I'm another long-term lurker here and find myself moved to make my first post here in this thread too! I have read (with much delight and laughter) many of the stories about Idiot...

I look forward to reading them all together with a glass of something cold!

Thank you for sharing them with us.

Cheers,

Gordon.

This coment only applies to international orders.

I volunteer at a non-profit organization here in the USA which does quite a bit of international business. We have hundreds of foreign members and sell booklets, trinkets and even small hardware. Foreign exchange can be a problem. We find the best ways to receiving foreign payments are:

Credit card - unavailable to Foss, I assume.

Paypal - a good way, internationally, though they take a small cut.

Postal Money Order - No cost to the recipient, but a nuisance to go to the Post Office and find a clerk who knows how to handle them. The sender pays the fee and has to go to a Post Office.

We find that personal cheques are a terrible way to receive money internationally. US banks charge such a hefty fee that we might as well throw away modest-value cheques.

You should investigate shipping by international book rate or media mail. It might be very slow, however.

You'll get a couple of orders from me.

I just emailed through an order.


What about just a simple Bank Transfer with our username as the "code" which will appear on the statement?

Airmail isn't too expensive. Only costs 5.61 pounds airmail to Aus.

Seacue, if you recommend a Postal Money Order that would be great, though it is a bit of hassle I realise.

As for the prices, the USA and Australia seemed to lumped in as 'the rest of the world' for airmail.

If by shipping you mean surface mail...
Use Surface Mail to mail letters to anywhere in the world outside Europe, or to send printed papers and small packets everywhere, including Europe. Delivery times are likely to be:

Western Europe: Up to 2 weeks from date of posting
Eastern Europe: Up to 5 weeks
North America: Up to 6 weeks
South America, Africa and Asia: Up to 8 weeks
Australasia: Up to 12 weeks.

Why not just set a 1.50 P&P fee per book. That'll cover the postage and any packaging, it's less than most websites charge.

Hey Standard
The 1.50 would only work for the UK. For UK sales they should be sending a SAE so that's them pretty much sorted out anyway.

I just left it as P+P because there are people looking it sent to Cananda, the US, Europe and Australia. So they can workout individually what they should add on, I'm keeping an eye on that as well though.

If we (in the UK) are to send you a SAE, we need to know how thick the book is, especially as some of us are requesting more than one copy . . .

G-CPT

155mm x 230mm x 10mm, weighs 210g. Told you it was thin.

For UK then it'd be a stamped SAE GCPT.

Foss,

Are you able to give us some idea of when you will reply to e-mails? I sent one about an hour after you posted the itsadogslife e-mail addy and not heard anything back.

I appreciate this is turning into a monster for you, but there is no way of knowing if you have received our e-mails until you reply (I wouldn't want to miss out because of Hotmail going pete tong). Of course we don't want to keep sending e-mails in the mistaken belief that you might not have received one - it would just get silly then!

Cheers

Sorry about that anotherthing, arrived safe and sound.

Whisky - you sent one on 21 April 2009 19:23:58. (2?)

tiggs - what you can say is 'I'll have 5 copies please, a talking dog is Pullitzer Prize material, as it happens I know some of the judges, and also a major film producer who thinks Russell Crowe would be just perfect to play you, although a cameo role would be brilliant.'

Or something like that.
