WEEK TWO – to 0700 GMT 15 May 2010
In the past week we have sold the following:
ALOES – 3 copies
DEAR MISTER PRESIDENT – 8 copies
END OF THE TRAIL – 10 copies
SEA CHANGE – 3 copies
We have also added customers in three new countries, Denmark, Finland and the Russian Federation.
I can’t give you response time details this time as I am away from my own desk – currently working on a terminal in a public library – but these will certainly have come down, as we had one of 18 hours 42 minutes in the week.
I can also report a second great review for Jane’s END OF THE TRAIL, which is to be found here. Congratulations again to Jane on impressing so many reviewers!
We are still looking around for an alternative to PayPal; this seems to be taking longer than one might reasonably have expected, but we want to make sure that we get it right. We are not looking for anything that wants a signing-up fee or a large monthly fee; anything that takes a manageable percentage on each transaction would work for us. We also have enquiries out with a potential agent in the USA who may be willing to handle credit card purchases for us, but unfortunately such decisions are not arrived at overnight and it may still take another week or two to sort out. Likewise, the .epub spectre is still haunting us; we need one more line of code in our work-around, but as our technical genius is up to his ears in having a new bathroom and kitchen installed at the moment and it is impossible to schedule any time with him this is also going to have to wait. Rome was not built in a day, alas. (Even they needed to take time out to install kitchens and bathrooms!)
[EDITED 20 May when I got home and did a recount of orders received while I was away.]
[ETA: To complete the statistical information, average response time was 6 hours 10 minutes for the week.]
