Heads up - have a look at the menu bar on the top of the page. You\'ll notice a subtle change.

I\'ve just put up a blog post explaining what we\'re doing with the shop, what the stickers are like, and why we\'re starting small like this. Knock yourselves out!

Now we can get the pre-kindergardeners interested in Raspberry Pi\'s!

Stickers! Yes. Next best thing to ... ( I will not say it. )

Yes. If you scratch them, there\'s a lovely smell of vinyl and glue. 8)

a few remarks, if I may:
- I would force a basket display, and choosing the country to compute shipment fee+tax, as step 0. I hate paying more in S&H than in goods, so I had to go back and increase my order as I reached the last step ^^
- I entered a made-up coupon code, and got no error message
- S&H is very expensive. £2.5 for a letter to France ? It better be hand-written with a nice quill, and with an extra paw print.
- the store URL doesn\'t inspire confidence.
Otherwise, things went peachy. It even works in Opera ^^

P&P is going to be pricey on these because it\'s only set up to handle packages (which is all we\'ll be selling eventually), so it believes it\'s shipping parcels rather than envelopes. All the money from P&P is going straight to the charity. Also, the elves are on strike, so I\'m having to stuff the envelopes myself…

What\'s the problem with the URL? The store will have the favicon when Eben gets round to putting it in. (I have delegated. Look at me.)

Oops, actually, it changes only when going into the checkout, to \"https://store-a9ba5.mybigcommerce.com/\". that\'s the scary URL ^^

I have a little problem here:
Trying to create an account, I filled in all fields with the red * (I don\'t have a Company Name or Address Line 2 anyway).
Nevertheless I got an Error \"The \'State/Province\' field is required.\" However, that field does not exist, or is not accessible and appears to be the same as \"Zip/Postcode\".

EDIT
Problem solved.

Very nice, and surprisingly cute. They remind me of those edible flavoured stickers you used to get. Or mug coasters for mice. I\'d guess they\'d probably like fruit themed tableware.

Are they on a clear background, not white? I couldn\'t tell from the photo.

There is no background: they\'re cut to the shape of the logo. They\'re really very cute indeed - I think you\'ll be quite surprised at how adorably teeny they are in person.

None, although she sort of lit up and went for the bag as soon as I got it out of the box. It\'s out of reach now.

For those wondering what Mooncake, the Raspberry Pi cat actually looks like, you can see her checking out a very expensive hamper at http://www.gastronomydomine.com/ - she\'s usually quite camera-shy.

*sigh*

This is what\'ll happen when the Pi itself is launched. :-(

At 21:10 I was watching the Timeteam \"special\" on another great experiment in British engineering, the launch of Brunels \"Great Eastern\". 90 minutes will be the difference between getting a slice of Pi and being turned away empty...

I\'ve never ordered anything \"overseas\" via PayPal. Do they charge for currency exchange (I\'m in the US)?

Just ordered mine. Shipping and handling was fairly honest at 2,07GBP to Brazil. Also, I must comment on the fact that something in the forms make it incompatible with Chrome auto-complete (yeah, I\'m a spoiled brat; I hate filling forms all by myself, specially when billing and shipping are to different addresses), clicking on the pop-up menu gives no result whatsoever, you have to fill it all by hand.

I wish to protest. Most adamantly. You\'re charging me £2.48 for London-Paris, and only £2.07 to Rio for a guy who does not even have the £ sign on his keyboard ?
More seriously, I don\'t care, but if this means there\'s a bug in the shipping prices database, that\'s gonna be a bother for the avalanche of orders for the real thing. You should call Bob Loblaw preemptively, or at least read his law blog. NO YOUTUBE linky, you should have clicked the initial one.

I\'ve been to Royal Mail price finder. I can see surface mail is available for international shipment. It can take about 8 weeks (to Thailand), but for people who are sensitive to shipping costs this could be an option as it is about twice as cheap.

They don\'t charge directly, but their exchange rate is not the best...
You can order your sticker in USD however, so there would be no extra charge.

There are all sorts of legal requirements about information which must be included on UK sales sites ... none of which I could see included on the R-Pi shop.

It would be a good idea to get that resolved quickly now you are actually trading.
