If you mean Silverprint is cheaper than 7dayshop, then yes they are, by £3 a 100. :o
So Martin is showing me up for a liar; can I help that?:confused:
JUst received my first order through the online ordering, delayed by a day but it worked really well. Seems that the clunky interface hides a decent service .
My experience has been positive
I had some concerns about the security of the online ordering system as although the form is submitted on a secure connection (https) it is then emailed to Silverprint. I spoke to them on the phone and they informed me that several people had queried this but and that, yes, the form is emailed but only between internal servers in the same hosting environment and so nothing is sent insecurely on the internet. It's a shame the website functionality is so poor. I think a proper e-commerce site would be great. It is a real trial placing an order in the current system.
Great service though!
you can always phone through your order.
My comments were more to encourage people to use Silverprint than the opposite! I'm not sure what I said gave the right impression. I have in the past phoned through but like many others I like the ease and convenience of online ordering. However, even if one had to send orders by carrier pigeon I would still use them for my supplies as I believe such specialist companies need our support. Without them where would we be?
I am in the market for a Zeiss Ikon and can't believe the difference in prices in the USA and Japan. A new ZI at popflash is US$1260 & from Robert White - with vat is £950.50 ish which coverts to around US$1800 - even if you added the local sales tax to the USA price it is still considerablly cheaper - cheap enogh to fly over and get it!
I must admit that I buy most of my stuff from Silverprint and have always been happy with their service.
Fortunatly it is still a free country, so the choice of source is yours; international postage and insurance is quite cheap.
