Hi Zands, thanks form posting. Actually family and friends is no fee to anyone. But if someone says goods and services then it gets charged 3% plus I look like a merchant

Zero fee if taken from your bank account. But 2.9% if taken from credit or debit card. I was unaware of this distinction until now

I wished I would have seen the post sooner. I will take a perforated one if someone backs out.

OK Folks, Buddy tape is here and I ordered a bit more to cover late comers. Price would be $18/tape plus $2.75/shipping per tape, plus $1 for tracking confirmation (applies once).

I want to send with tracking. Hope you all understand. here is the deal

1. Cost for 1 tape - $20 plus $3 for shipping.
2. Cost for 2 tapes - $39 + $4 = $43



Going forward, I will ship with USPS tracking and no signature confirmation. Please understand that if USPS loses the package I dont want to be responsible. If you are ok on taking that responsibility, it will save you $2.7, OR you can pay $5.9 as shipping costs and get it priority mail which seldom has issues of getting lost.

Thanks
If anyone wants priority mail, send $18/tape and $5.5 for shipping.

Send paypal payments to infofiles@gmail.com, "Goods and Services option". Please clearly specify your name and address, and your forum ID/alias for identification. Tape will be available to ship starting tomorrow.

Thanks

That's funny!  Because now I like to use both paraflim and buddy tape!  It just depends on the situation.

the only thing I can say bad about buddy tape...is that it doesn't biodegrade like parafilm...I find it's necessary to pick the tape off of the scion after the graft heals.

Adam, confirming that manufacturer says that Buddy Tape biodegrades in 5-6 months. They also don't recommend using any rubber band Or other forms of tying the union. this would eliminate the need to remove the tape and allow tape to biodegrade naturally in 5-6 months.

Not sure about Florida weather but California sun degrades the tape nicely. Adan's grafted plant from a year ago is just breaking the tape now.

I also use parafilm+budding tape half the time when tying thicker harder wood that need to be forced together. I'll try the double layer method next time.

double layer method works very well. I was quite impressed with how strong tie it creates. again, stronger the tie means once scion is heeled you remove the tie to prevent girdling.

everyone, note that I changed shipping. Signature confirmation is too expensive, I charged $1.9 but it costed me $2.7 so I took hit on all shipping so far.

Going forward, I will ship with USPS tracking and no signature confirmation. Please understand that if USPS loses the package I dont want to be responsible. If you are ok on taking that responsibility, it will save you $2.7, OR you can pay $5.9 as shipping costs and get it priority mail which seldom has issues of getting lost.

Just about all ebay stuff I get via USPS is delivery confirmation only. No signature confirmation. The sellers feel protected enough with just delivery confirmation

are group orders for buddy tape a thing of the past?

I'm looking to order both buddy tape and parafilm early this year!

maybe we can somehow do group orders again?

Have we reached the 'send money' stage yet?  If so, how much per roll and to what address do we make the payments?  Is it the same as last time?

I'd like a non-perforated for wrapping scions. I always get pieces left over after wrapping with the perforated one.
