Hey, it looks like I most likely be starting this service soon. I had an idea for a way that you could buy the ftos without having to do it all through speedsolving dms or emails. I would take your orders, mod the ftos accordingly. Then I would make it a private item on ebay, and send you a link to the fto so you could then buy I through there. This would make it so you don't have to give me any personal information or anything, and it would make my job of shipping it out to you guys a lot easier. What do you think about this?

no matter what you will end up with the customer's personal information to ship it to them. this includes their name and email address.
selling on ebay takes away like 6% or 10% for fees. with paypal family and friends money transfer it is free. Also note that you can ship directly using paypal. So I would go with that unless you prefer ebay.

I would rather do it through the forums, as eBay takes 10% and I trust you

If Ebay, would it be still only US shipping? I would rather do through ebay, because its easier to convince my parents that its a good idea.

Okay, here are the final prices of my modded ftos:
$30: Sanding down all pieces and cutting excess plastic, and moding the core (makes the cube turn a lot smoother and less lock ups)
$35: Sanding down all pieces and cutting excess plastic, modding the core, I also install washers and springs to improve the cube
$40: Sanding down all pieces, cutting excess plastic, installing washers, and springs, modding the core. And also setting up the cube and break in

NOTE: I do not apply taxes to any of these options. And I only ship to the USA, depending on where you live in the US, shipping would be anywhere from Free-$3

Please PM me if you are interested in one of these

For folks outside the US, your best bet is to find someone in the forums you trust to proxy for you.

My limited experience with international shipping is that it is heavily dependent on weight. It may cost anywhere from $10-$30 which may still be worth it for international customers.

Okay it seems like there are many people that are interested in this service currently. I'm not 100 percent sure that this is gonna happen but here is what I'm thinking pricing would be like.

$25: Sanding down all pieces and cutting excess plastic, and moding the core (makes the cube turn a lot smoother and less lock ups)
$30: Sanding down all pieces and cutting excess plastic, modding the core, I also install washers and springs to improve the cube
$35: Sanding down all pieces, cutting excess plastic, installing washers, and springs, modding the core. And also setting up the cube and break in

What do you guys think of these prices? These are just rough estimate for the time being.
they are pretty awesome prices.
