the parcel is "now" awaiting custom clearence. I actually spoke to parcelforce yesterday and basically they said express 24 should have reached the UK in 24 hours, 48 max. i also spoke to hisoundUK after. what he told me was in essence, although he charged us all £5 for the shipping the cost of it is actually a lot more. if he sent each one seperately it would cost about £40 per parcel via express to each country. he has paid parcel force $120 for this next day shipping, and on top of that will pay between 6 and 10 pounds per parcel to ship it over. I did ask him why and he said;
right now it is not about making a profit for me but rather making a name for myself. Im really new in this bussiness and the market is already crowded as it is. I want top notch service to set myself apart and have really tried to offer that, however i have been let down by the shipping companies(and the weather). I had experience slow shipping last time with chinapost so opted to use the more expensive parcel force this time, which promised to get the parcel in 1 day. of course for this i have to spend a lot more than the £5 for shipping i have charged. In all each player is selling at a loss right now. Please dot take this as a complaint becuase i have chosen to take this loss myself but rather take it as me trying to explain that i really have tried my best to keep everything smooth. Personally this is my first venture into the bussiness world, and to make up for my lack of experience i have genuinely tried to keep everything as low cost as possible while keeping the standards high. I really believe in hisound as a company and so am willing to risk some money now to bring it to the world and show that i can provide a quality product and service. Fortunately the shipping should still be quicker than a normal £5 shipping would give, but i was hoping for you guys to get the pacakges 5 days after them having shipped and think to yourself "that was damn quick". hopefully i wont be effected negatively in the feedback as i did mention it was a preorder and that the shipping could take a long time, but it may not work out like that. Heres to hoping everyone gets their products very quickly now.
i for one dont mind waiting a little extra time and do hope this guy doesnt end up paying for parcelforces incompetence.
anyway the tracking now say this so it shouldnt be too long at all.
