BTW: Any idea for an icon???

 

I'm not sure, but a triskelion already exists... hmmm

I'm no designer but how about taking this element of your design for the icon....

They came out looking really good and I'm going to be interested in a couple for sure but I hope you don't decide to go the pre-sale route.

Because you do not want to pay for coins, that do not exist, right?

 

Like the pre-sale (or better reservation) for my travelstamps, you FIRST have to pay for your total order AFTER the coins have arrived from mint and checked by me.

 

NO PAYMENT IN ADVANCE!!!!

 

I know it's more risky for me but I do not want your money before I'm sure I can fulfill your order!

 

Or do you have other apprehension?

wenzelbub If your gauging interest and asking people how many they would like.. yet not collecting cash until they have arrived from the mint and ready to ship it is not Pre-Sale it is more often called a reservation sale/system and not Pre-Sale (it scares a lot of people off that word)

 

Reservations are the way to go for us so we do not have our money paid out and then waiting 2 months for coins, plus anything can happen in that time. Of course pre-sales is less risk for you :D

Thanks for this information, just updated my post.

 

I'll try to figure out how to implement in my webshop or find other solution. :D

Whats wroung with pre-sales? It seem like a good way to judge how much interest there is and figure out how many coins to order. That way you don't get stuck with to many extras.

Some of us made really bad experience with pre-sale. Paid for coins in advance and never got them.

 

But let's get back to thurus-coin :D

These are kind of simple, but hey, it's an idea. Here you go:

Edited to add: I like yours too. I can't tell what's going on with yours, which is actually a good thing: it hints at an intricate design (which I like) and makes me want to click on it to find out more! : )

Really, really sharp coin, great job! It's been fun watching its evolution, just like the Naymlap coin, which we are still in awe of, by the way! :P

Well I have reserved my set(s) :D tho I was a little confused :D with the wording of the reservation as you proceed to the checkout...

 

Money Order or Paypal

IF THIS IS A RESERVATION:

PLEASE MAKE PAYABLE FIRST AFTER GETTING EXTRA INFORMATION FROM ME!

 

I think this means only pay once you have received an addition e-mail requesting the cash. I think.. :P

 

Also it states that "Coins will probably arrive beginning of October from mint. " But I'm guessing end of October or beginning of November?

 

wenzelbub please do not think I'm picking on you ! I was just concerned about the reservation but I forged ahead as there was no way I wanted to miss out, as you can see by my order I'm rather taken with your lovely Thurus-geocoins :D

 

Cheers

All received reservations are updated to "reservation received" by now!

Because two persons asked about reservation:

 

If you want to reserve the coins you have to proceed the entire "order"-process.

But it's not an order, its only a reservation.

 

I can't see reservations for coins only placed into shopping cart!

 

Thanks

Stefan

 

BTW: only 4 days left for reservation!

So will you be sending invoices over the weekend then?

 

If mint will send them on thursday I do not believe in getting them till saturday. :D

Shipping of Thurus-samples took 2 days incl. custom :) , travelstamps 7 days... :)

I hope to get tracking number tomorrow.

 

I'll send you information for payment when coins are checked and ok. Maybe first next week.

Just want to make sure all coins are ok before getting money!

 

I already updated prices of all reservation, see your order history.

 

Changed status of "Mystery"-Edition and "Set of 5" on webshop to "sold out", because no additional "Mystery" will be for sale. All of you placed a reservation and got a confirmation will get them!

Got 91 reservations for "Mystery" and ordered 100 = LE is 100 coins
