Default personally how do you feel ordering stuff through an email/phone.

wieghing every available option, how do you guys view ordering over the phone/email in regards to GW merchandise?

(ie: if you were going to order at the warstore, or gorilla tactics)

do you hate it? do you avoid certain places because of slow response times? please tell me more, I would love to learn more about how you guys view the system.

I *tried* to place orders via email and phone with gorilla tactics over a week ago, and an order with another place over two...both were ignored. Gorilla has some severe issues with keeping contact info up to date as well.

Now, the warstore has always been good to me, and Ive done ebay a fair bit, and bitzbox as well(uk, but relatively low shipping). Those have been good to me. I've never had an attempted scam or anything, though frankly, with paypal, Im not worried about that.

Go for it, unless its an item you MUST have today.

I would love to know more.

Because technically, if I were so inclined to register now, I could get going with what I have now.

but it would mean a order on demand mail order service.

I just like to know if you hate it/like it if the right issues are addressed. Ie timely email/phone responses and a quick effortless transaction safely over paypal.

i personally don't order over the phone, but e-mails fine, i think it is good if the place you are ordering from has a comfirmation e-mail, and fast response (even an auto-reply to show that they got your order is better then nothing)

As long as response times are quick, I see. That should be feasible.

Default Re: personally how do you feel ordering stuff through an email/phone.

I haven't done either and let me tell you why.

Phone: I hate phones. I only use my cell for last-resort and to tell time. Because of this, I don't look to phone as my first resort.

Email: I haven't heard a lot of "success" stories with them, I guess. I mean, I'm sure it's done but no one's ever recommended it to me so meh.

Hope that helps you. ^^;;

I tend to prefer phone. But if you do email, I suggest a nice little box on your website, it just throws me off to be typing an email in my own thing to address x.

I would most certainly do both, but I would rather have all three.

In relevance to law all I have seen is GW citing people on IP, in truth that IP is another way around anti trust laws, monopolizing (an attempt to anyway) the availability of a shopping cart to people.

In retrospect online businesses that have catered through a mail order service, also have some releases on eBay as well. Meaning simply that income is not at its best, or it could be better.

The relevance of people protecting themselves, is just that, protection. All it takes is a frivolous lawsuit to rack up fees to close down a business. For a beginner that is daunting.

but this is economics, people don't play nice.

Im good with emails, and paypal is my method of choice...as long as I get a response back in a coupla days after I try to initiate an order, Im happy. They don't need to have everything in stock all the time or anything ridiculous, I just want to know that my order has been received, and get a confirmation on the $$ total before I start sending out large amounts of money, yknow?
