countdown for Lonesome Rider special pre-sales offer started

I started the countdown for my Lonesome Rider full bottle special offer: Feb. 15 I will end it and we will go back to some sort of normal state of works.

Shipment of these will start end Feb. Uff. (US, CH and DE/FR shipment of full bottles only)

Somewhen between now and then, I have to finish labelling and packing them. Today’s picture gives you an idea. Again: I am in for a change there which is nice. I got so tired of the sticky labels. But the rest of the packaging will be the same.

So far, this whole lonesome rider thing, all the activities and talking about it was fun and quite explorative, with a new payment interface that works ( and a blog ( that works, too. And me and my US shipping friend, we are busy shipping samples. There, in the sample program on the lonesome rider website, I tried something new: The client can pay the price he/she wants. I just define the shipment costs of 4$.

So far this worked very well, but yesterday, I got an order of 50 (five zero) samples that a particular client bought for 10$ (one zero). Which means: 20 cents per sample. That’s less than what I pay for the sample vials. And, clueless as I am, I posted about it on facebook and my friends there commented: So I learned through their comments that this is probably a reseller (I did not come up with that thought). My FB post was not entirely clear, and more of the sort “would you “, like “would you sell it” OR “would you buy it”?

Some interpreted it as: I am selling 50 pieces for 10$ and were all enthusiastic 🙂

The world is full of misunderstandings.

Anyhow: Besides this one order, I am happy with the sampling program, too.

Finally: Will I ship this 50 pieces order? No way.
