Purchasing through Kramm.

Has anybody managed to establish if any of the MDS-Modell suppliers accept PayPal?  :worried:

I'm loathe to buy in continental Europe because of the evil Bank Charges and exchange rate premiums, credit card numbers in the ether etc, all of which PayPal manage to hide quite well. :D

Charges are a fact of life so like Dave, I don't worry too much.

I'm not sure Paypal is any 'safer' than any other way...indeed many think it is worse.

I won't use PayPal. Exchange rate they apply is far less than my MasterCard, and with my card I don't pay any fees on top. Simple, fast, efficient service from all the German retailers I've used. Postage charge varies.

Each seller has their own details on what payment styles they accept, either on their home page or within their terms and conditions. Suggest you check each one out.

Surely you meant to write paypal exchange rate is far more than mastercard?

Now you come to mention it....  :doh:

Yes, I get a better exchange rate with MasterCard, or more bang for my bucks. Thanks for pointing out my error.

I've ordered my 4 vans from Kramm in Germany. I'll pay by Credit Card if MDS-Modell ever deliver them. Everything is still 30 days away. :'(
 
Moving back to PayPal, it seems instead of charging a flat 1% fee for sending money to "Friends and Family" outside the UK, now they are going to levy a charge of 2 +3.4%. Given their normally disadvantageous Exchange Rates it looks like what was a pleasant experience has become a "No Go" zone. I'll just buy dollars at the Post Office and mail them in a magazine! :(
 
The old ways are Best! ???

From details supplied by MDS on their website and in an email, MDS have made it clear from the outset that the wagons will not be available until the end of March. Like all things, I suspect this is a best hoped for date, subject to the usual vagaries of industry, and will, I suggest, be the very earliest that they will ship to orders received. Actual receipts by buyers could therefore be well into April.

This 'end of March' date also apples to all the locos bar the two analogue plain red versions that, I hope, will be shipped sooner.

I wish this company and its foray into the RhB market well, and will patiently await deliveries as and when.

However, a failure to produce on or near the due date, say end of March target so end of April actual as the site still says +30 days, will colour peoples opinions in  a similar but lesser way that people feel when other companies claim prototypes years before any meaningful work is done.

I would feel more comfortable if there was a photo of an undecorated sample wagon on the website.

Just my simple, customers take on it not being a manufacturer, shopkeeper or in any other way committed except by reservation.

Not sure if it is legal to link to another UK forum but I give it a try (I hope I post this in the right thread, don't want to keep the moderators busy with PMs from members asking for it to be moved)

Picture of a MDS Model Haik-v on the RMweb forum.
