First Purchase From AllPosters.com, Satisfied

Just before the weekend I ordered a few ‘door posters’ from AllPosters.com and I genuinely forgot I had ordered them. There was money sitting in my PayPal account, enough to cover the investment, so I placed the order and arrived home yesterday to find a note from An Post – failed delivery, collect tomorrow, foreign package (not from the UK).

Foreign package? Still hadn’t a clue.

So it was a genuine nice surprise to arrive at the post depot at 8:30 this morning, having witnessed the school bus in front of me skid sideways on the ice, to collect said posters.

Pay by paypal, speedy delivery from the US (4 days), and studio B is about to get decorated with door size posters from Trainspotting, The Godfather and Scarface.

How very “cribs” of me.

I was part of the affiliate program for AllPosters.com a few years back, when KKM first started but I can’t say that I’ve actually bought something from them until now. The swaying point? PayPal. When I got to the checkout I was thinking “wouldn’t it be great if they accepted PayPal”. Partly because I couldn’t remember where I left my wallet, but also because of the funds sitting in the account. Some online advertisers pay direct to the bank, some direct to PayPal and rather than put the transaction on my credit card, wait 7 days for a PayPal request to send money to my bank account (while losing a euro in process), I can purchase straight away.

AllPosters.com, I’ll be back.
