BGE Grid Extender Group Buy - UPDATE

EggcelsiorEggcelsior Posts: 14,013
Shipping is getting into full swing(get it) today. They are being shipped Priority mail so I expect that they will begin arriving early next week.

To any one that is still planning on ordering...

PayPal has been riding my butt about the transfers. If you want to order one, please mark the transfer as "goods and services" instead of "friends and family". This will cause me to be charged a fee of $1.03 per $25(2.9% plus $0.30). People that already submitted payment have nothing to worry about. I would appreciate if anyone else purchasing could add an extra dollar to your transfer and I'll eat the rest of the cost. Just make sure to mark that you are "buying goods and services".

Thanks all for your interest in this!

    Eggcelsior - I will run another transaction and send a few bucks to defray some of the extra PayPal charges - a small pay it forward gesture - I could use some good egg karma going into the weekend.

    +1, if it works to defray some of your out of pocket costs I can do that as well tomorrow or Sunday. With as much work as you put in organizing this, you really shouldn't have to eat any costs.

    @spaightlabs, thanks

    @Grillmagic, You are fine. You read it right, Paypal is just making me change.

    Eggcelsior after all your hard work you should not have to "cover" anything. I ordered two I'll send you another five. Still an excellent, I mean EGGcelent deal.

    Thanks again,

    I sent 30 dollars to help defray his costs and clicked the friends and family thing as well because I didn't read this thread and digest it before sending.  So this is another bump post. Sorry guys, my bad.

    When I sent mine in (and screwed it up, but that's not important), I checked the box that had me paying the fee.  Only fair, considering how good a deal it is and how much work has been put into it.

    You have to love how when PayPal gets beat they start throwing a tantrum. I loathe PayPal anymore but have used them pretty much since the inception.

    Thanks for all the goods. I'll pocket the money now. Bump
  • cortguitarmancortguitarman Posts: 2,061
    Will the supplier eat those costs? It seems only fair since you are bringing him thousands of dollars in business and he is giving this deal to get his name out there. I'll pay more too. How much do you have to eat?

    I'm with the others. Can I still send you some extra $ after the deadline? Its not right for you to be out some cash after setting this up for the rest of us.

    Agreed, you shouldn't have to cover anyone. Let us know the damage and we can make it right.

    I was a bit afraid of this and almost said something a couple days ago when I put the order in. PayPal can be a real b**** to deal with. So many horror stories. What exactly are they telling you regarding the fees for the first x orders that were sent without the fee? Are they demanding the fees be taken out or only for orders after a certain date? How much are they saying you owe them? Lets get the community to make this right so you don't have to eat the costs.
  • jetmechjetmech Posts: 75
    They shouldn't **** about anything, they got their fee from me when I did friends and family and agreed to pay the fee

    If anyone wants to help defray the Pain Pal expenses just send 5 or 10 bucks to the same address you sent your payment to. Won't take many folks sending a few bucks to cover the damage.

    @Eggcelsior: I sent you some extra money to cover the surcharge for a few orders. Sorry, I meant to do this over the weekend. 

    Thanks again to you and MCN for organizing this. I'm sorry i forgot the 3rd member involved in this, but thanks to all of you. You put together a smooth operation!

    Question- I got busy and missed the group buy dead line. How and who can I contact to order. I understand I will most likely have to pay more but will teach me to pay more attention. Thanks in advance
