Quote from: Greta on July 16, 2007, 02:39:52 AMI have never ordered from Amazon.uk but finally made an account because I saw a couple of OOP CDs I wanted there for insanely cheap, but for either of the Marketplace sellers I tried, the order doesn't complete, it says they "don't ship to my destination". Is there anyway around this, or can US not buy from UK Marketplace? It is maddening to see several OOP things there for so cheap (even with the exchange rate) that I have not seen anywhere else, but not be able to buy!
Quote from: Solitary Wanderer on July 15, 2007, 03:19:11 PMI do most of my cd buying using the Amazon dealers especially Caiman. I find them to be excellent Just wondering if there a high quality equivalent out there that I'm overlooking?Somewhere with a huge catalogue, reliable shipping and maybe better prices that I could try?Thanks

Quote from: Tancata on July 16, 2007, 07:02:15 AMMost people seem to have great experiences with JPC. But I haven't. I have made three orders with them, and every time one of the items was damaged because of the flimsy packaging they use. I don't know how widespread this is - maybe it's just an issue with the famously care-free way the postal service handle packages here in Ireland , but maybe not.
Quote from: Tancata on July 16, 2007, 07:02:15 AMAlso, JPC prices are - in my experience - generally higher than elsewhere (Amazon, MDT). And shipping is very expensive for small orders...
Quote from: uffeviking on July 15, 2007, 07:58:06 PMYou sure are lucky to get good service from Caiman. They have one of the worst reputations on the used CD and DVD market! If I decide to go used, I always buy from Newbury_Comics; reliable and super fast. I am an amazonMarketplace seller, but I can't give you my seller name, that would be called 'Spam' and Rob would fire me from my highly paid job as moderator. For Scandinavian specialties, Ondine has been my best friend. Airmail from Helsinki, five days after ordering is in my mailbox. Of course for the regular shopping trips I always run up GMG, go to upper right corner where different flags are displayed, pick mine, the USA, give amazon my order and they send GMG a small amount of money. Nice of them! 0:)
Quote from: Que on July 02, 2007, 09:48:18 AMI found some real bargains lately, many of them OOP, at Swiss discPLUS. I guess only of interest to European members of the forum.

Quote from: Mark on July 16, 2007, 02:52:56 AMGreta, just ask one of us kindly souls in the UK to buy stuff for you and ship it over. Then you reimburse us.
Quote from: Harry on July 16, 2007, 09:42:34 AMI always place my orders with JPC. DE.Their collection is reasonable, there prices also, although not in the full price range, the shipping cost are high, even with the orders I place, I have to pay it, known as ausgleichende gerechtigkeit, don't know how to translate that. Never broken cd's, or wrong cd's, always in stock, given or take one or two. The boxes are flimsy though, and they go through rough handling, and for that they are clearly not adequately packed, that's for sure.Never tryed Amazon, can't get the hang of it. If I have a problem with JPC, I just call, and in 10 seconds the problem is solved.
Quote from: Drasko on July 16, 2007, 09:13:28 AMGreta, it's not even necessary that someone else buy the stuff for you. They won't ship to you but they'll take your money, you just need someone in the UK to address the order to and then he/she can forward it to you.Trust me, I know, none of amazon marketplaces ships to me
Quote from: marvinbrown on July 16, 2007, 03:24:35 AM Solitary Wanderer amazon.co.uk marketplace is where I usually go to buy music, especially opera. My favorite is -importcds_com . They have never disappointed me. I have had very good results with Caiman, they have never defaulted on an order- but then again I never buy used cds or opera dvds. I have not found any other on-line store that can beat amazon marketplace. marvin
Quote from: Mark on July 16, 2007, 03:45:56 AMIn my experience Amazon Sellers are often THE cheapest way to get used CDs/DVDs. The only places I've found discs cheaper are at my local charity shops - specifically, a branch of Oxfam Music & Books, which as well as stocking many excellent used CDs also has a bedazzling array of rare/OOP LPs. A vinyl lover's dream ... though not to my taste.
Quote from: 71 dB on July 16, 2007, 03:54:15 AMI use mostly Amazon.co.uk marketplace (low product & shipping prices). I use often Caiman and I haven't had problems with them yet. What's interesting about Caiman is that whenever I buy an "used" CD I get a new one with plastic wrapping. Nice! I have had problems with some smaller sellers (wrong items).CDON.COMScandinavian online shop. Shipping is 2.95 euros for all orders but the service is very bad. If you think Caiman is bad try this store! You are very lucky to get everything you ordered. Fortunately they charge for only the items they are able to deliver so no need to be refunded. Somehow this store can offer something others can't (Swedish/Norwegian/Danish pop/rock etc.) so I keep using it.JPC.DEI have used this place only twice but with superb results. Shipping is always 5.99 euros to Finland (was 7.99 euros) so I have made bigger orders. Absolutely awesome service!
