Mouser order - share the $60 shipping pain
« on: October 13, 2020, 06:46:42 AM »
I'd like to order some stuff (tweaking an Olevia (actually Audio Source) 100 amp -- couple of changes to some caps and resistors and better pots.

About $70 worth of bits -- but shipping is $60. So if a couple of people want to order some stuff in JHB and split the costs... otherwise it's &^&$#@* RS Components...

Roger, you seem to be ordering directly. There is a local Mouser agent, to my understanding. Have you tried them?

Seems legit (I gave them a call, useful to know about nearby resources).

They don't carry stock, are agents for Mouser Electronics.

I believe Electrocomp is a local Mouser agent

Other option is ElectroComp. You can ask them to order the stuff that you looking for and they will add it with there shipment. I did this with IC's that I was looking for.

Ah ok, that could work. Let me try them. After finding all the bits and adding it to a cart, I was crippled with sunk cost bias...

If you order online from TRXE then you dont pay for delivery, they order from Mouser.
