I actually do appreciate the advice, though $100 shipped would put me in the red, especially with ebay and paypal fees, I actually paid $85 for this. Do you think people might prefer to buy Mathmos Astro Bottles for like $65.00 (buy it now) plus shipping from Florida, it is still a savings over getting them from the UK, and they do fit well in the Century Bases. I myself do not really like the Mathmos bases anyway. What do you think? I know people want these lamps and I'm willing to try and meet the need, but I will not do it if Im going to lose money. Just tryin to spread the love in the states ya know.
I think that is a good price for the bottles. You might want to use the flat rate shipping charges. I think you can fit the bottles in the box just fine. Might want to check that though. Flat rate drops shipping to 12/15 bux roughly.
Yeah, stay away from ebay if you can. If you plan on selling them, offer them here to get your name out and such. Will save a ton on fees. Thats why I have not sold on ebay in forever.
For a globe, your looking at $80 shipped. Roughly. Not a bad price at all. Are you going to be getting in the blue/blue globes?
Yeah, I will get the Blue/Blue, actually all 6 colors. Maybe it would be nice if some people here would tell me which colors to get, because I can not really tell what would be popular. How do I sell on here, it doesn't seem as secure to me. Maybe Cash on Delivery Services? I don't know. I also have full lamps in Violet/Red, Violet/Orange, Yellow/Red, Another Clear/White and Blue/Green. I am just probing ebay first with the one Clear/White to see what happens ya know.
I think I got it figured out, I can just use PayPal still and accept money orders and personal checks. I can offer these here directly to avoid ebay fees at least then I can sell them for less and pass the savings on. It really depends on how many I can sell at once. I do not really want to guess what people want so what I will do is ask you to please tell me which colors you would want, If I can get a number of gooheads to tell me what color they would want, I might be able to offer them for 60.00 each instead of the previously stated 65.00, plus shipping from florida using the flat rate box as you have suggested, and I would combine shipping for multiple bottles purchased to save you even more money, how does this sound? Maybe I should start a new thread with this offer and request for info from everyone. My goal would be 50 bottles between everyone, If I can at least get close to 50 requests, then I could just go for it and sell the rest on ebay, even with the damn fees ( I will just have to increase the price to 65.00 for ebay I guess)
Please tell me if you think that deal is worth it to you, and I will get the process started.
