BGE Extender Group Buy - Payment Details

edited May 2013 in EggHead Forum
Party time!

I have finalized things with the manufacturer. PayPal is live and I can start taking orders. I will take orders through 6/1 and payment through 6/7. The manufacturer will invoice me through PayPal and I will forward your info and payment to him. As soon as I get your payment, you will go into the shipping queue in the order that payment was received.

Details:
The PayPal account is bge.groupbuy@gmail.com. The "uninitiated" will need to sign up at PayPal.com. There are two ways to pay, credit/debit card or by linking your bank account to your PayPal account and sending a wire transfer to my account. Neither I or the manufacturer will ever seen any bank account info. I am giving everyone the choice of payment. If you choose credit PayPal charges a small fee which amounts to approximately $1.06 on top of the payment itself. When paying, select "transfer" and then "send someone money". Next, select friends and family for the transfer.

Here is the fun part. I have been able to get this for $25 shippedB-)

This price is only for US eggheads. For our Northerly-inclined neighbors, PM me or @MrCookingNurse to work out details. Your packages will need to be wrapped in flannel so there may be a small surcharge for additional shipping. I am in discussion with the manufacturer on this as he hasn't ever shipped to Canada. I promise it will not be excessive.

When you send me the payment, there is a message box at the bottom. Please type your forum handle, name, and shipping address in this space. This will be forwarded to the manufacturer.

We are getting these for basically cost. The manufacturer has been a pleasure to work with and I just wanted you all to know that. He is planning on sitting up a website to do direct sales but is doing this in hopes we all will enjoy his product and refer friends to him if we like it. He did not ask me to say this but I felt that it was deserved based on my experience. I am try to be completely transparent. I have no relationship with him beyond this and am not profiting from this whatsoever.

I will let everyone know when the units begin shipping. EDIT: If you want more than one, just send the corresponding 25 bucks per unit.

Enjoy!

    When you are in paypal, it asks what you are sending money for.  I thought 'goods and services' would be the one to choose.  When you choose that, it says "Free for you. The seller pays the fees."  Are there additional fees incurred by you/manufacturer based on the way we answer that question?  (Independent of the cc payment choice).

    I placed my order, let me know if there are any issues with it. I selected "goods and services" hopefully that is ok. I didn't see that direction in your initial post. Sorry about that.

    Thanks again for putting this together.

    @Eggcelsior: kudos. You worked out a great deal. I bought one of these doohickeys a couple of years ago for about the same price. 

    I'm going to get another one through the group buy. I wasn't planning on it, because the group buy price for the Baking Steel recently was so-so, but $25 including shipping is great.

    Thanks!

    Sent payment. I think I picked Friends and Family, but can't remember seeing it. It charged me the $1 fee, so i think I am good. In case I screwed up, please let me know so I can pay the proper amount - wouldn't want you or the manufacturer to get shortchanged.

    I never believed what Mickey, Travis, Cen-Tex, and Village Idiot said about y'all. You're rock stars in my book!

    Really though, thanks for setting this up and for the awesome price you negotiated for our EggHead Family!

    Your default payment was likely a credit card and not your bank.

    Well, I had asked for 2 but went and paid up for 3. Thought I will toss one in the eggcessory storage box for a rainy day. Who knows? I might "be pushed into" buying an XL/mini....!

    Interesting.  So, do we need to send anything to you directly via the board if we're we want one, or just do the paypal thing and include all our info?

    Now that the PayPal account is set up, I believe your payment will serve as your order request.

    And now that this has gone from group buy to barbarian horde buy, does the manufacturer have any idea how long it's going to take them to fill all these orders?
