i absolutely love this... just whats holding me back is the shipping cost... $22 dollars shipping a $15 dollars item? Maybe its a mental thing.. but i just can't bring myself to join the drop.. : (
1. Prices of shipping are solely based on weight, not value of what's in the package.
2. I paid $35 shipped for each of my mm300 Corsair mats I've had and used for years. They're smaller and they're not customised, I paid $38 for one off of @mgsickler directly.
It's a mental thing.
To add to the first point of Vigrith's post, mats of this quality are easily $40-50. mgsickler is easily one of the best members of this community when it comes to being fair and getting things done and that combined price is worth paying for a quality product that will last you years. That being said, it's just a novelty addition and isn't necessary so it's up to your justify the spent cash.
If he really wanted, he could have charged $40 and free shipping. I have a feeling that a lot of people would have been very okay paying that price. However, if someone has to pay $20 shipping on a $20 item, they seem to freak out. It's a completely mental thing.
Thanks for your reply. I think your post did a good job in helping me see this from another perspective. I do agree that if the price was higher and the shipping cost was lower, i would have jumped straight in. As you said, i believe the price he set is fair and the mental hurdle was due to the price difference on first glance.
I think i'll join the drop now. Just torn between apollo and ares. Cheers!
You're welcome. I went for Ares myself. Don't have Godspeed but Ares looks pretty sick. Also got Laser.
Just buy 10 of them and then the shipping per item goes way down! Then resell them to people in your country. Kind of a joke but kind of serious
Exactly. Item listed 30 usd with 6 usd shipping I should buy it. 15 usd instead of 30 but 21 usd shipping. No way.
