Bob I have got mine through group buys which were brought in from USA manufacturer. Boss aquaria sells them - maybe speak to Jay as he would know more about costs for larger numbers. I looked into buying from USA myself but minimum purchase was for 100 and I didn't need that many.

Or you could ask me ...

Remember our Asta groupbuy from Kensfish.com?

 

Kordon 9 x 16 Breather Bags

(Qty 25) is USD $16.95 and an extra USD$4.45 shipping.

(Qty 50) is USD $31.95 and an extra USD$4.45 shipping.

(Qty 100) is USD $59.95 and an extra USD$4.45 shipping. <- $0.60/bag !!!

 

(Note: shipping is the same for up to 100 bags)

I haven't placed the order for the asta yet, still waiting on a couple of people  : TEARS :

So if you want it, let me know.

You have my payment details.

Just pick a quantity above, and convert to AUD using 0.7778.

eg

QTY 25 - $16.95+4.45 = USD$21.40 / 0.7778 = AUD$27.50.

<edit3> - you might need to add $10 for local Oz shipping to the above.

 

Get the 100. Someone else on SKF will need some.

 

<edit> - other sizes available too.

check it out here. http://www.kensfish.com/cgi-kensfish/sb/productsearch.cgi?storeid=*14884f2aaab140560cc4d786

 

<edit2> - if you were to buy it separately, instead of with the asta groupbuy, you'd pay USD$45.75 in shipping alone. You'd be saving $41 in shipping.

Serkan,

 

there is an Astaxanthin groupbuy going on. I got tired of typing astaxanthin and abbreviated it to "asta".

 

Waiting on one more person to pay for the astaxanthin powder.

If I haven't heard from him by tomorrow morning, you can fill it.

I thought Ken was out of the breather bags.

Didn't know that.

Website says nothing about being out of stock.

Bob,

are you in or not?

I'll let you and Serkan decide how many you need.

I can add it to the asta order and you guys pay for the bags and the difference in shipping.

I wouldn't mind adding 25 breather bags. Since no one wanted my culls in Perth I may as well give them to other members.

 

Can you confirm if I have to add another $10 for postage before I make payment?

Disciple and Northboy has already paid shipping within Oz for the astaxanthin, so I'll change your shipping to parcel post instead, which works out to be another A$2 plus the cost of the bags.

 

$10 shipping within Oz for KillieOrCory, plus the cost of the bags.

 

But before anyone transfers money to me for the breather bags ... 

 

KillieOrCory and Northboy,

please call out the quantity and size of Kordon bags you need asap.

I don't want to hold up the asta purchase.

 

<edit> Serkan said any quantity. So it depends on Northboy.

I need them in 100 lots, will PM you, I just go finished packing for the markets tomorrow after work today.

 

I just sent the PM and if payment can hold until Monday, I will get 200.

 

Air freight has gone stupid price wise, I got a bill for 2 boxes to Melbourne at 22kg, are you sitting down, $286.00  2  F e n  boxes and that was on an account. post is the way to go, it is not as fast but cost efficient

Thieves mate....... The greedy buggers can smell the money from all the online transactions.

Funny thing is the amount of parcels must be increasing at a phenomenal rate yet they are screaming poor. Go figure.

Northboy, KillieOrCory and Disciple,

I'm going to work out your costs here.

You 3 will be splitting the US to Aust shipping cost of USD$18, which is USD$6 each.

 

Northboy (200 bags)

USD$120 plus USD$6

Conversion to AUD = USD$126 / 0.764 = AUD$165

Shipping within Aust = A$13 - 3kg parcel post (I don't know how heavy 200 bags and your astaxanthin is going to be, but the 3kg parcel post bag is a safe bet).

Northboy's total = AUD$178.00

 

 

KillieOrCory (100 bags)

USD$60 plus USD$6
Conversion to AUD = USD$66/ 0.764 = AUD$86.40
Shipping within Aust = A$8 - small parcel post bag.

KillieOrCory's total = AUD$94.40

 

 

Disciple (25 bags)

USD$17 plus USD$6
Conversion to AUD = USD$23 / 0.764 = AUD$30.10
Shipping within Aust = A$2 - small parcel post. Since you have paid for the astaxanthin shipping, this is just the difference of upgrading your shipping to a small parcel post bag.

Disciple's total = AUD$32.10

No problem Bob. Arranging the group buy wasn't hard, but managing payment and chasing people was tricky.

 

The 75 unallocated bags are currently reserved for Serkan, if he wants it. But if I don't hear from him, or if he declines, then it's open for everyone else to purchase.

I'm happy to pick up the slack if Serkan falls through also happy to go halvies if anyone else is waiting in the wings.  Props to Jayc for organising... IME group buys are often more work for the organiser than they need to be!

Cheers mate.

You're on the list as my first contact if Serkan doesn't contact me by the time these bags arrive from the US.

I really hope he is okay.  :unsure:
