What does this mean?
The Supply Store as you know it will not change, although new products in more different languages will appear over time. But if you hail from Kuwait, South-Africa or Belgium, your BookCrossing supplies will not be sent all the way from the USA anymore. They will be sent from within the EU. In fact, many of them will also be produced there (even though that may in some cases be more expensive for us).
So what changes can you expect to see?
- First of all, lower shipping costs for everyone outside of the USA.
- Secondly, EU members can now be sure that their supplies are not coming from outside the EU, and will not be held up or taxed by customs, no matter how much they order at a time.
- Thirdly, many shoppers outside the USA will now receive their order faster.
And let's not forget that shorter shipping routes also means less fuel and energy spent on getting those labels and stickers to your doorstep. That's better for the planet and for all of us.
All in all, we feel that the opening of the European branch is a good reason to celebrate. And in order to share the joy, here is our special offer, valid for a limited time:
For all orders made before or on July 15, shipping will be only 2 dollars.
Don't forget: as always, ordering supplies for a value of $ 30 or more will earn you a month of Wings.
