Jotamide, I'm guessing it'd be about $22.00 for the shipping.  You may do well to discard the boxes for the shoes as they add bulk/weight.  Thanks though!  Sorry for the delay, didn't see your post till now.

** GFC UPDATE COMING SOON **

You'll all be very happy to hear that I've heard your request and am programming in new changes to the upcoming update to GFC.  The biggest update will be that Shipping Buffers will now be optional.  This means that those of you who are very good at estimating shipping charges will no longer have to pay the extra $10.00 towards the shipping buffer and those of you who have credit on file with us can bypass it as well.  Please keep in mind that by not selecting the buffer you may be subjected to an updated invoice if your items weigh more than you originally anticipated.

 

This update should be finalized sometime in early March though it may appear on the site sooner than that :).  Any suggestions to improve the site are always welcome!

That sounds ok. One question though, my sister was wondering on whether you could just use the same shoebox to ship it over the border? For some reason she wanted to keep the box.

Hi Jotamide, If she wants to keep the box that's fine.  The actual shoe box only adds maybe $2.00 - $3.00 to the shipping cost, so if you want it by all means get it.  It was only a suggestion :).  Shipping in actual shoe boxes is not recommended as they tend to be flimsy.

Ok, then in that case just use whatever box you usually do. I think she just wants to make sure she gets the receipt? Anyways, I submitted a direct request on your website. Taxes in, it should be around $140. On the website they mention you can get free shipping with the code SHIP100, don't forget to use that please. :)

Hey Goomba, I placed my order around a week ago. Any status on the shoes? Have they arrived your way?

Hey Goomba, I was wondering if you do in store purchases in the US? (The store would be Best Buy)

Cool, Imma check in there. It says you might need more $ for shipping. What's your estimate?

Average Box, yes we do local pickups at Best Buy (nearest store is 06385, Waterford, CT).

 

Jotamide, I still haven't received the item.  I'm contacting their customer service to find out what the delay is, very sorry for that.  I'll get to the bottom of it ASAP.

 

plusgamer, we're located in the USA.  Connecticut to be exact :).

IMPORTANT MESSAGE

 

If you are a Package Forwarding (PF) user, please note that we will be changing the forwarding address as of 5/15/2014.  This will only affect you if you have our old address on file or plan to use it in the near future.  All new PF members will receive the new address through the site as per usual, but for older members I want to warn you NOT to ship to the old one if you think it'll be received after 05/15/2014.  The UPS Store we've used for 6 years is closing and we'll be moving to a new location.  Thanks guys :).

** GFC Will Be Down 05/20/2014 - 06/30/2014*

 

We will be temporarily closing the site from 05/20/2014 - 06/30/2014 in order to make some necessary changes to code, reorganize our office and unload overstocked merchandise. During this period we will continue to process existing orders (most will already have been shipped out by then), but we will not be taking on any new Direct Requests or Package Forwarding orders.

 

Also, very important to note for Package Forwarding users and GFC Premium Members: The UPS Store we've used for 6 years now will be officially closing and will no longer be accepting packages at the old address. The new address can be found in the Package Forwarding instructions page and it's important that you do NOT ship to the old Willimantic address. Packages that are sent there after 05/20/2014 will be refused by the UPS Store and sent back to the original sender.

 

Starting in July we will reopen the site as usual with new streamlined code and updates to existing sections. Thanks for your time, your support and your suggestions. We really apprecaite it =).

 

Sincerely,

JJ Parks ^_^

GFC

Where can I find the new address? I have a Premium Account (order #928 and I purchased a 12 month subscription on 6/24/2013). When I go to the package forwarding section I just see the W Thames St. address. Is that the correct address?

I've updated the shipping address now on the PF page so as long as you're registered as a Premium Member it should be working again :).  I'm working on a new GFC Estimator page that lets you put how many items you're ordering and the estimated weight and it calculates everything without having you enter all of the details.  This will also let me add a lot of new countries to the system for the auto-calculate features.

 

Thanks again guys.  If you need to contact me you should know the Email address by now, but if not it's JJPARKS AT IMPROCOMICS DOT ORG.  Cya soon!
