Topic: international customers and many limitted offerings! (6 msgs / 217 lines)
1) From: =?iso-8859-1?Q?Claus_Th=F8gersen?=
Hi,
I am one of the active European members. I know that there are other people 
living in Europe who are not on the list but use SM for green beans.
to keep down extra costs for shipment, vat, and extra charges we have to 
order 40 pounds a standard box size that gives the lowest price for 
shipping.
The problem is that it seems as if more and more new coffees from Sm these 
days are  very  small only a few bags,  and therefore limitted to 1 maybe 2 
pounds. A limit that makes it harder to get these coffees if you order 1 box 
for several people, like I do.
If the small size offerings are going to be more prevalent from SM, I would 
really like a way to order, but have the order held back at SM so i can add 
some of these coffees that are gone a few days after they are posted to 
sm.com, and have the package shipped when it has reached the size that makes 
the  shipment costs reasonable.
It will of course give the SM staff more work to do, and there should be an 
extra charge for such a service, but I would really like to at least have an 
opportunity to consider all  these unique coffees.

Claus,
We've lost an overseas delivery option too. The US Post Office eliminated
parcel post -- though I'm not sure I'd use that for beans. I'm sure other
shipping providers will up their prices now too.

Hi Mike,
I am not sure if  you mean the cheapest way of shipping, where a package w =
could  take 6 to 8 weeks to get from SM headquarters to Denmark!
I have tried it one time, but I  just do not have the patience for that kin=
d =
of snaille package deliviry.
the interesting thing is that with the current rates, UPS expedided world =
wide is the cheapest way of shipping at least if we buy more than 30 pounds=
. =
Maybe even with much smaller orders like 5 or 10 pounds, I have not checked =
that. If that is the case my problem is solved! I doubt it,  I do not think =
international shipment costs are that low even with small packages  e.g. 5 =
to 10 pounds.

Claus,
Yes -- that's the option. Slow but it was a very inexpensive option.

Claus:
Perhaps if you guys formed a "club" so to speak and sent  private message to
Tom or Maria you could buy a few extra
of the 1 pound only; maybe they would give your group the option of 6 pounds
or more between members.
