Wow, MadCow has certainly got me into a hot topic here
Where do I start, well first off thank you all for showing an interest and I will try and answer all your queries in the correct order.
Just took a look at the site and seems to be working at a reasonable loading rate for me. Also I think i'll give it a go once boxes are up (need those last few eldar figs). Good luck to them
Okay, I have had a chance to become a fully fledged GW affliate but at this moment in time I have turned that down as I do not like the rules and regulations that come with the contract so as for boxes they may be few and far between I'm afraid.
My site is going to concentrate on plastic and metal bitz (old OOP stuff and new) Specialist games and bitz - so stuff for BB or BFG - from a ball to a figure, a missing card to a playing board. It will also stock evry copy of White Dwarf and I will index them (I have done 8-10 already and nobody on the web has so thoroughly indexed am I have. I will also stock most books/catalouges/codexes, Citadel Journal and Inferno mags - again they will be catalouged and indexed.
The site will also carry both new in blister GW miniatures both 40K and WFB and also a ton of old and OOP figures.
Paints (new and OOP, I have a lot of the old paint still brand new and no it hasn't dried) also a lot of accessories like die,spray,flock, etc and believe me when I say this, all my prices will be amongst the best value you will find anywhere.
I will also carry Ral Partha, Foundry etc. If I could click my fingers and have everything I need to list in the shop then I would have about 30,000 product lines.
I price check everything before putting my price on it and then I knock off a chunk. I am also thinking of offering a "if you find it cheaper anywhere else ((except Ebay Auctions)) then I will beat it" but I need to work out the finer points of that.
So the boxes may be few and far between BUT who knows I may stock up before Christmas.
Next is WizzyWang:
looks pretty good to me and to have the site dude posting on here is also a bonus. When will you be addng the boxed stock? Cheapass bits rock like hell, but full sets is the key to my limited budget :o)
Again buddy I will have to look into the feasibility off that but it is something I will look into over the coming months. Thanks for your kind words too. Cheapass bitz, models and lots more is a promise I can make with 100% certainty though
ok, since you're answering questions here, might as well put one up.
Any estimate for when you're going to have meltaguns and missile launchers up? I really need some of those and I can never get a hold of them
Ah you will kick me for this but my good buddy Ron from over at "From the Warp" both up all my old Meltaguns a few weeks ago BUT I will check my stock to see if I can find any - I do get new stuff a couple of times a week so you can always email me and I will add you to the wishlist - with the wishj list you get super cheap prices as I do not have to photograph and list it saves me time so you get at cost price! On the Missile Launchers, can you tell me what type? There are some launchers still in the shop just use the search function. Again though let me know and I will contact you as soon as I get them (That's if they are not in stock).
So you had a 99.99% positive feedback... meaning you sent a bobcat instead of a Baneblade to 12 customers. :p
Ah just my luck for one of those 12 to be on here - shush I was hoping the bobcat had caused you to go insane with fury and be to mad or bad to be coherent enough to blacken my name :D
On a more serious note, I may only have had a 4600 feedback but remember I was selling in the days when a customer could buy from you 10 times a month and leave feedback and still all that feedback would only count as 1! Not like today where they all count. Also I find 90% of Ebayers don't bother leaving feedback so the feedback count was always just a fraction of the sales - I could always ask my accountant to tally up the sales over that period to give me an exact count but he would just love that as he bills me per hour
Buddy I have pinged you so many emails today my head is spinning - you'd never think I am sitting here snuffling with Flu at this rate
I was going to put a quote of your words in buddy but I thought this answer is huge as it is :D so I thought it best to just answer
Can I start by saying that I hold no grudges and I thank you for coming back this way. It really means heck of a lot to read what you wrote. I too want to apologise as I got a little snippy myself and I am not usually one to do that so soz for that.
Now on the 30% off, it seems I have confused a lot of people with this but basically it is a bonus for my regular customers - I am working out a way to define a "regular customer" as I was doing it from my head and had no hard rules. I think that needs to change. The discount will be an extra 30% off my prices and my prices will always be at least 30% off GW pirces anyway so in the end a regular customer could get a reduction of 60% off GW RRP. That plus free postage if the order is above £40.
As for the boxes, I do believe my answers above will clear that one up for now
Thanks for coming back matey and yep I do like to think I have the odd funny bone in this here skelly of mine
Thanks for spotting the typos - if you want to earn a £5 voucher to the store fancy emailing me all the typos you can find? Would save me the trouble as I already have a ton of work in front of me?
Also, you will have to forgive me if I don't recognise you but I did sell to a lot but thank you for attesting to my honesty and ebay experience.
Appreciated a lot.
And that is it for now I do believe. I just need to run and check on Modelling-Mayhem as MadCow said they are gone out of biz - I hope not as they were a decent bunch
PS: sorry if there are any typo's but I am shattered and my Lemsip is calling my name as is my bed - goodnight y'all.
