Tapeworm, no worries brother.
All, I spoke with the business owner and have communicated to the Forum. With regard to payments in this specific Group Buy, the manufacturer does not have a convenient method of accepting individual payments for single-run orders. The conversation clarified the issue and its all good. This makes this a non-standard Group Buy.
Posted prices are:
$85.00 raw shipped in the cont U.S.
$99.50 powdercoated shipped in the cont U.S.
The Group Buy OP (Tapeworm) has successful purchasing history with the business.
We need to clarify shipping from the manufacturer. Will the manufacturer ship to each individual member or to the OP (Tapeworm)? In either event, is shipping still included? I gather shipping from the manufacturer to Tapeworm is included. What about from Tapeworm to each buyer?
If the price includes all shipping to each buyer, then it is approved to proceed. This means Tapeworm would receive paypal payments from members, place the order with the manufacturer and pay for it in-full, and track production. If he also receives all items then he will also ship each paid buyer's items asap without added cost to buyers. In the event any member does NOT pay the OP then the OP can make it known in this thread (with no time-delay requirement) that the un-claimed parts are available for sale inside this Group Buy thread for the same price/terms.
>>> If the price does NOT include all shipping then lets figure that out before proceeding. <<<
