Default SHIPPING DEALEXTREME to anywhere!

[edit]Hi all,

I live here in Hong Kong, practically at driving distance from DealExtreme. I noticed how US customers can't get lasers from DX anymore, and thought I could reship them for people. However, I will only be able to do this if there are enough people, but if there ARE enough people interested, shipping would be very very cheap. I just went through the costs of bulk mail, and I think if we get 50 laser pointers the shipping price to the US would be around only $2 for each. This is airmail and takes about a week, the exact same service DX ships with as far as I know.

There might be a few other costs such as packaging, but it would still remain very cheap. Let's see how many interested people we can get.[/edit]


Reshipping DealExtreme Lasers to Anywhere via Hong Kong!


This GB is focused on bringing you DX items where DX will no longer send them. The price depends entirely on the weight of the laser. Estimated prices will be set, which will generally be higher than the actual cost. I cannot calculate the actual cost until I have packaged the items for shipment, so when I have, I will refund the amount of money that was paid in excess to each buyer. At this point I will be able to fix the costs for the next round, and this will no longer be a problem.

The postage is registered airmail, meaning I do get a number that can be used to trace the package if it does not arrive within x weeks. I've never had to do this, so I have no experience with this procedure, but its good to have it anyway. Shipping usually takes less than a week but handling time at the destination can be a few days to one or two weeks in rare cases.

Rules:

I claim no responsibility for which items you order
I claim no responsibility for your local laws regarding these items
I claim no responsibility for the quality of the products you ordered
I claim no responsibility for any damage to goods in transit unless you choose to pay for insurance
I claim no responsibility for items lost due to customs, see number 2.

Procedure:

The GB is open now. Please post your order, and I will post the price here. You should then transfer the amount with PayPal to me. Once I receive payment, I will tick you off the list. I will wait for at least 5 different orders before getting the items from DX.

I will then unpack and test the lasers to see if they work properly and if anything is broken. If everything is fine, I will ship them to you.
Once they are shipped, I will refund the extra shipping costs.

Then I will set the prices for different items, as I will then know the weights of some of the items, and start a new round.

Pricing:

You will need to pay me for:
- The DX item you want
- Shipping and packaging costs
- Paypal fees (3% of the total).
- Optional insurance is 15% of the total price.

Payment:

At the moment I only accept PayPal for this GB, it is the safest way to pay.
Payment must be in US Dollars, if you have a different currency in PayPal please convert it first.

Send money in PayPal and choose to send payment for Goods.
Include at least your nickname and your order in the message box.


List of orders:

john_lawson: 5x #2390
Price: 5x 22.93 = $114.65
Shipping: $20
Total + 3% = $138.70
With Optional Insurance: Total * 1.15 * 1.03 = $159.49

yeah and this guy lives close to dx so he can pick em up at the Factory basically and we wont have to wait for them to send it out. i might be interested in the 200mw Green Baton style with free ems. but then again it would be better for sawt as he lives in Canada and it is legal to get laser in the country. What will you do if the laser is Held at the Customs Dept ???

Read carefully. The OP states that IF we get a 50 pointer order, THEN the shipping would be $2 each. That means that he/she is looking at $100 for shipping!

How many orders did Sawt get?

Peace,

It's perfectly legal to have lasers in Hong Kong, and as far as I know lasers sent into the US from Canada go through the same Customs as from anywhere else. The odds are quite good usually, so I'm not too worried, but as I believe should be common sense I will not be held responsible for any lost items due to customs. I contacted the post office to see if items can be shipped registered in bulk because I could not find the service on their site, in which case I would be able to track them down if something went missing.

I would do anything to prove i'm legit, I have traded online for years and organised group buys on various other sites before. I've had a number of transactions with Bluefusion since I joined this site and bought some things from phoenix77.

If 50 pointers (or less, if items are bigger) is not reached the shipping would still only be 7~8 USD, registered airmail. Though its a big difference, it's still cheap.

Oooh. Okay. Yeah still cheaper. It'll be a while before it reaches 50 Lasers but count me in.

Count me for 3-4 Lasers.

You could also make a business out of this, you could offer the option of laser testing, quality control or something, to guarantee that people will be getting what they expect, without disappointment. *Because you're so close to DX, it would be allot easier to exchange a defected product then to ship it broken. *Just a thought *:-/

Hey guys.... Just a though....

DX ships for FREE... But as we all know the price we pay to DX for an item...actually
does include the shipping costs... :-?

If some one is going to pick up the items at DX... the costs of an item should be
lower since they (DX) don't need to spend money to ship it.... :

Yeah, but DX sells things so cheap. Does the extra ~$2.00 make much of a difference?

Just to clear this up: I asked DX if I could pick their stuff up at the warehouse before, and they absolutely will not let me. It still has to be shipped, but it only takes a few days (at most) rather than a week or more.

It won't be much faster for me to exchange items other than transit time, but of course if people specify I would be happy to test to see if anything is broken before I re-ship them. Unfortunately I don't have a LPM at the moment, so the only testing I could do would be visual comparison and just to see if it works at all or anything is physically broken.

Shipping would either be around $6 each if shipped separately, or $16 if shipped all together. Both of these prices is for registered airmail, which means it has a number in case it gets lost. I've never had anything get lost though, so I'm not too sure to what extent it actually helps to retrieve a package.

However, I'm not sure about these prices yet as I don't know the exact weight of the lasers.

I redid some calculations and I think we can get a price of around $5 per laser if 20 are ordered. As soon as we reach numbers like that, which might be sooner rather than later, I will start ordering them from DX. If anyone wants a bigger laser module, shipping still would be around these prices but we would need less orders to get the minimum weight.

I'll also try to stop by the post office on monday to ask some more questions about bulk mailing.
