Selling more on eBay to go with the website  15/5/13

I don't always like eBay, it can be quite expensive to sell items and prevents me offering an A.S.R.C.C. member discount but there recent changes that have extended some free listing entitlements to sellers classed as "Power Sellers" such as myself. "Power Sellers" met certain requirements for feedback and experience and suggest chekc eBay FAQ's for full specific details. The recent eBay changes basically make it cheaper for me to list on eBay so will be using it more for an assortment of cars. Just click on the eBay link at top of this page next to "Find Us On" and you'll see what you may have missed. Not all eBay cars are or have been listed here. Cheers Dom

Do you want to save 10% on your purchases, do you have a liking for Scalextric?  15/5/13

If if's a yes to both of these, suggest you have a look the Australian Scalextric Racing & Collecting Club (A.S.R.C.C.) website www.scalextricaustralia.com for benefits of membership (including 10% off this website), events, limited edition club cars and other Scalextric slot car related information. There is an annual membership cost but it is a relatively small outlay of $40. I am proud to be on the committee of the A.S.R.C.C. and through "Slot Cars Alive" sponsor the monthly journal, Club Lines.

Over 300 separate items listed on the website........  15/5/13

With so many cars listed I hope there is something that takes your interest. Appreciate it may take a little while to load the photos for all items but but hope you enjoy scanning through what's there. If I don't have something of particular interest on the website, let me know and you may find I have it and can list it on the website for you. Hope you enjoy having a look.

Payment Checkout Problems - Expected fix by 17/03/2012  11/03/2012

Hi, I apologise for the inconvenience of the website checkout not working at this time and I am very regretful this has occurred in my first 4 weeks with the website. Some unexpected & I feel unneeded requirements from Paypal have restricted my new paypal account and therefore the checkout mechanism. Paypal are reviewing proof of purchase and postage for two recent items to be comfortable of my account status and this should be complete by Saturday 17 March.

Please email me dominic@slotcarsalive.com if you have any queries or questions and we will be back up and running with the checkout very soon. I would like to end by highlighting my customer experience is excellent with 650+ 100% positive feedback and paypal sadly don't want to know about this or take a holistic customer view.

15 more cars added including a number of SRS racers  25/02/2012

The latest cars list at the top of the results if you show all cars.

The 15 items added include complete collection of the Premier League Ferrari F40's (C2147-C2153), new McLaren UK Slot Car Festival (C3330) and a number of boxed and unboxed SRS racers which have the chassis you can tune from the 1990's, made in Spain.

Hope you like them.

Always Seeking Feedback, email dominic@slotcarsalive.com  15/02/2012

Hi all, The FAQ's and website is coming alive with extra content and people requesting to be added to the mail list, very exciting! Just as exciting, cars are starting to go to new, welcoming homes.

I am hungry for feedback and your thoughts to make your experience even better.

The question I have for you? What is important to you with buying your next rare & collectable Scalextric slot car and how can I help make this easier or more satisfying?

As you get to know the website and experience looking for and buying slot cars I encourage your feedback, whatever you want to share to make your experience better.

If you are thinking it then others may also feel the same way, so I encourage you to mention it. At this time please email me dominic@slotcarsalive.com. Cheers Dominic

All Postage is Registered Australia Post with Insurance  15/02/2012

Postage rates have been added to the Paypal Checkout process. For simplicity using a sliding scale that increases slightly with the total value of an order and reflects most order sizes will go up in size as they go up in value.

All postage sent is Australia Post Registered Post with insurance and this is for your and my peace of mind plus our reputation as I want to offer an excellent customer experience and worth the small extra cost to ensure your parcel of collectable and rare slot cars arrives safely.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and embracing this approach. Cheers Dominic
