My first deal, 12 items from Michael (oxdelphis) arrived today, safe and sound in excellent condition (as always) but I can't leave feedback as the only items available to leave feedback on are those I haven't paid for yet, i have PM'd you Olivier.
I had two persons purchasing a few more common butterflies each, recently, and they of course were entitled to combined shipping. I experienced the same problem of not being able to find a option to create an invoice directly on insect-deal.com
Instead I just sent a combined item invoice from my paypal account and that worked fine in both cases.
does insect-deal generate enough funds to sustain the ICF so far?
The first month was good. Around 150€ for the ICF (which means around 4000€ of sales on Insect-Deal !). The next months were much lower with only 10/20€ for ICF (because most rare items were sold during the first month). So for the moment, it doesn't cover the cost of creating it (around 1000€) but it should soon be better integrated in Collector Secret listings and this will boost the sales on Insect-Deal. So in a word, the start is good but still a lot of work to be done
Thanks to all those who put items for sale on Insect-Deal and advertise it.
