The new Melangers are in and all back orders have been filled. Also, all the larger units (Spectra 20 and 40) have been sold. There will be more in around May. If you would like to reserve a unit (or more), please contact me via email. The Spectra 20 is $1000 and the Spectra 40 is $1600. Both prices include s/h for the 48 USA states.
As for shipping, rates may look a little confusing for a bit. We are in the middle of implementing live UPS and USPS rates, so the choices may look odd until we fully implement. For instance you may have the following as a set of options:
UPS Ground $7.85
USPS Flat rate $9.00
4-5 lbs $8.45
UPS 3 day Select $17.56
That third one is our current system but would still ship UPS (unless you have a PO Box of course). The others are real live rates. Choose whatever you want (who am I to say you can’t pay more in shipping if you want ). One caveat and sincere request. Please make sure your shipping address is correct. We (the developer and I) have found a bug that if you have a typo in your address (Cresthill vs Crest hill for instance) the software will return a lower than actual value (not sure why, that is why it is a bug). If that happens you will see a double charge on your credit card when your order is shipped as the shipping amount is adjusted.
Also, on other caveat, I am leaving the various Rush shipping options available, but PLEASE contact me know if you need something fast. Right now if you were to choose Next Day Air, I would ship it Next Day Air BUT can NOT guarantee it would go out the same or next business day – the 48-72 hour shipping rule of thumb still applies. I will bend over backwards to TRY and get it out the next day (we never ship same day without notice – orders from the previous day are packed the day after they come in at the earliest) but communication is the key. We don’t get that many rush orders, but I thought you should be informed.
