Great!  I know how dedicated you are to what you do, how soon do you think I’ll be able to get my hands on one?

iSkin: we have them in our hands now and are preparing our website so that our resellers can order and start the process of offering iSkin to their customers. Should be within 7 to 14 days.

Maclear -zip- we had a small problem in material but that has been resolved yesterday and today they will start up production again and before the week is out we will start to ship.

China offers many opportunities to a foreign company like ours but sometimes we have to deal with suppliers trying to change material on us, when this happens we put a stop to everything to get it sorted out and if necessary have material flown in to us from Japan or Taiwan or Germany. That is expensive but we are not prepare to make our product with nothing but the best

So if the resellers are going to have them in 7 to 14 days…. when do you think I’ll be able to get one?  Any chance I could get one from you directly?  Would that be faster?  Only reason I ask is because I’m going to be traveling for 4 months, and I’m really going to need the iskin.  If you need a tester (I’d pay for the iskin of course) or if you could get it to me faster by contacting me directly, you can reach me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

####,, i saw the new iskin at your site, and it is SO cool!! by i already ordered my maclear,, when the new iskin goes on sale, can we not include the maclear and get it a little bit cheaper?

the zip case is a promo. It is used to display the new exo case in the stores. It is too big for the ipod on its own, it can be use to protect the iskined ipod when traveling or for the connecting sync and remote

If you are a reseller and buy 10 you can get it for 40% off.

you can get a 10% discount for 3 and 15% for 5 iskin protect on one order.

So I cant use the macclear zip case with the ISkin? I was hoping to use both of them together as the zip case would protect the scroll wheel and buttons.

oh so u mean that the zip that comes with the iskin has a different size from the one that is on sale by itself?

After reading all these posts and some from the forums i have a question:

- is the maclear zip readily available to order and be shipped (internationally)?

Posted by j.doe on July 18, 2003 at 9:26 PM (PDT)

92

Well we are in China, we have distributors in the USA, Canada, Europe, Asia so we are nearly in all parts of the world. Where are you from?

Posted by Lajo on July 18, 2003 at 9:43 PM (PDT)

93

australia. sorry i should have been more specific and ask if your distributors send to aust.

Posted by j.doe on July 21, 2003 at 4:30 AM (PDT)

94

its not clear from the pictures if it the case has hole to enable access to the HOLD button.

Posted by j.doe on July 21, 2003 at 4:33 AM (PDT)

95

Yes we can send to Australia, we will ship anywhere in the world.

I have to accept the blame as the factory, their product will arrive today or tomorrow in New York and then they will be in the position to ship you your order plus bonus zip case for the delay.

You should be jumping down by throat because of all the delays.  Thank you for being so kind. Let me know how you like the cases when you get them.
