    Sure, but it will make this thread look a bit funny. Could you save me the trouble of reading through that thread and send me a PM identifying the posts to move?

    Thanks for the cooperation.

    I guess not.:doh:
    I did not see in the Cheap Bubbler thread that this was a European shipped project.
    Unless the seller is shipping to separate addresses to be cool, I believe that forces me to miss the bus.

    Thanks for the prompt reply Pakalolo

    I mean I'm happy leaving it like it is, I just thought it was something expected?

    And you right it might be a little odd

    To anyone with questions who does not fancy reading through the Webthread that the is the Cheap and Bubbler thread:

    I want to buy this bubbler but you can only buy 10 minimum so I'm trying to organise a European group buying for this unusual unit:

    Maybe there is enough interest in a separate US group buy.

    I'd be in.

    @Oil do you have an URL or the piece and/or the email of the seller?

    So, we've lost Vitolo and Poopmachine, good luck guys (It looks like a US shipping could get there quicker than our European one!!) so back down to 4 of us

    (tepictoton, ratchett, Mister G, and myself) 6 to go..

    6 seat left...

    edit: oops sorry double post

    Perhaps this thread is Phat enough to be called Tornado Cyclone "Universal" Order Thread .. we are wise and talented enough to do 2 groups from here.
    If any disagree we may be forced to move.
    I sent a direct inquiry specifying that I had interest in the blue 5 slit design.
    I asked if they shipped by ground or USPS
    They will not send I am certain to multiple addresses...
    So on a purchase of these there will be shipping cost to get them dispersed from bong central to the other buyers. I figure approximately 15 dollars postage will ship these insured... (17.45 if flat rate large box is used.. 10-14 if priority mail is used)
    That brings the cost up to buyers to close to 45 dollars.
    One person (he who orders all) will not have to pay shipping....the shipping from aaryan is free.
    I have a couple of friends that do not get online that could each get one if it was 30 dollars.
    I feel that way also. 30 dollars is a magical number.
    I asked a local headshop if he wanted to carry them.
    He said no, but that he would lend me 300 bucks to buy ten.
    I was tempted, until I pictured myself packaging and shipping 7 of these puppies elsewhere!
    One must do the legwork of getting supplies/bubblewrap/boxes and the actual waiting on line at Post office.

    Thanks for the info.

    USA folks: I checked the website @Oil gave and the item now seems to be listed as an individual item on this page: http://www.aaryancreation.com/#!water-pipe/c1rg1
    Upper left item# W0223 priced individually @ $34.99.

    So I figured I'd give it a try. Added it to the cart. One showed up. Checked out via PayPal with no shipping added and got a receipt # from PayPal, but no email receipt from the "store" yet.

    We'll see what happens next.

    That could solve it all, nice one Sinclue!!!

    Like you said let's see what happens next...

    @ (tepictoton, ratchett, Mister G) I propose we put the group order on hold just to see how Sinclue's order goes through, good on you Man!!

    Although I'm still pusghing through to get the shipping pricing so that we have max info to proceed or not.

    Although if we really can buy one single item for $34.99 with free shipping, well than that's a no brainer obviously!

    seems like it's free shipping to EU too...at least it lets me go to paypal without adding shipping costs. However, I did not even have to give my adres or anything so I don't know how this would end...gonna wait and see what happens seeing I have 3 new pieces from sunshinestore on its way. If this is legit, and members here can confirm it then I will order one separate as well.

    If you go through PayPal it will go to your registered PayPal address I expect. I didn't have to fill out any info other than to sign in through PayPal, choose payment method, and pay. Got a receipt number and just checked and the $ has been deducted. No information on method or time for shipping and I have yet to actually receive an email from the store, but PayPal did redirect me back to the store to a Thank You for Your Order page.

    I see the item as selling for 99.99

    I just heard back from him.... it is about shipping, but I am not sure I follow this. Does it mean that I pay again when item arrives?
    Hi Mr. Vitolo,
    Yeah Its great …
    This is awesome pcs Our buyers are just placing the repeated orders for it… hope you will also repeat the order with big quantity.
    We use the good shipping company BOMBINO its safe and fastest for USA.
    As you know we have to clear the shipment in US custom also.. that’s why we have corporate deal with BOMBINO Shipping so you don’t worry you have to pay the shipping after material will reached you on your door.

    What is he saying here?

    It would seem to say you don't have to worry about paying shipping charges because they have a corporate deal with BOMBINO (does exist as Bombino Express I looked it up).

    I haven't heard anything from them since my infamous $34.99 successful PayPal order earlier in the day. I thought that was because its early Sunday morning there, but clearly somebody is answering emails.

    I didn't get an order number when I paid, but did get sent back to a Thank You page from PP. The money was paid from my account by PP. If I don't hear anything from them by tomorrow then I'll contact them expecting my order to have been cancelled. I suppose an optimist would think they'd honor their posted price as it was their mistake, but....

    Also I never saw anything about there having to be bulk orders. The item description even specified one piece.

    Oh well. Too good to be true?

    Good morning everyone

    So just to let you know that I'm still pursuing this group purchase and still awaiting shipping instruction, I'm in contact with them but trying to get Precise information, not as easy as one would think though..

    @ (tepictoton, ratchett, Mister G) are you still interested guys???

    I'd like to welcome Dafni :clap: into the group who's interested to buy 3 pieces.:tup::tup::tup:

    So that would make it 7 pieces, 3 to go

    Pulling on through, pulling on through :rofl:

    Good to hear. I was worried for a moment. 180 is too much for such thin glass, but for 30, heck, I take 3 and pass 2 on to friends.
