    VeryPC webshop is now open!

    Hi folks,

    The VeryPC online shop is now officially open!

    I have been going on about it for a while in the various competition threads we run, but the time has finally arrived. Our online shop is open and ready for business. From an online transaction point of view it is aimed at our home user customers, which is why the prices are full retail, but we still offer our significant discounts to education and volume purchasing customers like the IT techs and managers of the EduGeek community (like it says on the shop, just give us a call for a discounted quote).

    Whilst we don't expect schools, businesses etc to do their buying through the webshop, we do think that it will act as a really useful tool for you to browse our computer products and get a rough idea of the prices of the different units and configurations of each. Most of the products listed have loads of configuration options so you can see how the price is affected as you adjust the spec before you decide to contact us for your discounted quote. If the spec you are looking for isn't one of the online options though, just get in touch with us and we'll do you a custom quote matching your specific requirements. We can customise a computer any way you like (within reason!), so it would not have been practical to list every single possible option online.

    You can take a look for yourself right now at shop.very-pc.co.uk- if you feel like it, we would really value your feedback at this early stage to help us tweak it to perfection.

    Our MD @VeryPC_Andy has also posted a news article on our website (https://www.very-pc.co.uk/blog/verypc-online-shop-now-open) to announce the shop launch.



    ...and before I forget, I promised that I'd mention a few of you in the webshop announcement post so that you get a notification and don't miss the launch, so @mac_shinobi @hardtailstar @Rawns @X-13 @StevieM come on down!

    Looking forward to reading what you make of it.

    Al, the VeryPC marketing fella

    For 'home' shoppers, is there a way to enable prices 'with' VAT rather than without?

    Edit: Ignore me. I opened a product and see it has 'with' Vat prices too.

    Is there a 'Discount code' field at checkout where if you put in 'BRING ME THE BOX!' you get an additional 98% off?

    It does look nice, and I like the customisation stuff. Especially the fact it says how much the different options are. [Is Win7 home REALLY the same price as Win8.1?]

    Can I just clarify. Are you saying that the educational discounts are for products bought for school use, or do you mean that because you are incredibly nice, you are offering discounts to EG members for products purchased for home use?

    Just underneath the non-VAT price is the VAT one.

    It'd be good if the edu discount was viewable. Even if it was tagged on an edu account as a customisable item.

    Yep - that's coming in a future update. We decided to keep things simple for starters and will be adding more products, options, accessories etc as we go along.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    We wanted to lead with ex.VAT as we realise that most of our early browsers will be folks like you from schools and businesses etc, but of course the inc.VAT is there on each product page as you spotted.

    For that discount code you should get it for free surely, but fired at you through a giant cannon across the skies of Britain.

    Yup - remember that Windows 8.1 IS the 'home' option, not Windows 8.1 Pro
