Suggestion: facilitating combined shipping among forum members?
After hearing Tom say about the high cost of shipping to Australia "we want people to get together and put in a big order" I've been pondering - would the company consider using the forums to facilitate shared shipping to overseas destinations?
I can think of several ways to do it - each person pays for their order separately, or one person places the order and collects payments from other people.
Obviously there would be many traps - watching out for duty free limits would be a big one but something could be done?
Just a thought!
Any Swedish Tom Bihn Fans Out There?
My experience with UPS and HMRC in England was not good. I have been putting off other purchases until I could get to the USA in person.
That being said, I live in Sweden now and have yet to try importing goods from outside the EU, so I do not know the procedure.
I have a list of items I want to purchase, so if anyone in or around Göteborg or Stockholm wants to get together we can split the duties/delivery charges.
