    One thing I've noticed is the search is not picking up the store categories.

    e.g if you search for "balances" you get nothing but if you search "Salter" you find two results which are in the Chemical Balances category.

    Thanks for feedback

    Thanks very much for all the feedback, we're going to sort out the straightforward ones immediately, and Laura is working with Axis on the more complex points.

    Nice new site! Is there any chance to lower a bit the threshold for international orders. Most of the time 100P is hard to reach and I need to find another source. Fotoimpex is the logical answer, but the German post is expensive and snail-ish. I always preferred to deal with British sellers in Europe because of the Royal Post and because my German is non existent.

    Andrey, one way around the minimum charges/threshold is to get someone in the UK to buy for you and re-post what you're after.

    I did this for a US member a couple of years ago, because the company's (not Silverprint) minimum order size & the postage charge was excessively high to the US, the actual postage cost was minimal even with the insured & tracked option (less than $5).

    Alternately try and make a group purchase with some other Bulgarian photographers.

    I'd be happy to help you when I'm next in the UK.

    Ian

    A great improvement over the previous site. Your developer is to be congratulated. Thank you for taking the trouble to do this.

    Martin,

    I've noticed a minor glitch. Although there is a quantity button for the items, clicking on it only sends the item to the shopping basket, rather than change the quantity. It's minor though, since totals can be changed once the items are in the basket. Just FYI.

    Rachelle you might mention to Martin what browser version and operating system you are using. I tried this on Opera and Safari for Apple Leopard and in both cases the quanities pass over to the shopping card no problem.

    I am extra impressed. This site works fantastically well on a Blackberry phone running Opera Mobile. That's pretty cool.

    Since they won't ship anything chemical overseas they are of little use to me
