Hey Goomba,
Enslaved arrived a week or so ago, it looks great sitting on my backlog!

I was wondering if you still do ebay.com orders on auctions and if so how would I go about doing that?

** GYROS STATUS UPDATE **

Just wanted to let you guys know we're experiencing the most packages we've ever received. This week alone we've received almost 200 so you can imagine this will likely be another week or two before we get everything straightened out. I've added about 70% of the orders to the GYROS page but you'll notice many have blank status updates. As we open the packages and sort them we're updating the GYROS and sending out invoices. I'm trying not to estimate the weights because it'll resolve in more back and forth, so doing it this way leaves no room for error. Also, a TON of you guys ordered multiple items that came separately in different packages from Amazon so tracking them down and seeing which orders belong to which people is a bit of a trick, but we're slogging through it.

Like I said, we'll do our best to keep up with the orders as best we can. Thanks. Just keep an eye on GYROS and your inboxes :) Thanks guys. Off to bed tomorrow. Processing all day tomorrow after 12:00 noon EST. Cya!

dancrane212, we sure do ^_^ eBay orders work two ways:

1) You can order with DR service. Just put in a Direct Request and put the MAX bid you want to buy the item including the shipping charged to ship to USA from the eBay seller. So if you want to bid $20.00 max and the seller charges $5.00 put in "$25.00" as the item price. If we lose the item we'll refund you 100% but if we win the item for less, we'll apply the extra funds towards your shipping to Canada and such. If an item is a Buy it Now item, then just include the BIN price plus the shipping to USA as the item price.

2) You can order the item yourself and ship to our Package Forwarding (PF) address.

If you need more info just let me know :) Thanks!

just e-mailed you concerning the ancient pf order + the two new ones, sorry for the ancient one.

edit: and I'm an idiot should be cheaper to send together, all though duties may be a problem.

I'm glad the book is great; Starcraft 2's CE book showed me what I had been missing out on. I'm still kicking myself for not picking it (ME's book) up for $30 at launch :bomb:

Anyways, if (more likely when) I'm outbid can I switch the order for one off the Amazon marketplace? There are a few that are 39.99 with 3.99 shipping so it comes out to be around the same and they all seem to be about the same quality (minor shelf wear).

*EDIT

Strike that, I ordered one myself once I noticed that 2 of the little that were there for 39.99 had been sold in the last few hours and I had been outbid by $20. I feel that the announcement of 3 had something to do with this :roll:

Anyways I'll fill out a PW form tonight.
Thanks,

Hey Goomba,
Know you were swamped with Black Friday orders and the like. I wanted to see whether you received two Amazon.com orders from me, expected to arrive last Monday, December 6? Feel free to PM me or e-mail me at my gmail address if you need any more details.

Thanks Goomba!

There should also be an extra Animaniacs set that needs to be returned, and an extra TMNT Blu Ray set that you said you would like to keep =)

This should be it, I don't think I have anything else scheduled to go out to you until Jan/Feb, so we should be good with you breaking that down into 2-3 packages and shipping it out at your convenience =D

Hey Goomba, I ended up ordering the earpads I inquired about before, using the Direct Request method. I think I was supposed to receive a confirmation email for my order (not the paypal payment one), but I didn't get one as of yet.

The order # is 559774495

Thanks appreciated as always!

Hey Goomba,

I went to a slight extreme here because I didn't want to bug you over something totally unfounded, but since you don't use dates on GFC, I used prior CAG posts to find my relative position within the orders.

Believe me, I don't enjoy bugging you at all, but out of all the items on the "shipped" page, mine should predate ALL but the top 5-10. It was a PF order, but I even went to the extent of using Amazon Prime in order to get it to you quickly, as the order was 9 days before Black Friday (and as such, should also beat that particular rush, even though I understand you must be swamped - though probably can't even fathom just how bad it really is). The point though is that there should be very little reason for it to be affected by the BF orders, especially when I didn't order a single thing during that time or contribute to that particular mass of orders in any way, you know what I mean?

I have ordered quite a bit from you in the past but I don't expect that fact to get me any special treatment. I just hope that it's not alternatively causing anything to be delayed in order to give new (and potential repeat customers) faster service at my expense. Especially with the simple fact that I got a more than comfortable enough margin on BF that by all rights it should suggest you haven't even BEGUN to deal with BF/CM orders, though that's clearly not the case.

I really hate getting on your back about things but this was a Christmas gift for a relative 6 hours away that I'm going to be with during the holidays. I've been stuck without a computer for the last little while and have resorted to typing all of this on my phone because I don't know if there's even enough time left. I'm not sure why this has happened but hopefully it was just an error. I really need you to look into this immediately and hopefully deal with it immediately. A simple PS3 game I got a great deal on and was hoping to have well in advance, very inexpensively... well, I have no idea how its going to turn out now, and for the first time in all my GFC orders I am genuinely frustrated.

Anyway, the game is Heavy Rain and the order number is 1214342180. I hope you will promptly look into it and just as swiftly handle it. I have a Nexus One Android phone, so (push) gmail is a fairly fast way of contacting me, but obviously you have my phone number too (or at least HAD, when you tried to call me heh), and obviously if it's something that requires a bit of back and forth, nothing beats voice communication. But responding on the forums alone will waste a fair bit of time.

Anyway, typing such a long post on a phone's touchscreen keyboard is borderline torture and I've probably communicated MORE than everything necessary, so I'll leave it at this. I hope to hear from you shortly.

Love,
Mat

Can someone enlighten me on how this works? I've tried reading the site but I'm a little confused.

Lets say I wanted to order something from an American website that only accepts american forms of payment and whatnot, and I live in Canada, what do I do?

Do I fill out a direct request? If that's the case, I just put in my shipping information/name, and then link to the item? Then what happens? Is it bought for me and then I'll have to pay through paypal whatever the charge? Just not sure how this process works exactly...

Finally have a day off from work today (well technically not today since I worked 4AM-10AM at the casino) but I'm off tomorrow so that means I have tonight and all day tomorrow (till 7PM that is) to process orders. And man do I have a ton of new packages in to process.

I will be going through all your comments one by one individually so don't think I'm ignoring you :) It's just been busy with all the holiday stuff at work and of course GFC packing ^_^.

pyrox4, I'll answer yours first though since you're new to our service. If some site requires American form of payment you can use our DIRECT REQUEST service to have us order for you. You pay us with Paypal and then we use our credit card to order the item, have it shipped to us and then repackaged and shipped to you. Couldn't be simpler :) So yes, just put your info in, pay through the site (it'll include all the service charges and such if you estimate shipping weight properly) and we take care of the rest. We'll Email you when your items are in and when they ship out. If any extra shipping is due we'll send you an invoice. Thanks again for your interest in GFC :) Happy Holidays!

Hey Goomba, I just wanted to let you know that my Forza 3 Ultimate edition arrived today. I realize I was a little impatient after getting caught up in the Black Friday volume but thanks for responding quite promptly to all my questions, especially as a new user to the service. Due to the lower price and no taxes from Amazon, even after the service/shipping fees it still ended up cheaper than copies up here, if you can find it. I look forward to using your service again and will spread the word to others I know.

Cheers!

Thanks a bunch IronManD. No problem. I understand it's a bit frustrating to be new to a service and not receive an immediate response. Plus, the holiday delays are just something inevitable with my little company as it's just me (and occasionally my wife) processing and shipping. Between two "real" jobs it means I only have a few hours a day to devote to GFC but that'll be changing in April once I get laid off from my University of job of nearly 6 years, so GFC will be a full-time day job for me. That's when I really intend to do a lot with the site and who knows..maybe I'll even have enough money to hire some help :)

I really appreciate your follow up though. Thanks for letting me know my service still works even if it's a big jet-lagged during the big holidays ^_^. Things will be running quite smoothly in January again.

Also it's USPS right?! Hope so.

pyrox4, you did everything correctly for the most part but you did miss one thing...there is 6% Sales Tax on all sales items from Best Buy and all retail stores in my state. So that'll add 6% to your total. I'll try to order the first two items and then send you an invoice for the remaining funds to buy the third. Thanks again :) Really appreciate the order!

Hey, yeah I knew there was something like that missing. Appreciate the fact that you'll get the first 2 first, since I think there is a 2 limit at one time anyway, lol.

But yeah just let me know how much is the difference afterward and I'll pay it as soon as I see it (also I'm assuming I would just directly paypal the difference without filling out any form?)! Thanks again for doing this, appreciate it. Happy holidays to you too.


EDIT: just saw your email, sent the money, sorry bout that!
