    New Addition on July-20:
    I was told that there may be some confusion re the final amount per catalogue. It should be in the region of S$7.50. That covers the postage charge and all other handling. The exact amount will be provided when I got the invoice.

    ------------------
    New Addition on July 19:
    Please ignore the payment term stated in this post.
    Please read on to understand the payment term but basically you put in your order here and pay only when you collect the catalogue from me.

    -------------------

    This is a spin-off of the following discussion thread.
    http://www.aquaticquotient.com/forum...004#post195004

    Here’s the Terms & Conditions (T&C) for participating in this Mass Order (MO) of the 2006 ADA Catalogue (English print). Please read them carefully before placing your order.

    MO cutoff date: 2369hrs, July 28, 2006 (Friday).
    Collection point: Car parking lot behind C328, (in Singapore).
    Date of Collection: Will advise when the catalogues arrive.

    Each member of AQ is entitled to order maximum 1 (one) copy of this catalogue in this MO.

    Interested party has to remit S$15 per catalogue to Nicky no later than 2359hrs, July 28, 2006.
    - Please send SMS to 9786-3398 to obtain the remit-to bank details.
    - Once the remittance process is completed, please follow-on with a SMS with the following details in the following order:
    AQ nickname, Actual Name, Your bank account number, amount remitted.
    - You should receive an SMS confirmation on the same day from me. Else please call to follow-up.

    Once your money is remitted to me, any request for cancellation/refund will be considered on the case-to-case basis. There will be no interest charge involves when refund is approved.

    If you put your name here indicating you want to order the catalogue and yet I do not receive your money by the order cutoff date/time, your order will automatically be cancelled on July 29, 2006.

    Depending on the final amount of the MO postage and/or GST and other fees, the S$15 collected may exceed the amount needed. If so, a refund will be provided upon collecting of catalogue. I will show the proof-of-calculation to whoever are the first 3 people who collected the catalogue from me and thereafter I will not be obliged to show the proof to anyone else. (This is needed so that I do not have to waste my time explaining all the details of numbers derivation).
    Any refund will be rounded down to the nearest S$.
    Any short-shipment or damage-on-arrival will be paid via this pool of money collected before refund is calculated.

    I will take reasonable care of your catalogue when they arrive at my house. However some catalogues may arrive with 'dog-ears' and folds that commonly associated with mail order.

    I will place addition 5% order of all collected orders in case there is any short-shipment or damages. If these proved not to be needed, I will make arrangement to have them sold and the money will be returned to the pool for refund. All these calculation and arrangement will be made before the collection date so that you only make 1 trip for both the catalogue and the refund (if any).

    This MO is subjected to ADA willingness/ability to send the catalogue to my place. If for whatever reason ADA is not able to send the catalogue to me, this MO will be considered void and I will refund your money to you in full, without any interest.
    FYI, on July-18, I have started the email communication to ADA and awaiting their reply.

    I will start another thread after this for you to place your order. Please copy from the previous list when adding your name.

    Thank you.

    Yours Truly, Avan

    I went into the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life... to put to rout all that was not life; and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

    ~ Henry David Thoreau

    I'm trying not to be too happy about it.. but I received an email from ADA saying that the shipping charge for 20 catalogues (1 carton) is JPY 1500.
    (see below for the extract of the email).
    That is less than S$ 21 for 20 catalogues !!!!!!!!!!
    However I'm not sure if he included the inland/handling-charge, etc, etc, etc..
    I think (and I hope) in the end the catalogue should cost less than S$2 per copy.
    Anyway I ordered 5 cartons = 100 copies.

    So for those of you who has register, please hold your money. I can help pay the S$2 for you FIRST, before you pay me when you pick up the catalogue.
    So come-on and jump on the bandwagon, yeh !!!!!
    Also, here's my shoulder, give it a pad. hehe..

    Also, Mods how about sticking this post?

    ------------------ extract of email from ADA -------------------

    Dear Mr. Nicholas Chung

    Thank you for inquiring our catalog.

    We are glad to send catalogs to your forum.
    However, please promote Nature Aquarium and
    ADA in the forum and promote our contest.

    One carton contains 20pc catalogs, we would like to
    send 40pc or 60pc for your forum. Which quantity
    do you prefer? Also, shipping charge for each carton
    is JPY1500.

    We will charge shipping cost your credit card, so please
    provide us your credit card number and expire date.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    Best regards,

    Alright... so wrong quote.. I'm verifying if the JPY 10400 they now quote is for each carton or for 5 cartons.
    Should be for each carton.. that works out to be about S$7.50 per copy.
    I will post the reply from them when I got it.

    ---------------- extract from ADA's email ----------------------

    Dear Mr. Nicholas Chung

    Thank you for your e-mail.

    I am sorry that I sent wrong shipping rate for you about
    shipping charge. Actually, JPY1500 for one carton is too cheap.
    We are asking JPY900 of shipping charge for one copy.

    I checked carefully again and JPY 10400 is correct shipping charge to
    Singapore by SAL. Please consider the quantity again and let me know.

    Best regards,

    'Ship' by SAL lah. So must be airfrieght. If go on surface shipment then we might as well order the 2007 version. hehe..
    But what's SAL? Should be JAL right? I better check...

    I have received the feedback from ADA. The shipping cost is JPY10400 per carton of 20 catalogues. I am ordering just 1 carton for the start to test the robustness of the shipping process. If going by air we should be having the catalogue in less than a week..

    The first 20 people on the list will only have to pay me when you get the book from me. If we have more than 20 people, the 21st person onwards will have to pay me before I order again. Will work out the amount needed later.

    ----------------- extract from email from ADA -----------------

    Shipping charge of JPY10400 is for each carton.
    So if you order 5 carton it will be JPY52000.
    However, 5 carton is so many for first shipment,
    therefore we will send maximum 3 cartons for you.
    if your forum still need more catalog then we will send you.
