5.7x28 case gauge

Post by JoJo » 27 Feb 2012, 08:05

I know that delivery is stalled while you wait on the engraving contractor to follow through. In the meantime, can I buy one without the engraving?
If so, I need to order some other items at the same time.

Thanks

Call me cheap because I am but $14.16 to ship a one ounce, non ammunition object, seems a little silly and a lot excessive.....

It is, but if you order it with ammo or other equipment (can always use back up springs & feed lip protectors) it spreads out the cost a little :?:

I don't know how many times I have explained the shipping.... :facepalm:

We DO NOT have any control over the shipping charges as we are a Small Company and DO NOT get the HUGE Shipping Discounts the BIG Companies like Amazon do.

Don't trust the USPS as they lose stuff and take 6 months to "investigate" before refunding us.

You should explain the shipping as many times as necessary to make the sale. That is what makes small business grow. Your explanation is good enough for me, and has made the difference between an empty cart and a completed sale. :thumb:

Sometimes us cheap guys need a gentle nudge and having an alternative communication channel sure helps, thanks.

The USPS has cost us 7 grand + is lost shipments. Plus pissed off customers who did not get their stuff.

EA,
It is posted that you only ship FedEx or UPS but it is not posted as to why unless someone uses the search function and you know how difficult & complicated that is.

If done right, you could do it as an FAQ on the EA shipping page, and paint the USPS as a poster child for the problems that this country is facing.

I think they meant including some details as to why.

If I would of seen a simple statement saying something to the effect of " Due to USPS losing shipments and not meeting EA standards of quality, we ONLY ship via FedEx & UPS."

I would never of questioned this in the first place. In this crappy economy whereas some companies are squeezing customers for every cent possible, as a consumer, you have to ask questions. Once I found out that the motive was quality of service versus profit, I had no problem completing my sale. I concur that an updated FAQ may clarify this for the consumer and give the staff a lot less headaches and maybe increased sales.

Looking forward to doing more business with your company.

There are go/no go gauges available at Elite Ammunition. I am sure they will go fast.

Jay -

Are you all having another batch of Go/No Go gauges manufactured? If so, do you have an ETA?

Thanks!

Hmmm. "The product you selected is currently unavailable."
As Jay asked, do you have an ETA? (Not being pushy, just wondering approximately when I should check back on your web site to try to order one)
