Yep.  ;D

I ordered a number of titles from him, just before he started regularly using the store (he had the store up for a few days, with just 1 or 2 titles, but what I ordered wasn't on the store).
He advertised on twitter and elsewhere that he was looking to sell his stock (a number of retailers returned all Code Red stock to him). I contacted him, he sent me a list with titles and prices, and I selected what I wanted. First, there were a number of days without any reply. I emailed him asking if he received my order, and asking for the total amount, and he said he was busy, and didn't have the time to go to the postal office. A number of days passed, no reply. I contacted him again, and he "complained" that my order was too big, and that he had to find a big box, or even split it into more than a box (it wasn't that big; it was around 8 titles), and only then he could give me an amount.
My order ended up shipping over 2 weeks after I selected my items.

Considering he was practically saying he was ruined when the retailers returned his stock to him (I don't remember why exactly, but it had something to do with a return policy for unsold stock, funnily enough), when asking people if anybody wanted to buy his stock, and considering I paid, if I'm not mistaken, $45 for a sealed copy of the OOP DVD release of Primal Rage alone (not my brightest moment  ;D), I would have guessed he would be a bit happier with my order, but even then he surely didn't want to have the "hassle" to sell something.

He doesn't want to do the selling, and he doesn't want to hire someone to do it for him.
I'm not sure what he wants.

Reminds me of my ex-girlfriend...  :-\

He was complaining the other week that Twitter was quiet and wondering if it was dying off like MySpace.


I pointed out to him that he might want to follow more than 13 people...


He complained about that too.

He's upped his prices now for international shipping, plus an additional $1 for a card mailer. Probabaly get my Code Red's from Diabolik in the future.

the fact he uses Paypal to process his transaction means that people are automatically entitled for a refund for non-receipt of items. Considering this is very open to abuse, he might want to make sure his orders are all either 1) insured and, or 2) they are all sent with delivery confirmation.

Not sure he is aware of this, judging by his latest "policy" is to not refund for non-receipt.

Don't tell him that or he'll ban international orders altogether! He's already blacklisted Canada  :-\

He is aware of this. That's why he is always complaining.
But as a customer, I have to ask: why the hell should I care?

I never gave any order to reverse charge anything, I always paid for everything I bought, and I never scammed anyone. Why the hell should I have to listen to this crap?
He is the one who should get his act together, and take appropriate measures regarding his business, instead of bitching to his potential customers.
If he doesn't want to have any work done, he can always hire someone to do it. There are plenty of companies that can handle the whole sale/shipping/customer service aspect, for a minimal cost.

It's a shame. I like supporting these smaller labels, but Bill makes it really hard to care about his company, and releases.
His brother is doing a totally different job with Scorpion Releasing. Maybe he should ask him for some tips on how to run a business.

Totally agree. And I was planning to place an order with Code Red sometime soon, when I checked the site, a lot of the titles I was planning on buying are gone. I wonder how long I will have to wait before they show up again?! Its sooo annoying.
