Default A CarolinaPBS News Post

Well guys I hate that I have to be posting this so soon. But..

Carolina PBS seems to not be as popular as I anticipated. I've now been "Live" for 2 weeks and guess how many orders I have had?

0. Zero. Cero. Negative. None.

I, and many others, can't understand why this is happening. But I do know one thing, if it keeps up..CarolinaPBS.com will not be here for long. I have business expenses to pay and when I'm not making money, they can't be paid..

So this is where you come in. This is a thread asking for YOUR help. I'm not saying to spam, no one likes spammers. Not to mention you'll get banned. But spread the word to your friends about the website. Especially you guys who have already purchased from me. I think (and have heard) that my buying experience more than speaks for itself. I have several repeat buyers who buy from me, but they alone cannot keep me going. I'm going to have to see some business or I may no longer be your friendly neighborhood dealer..

Also. I'd like to state that I will no longer be accepting PM orders. If you'd like to order, I'd prefer that you do it through the website order system. This allows me to keep much better records and allow your ordering process to run smoothly. You also have access to invoices, tracking, etc. all from the website. You'll notice that I charge a flat rate shipping fee. This is because I ship from all over the United States, mainly from New York, New Jersey, and Virginia. It is impossible to narrow down the cost of shipping per product from which distributor carries what, so for now the flat rate will have to do. I feel as if a 10 dollar shipping charge is not too much to ask. The only circumstance you should feel you need to PM me are in those that you are looking for a product you may not see on the site. Although we have tried to include every product I carry, we are human, and we may have missed something.

So, in closing, all I am asking for is support. Some of my pricing may not look like the best, but I, as a seller, have to meet certain requirements for advertised pricing. I also have to make profit on items. If another person is selling a ton cheaper than me (good example is the Promasters at Action Village) then chances are, I can't beat their price. If it's a 10 dollar difference then I guess the choice is yours of who to buy from.

Thanks alot for those of you who read this,

-durrell

Well said D, and you know that my orders would certainly go to you if I did not have my own shop.

However I have been suggesting you to everyone I have seen looking for gear and almost all of them say they will give you a shot, obviously either they dont give you a shot or they have yet to place their orders.

If I didn't quit playing paintball I would have bought a promaster, and my friend just bought a timmy, but is looking for an '06 ego, I'll be sure to send him a link to you're site and tell him to buy from you.

Yeah I know.

It seems most of the people I hear from are either impatient if I can't get back to them quick enough, or indecisive..and end up buying used. Or some or just play..dumb? if that's the word and go pay a ton more elsewhere just because. I just don't know. I'm at my wit's end here and can't understand why people aren't buying.

Well I might just have a couple of cases of paint sitting in my cart, I think that I will checkout as soon as I talk to a few people, I have an idea so I need to work some stuff out. (Your paint prices beat mine on average by 2 bucks. btw )
