I checked into your product, and the first thing I said was that I was glad there is a less expensive alternative and that Sethis' review was a good one. What I said afterward is that it ain't for me.
You said it must be a good idea because another company is doing well with the cardboard approach. You can count any number of companies that have tried copying the McDonalds approach to fast food, and they all pretty much suck just as hard because they are copying a bad idea. People think it's a good idea, maybe because McD's is making so much money, but in fact it's just crap (a shortened version of your description of their product) that people are buying based on price and availability. Likewise, I think you have started this product based on an idea that is...shall we say less than optimal, since I don't think it's total crap. To me, it doesn't matter how much less your product costs: it's still a cardboard box.
Doesn't mean other people can't enjoy it, just means it's the internet and not everyone is going to love what you got going on.

I get that, I worked in international shipping for 4 years in my early 20's. Also means I've seen a ton of the bad things that can go wrong with cardboard though, which is where my dislike of the product comes from. Cardboard works for some, not for me.
