yea that would be great, then we can have a section on the wiki where there would be alot of countries and the people in each country can then discuss about the dates and make an agreement<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">

Hello,<br><br>before some days Hans van der Merwe asked, if it is possible to do group purchases (in South Africa).<br>Unfortunately he got no answer, so I'd like to ask again.<br>I'm from germany and I think there are many people here who like to buy a GTA01 device.
<br>If everyone orders a single device it are $20 to $40 for the shipment PLUS 19% VAT on the device INCLUDING the shipment.<br>Let's assume you order a device for $300, shipment is expensive with $40 this are $340, plus VAT it are $405.
<br>Now let's assume there are 4 people who want to have a device, the package is still small enough for $40.<br>So we pay ((($300*4)+$40)*1.19)/4 what makes $370 (+$5 for forwarding the packet inland).<br>So everybody could save at least $30, maybe more if it would be possible to send bigger packets.
<br><br>It would be nice if someone at FIC (Sean? :) ) could tell us if it would be possible to take group orders and how many devices could be shipped at once.<br>Knowing that would be great, because groups could plan the purchase before the 9th.
