Did the bulk buy prices include shipping? Charged $520?
According to his info -prices include shipping. I would contact him if I were you to find out what is going on. The only thing I can think -is if your cores were not use-able for some reason. But I should think he would have contacted you first.

If you paid by credit card he added $45 to cover shipping. That is why I paid with money order.

He called me when working on my cams, got the card info and that was it. Never mentioned the extra cost?

But, if the price includes shipping, why charge me for shipping?

I don't understand -why would he charge extra to cover shipping when paying by credit card? I can maybe understand a minimal credit card processing fee -but not $45.

It's not to cover shipping. He doesn't like credit cards. I paid by credit, and he stated to me it would have a 45 dollar fee. Someone earlier in this thread posted that information.

He charges the $45 fee to cover his costs for using the credit card machine. Pretty standard for shops, sucks but it is what it is.

Yup -I missed that post!
:
Geoff told me $45 extra charge for shipping if I pay by VISA...
I didn't realize that the cost was that high. I thought when I checked into it years back that it was only about 6% and that would be about $28.50 for the most expensive Tri-Flows. I don't know -I guess it is what it is!

If there does happen to be another Colt Cams BB -then I guess whoever announces it should also include info about credit card fees. I am sorry that I didn't find out this info previously and post it when I posted the BB.

From their website:

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

US PAYMENT
We only accept International Money Orders and/or Drafts in US funds made out to "Colt Cams Inc.", and Visa and Mastercard over the telephone.

No taxes charged for US customers.
All prices are in Canadian, please call for US prices.
(A $XX or XX% fee if paying with credit card over the phone.) <----- Why not add one simple sentence to their site?

SHIPPING FOR OUR CANADIAN CUSTOMERS:
Make sure the cam cores are packaged well in a sturdy container. Please include all cam related information as well as name, return address and telephone number. We will ship back freight collect to nearest Bus Depot. Unless otherwise specified.

CANADIAN PAYMENT
We only accept Canadian money orders made out to "Colt Cams Inc.", Visa and Mastercard over the telephone.

BC residents pay 12% HST on top of the listed prices.
YT, NT, NU, AB, SK, MB, QC and PE residents pay 5% GST on top of the listed prices.
ON, NB and NL residents pay 13% HST on top of the listed prices.
NS residents pay 15% HST on top of the listed prices.

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

I'm not really mad or anything, but he could have at least told me the price he was going to charge while we were talking. I could have easily sent him a money order instead. I didn't send the money order at first, because I wanted to talk to him about a custom grind.

+ $45 fee or ~$1.20 for postage?

Everyone should have gotten a confirmation e-mail. If you didn't get one -your e-mail address may have not worked. If this is the case -you will need to contact them with a good e-mail address.

300zxrb26dett -your e-mail bounced back and so you will definitely need to contact them if you want your tracking number.

I got it all sorted out. I got a tracking number but my shipment shows it's still sitting in ISC since the 19th. Normally it doesn't take packages this long to clear.
