Fight Shorts--Round Two

Hey Guys,
So the first round of fight short orders went along famously. However, a bunch of people missed out on the first round, and have since requested another go at it. Others loved their shorts so much they wanted to order more.

So here's how it's going to work. I obviously don't do this as my day job. I'm just here to help you fellow CF'ers out. That said, it did take quite a bit of time and energy to individually process your orders during round one. To make it worth my while I'm going to tack on a small processing fee, just like last time. This fee is to cover the PayPal fees and other miscellaneous fees that I incurred last time (gas, boxes, etc...). I'm sure you find all the prices fair.

I have set up a webstore so you can easily and conveniently place your order.

The store will be open until 7/14/2011. After this date, I will place one large order with my wholesaler then individually ship the orders to you. Since people will be ordering from all over the US, the shipping fees will vary. Thus I have taken an average and instituted a flat-rate shipping fee of $15.00. Depending on where you live, I will be shipping either UPS Ground or USPS Priority.

The USPS has a flat rate box for $5 shipped anywhere in the United States. That may save you some money on the shipping. International rate varies from $11.35 to $13.25.

Yeah, but the problem is when people order more than 1 pair of shorts. Last order people ordered 5+ pairs and they wouldn't fit in a small flat rate. They'd maybe fit in the large flat rate at 14.95, but might as well go UPS Ground at that the rate. Again, it's all an average in order to protect myself from a loss. Ask me how I know

Re: Fight Shorts--Round Two

Ryan to say I am interested in these fight shorts would be an understatement!

I love the looks of the camo ones and would like to purchase a few, In fact I will ask my best mate if he wants a couple pairs as well.

The only thing is since I live in Australia I was wondering how much postage down under would be?

Let me know how many you want, and I'll have a custom shipping quote put together. Shoot me an e-mail, I'll PM you.

Shouldn't this count as a commercial post and be against the Acceptable Use Policy? (wfs)

Maybe if I were selling my screen printing services. But this is just one member helping out others. I know a lot of people love working out in fight shorts and I have a wholesale account with one of the popular manufacturers. I'm not making money off of them, as everyone is getting them at wholesale cost plus a few dollars for shipping and processing fees. In fact, I lost a few bucks the last time we did this. If you would rather not participate in the deal, that's fine. But don't ruin it for others who are interested.

No one took issue with the first round:

Yeah man, he's providing a good service. I bought 3 pair the first time around. They're great for squatting! Good mobility.
