    Question for Plazan
    Neil,

    Any news on shipping alternatives yet? Many other merchants waive shipping costs for orders of $??? or more. Could Plazan do something similar, let's say if people order $100 or more they get free shipping? That way they can order more products which would help with your bottomline. If $100 isn't enough, make it higher? I've had orders with Plazan for a lot more than $100. They were probably trying to make it worth paying the shipping charges.

    Just a thought...

    Shipping from Cyprus is outrageously expensive, Catwoman. We discussed this with Neil when I was there a month ago... I am sure Neil will come up with a solution on larger orders though.

    Neil seems intent on avoiding this question. This happened in another thread when this came up. I assume that is their way of saying nothing is going to change.

    Actually...
    I don't think Neil or Uliss are trying to avoid the question at all. Neil was pretty up front in the other thread about this issue and he said that they were looking for alternatives.

    I realize this isn't going to happen overnight. When you ship products across the world it's going to cost money. Unless people are specifically looking to buy Plazan products, they'll go elsewhere to buy at cheaper prices or at least lower shipping fees. I know I did.

    Even if all products went up a buck or two to be able to offer free shipping on larger orders it wouldn't hurt anyone.

    Since the high shipping cost was a problem for me and kept me from ordering from Plazan, then I'm sure others are seeing it the same way too. I'm just trying to come up with ideas that would help us all and result in more sales.

    I have a trip to Cyprus to win!

    you always want to think the worst
    i do try to be here as many hours a day as possible.
    but i cant always.
    and try to remember the time diffirence. 10hrs.

    ok. i have spoke to uliss about this, we are in the process of fixing this.
    though i did get an email from uliss the other day asking me if ithought he was an octipus meaning he aint got enough arms. to do what i already give him.

    i would rather not discuss this on the boards,
    but shipping costs will be lost.
    you will all have to re-do your datafeeds with the new prices etc, etc.
    but remember we only have 50 products, so it wont take long.

    please have patients my wonderfull people.
    uliss will start it next week,
    after he has finished the other 10 million jobs i have given him


    we will also have another press release going out in a couple of days,
    they always give us a boost in sales.

    thanks geno
    for chipping in when i was`nt here.

    Thanks Neil and Uliss for addressing this issue quickly. Although a shipping free of $24 is more easily accepted on a $250 order, when someone is looking to buy just one product that only costs $27 or $29 that's where they might be turned off by the extra charges. That was my problem - shipping was almost as much as the product itself.

    Even increasing your prices by a few bucks here and there and removing shipping fees should improve conversions and help us all make more sales.

    On another note...

    How does the contest work Neil? It says every 6 months - does that mean January and June? It would also be nice to know where we all stand for this so we have a good idea as to whether we're even in the race or if we just have a little more work to do to make it. Could you post or ask Uliss' 9th arm to send an affiliate newsletter , maybe on a monthly basis with the top 5 sales or those that are very close together without naming anyone? From that we can figure out where we fit in.

    Thanks much Neil. That contest sure was an incentive for me even if I never win it!
