  2. No minimum. Saves any hassle or explanations to customers. They're not interested in your agreements and liabilities. I was in a shop behind a customer as the owner explained why the customer couldn't pay by card. It struck me as a bit unprofessional, so dropped minimum immediately. If a customer wants to pay card something under £1. (My supplier's minimum) I would either give it to the customer, or charge them £1 on a card, and give them change in cash. That said nearly everything in my shop is at least £3, with the exception of key tags. Anything I was selling for £2.50 i will be selling fo

  3. Sorry, it's not my policy to give key codes to unknown people, maybe your landlord doesn't want you to have a second key!!! My advice would be to have the lock changed, keep the old one and replace it if/when you vacate. You have no way of knowing who holds keys to your rental.

    I don’t think by the time you’ve paid postage both ways you’d be competitive on pricing. Buy a tormek and do them yourself.

    A husband and wife go to a counselor after 15 years of marriage. The counselor asks them what the problem is and the wife goes into a tirade listing every problem they have ever had in the 15 years they've been married. She goes on and on and on. Finally, the counselor gets up, walks around the desk, embraces the wife and kisses her passionately. The woman shuts up and sits quietly in a daze. The counselor turns to the husband and says, "This is what your wife needs at least three times a week. Can you do this?" The husband thinks for a moment and replies, "

    Contactless payments

    Yes I have been asked to put 15p on card. No cash, no cash point to go to. My contract has terms whereby I cannot set a minimum charge. I would, and have, given away small items to customers with no cash but it is not the road to go down.

  16. That's not likely to happen though is it? If they come in the shop for only a 15p tag and didn't have cash I would give it them and say drop it in when they are passing again.

  20. Are you just removing and cleaning or a full refurbishment? if it’s just a basic clean on a cheap watch I would be looking for £10. If it’s a refurb it would depend on how complex the polishing would be but probably around £45

The company is run by Ian an Steve Jackson, but now use a postal address at Cassidy House Chester, but still work in Egerton street chester. They use a woman known for being over close with one of the brothers called Kelly Griffiths, who’s name is used to front the company called Embrace Education selling Barney Echo books

  34. Hi all having a lockdown brain fart. Decided to clean install all my engraving software onto a faster computer, running XP as my engraver IS400 Volume does not run on anything else. Everything went well, sneaked into work and hooked the engraver up to new machine, tried to do a test engraving and nothing, on engraving screen test button ok but port button greyed out. I am using an add on port to the computer (all drivers loaded and working recognised that I had dongle in when loading software) I am sure its a simple fix, but this is a week now and I am stumped. Hoping that super smashing guy B

    You need to add a generic text only print driver, pointing at the right port. Then in software, click Engrave, config machines, right click, properties on your machine, click Output and choose the driver.

    We would just order one in and add a small percentage onto the price. Why limit yourself. We have sold in the past light bulbs, toilet rolls, taps. If a customer is happy to pay why not ?. Some old people do not like using the internet so are happy to pay for all manner of strange items as long as you make a profit that's all that matters.

All accounts will be pro-forma (don't blame them either!)
