The last time I bought stuff from GHI it arrived an impressive three days later… all the way from the USA to NZ. It was great… but the courier service charges for my order was also quite high.
There have been a few times since then where I felt that I just need a specific cheap module or accessory, but then the thought of the high postage costs stops me from ordering again. I keep promising myself I’ll wait until I need something big again before making a next order.
Recently I ordered stuff from Seeed and was surpized that if I choose a much slower delivery time, then the postage costs is free!
I want to suggest to GHI to also consider an alternative mailing option to the high cost courier service. Quite often for something small it is no problem to wait three weeks. Not sure if the other non -USA based Gadgeteer developers would agree with me, but I definitely think it would be a big benefit.
