Store will close on October 1st, 2020
As you may have heard, Discogs is planning severe changes in the way sellers have to manage their sales here on Discogs. It only takes a quick look at the Marketplace forum to see that the way this is being implemented causes a lot of frustration among sellers. It takes a lot of time to set up shipping policies, which are full of bugs and are constantly being changed. Many sellers spent hours on setting up policies, only to discover that a few days later the policies are no longer working because Discogs implemented once more changes that were not communicated upfront.

And not only that. Because postal services all over the world use completely different tariff structures, it's impossible to set it up in such a way that you, as a buyer, pay a fair price for shipping and handling. Sellers tend to overprice shipping now because they don't want to lose money because of the shortcomings of the policies. And especially if you're buying more records, the calculations are surely not to the advantage of the buyers. Also, sellers are limiting the regions to where they want to sell because of the effort it costs to set up policies for each region and country. So the net result is that sellers are forced to spend lots of time, and you, the buyer, will notice that you cannot buy from all sellers anymore and are potentially paying a higher price for shipping than you should.

I'm not making a living out of selling records, I'm mainly selling items from my own collection which have to go to make room for new additions. I have a full-time job and really cannot afford to invest this amount of time in all of this. Also, this is not the first time that Discogs implements changes that are clearly not in the interest of the community, and at some point it's just enough.

So the way it looks now my shop will stop working on October 1st 2020 as I refuse to spend time on setting up shipping policies. This means that if you would like something from my shop, please make sure your order is placed before October 1st.

To all customers who have been loyal to me in the past 11 years I would like to say: thank you for your support and thrust.

Be assured that my stock will surface elsewhere in due time, and should Discogs come to their senses and stop this implementation, I may return. But for now I've had enough of it here.

Goodbye.
