My source said this... is this bad?
"just to let you know that
we are closing our doors to new customers june 15th due to the major
increase in buisness! so for anyone that hasnt ordered by then will
to wait till the next new customer time, this isnt intended to be mean
but it helps us keep the great customer service for our clients!"
...seems like he's trying to rush me into buying, i want to wait a month or two till i get money. Is this a bad sign? He checked out with a couple mods.

A good source is hard to find. Can you blame them for being cautious??
06-07-2004, 11:05 PM #4
I agree with what these guys are saying. He is being cautious. I cant blame him for that. Get your gear now, you dont have to use it now or see if he will let you order later on. Just stay in contact with him.

Just order if he checks out, if you don't have the money get another source.

alot of times sources are 'open' sources and then close their doors to new buisness unless they new customer goes through some sort of referal process.

Ive seen a low key source have his name posted all over these message boards a few months back and it caused him to stop taking orders for quite awhile. Sometimes it is being safe and other times it is the fact that he has enough business and doesnt need anymore. Point is, you cant complain if you are too late for the sale. Gotta get in before the rest of the crowd.

who's your guy? i don't want contact info, just an idea. I'm wondering if we're ordering from the same person. If you'd prefer, you can pm me.

he is making a smart move...he wants to kepp TA quick, and stocked up...with the increase of orders on a daily basis you wouldnt belive how rediculas it is...this lab blew up quiker than any ive seen...within week they were getting international orders!!!
no pressure from them...wait if you need...but it could be a month or 2

He isn't rushing you....he is doing the right thing and most sources have plenty of business and could care less if someone orders 2 bottles of test....

it's not unheard of. i think that if you already have his list and have had correspondance with him, there wont be a problem ordering a later date. do whatever you're comfortable with. i definately agree that it is a smart move on the sources' part closing his list to new customers once he has a good customer base that he trusts. there are some very very good sources that operate that way.

Yep. When sources try to take on too many clients, their business really suffers. If anything, it means your source is a smart guy and you are in good hands.
06-08-2004, 01:53 PM #15
yea, sounds like he's being smart, and if he checked out, well dont worry =]
06-08-2004, 02:20 PM #16
sounds like you gotta good one bro, don't stress and just go ahead and get the gear you need as of now
06-08-2004, 02:24 PM #17
It sounds alot like the same source I am using. Don't worry he is legit and he definitely has great customer service!
06-08-2004, 02:28 PM #18
I don't think it is bad a guy I know had his source post the same thing a month ago. He was trying to anticipate how much to process. There is only so much they can make before the quality starts to suffer no matter how hard they try.
My guy also said that some of his sources old customers didn't even get the post he got. He thinks he was "thinning the herd" so to speak to deal in higher volume to less people (less risk)
