade deficit for 50 years since arriving at the shroomery. I support the shroomery sponsors before other vendors (as do many members from all over the world).

Without exception, all of this business has gone to North American vendors (hence this issue gets under my skin somewhat).

I once replied to one of your contest threads ofering to pay any additional costs incurred should I be lucky enough to win... Do you think that might be a reasonable alternative?

I'm not concerned about signing for coco-coir or petri dishes...

I've found postage costs from most vendors to be entirely reasonable (I hate havibg to wait... but Shit Happens)
