Even more about shipping (and 2CO)

Valdi has confirmed on their forum that they will charge extra for shipping and that it will be done trough UPS globally. They don't know how they will charge for it, but either C.O.D. or payment in advance in some way (Hmm, some way to get money after all?). They still don't know how much it will be however.
2co has also changed their view somewhat and saying that Medison hasn't been clear enough about the shipping charges. They are still trying to figure this out with Medison, but in the meantime they say that customers can refuse the delivery if there is any charge for shipping, and receive full refund for the purchase.
Now, this opens up for another question: Since Medison don't have any initial economical assets, what happens then if loads of customers refuses the shipment and Medison is charged them self with double shipping for thousands of orders? Is the shipping partner aware of that economical risk?

EU har sen 1997 direktiv om distansavtal. Även om Medison bryter mot lagen så har alla konsumenter bla ångerrätt. Se speciellt 2 kap 6,7 §§ om informationsskyldighet i svenska distansavtalslagen www.riksdagen.se/webbnav/index.aspx?nid=3911&dok_id=SFS2005:59&rm=2005&bet=2005:59

Medison kommer få stora kostnader när folk ångrar sig och inte tar emot varan. Om Medison verkligen är ärliga och ska försöka leverera datorer, så är de oerhört naiva och kommer snart att sättas i konkurs. Undrar verkligen om de haft något juridiskt ombud som de påstår sig ha.

Please, everyone - use English on this site! It's a site for everyone, and never mind how bad your English is, it's better than most people's Swedish...

I think COD is out of question, as everyone could refuse the shipping which could lead to quite high costs for Medison. They won't ship anything, that's for sure.

Paying shipping charges in advance is more likely. Probably some people are just to hot for the celebrity (and don't know this blog) and as soon as Medison emails them they are willing to pay for the shipping charges in advance by wire transfer, Western Union, PayPal, whatever - thinking the company is reputable as they use a well known payment system like 2CO.

Medison takes the shipping charges and is up and away. 2CO was then just a way to make the scam more credible and instead of making $150 per order, they still could make $50 or something.

I just don't know why 2CO is still accepting orders. It's for sure, that 2CO has to refund it all back and medison won't pay a bit. Either, they just use the payments for collection interests or pay unpaid bills or they have something different in mind.

Refunded stuff makes 2CO more respectable company. Thats why they still accept orders. I think they figure out clearly that Medison is a scam, since they able to manage business, unlike Valdi does.

Sorry, but simple question, I bought 2 celebrity on 25 july, and there are not charge for the delivery.

And now? I want to cancel order, without official comunication (by mail)? Mmm is strange so strange!

Then any know when celebrity laptop are delivered?

Ive personally talk with Valdi, and I think is a good person, so I don't think is a scam...

"Refunded stuff makes 2CO more respectable company."

But who pays the credit card charges (i think about 1-2%) for the payment processing, then? When Medison in bankrupt, 2CO would have to pay for the processing themselves, wouldn't they (or do the credit card companys refund processing charges to the processor when he's initiating a chargeback - to me, that's quite unlikely)? It just doesn't make sense, that 2CO is willing to pay for all that bullshit on their own - as long as they are really not using interest marges or hoping someone would not initiate a chargeback.

I still think, just to support scam in order to show that you refund stuff doesn't make you respectable. The opposite is the case. They should stop processing payments as soon as there are policys broken.

Shipping costs is rather irrelevant. Medison is not going to ship anything, you know.
It is a scam, you know.

They ARE relevant as they will have to be paid in advance. It's not about shipping or not (we all know it's a scam), it's about if the shipping charges are now the way of Medison to make some money...
