I have two questions about shipping on this item for those running the show at Massdrop:
1. Combined shipping: If an individual (within CONUS) orders more than one pen (either more than Vista FP or more than one Vista writing implement, how is the (new) shipping cost calculated. I suppose I could just go through the process of ordering multiple pens, etc. and then cancelling them, but it's a question I (and others) have asked about other drops. Perhaps there is one good & clear answer out there. If so, I haven't seen it.
2. International shipping: This doesn't apply to me, but many posts have asked this. Massdrop acts as "group-buy" coordinator of sorts. Sometimes the items are shipped directly from the vendor or manufacturer. I've noticed that pens, etc, are often shipped from vendor/manufacturer to Massdrop and then from Massdrop to customer. Massdrop is in CONUS. For this order, is Massdrop obligated by the same shipping restrictions as the vendor?
In other words, can Massdrop have the items shipped to the warehouse and then reship them internationally?
This is a great price on the Vista and accessories. Much to my wallet's chagrin, I may yet bite. At this point, I think I'll have to look in a friend's couch to see if I muster the scratch. ;-)
Thanks, in advance, for your timely answers.
Not yet edited, but I'm sure I'll find some "Doh!" errors or better ways to phrase soon enough.
Its unfortunate, but some vendors specifically request Massdrop restrict the drops to US only as part of the restrictions imposed on them by the suppliers. Massdrop would be foolish not to oblige with those requests. Furthermore with some drops, the merchandise is shipped directly from the supplier and Massdrop is merely used as an advertising platform. Such instances would be if the item in question was bulky and heavy and a fair distance away, shipping that to Massdrop would be costly and shipping from the supplier's warehouse would be cheaper.
Proving support to international orders is quite frankly a pain in the arse shipping the item back forth over long distances and some view that focusing on just the US domestic market has a higher time vs profit ratio.
