250,- Euro for Marcos (petrol).
100-150,- Euro for Albin (Endymion) for ferry
800,- Euro for the shipping (it includes the 250,- Euro for the Exporter)

total 1200,- Euro for 50 Kilos = $1628.64

45 species ordered / $1628.64 = $36.20 a bag.You will need to add $36.20 per a species ordered import/gas fees and taxes.

EXAMPLE
36.20+31.28=$67.48 15fish/67.48 = $4.50 per a fish.

We are working on getting the cheapest options for reshipping the fish to you guys. We can use UPS, USPS Express, and Delta airlines. For the large orders I think Delta airlines would be best.

We have a couple of updates to add to the list. Once we are done we are going to start collecting the money for the shipment. You have time to change fish species till Friday 26. The fish will be shipped out in the middle of April. If everything go's well everyone will have their new cichlids by the end of April. No dates for shipping have been set as of now.

I've been asked again about guarantees, NO GUARANTEES.

This is a group buy, people need to understand, if the fish show up to SFO dead, there is no refund. If all fish die, you of course are not going to refund everyone, we are SOL. The mods and members here are all taking the same risk. If you have one or 2 dead in your bag no refunds. They have using this exporter for some time with great success. I feel we will have great success with this shipment.

Regarding the "NO GUARANTEE"

Each bag will be delivered with the individuals name on it from Europe. So it will be treated as if they are all independent shipments. Each bag will have a name set forth by the web page which shows who is getting what.

In the event that your bag(Delivery) comes in DOA and another member has the same fish come in alive, you will be placed on a list with that member to receive fry from the first spawn. Shipping of course will be the only cost in getting the fry to you.

If the other member who received live delivery chooses to split his bag with someone who receives DOA that will be up to the member, but not a requirement. The only requirement I will set here for this order is listed below.

Regarding members who have ordered the same species as someone else.
If XXXXX receives live delivery and XOXOX receives a dead delivery, then XXXXX will need to be sure that XOXOX gets fry from the first spawn.

This is the only guarantee we can offer on an order like this. If both Species come in DOA then we all lose on that species.

SHIPPING FEES.

If Big Jim and I are shipping your fish to you from California. The totals you have paid or are going to pay do not include trans shipping to you. The shipping fees to get the fish to you will be figured out once the fish have landed.

Options will include AIR to the closest Available airport to you and USPS or UPS. We will make these choices based on your region and the assumed delivery success to that region.

Again the totals you are paying now only include IMPORT shipping fees to get them into the country.

Based on the current number of bags coming in with this order we are recalculating the fees per bag. Originally there were less bags and the shipping fees we figured based on those bags. Now there is a significant number of additional bags so the shipping will be broken down again across the board. Each bag in the box will have an import shipping fee attached to it. This will lower overall import fees for all members participating in the order.

Regarding side orders and changes made to the original order this has caused much confusion. Please be patient while we get the numbers sorted out.

Allen

We have to also add in the $20 x 2 = $40.00 for wiring money to Marcos. I'm going to wire the importing fee to Marcos the last week of March. The fish are all paid for.
