I normally get 2 to 3 pallets from UK to Ireland every month and looked at your site to see if I could put business your way .
We are in the process of adding it along with about 10 others - will be done by weekend.

Thanks - it all helps!!!

If that means it gets delivered at a time or place convenient to me, then yes. It would mean that I do not have to spend good money on fuel, and waste my time going across town.

I agree, I was not mandating solutions.

Again, not mandating solutions. Is it possible that a business could offer a number of delivery options?

Not an option for all of us.
I am not suggesting that I have all the answers, rather I was offering food for thought. However, I know that I find delivery to be one of my biggest bugbears with internet trade. Sort that and you may get trade from me and like minded individuals.

yes, I know that the internet software my own business uses will allow the user to select delivery from a number of options (as it would for different "speeds" of delivery). BUT most couriers negotiate their prices based on number of shipments. So if 1/2 the packages are going via a different courier or royal mail - everyone will pay a bit more.

Yes it is - few missing postcodes to add and a few countries but it's 95% there now. Credit cards working and paypal.

Ireland now added - only country in Europe without postcodes which is why it took a bit longer. Just type the county name - ie Cork.

Note - a full pallet is the same price as a 1/2.
