Title: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: Graham Lee on July 12, 2010, 04:18:47 PM
We have had a few parcels go astray lately with the royal mail first class postal service that never guarantees when they will deliver, some parcels get to there destination next day and some take up to five days. So we have decided from today that all royal mail post will go signed for which will give us a tracking number, this service is more expensive and we may need to increase our postal charges to cover the cost but the benefit of knowing exactly where a parcel is at any given time is worth it.
Apologies to those that have had to wait for their parcels, we still have some that may well be lost now7/8 days and still no sign, I feel a claim or two coming on.

Unfortunately we have had to increase our postage rates to Northern Ireland due to the extra charges made by the courier and the cost of royal mail first class recorded.
If anyone wishes to use parcelforce 3/5 days I can post out at the old charges but there will be no insurance cover as the items are not tracked.

Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: Graham Lee on November 28, 2010, 07:27:10 PM
We have changed the 48 Hr express shipping on both sites to just express shipping, this is mainly due to royal mail taking anything up to 8 days to deliver a first class signed for package. Lyn and I try to offer an excellent speedy service and if we are about a courier parcel will go out the same day if the order is in by 2.oo pm as the deadline for the courier is 2.30 p.m and a first class signed for can be ordered sometimes as late as 4.30 and we will try to catch the post the same day, but once we have posted the order out we are then in the hands of a third party.
Some people have been ordering late on a Saturday night and expecting the parcel Monday, so the 48 HR has caused a few problems with bank holidays, weekends etc when we are just unable to post out due to post office and courier being closed.
When we are away at a care & share day/event we sometimes do have to wait 24 hrs for the parcel to be posted but I do inform you ASAP via email if this is the case. With Christmas coming up parcels will probably take slightly longer with Royal Mail so please allow some extra time to receive your order.
Ideally we would like to move over to just a courier service but this would make the minimum postage charge £10, but at least we are guaranteed to get a next day delivery and as yet the courier has never let us down.
We have no intention of offering any less of a service and will do our best to help out to get an order to you ASAP.

It has just been confirmed today that there will be a price increase coming when the new order of Sempertex balloons make it to the UK.
Some product will be going up by as much as 35% and we anticipate making changes to the site around the middle of March.
Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: Martin on March 01, 2011, 09:26:12 PM
I feel an order coming on pre-mid March Graham!

Presumably it is not 260s increasing by 35%?
Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: Graham Lee on March 01, 2011, 10:20:37 PM
The 260 price at the moment should be £2.95 + VAT, the price I have been told they are going up to is £3.99 + VAT

Royal mail costs go up from Monday, at the moment we have just altered one shipping price on the Sempertex site which was the £6 rate which used to be up to £24.99,
this has now been reduced to £19.99.
We are hoping that will be the only slight increase we have to make on either site.

Unfortunately it's time for the price increase on the Sempertex site, if you are quick you can save a few pennies as I will be changing the 260 price last.
I have already changed the price for Blue, White and Bubblegum Pink as I'm out of stock of these and any bought will be at the new price.

Danny,

I would claim to have received an even more remarkable service. Emailed Graham my order and the balloons arrived before I had even paid for them! I don't even bother looking at other balloons sites anymore unless Graham doesn't stock the item and even then I give him a chance to go find it for me.

We should all be supporting the smaller businesses especially when the person running it gives so much back to his customers.

Keep up the good work Graham.

Post by: Graham Lee on July 29, 2011, 07:41:08 PM
I have just spent the day altering all the prices on the Qualatex website, we still sell all our product at less than wholesale prices and have just added free shipping to all orders over £150 except for Northern Ireland which has a small surcharge due to expensive courier and royal mail charges, £50 for £150-199.99 and £7.50 over £200.
Fingers crossed there are no mistakes although we did find that for the past year we have been over charging via the website only for 160/260 metallic so these prices have come down.

Any questions then please fire away

Good old Royal Mail, we had an order in last Monday that we shipped out on Tuesday first class signed for and as yet it has not arrived. The customer is annoyed with us, now I appreciate he should be annoyed but I feel with Royal Mail as we did post out ASAP, Royal Mail then inform the customer that we shipped his parcel second class which was not the case so good old royal mail have cost Lyn and I a customer.
I decided to get in touch myself to see what was happening and got informed that a first class signed for parcel can take, now wait for this up to 15 yes 15 days to arrive, what great service. Just wanted to let off a bit of steam.

Graham,

I got my parcel this morning - thank you for a fine service. They tried to deliver the package 7.40am on Monday morning but I wasn't at home I was in Devon with the Exonian Magic Society day. But I have everything now. Its well worth paying the extra postage to actually receive your order!

Post by: Graham Lee on October 04, 2011, 03:47:28 PM
Yes it may be time to drop the £6 postal charge and just start with £9 and then everything can go with the courier for a next day delivery. UPS have been good with a 99% next day delivery, now and again things go wrong due to lorries breaking down etc but at least you know exactly where the parcel is all the time unlike Royal Mail.

The Sempertex assorted have just come back into stock along with Fucshia, Bubble Gum Pink and Lilac.
Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: Graham Lee on October 05, 2011, 11:42:28 PM
We have just added a few more items to our stock range on the Qualatex website, 16" Geo Donut's in Wild Berry, Lime Green, Jewel Ass and Radiant Jewel Ass.
We will finally have in stock tomorrow the 6" Geo Blossom in Wild Berry, this has not been available for a while.

We have reduced the price of the DVD's by a penny so saving you £3.01 as the penny price drop reduces the DVD postage price.
Mark Byrne Bad to the Balloon Vol 2 DVD has been reduced from £25 to £19.99.

I've had problems with UPS in the past. Qualatex sent me parcels, next day delivery, and it took over a week. Their computer showed no attempt had been made to deliver. Qualatex, after a few days had passed, paid for Saturday delivery at extra cost, and they still didn't attempt a delivery.
I've heard similar stories about other companies.
You can't rely on anyone.
Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: Graham Lee on October 25, 2011, 12:29:27 AM
In the six years we have been trading UPS have only let us down twice with next day dellivery due to a lorry beakdown so we are pleased with them.
Unlike Royal Mail who say there first class service can take up to 15 days to deliver, we have had a few go missing these last couple of months as well.

We are having a mini sale on the Sempertex site. I found some balloons hiding in one of many boxes we have, for what is available; balloon-sale-t4532.html (http://balloonchat.co.uk/balloon-sale-t4532.html)

We have started to stock the Jewel Magenta and the Quartz Purple as a trial to see if there is a demand for these products,
we have finally got all the Qualatex neons now back in stock as well.

SPECIAL OFFER, we have only four bags of 660's;
"Sempertex 660 Balloons in colour: Assorted, VIOLET, BLUE, LILAC, FUCHSIA, PEACH/BLUSH (code: VBLFP) - All balloons come in 50 count bags."

These are to make Ken Stillman princesses, they have changed the mixed colour bag so when they are gone they are gone and never to be repeated.
They should be £9.99 a bag but we will do the four bags for £25 + £6 shipping. We are having a tidy up and trying to make room for more products.

Post by: Graham Lee on February 28, 2012, 05:49:33 PM
I have been looking at the postal charge rate on both websites, I can either charge now as I do on cost of item or it can go on weight.
There will always be the odd discrepancy whichever way we do things, the ones that stand out at the moment are DVD's, big 6 foot balloons and busking bags. I normally get around this by adding a bag of 260 balloons to the order but appreciate that sometimes people do not require an extra bag of balloons.
If I change over to the weight cost then again we would have the odd discrepancy as if someone ordered just over 2kg they would then be charged for 3kg etc. Also with this I am not sure how I can then offer free shipping on goods over £150 as everything has a different weight and a few DVD's will cost more than 25 bags of balloons yet the DVD's should be shipped free and the balloons be charged.
Sometimes things are not as easy as we all would like.
Goes away and puts on thinking cap.

can you not offer free postage on orders over a certain amount say £50 then have a charge for say between £1 - £20 & from £20 - £50 don't take these amounts literally I'm sure I have seen this way of charging before

Up to £19.99 - Postage is £6.00*
Up to £74.99 - Postage is £9.00*
Up to £149.99 - Postage is £12.00*

Post by: Jaywickrob on February 28, 2012, 06:55:52 PM
Personally I think the system you use is fantastic, but it's not always necessary to receive delivery as quickly.

Could you not consider using the express service as an option and/or a standard 3 to 5 day delivery using a different courier at a lower price.

The Royal Mail always seems to be the least expensive option on parcels/packages under 2Kg. Over this weight they do become expensive.

I've just done some quick research and found that a parcel of 2.5Kgs measuring 20cms x 15cms x 15cms on a 3 to 5 day delivery quotes at £3.99 + Vat.
A parcel of the same size, using the same service, weighing 5Kgs would be £4.99 + Vat
A parcel of 7.5Kgs measuring 60cms x 30cms x 30cms would be £6.50 + Vat.

Insurance up to a value of £50 and tracking are both standard with the courier services I've quoted.
If the parcel has a higher value than £50 there is an option to increase cover, for a price of course.
Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: Graham Lee on February 28, 2012, 07:42:28 PM
Thanks for the info Rob, we used to do the Royal Mail 48hr parcelforce service and many parcels went missing the majority of people do want the order ASAP.
The cheaper service I have found is where they put the parcel into an outside bin or anywhere else so that they do not have to return again, we do like to have a confirmed sign for courier.
Although we use UPS we actually book through a third party and get a reasonable price but by no means the cheapest, many work on volume of parcels and we are still a very small fish compared to other wholsalers and the big internet companies.

Yes I have looked at this company before, my comment above about putting items in a bin or so called safe place with no signature was about this company.
You have to book the parcel in for next day pick up, not the same day as we do now and then it takes from 3/5 days to get delivered.
So although they do offer a good price at the moment for me it does not offer a quick enough service.

Post by: nippy99 on February 29, 2012, 02:05:17 PM
I can understand feeling a little miffed at paying £9 postage for a DVD but on the whole I do not have an issue with the postage rates. My last order comprised of just three bags of Geo Blossom's (still a staggering £40) with £9 postage. The actual postage was just under a fiver.

So I paid £4 extra... Am I overly bothered, no not really, for the following reasons...

a) I am getting wholesale prices at retail volumes (at least for this order usually I buy in much larger quantities)
b) Delivery was next day
c) It took Graham's time to pack the item, tape it, write the address, get the box, place an order with the courier - so the actual postage cost on the box isn't the true cost of delivery
d) then there are credit card and paypal fees to deduct.

I pay nothing to access this forum and I know Graham is on hand to help me out, offer advice and on occasions I have taken valuable stock on 'trust' at events, care and share days, and promptly paid the following day via bank transfer (yes I can be relied upon).

I won't get that level of service, help and support from any of the other major balloon suppliers.

Perhaps one idea would be to offer a pre-paid postage option, i.e. I give you £50 upfront and then for each order you deduct my postage fund by cost price plus 5 or 10% to factor in overheads?

Or maybe we should just be happy with the current service, the competitive prices, the tip top service, the added value of the forum and the fact that without Graham's store my life would be a whole lot more difficult.

If you are a paid entertainer earning decent rates from ballooning then really a few extra quid makes no difference whatsoever.

Don't shoot me down for sharing my views or I may have to flex my newly acquired moderator muscles (that was a joke by the way   :lol: )

Just chuck me in a bag of balloons now and again and that keeps me happy.

Darren thanks for the comments, at the thought that I'm also blowing my own trumpet, there is also the free advertising on the forum that anyone is able to take advantage off, just send me the artwork and I will add it to the area. I'm also very happy to plug any event or charity you are trying to help out with a mention and link on the news page of the forum. I am sometimes unable to compete with the big boys on postage but we score more on the added extras that we offer but are sometimes not seen by all. We will continue to try to help everyone to promote our balloon art while offering a very unique service to all our latex friends that we feel is not offered by other companies. I still have the same passion for our art all these years down the line and hope it never goes away. Thanks for reading, we all get hurt and upset sometimes.

This is obvious a dig at me Graham.

I really can not say thanks enough for ALL your (and of course the Balloon Chat members) help with the charity work I’m involved with. With your help, I was able to take ‘an unpaid’ five week tour putting smiles on 1000’s of kids with my magic & balloon shows.

However, being involved in so much charity work does have its down sides. I’m obviously now expected to pay over the top postage fees and just accept it. I also get so many calls from other companies as well asking for free shows etc, because they’ve helped our charity, not just the ‘Make A Smile Appeal’ but also the ‘Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline’ charity I was chairperson off. If I said yes to them all, I wouldn’t earn a living.

In the past six years, I’ve spent £1000’s from my own pocket on the charity tours etc. For example, with fund raising events last year, I managed to raise almost £5000 to pay for all the expenses for my five week tour to Belarus and Ukraine. But it still wasn’t enough so I put over £2000 out of my own pocket. So forgive me if I decide it’s time to try and save money by not paying excessive postal charges.

You said a while ago that the £9 for a single DVD was to cover the postage and packaging. Well the postage with Royal Mail is a maximum of £1.09, so the envelope must have cost £7.81.

You asked for comments regards postage. I’ve brought from other dealers in the past who had postage charges on their websites. And when it came to them arranging the postage, they refunded some via paypal as they actually thought the cost was too high. Now that’s good service. You mention giving a bag of balloons if ordering a DVD; to me, that’s admitting that you feel the cost is too high.



Quote from: "Graham Lee"
there is also the free advertising on the forum.

This is kind of you to offer, however, I’ve never had a single phone call from it. If you want to take my advert down, please do.

I’m sorry my comments are not positive, I’m just not happy that because my charity has been helped in the past, I’m ‘expected’ to shut up and say nothing!!!

Post by: nippy99 on February 29, 2012, 09:37:32 PM
Hi Billy,

In the most respectful and sincere way, I do feel you may have taken Graham's comments personally and to heart. You raised the issue about high postage charges in a different thread and quite rightly voted with your feet and purchased your DVD from an alternative source. I don't think anyone is criticising you for that and you do of course have complete freedom to do whatever you choose to do.

On this thread Graham asked for feedback and ideas on how to make improvements and it was probably my fault for sharing my views and highlighting the other benefits of using Graham over other suppliers (at least from my personal point of view).

Only Graham will know what he intended in his comments and I am sure he will answer in due course but I would be very surprised if this was a dig at you in person.

As regards to your voicing your opinion, positive or negative, this is wholly acceptable.

I must also congratulate you for the charity work you do. Very inspiring - well done.

Best wishes

Darren

This is obvious a dig at me Graham.
Sorry you felt I was having a dig at you Graeme, it was not. I do get other emails and PM's and phone calls about shipping prices.
I was just carrying on from what Darren had posted previously about his views and other suppliers.
I am always asking for news items to add to the news page and I wish one or two more would come in so that we can refresh the home page more.

We are aware as said previously that there are the odd thing here and there on the site that does throw up the wrong postal charge and we do try to address the situation.
I spent an hour this afternoon looking at the back of the sites to see if we could change things over so that postage was geared to weight of product. This would I think also cause a problem here and there so I do not think it's worth spending two days changing the postal rates over, the main problem would be not being able to offer free postage on orders over £150 as it would go on weight and not cost.
Maybe someone who is more technical may be able to tell me how this is achievable but at the moment I do not know how to do it.
When I started the forum I did not even know how to put an attachment onto an email, so I do think I have progressed but only on a need to know basis and at the moment it would be handy to know how to sort the postal situation out.
And thanks for being honest and telling us what you think as I expect others may be thinking the same but will not comment, we have looked to see what the best solution maybe and I was looking to possibly raise the lower postage rate value up to 24.99 which would then make the 6ft balloon and the DVD's (if I lower them to 24.99) down into the £6 postal rate which may help.

To clarify it does cost £3 to post out a single DVD as we send everything signed for and we will continue to add the odd bag of balloons into an order where we feel the postage is to high.

Like the care & share days and on here all constructive comments which yours were are welcome.
Without the comments the days would not evolve and we would not improve the service we try to offer via the websites.

We would also like a few more people taking advantage of the advertising space, Roger did comment that he had at least 20 calls/emails from the find a twister section.

Graham,

You do not get charged postage on a Care & Share day, which means you must be able to zero rate some items for postage.

Couldn't you just increase the price of the DVD's to include the postage and then zero rate them?

Just an idea off the top of my head.
Martin.
Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: Graham Lee on February 29, 2012, 11:06:18 PM
Yes I can zero rate as when we first started the Sempertex site there was no postal charge to add which made our products look dearer at first glance to potential customers. We had numerous calls and people saying at the days, we would buy from you but when you add the postage cost you are dearer, even though all over the site we had no added extras,
the price you se is the price you pay. No VAT or postage to add.
So if we went down this route which is an option I feel we may have a similar situation, but then perhaps that is better than the situation we have now.
Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: Jaywickrob on February 29, 2012, 11:37:36 PM
Before ordering my balloons from Graham I made a couple of enquiries locally and the lowest price I could find for a bag of 100 Qualatex balloons was £12.50.
Even with the postage cost included, the few bags of balloons I received from Graham worked out at less than half the price, and I didn't have to wear out any shoe leather going to collect them.

I do love a bargain :)

Apologies Graham,

Didn't make myself clear... I meant where you order a care and share day through the site you do not get charged postage and so technically you must be able to 'zero' rate postage, rather than when you buy a DVD at a Care and Share day.

I thought you may be able to incorporate a lower postage rate into the unit price of a DVD (on the site) and then not add postage.

Hope that is clearer?
Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: Graham Lee on March 01, 2012, 12:25:09 PM
Hi Martin, yes I do think I understood you correctly, I would be concerned that 99% of product on the site would be plus postage and the DVD section including postage.
I'm just off to increase the first postage band form 19.99 to 24.99 for a trial period to see how this goes and I will reduce the DVD's to 24.99 so bringing the postage down to the £6 unit.

Not sure if I mentioned this earlier but we reduced the price of the David Grist DVD's from £15 to £12.50 and the full set from £110 to £99.
This is for a limited time only, we had the special at Blackpool and will keep it going for a few more weeks, till the end of March.

Just found another little wrinkle, we reduced the price of David's DVD's from £15 to £12.50 which makes if you order one DVD you pay £6 postage and two the postage will be £9.
So if we reduce David's DVD's from £12.50 to £12.49 then the postage for two will stay at the £6 cheaper rate. Just off to change the prices now.

As I did explain at Bristol and everyone laughed as they thought it was a sales ploy, we have now sold all the pink cat faces and they are no more. They have been dis-continued, we have approx 6 bags of white cat faces left and then they will be no more as well.

Post by: Graham Lee on May 30, 2012, 09:16:42 PM
We had about 15 items on the sempertex website out of stock, it is all now back in stock. It does say that metallic White, metallic Gold and metallic Key Lime are out of stock but we believe that there is no more in the warehouse and so none of these items will be available now in the UK. When the metallic's are all sold they will not be replaced, we are keeping the mixed bags. There will only be 5 colours in the 360 range kept and at the moment all the 660's are not being re-stocked although I am trying to get the 660 assorted bags kept. We have reduced many of the said items, sort of like a clearence sale.

I have some good news and some bad news, the good news is that we have Patrick van de Ven's DVD now in stock on both websites at £24.99.
And the bad news is that we have finally had too increase postage, Royal Mail put up the rates a while back by up to 30% and now in the week
while away the courier we use has also increased prices.
The £9 fee has gone up to £10 and the £12 is now £12.50, we still offer free carriage on orders over £150

It is with deep regret and a heavy heart that I have to inform everyone that I have had to do the unthinkable and put the price up on the Sempertex website  :(
This is not due to a Sempertex price increase or VAT increase etc but due to seeing my accountant last week and being informed that the idea of running a business was to make a profit,
now she tells me.

The new prices are,

260 4.75, wholesale price should be £4.99
160 4.25, wholesale price should be £4.38
360 7.99, wholesale price should be £8.22
660 9.99, wholesale price should be £10.98
hearts, 5.99

We still have the 50 bags at £199, saving £37.51

We still sell cheaper than the suggested wholesale selling price and have some special offers on while stocks last,
660 on single colours we have 3 for 2
hearts on selected single colours we have 3 for 2
metallic/Satin 260 single colours we have 3 for 2
and the best bargain is on metallic 160 single colours we have 5 for 3

Once these are all sold there will be no more stock, as they say when thay are gone they are gone forever, well in the UK at least.

The dreaded VAT, I have spent the weekend sorting out prices on both websites and price lists we send out as we have had to apply to be VAT registered.
Unfortunately we have had to increase the majority of prices including the care & share days and BAG membership, one or two lines have not been increased.
At the moment the VAT is included in the price on the retail and wholesale website but as soon as we have a VAT number the wholesale site will be excluding VAT
as all other wholesalers operate this way.

To say the past few weeks have been a little stressful would be an understatement   :(  Still keep smiling and don't let the buggers get you down, as my gran used to say  ;)

Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: nippy99 on July 29, 2012, 10:40:53 PM
Hi Graham

Does that mean that most of the existing prices have increased by 20% (with the option to reclaim back VAT for wholesale customers) or have you reworked the pricing so that when VAT has been added the price is the same as the original?

I'm a bit confused.

Cheers
Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: Graham Lee on July 29, 2012, 11:19:41 PM
Hi Darren, No I have not increased the prices by 20%, 260's went up between 14-24p 5" rounds stayed the same price, the larger value items went up the most as 20% on a £30 bag of balloons is a few pennies but even then we did not increase by 20%. I am aware that life is difficult and party bookings are not what they used to be as I still go out entertaining myself and it's not like the good old days where we were turning work away every weekend. I'll email over the new price list, you can then compare if you have an old price list. I have tried to keep it all competitive and it has been a bit of a worry.
Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: Graham Lee on July 30, 2012, 12:36:50 PM
I have just added an extra lower shipping price and adjusted a few price bands, new shipping on the Qualatex site is,

up to £14.99, £4
up to £29.99, £7
up to £99.99, £10
up to £149.99, £12.50
over £150 there is free postage

So if someone wants the odd bag it will be cheaper and DVD's will fall into the cheaper postage band as well. The £10 rate used to be up to £74.99 so this has increased as well.
Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: Graham Lee on August 10, 2012, 02:38:28 PM
I have just had to put the shipping price up for orders to Northern Ireland on the Qualatex website, orders over £150 to most of the UK are free and we were having a nominal £7.50 fee for orders over £150 to Northern Ireland. Unfortunately due to the large rise in April by Royal Mail the cost to send a case of 50 bags is now £21.40, we have put the rate up from £7.50 to £15 so still subsidising it a little.
Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: Graham Lee on August 12, 2012, 02:38:11 PM
Just incase anyone has been trying to place an order on the Qualatex site today and seen the prices changing before their eyes it's because I have been changing all the prices about due to registering for VAT. I still need to do the DVD, rounds 11" and rounds 5" sections but I'm taking Harry out now and having a break, will finish off tonight, no prices have gone up I'm just making the wholesale site excluding VAT the same as other wholesale companies.

I can also send to non EU countries VAT free as well, this may help with selling David's DVD's to America. I need to double check first as it's a bit of a worry with big brother looking over your shoulder checking things.

Having a little problem with getting a good quality picture on the site with the product for some reason, spent the past 30 mins and still no good.
I'm walking away now and will try this afternoon again to get a better quality picture loaded.

I just wanted to mention that after Antonio and I had struck the deal via email he pointed out when I collected them from him that he had saved a few pennies on the production cost of the Flowys DVD and so adjusted the payment or I could have extra DVD's. I thought that was nice, and then he got out an extra DVD of each and presented them to me as his personal gift for my collection. I was touched as this is the first time this has happened and I thought it was a lovely gesture and this is why I wanted to mention it, and I have now  :D
So Antonio, Thank You.

Got a nice email from Dave this week about the new courier service, well we have been using them for a few months now. He kindly said I could put it onto the forum,

Hi Graham

Just a quick email to say thanks for the prompt order, which all arrived intact about lunchtime today. The courier firm was excellent – got a text yesterday to say the order was ready for despatch and another this morning giving me delivery times for later today. I took the option to ask them to deliver to a neighbour and got a text saying that was OK and another later to confirm the delivery had been made. Also got a card through the door telling me the delivery was with my neighbour. All in all, fantastic service from yourself and the courier. Thanks very much again.

Best regards

Dave (see you in Stortford – do you know the date in Jan yet?)

I know we have mentioned this before but I do need to re-word the two advertising boxes on the Qualatex website. Since we went VAT registered the one mentioning the price you see is the price you pay is a little confusing, it is correct on the retail site but obviously on the wholesale site there is VAT to add. All other wholesale sites that I have looked at also add the VAT at the checkout so we have to be competitive and in line with these.

It is always nice to get feedback and suggestions if anyone would like to comment?

The artwork and text are a lot crisper on the original copies.

On the 1st April Royal Mail changed the postal charges and parcel size as well, for us this meant anything under 1kg, approx. 4 bags 260's would go still with Royal Mail but 5 bags,
over 1kg would go with the courier. I have changed the shipping costs on the Sempertex site,
up to 24.99 used to be £6. This is now 19.99 and shipping is £5. We have also added an extra band in to make the just over £20 fee £7.50 rather than £10.

As usual it is difficult to work things out and if we find someone is paying far to much we will either add an extra bag of balloons or will do a refund.

I have just changed all the 11" agate balloons that came in single colours and 25 count bags into mixed bags and just 10 count bags,
hoping to tempt you to buy and try. Once these have all sold I will then put the 100 count mixed bags into 10 or 25 count bags so that it makes it a little more affordable for everyone.
Any other suggestions apart from how about you give them away  :lol:

I have just amended the "FREE" shipping price on the Qualatex website, it used to be £150 retail and £150 + VAT wholesale.
I have reduced this to £125 retail and also £125 wholesale, so the wholesale with the vat is £150. As the site is a template I'm unable to make the shipping prices the same for retail and wholesale, so decided to bring the prices down as the wholesale free shipping at £180 with the vat I thought was a little high.

Also for January we are offering a free DVD with orders over £250, this will be a DVD of our choice and not one of mine, thank goodness for that I hear you cry  ;)

Hi Graham
Just a quick question about the 2 websites. When you only need a couple of items from 1, and lots of items to qualify for free postage from the other, it is a bit long winded to pay separately and be separately invoiced. Is there a reason why the wholesale section isn;t combined, or to have a joint shopping cart? Or do they have to be kept separate for accounting reasons? It would just be so much simpler to do one shop and payment from a customer's point of view. I understand it might not be so simple your end though.
Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: Graham Lee on April 08, 2014, 10:34:34 AM
If you order from both websites I do alter the postage costs accordingly, you can just do the one order and call me or email to ask for the other products.
I can then send over a paypal request or take credit card. Unfortunately I have to sell the Qualatex products on it's own website.
Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: cometomyparty on April 08, 2014, 04:44:42 PM
THought there was probably a reason. Yes I did that last time which was fine and I appreciated the combined postage. Just wondered why it had to be on 2 sites though but it makes sense that Qualatex brand couldn't have any other products on an official Qualatex page. Thanks for clearing that up.
Title: Re: Qualatex/Sempertex Websites
Post by: Graham Lee on April 09, 2014, 04:09:58 PM
As many are aware the stock of Semeprtex is very low at the moment with many products out of stock.
The ship docks in a coupel of weeks and we should have new supplies by the end of the month.
Please note no bear head stock will be coming with this shipment and we are very low on them as well so it might be a good time to buy what we have so you do not run out.
I know many are thinking what a great marketing ploy but it is honestly true.

It's a bit of a guessing game, orders come in every 3 months so we have to guess what stock is required and how much in that time period will sell.
Depending on trends and sometimes what new designs come out we run out too soon. The minion was very popular so we had a run on 360 yellow.
Hope that explains it, if not ask away again, happy to help if I can.

If you do get a minute or two to add a review that would be appreciated and you can get 5% off your next balloon order if you post three reviews.

We are looking into having a drop down box on the buy 25 or 50 bags balloons so you can add what bags you require and then we are going up market and having two apps built for the site, one for google and one for android/windows. We need an icon/picture and my web guy John sent this over, not twisting/modelling balloons but very shiny round balloons. Has anyone got some ideas for what the icon on the app should be?

The pink and white cat faces have been popular but I thought white would be more so than pink...............
So guess who got that wrong, yes me. I only have one bag pink cat face left and I have to order from America so it will be a few weeks but I will order them again.
I will also get some black cat faces as well next time.

Less than 10 days before Christmas, I was alarmed and embarrassed to find out that I would not have enough red and white 260s to see me though my Christmas bookings! I need not have worried, I placed my order in the afternoon and received it the very next morning. Thanks! :D

We are thinking about changing some of the shipment ways we send out orders, the majority of orders we actually subsidise.
The courier we use charges us £8.17 per shipment and we have shipping prices from 3.99. The lower cost shipping does go first class at £3.30 but on other orders we are paying £3.18.
Which over a month does add up to quite a bit.

I did not realise till the other week we can ship up to 2kg with royal mail for £2.80 second class, we can add to this a signed for service which would make it £3.90.
I found this out trying to work a better cost for shipping to the Isle of Wight and Northern Ireland as our courier charges even more for these two destinations. £10.84 and £23.10

So would people be annoyed with a second class delivery (second class postage wise not speed that we ship them out, we like to offer a first class service :) )
after being used to the speedy service we try to offer. I think they would.

So the best solution would be to offer both selections at check out, something for me to ponder on.

As a hobbyist, I only order a few bags at a time and would certainly not be concerned about a day or two lag in postage if you were able to offer it at a slightly lower rate. I do appreciate that I might be in the minority though.
The option for a quicker delivery would also be a good idea for those rush jobs

If you could narrow it down to 2 or 3 choices then the customer can decide on speed vs cost for their order as I'm sure you'll still get some that will need next day.

All the new stock came in today.

If you take a look at the sempertex website we have some strange pricing going on.

This is because we have some product in 100 count bags and some with 50 count bags.

The UK is going over to 50 count bags for single colours and
generally 100 count bags for the mixed/assorted bags.
Although the metallic 160 assorted have come in 50 count bags
and the love heart assortment are in 50 count bags as well.

If you are unsure then please ask and if you put in discount10 for Feb you will also get 10% off your order.

So we have decided to make these up and add them to the website, we try to offer that little bit extra.
Please be aware they will not come in sealed qualatex bags and might take a few days extra to ship
as they will be made up to order. If we are inundated then I might need to take them off the
site but we will see how it goes.

This was the first order I had to place via Europe, we used to get them from the UK.

We are about to update the postal charges on the balloon art wholesale website selling Qualatex balloons.

We are going to have a smaller shipping price for the odd bag purchased and then the option
to have the order shipped out first class, second class, signed for, guaranteed next day etc.
Plus a Saturday delivery as well.

Plus as usual with the courier that is usually next day but not guaranteed or you can have
the option of guaranteed.

There will also be an option for the highlands of Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Wight.

So just more of a choice.

Added Note.
There is FREE shipping on the website if you spend over 125 pounds
This will stay, we are trying to give people cheaper options for orders that are not too urgent.

The increase is approx. 3% and we will adjust this sometime soon on the website
