Red Line Cord for GPO 746
« on: July 11, 2019, 11:08:22 AM »
I am looking for a red line cord in decent, not necessarily new, condition for a GPO 746.  I don't really want to pay 15 for shipping from the UK though.

Thank You


Larry

Shipping between UK and USA is absolutely crazy. I'm in the UKand can get stuff sent from China free shipping. However if I buy a phone from America, the shipping costs more than the phone does!

Hopefully world trade will be a lot better once we're out of the EU.
Call me on C*net 0246 81 290 from the UK
or (+44) 246 81 290 from the rest of the world.

Unfortunately, probably quite the opposite.

Larry, I have one but am also EU, will look online and see what the cost is to pop it into a jiffy bag and send it out to you.

Sad thing is, UK to US shipping by Royal Mail for the exact same item is far cheaper, the USPS is just in a severe price-gouging phase due to major deals with Amazon to provide cheap postage for them, but everyone else has to make up for their lost profits...  :-\

Just for fun, I took a quick look at the Royal Mail website.  I entered 60g for the parcel weight, and it shows two almost reasonably priced options of "Royal Mail International Standard" at an online price of 5.05 and "Royal Mail International Economy" at 4.25.
