sounds like you're set for a little while!

very early on, we already knew that Marco was looking for a North American vendor to sell both Nuavia and the new line of soaps to help lower costs for the consumer. shortly after I announced the soap collaboration, TheHandleBar starting selling the Nuavia soap. we knew once that happened, he'd want to sell the pure20 soaps as well - we even discussed it.

Marco is selling the soap as well as Gareth in the United States. I'm not sure why this is an issue. I even outlined this in my original post. Marco has the soaps for sale first because he's the creator of the soap...I think this is probably common when an artisan is selling as soap directly on their site as well as sending supply to a vendor.

I think we should just set up a Soap-01k and you could take my pre-tax dollars Smile

Thanks as always Gareth for going above and beyond brother!

Possibly you didn't get what I mean in my post. I know very well that there is a vendor in the States that sells the Pannacrema products. I know also that Pannacrema sells their products directly. This happens from the very beginning. My first purchase from them was years ago.

What about the European members? Do they have to pay the expensive shipping for a European product? Is it better for them to order the soap from the American vendor? Do they have to buy 3 or 4 of them? Did you think about it when you made possible this LE offering?

I know that when I order a soap from an American artisan I have to pay a fair amount of money for the shipping cost. There is no other way. But, when the same happens with a European product doesn't sound nice to me.

Just a few thoughts. It's not an issue my friend.

you do have a European supplier, his shipping costs are just high, from what you're saying. I cannot control this nor can we settle every nuance around the world before a product is released. the laws differ between countries and how the regulations work. even to send an item from the US to Canada or Canada to the US is expensive...and sometimes it's closer for me to send something to some parts of Canada than it is to send it to California, yet it's 3-4X more expensive.

Looks like pre-order will be an option, most likely going live this afternoon. I will also open up pre-order for Nuávia Verde as well since pre-orders sold out immediately, as did remaining stock once it arrived. This will give folks a better chance to nab both (if necessary) and receive free shipping on their order in the U.S.
