Running a business online should be simple, but there are always complexities...
Email: In October 2017 I was bombed with spam on utle2uk with thousands of mails per minute and the only way to stop it was to report it, which meant the spam stopped but I couldn't send mail on that account. So, for a while I used my email@example.com email instead. Now the email on firstname.lastname@example.org is working fine again. So, either address is okay, although best to address PayPal queries to utle2uk.
Unofficial products: Discogs have stopped the sale of unofficial items via their database. This means that a few of the items we have in stock can no longer be sold via Discogs, including: Bamboo: Magical Power Mako box, Germanofon: Neu! (3 cheap second-hand copies), Phoenix: Brast Burn, Karuna Khyal, and the Far East Family Band - Nipponjin LP. These are all our last copies, so once gone they're gone forever!
Australian GST; From July 2018 this is charged by large turn-over web companies on their fees (in a similar way that VAT is). This currently applies to PayPal fees and Discogs fees (when sent to Australia) in addition to usual VAT they take. This means an additional 1% will need to be added on Australian orders, and 2% on orders via Discogs (that will be added to the p&p). Really, I need to add extra PayPal buttons to this site for Australia, but as we don't get many Australian orders I won't do that yet. Any Australian orders meanwhile will be getting a saving!
