I have a Merlin card and using it on my A4000. Anything I can do to help?

Please contact me through the web form of www.icomp.de - I have a few cards here already, and one of them should be on it's way to Canada ASAP ;-)

Pre-order phase for X-Surf-100 to be launched with all resellers today. Should you prefer to buy directly, try my new direct shop. Every single order will be served. There is no need to place double orders. As always: Shop locally!

Pre-order phase runs until august 14th, "high noon" (12:00 CET). Parcels to resellers will be shipped on august 30th.

I won't be buying it (only desktops miggys), but nice that you've got now a shop there. You have to add Paypal as payment method soon

No, I don't have to. PayPal is extremely expensive for sellers, and if you're in Europe, a SEPA transfer is sufficiently fast and *by*law* as cheap as a domestic transfer.

I refuse to pay a percentage of my revenue to a bank. Should you prefer PayPal, please check with your local reseller. My shop is not meant as a competition for my resellers. My shipping cost is higher than many local resellers, and you have the inconvenience of only paying by bank transfer. You will most certainly get better service from your local reseller - they ship domestic and they speak your local language. That's why I recommend to buy locally.

As cheap as a domestic transfer in Euros.

So for the UK, SEPA credit transfers are subject to the same domestic transfer fee from Pound Sterling to Euro it always has. Which is up to €20

Bank transfers run in the $50 USD or 38 Range (I just paid this for a Petro A1200); this is standard for anything from a pack of gum to a car. A credit card averages 3% of the cost (hint: $3 per $100).

No, I pay here 3 for an international transfer; the same than locally. It isn't that bad, but he's true and I preffer to buy "locally" to AmigaKit.

Yes! I pay $50 (I just filed the banks invoice) for international transfers. As popular as it is in Europe, it is financially unsound in the states.

I bet that's why Schoenfeld clearly says to buy locally. In Germany (last time I checked his company was located there) a bank transfer costs nothing (read that as 0 per 100 ) for neither the seller nor the buyer, so it's pretty obviously the best choice.

$50 USD? Wow, that's high. Is that the total when you're paying the charges at both ends, or just your own U.S. bank's charge?

Not entirely true. Private customers are treated that way by most German banks (so there is really a "free checking account" - something that many American banks advertise, but never actually offer).

Business customers are charged for every single transaction, and that's with evry German bank. There are some that offer "flat rates", but that's only a good deal if you have hundreds of transactions per week - I'm not in that range. I have just changed banks, because I've found one that doesn't charge a monthly fee, and only charges 0,13EUR per transaction (incoming and outgoing transactions). Since this is the lowest cost that I have found in Germany, I have to call it fair.

Yes, I had a look on the AmigaKit website to pre-order the new X-Surf, but was disappointed to find no mention of it even coming. I'd much prefer to pre-order from AmigaKit than Vesalia, being on the other side of the world and all.

Hopefully the AmigaKit staff are reading and can let us know what their plans are for the new X-Surf card.

First I have heard about this card .
I have been away for two weeks though, so will ask about it and what the current pre-Order situation is.

Thanks - much appreciated! If you are able to stock it, then you can be assured of an order for the card + more from me.
