    No problem. That's fine you have the UK site and ship within EU.
    Let's see how it goes after Brexit...
    I mean, UK is a market so close that It's a shame if one must start paying custom fees.

    Hi,

    I want to say that I just purchased a used Oly OM-D E-M5 from them and they (esp. Clare) have been super nice and I got a great price from them!

    So I definitely intend to purchase stuff from them in the future.

    Just a comment. It would be good if you accepted PayPal.

    Bought a Panasonic 14-150mm from mpb, got a good deal and the lens is great. Nice vendor to have around!

    Over the years, MPB (UK) have successfully managed to divorce me from a fair bit of my income. I think the last purchase was the m.zuiko 40-150 Pro f2.8 with dedicated teleconverter.
    One of my E-M1 bodies came from them too.

    Great service every time.

    Any current promos for US customers? There are a couple of items on your site I am interested in. Also, are you accepting Paypal now?

    Checked out the site.
    Unfortunately they consider Hawaii a "foreign country"
    and wanted $54 to ship a $25 item.
    Not really such a good deal for us "foreigners".

    Hi - apologies for that. We're working on introducing more areas that we can deliver to at a lower cost so this won't be forever! Clare

    The solution is so simple for the US anyway - use the USPS flat-rate boxes.
    Inexpensive and the same rate to anywhere in the US, including Hawaii & Alaska.
    The boxes are free, come in several sizes and shapes,
    including large padded envelopes for small items.
    The PO will even deliver the boxes to you for free and then pick them up to ship.
    A ready-made solution you could start using immediately.

    But you're a "company", so I imagine you'll need a management meeting,
    so you can appoint a committee, so they can study the problem
    and "explore the options" and prepare a report
    to submit to another management meeting
    so they can make a decision.

    Shouldn't take more than 6 or 8 months . . . :2thumbs:

    FedEX and UPS are rip-offs to Hawaii.

    Come on, spdavies, don't be this hard on them :)  quick whois and company look up for MPB (EUROPE LTD) suggest their first started in UK, then expanded to EU and only after (I guess) launched US operation. Sure, it won't take 6 months to Mr. Matthew Barker (MD or CEO?) to review your valid point :)  Take care

    Thanks - I will pass this on. As Balinov has said below - we're still fairly new to the US which is why we don't have this introduced yet.

    Looks like you've done your research! Yes he's the CEO (the founder of the company). Clare

    Bought quite a few times from them, probably the best UK used dealer there is.
