GamesForCanada.com (GFC) - Friendly Package Forwarding Service for Canada & The World
Posted 17 February 2012 - 03:33 PM
Tetsugen, I'm planning to charge $10 a month for premium membership which will give you $1 for all service charges on items for 30 days. Weight/Value charges will still be applied but all standard service charges will be $1.00. If you shop multiple items in a month then it'll be worthwhile to go premium. We'll also have a yearly membership at a discounted price as well. All of these are optional though.
fuzzbunker, it takes 10-15 days on average to most cities in Canada. And no, we use UPS for picking up the packages but ship via USPS so it should go directly to your home address that you provided. Hopefully you'll have it soon .
z7enz, we're doing another UPS pickup today as well as a big GYROS update. Take a look on GYROS today and it should be all up to date.
Klutchkilla, I removed all the excess packaging and got it down to 4 pounds for you. If you don't have Paypal we can send you a link to pay via Google Checkout if that works for you, or we can submit a link for you to pay through our site as you did initially. Let me know what you'd like to do.

I just received the packages.
I just sent you an e-mail regarding a couple of missing items and a couple of minor issues; please let me know once you have read it. Thanks.
Also, just PMed you because you never responded.

OK guys, here it is. All of the information you need on the GFC Premium BETA program. I finished the majority of the coding today and will be launching the official BETA on Monday. This is how it's going to work:
1) I will post a link here and only here for the first week or two. The page listed will not be available on the website to those out of the loop, because I want to make sure it launches without any bugs.
2) The link here will allow you to sign up with one of two options: $10 USD for one month premium membership or $100 USD for one year premium membership (essentially giving you two months free).
3) In order to be a premium member you will need to be logged into the site when you purchase it and your premium membership will be applied immediately to your account. The membership will last as long as you sign up for. At the moment we will only allow for one a maximum one year membership but may extend that in the future.
4) As a premium member you will only pay $1.00 for the individual item service charges instead of the normal $2.00. You will still have to pay for weight/value surcharges but you will have an option to wave the shipping buffer.
5) In addition as a premium member you be able to pre-load Canuck Bucks/Service Charge Credits directly on the site which will minimize any handling charges. In March once the site launches the program officially you will also have an option to add Amazon Gift Cards to your account for use on the site.
This is all very early on, but again I'll be posting an official BETA link on Monday in this thread. If you'd like to join, we'd be happy to have you . If not, then don't worry the site will work exactly the same as it does now. We appreciate your support ^_^

I sent you an e-mail to both your addresses and haven't heard anything back yet. Just wondering if you got my DR on 20 Feb, I haven't seen anything on the Gyros page.

I am receiving Emails no problem but a few people have mentioned they didn't get my responses. I had a host update with Host Gator this week which seemed to back up some mails, but that should be resolved by now. Feel free to email me at my Gmail in the meantime if you haven't heard from me on my normal Emails.
Alright, well I never received a reply from you. =(
Have you or are you going to be sending my stuff out soon to ensure it arrives by the 5th for me?

Gsrce, sorry you didn't get my response. I replied to ask you if it was alright for me to mail it out early. If I ship Priority Mail it only takes 3-4 days to get to California. Let me know, thanks!
Yup, go ahead and mail it out whenever.
Thanks again =)

OK guys, nothing too fancy yet as this is a BETA but I'm happy to say that our GFC Premium Membership program has officially started as of today. If you'd like to try it out, just head on over to our GFC Store to this custom item (sorry for the lack of style lol, I'll make it look better on the real site) and buy a one month subscription for $10.00. The discounts are listed in the product description and we'll be adding new benefits to it very soon. If you buy several items a month you'll save quite a bit with this program. Please let us know if you have any issues with ordering.
Also, please note at the moment we have to manually enter you as a premium member so please allow 6-8 hours of processing time as we may be away from the office when you join.
Without further ado, here's the link: http://gamesforcanad...products_id=194
Thanks again guys! Again, in March this will launch officially and it will be handled on the website itself. Enjoy!

The truth is GFC is really a labor of love for me as technically speaking I haven't turned a profit in the 4 years I've been doing it. That's not an issue for me in the meantime because there's definitely a lot of potential revenue and growth in the business model, but unless I can seriously ramp up my customer base or branch off with some alternative revenue streams, I'm looking to break even at best with my current services.
