If I say to everybody "OK, there's going to be a $5 surcharge tacked on top of the shipping charges." everybody would fucking riot. People tend not to like it when you spring extra fees on them.

I think as the size of the split grows, the surcharge should decrease.

If you charged $5 for each person in your knize split with 24 spots, that gives you $120 for your time. I think a $2-$3 surcharge for this size of a split would be reasonable.

If there was a split for, say, 5 people, then maybe a $5 surcharge would make sense.

good in theory but it isnt like the more people in the split decreases the amount of work... ultimately it is up for the splitter to decide.. if they can get people to do they split with $20 on top well thats good for them, but odds are they won't. Let the splitter find out what the market will allow I guess.

I still kind of like the idea of the splitter getting 1 split worth per bottle as a rule of thumb though

Splitting a bottle of Van Cleef & Arpels Midnight in Paris Eau de Parfum just purchased from Neimans today. It's still sealed, and I'm waiting for at least one other participant before I open it. I currently have 65ml glass atomizers (the bottle on the right in the picture above) and 7.5ml plastic atomizers (on the left) in my possession, and ready to process for shipment on Tuesday (since Monday is a holiday). Prices include shipping via USPS Priority with delivery confirmation and paypal fees. Discount available for paypal personal. I just have 2 slots of 40ml each. Cost is $57 (or $55 for paypal personal). 1. 2. 3. boo I'm considering making 7ml decants in 7.5ml plastic atomizers available if there isn't sufficient interest in the 40 ml bottles. I'll let the 40ml slots run until Wednesday 2/23 or so . If you're interested only in 7ml, but not 40ml, PM me and I'll set up a waiting list. Price is $14 each (shipped USPS first class with delivery confirmation). If there's still an open slot by Wed night, I'll start PMing people. 7ml wait list - If I get five people, I'm going to count that as a slot for above 1. chixdiggit 2. Kyoung05 3. raybert 4. 5. Edit: PMs sent

It was a bit of an impulse purchase.

My 2 cents on things discussed:

- Multiple slot purchases - Sure, though I think it should be up to the splitter.

- Low post-count participants - Again, I think it's up to the seller to deal with whom they want.

- Split pricing - If someone isn't happy with the margin a splitter has included for themselves, no one is forcing them to participate. From what I've seen here so far, you sure as hell aren't going to get a better deal from perfumed court or any of the other "pro" decanters.

^That's because I haven't built anything for myself into the prices.

Just a bump to see if there is interest in Chanel Sycamore

Re: Building in Buffers... Rambo, my suggestion is add $2-3 on each split per person, somehow $5 seems like a lot but $2-3/person is ok IMO. Otherwise build in flat shipping charge, and sometimes you're over and sometimes you're under but it'll probably only vary by a few $. PEOPLE, Consider: 1. Compared to the Perfumed court costs or even wikisplits this is ridiculously cheap. The sellers here are allowing low ml splits and not only aren't tacking on big margins, they're LOSING money... you've got to be crazy. 2. It's not like clothes where the seller might pick them up for nothing and then flip the juice to you, these are purchased at full (or somewhat discounted) retail so there's no haggling here... you're paying exactly for the juice, atomizers, time/effort, etc. There's complete cost transparency.

Interest expressed for Tuscan Leather

I got my Creed BdP from Rambo today (finally - Canada customs are always slow, but really I shouldn't complain given the "cosmetic sample" contents). The juice smells as great as ever, nice atomizer, and thanks to the packaging it probably could have survived a drop from an airplane. Rambo, I have no problem if you take $3 per split for yourself in the future. As long as you don't mind my incessant suggestions for future splits, I'll keep suggesting and I'll keep purchasing! Cheers my friend!

There is a little wait on getting Aventus currently (still waiting for my first two to come in). However if you're interested I'd be willing to do another.
