Default EdcorEurope

Anybody managed to buy OPT's from EdcorEurope?

The Company holding the franchise is not a million miles from me, I asked for a quote for 2 XSE15-8-5K and to my suprise I got a quote back almost immediatelty.

I replied giving my address and asking for a PayPal Invoice and that's the last I heard from them.

I have sent e-mails to both the EdcorEurope address and the guys Skynet mail account.

I asked EDcor USA about the nickel option to one of their products and it took 10 days to get a response.

These guys are slow.

Having delt with Edcor USA a few times, I can say they are kind of old school. Meaning that it's better to deal with them and place orders by phone. If your doing a custom project they transfer you to a technician to get your requirements, which is good. I think they only take web orders if you have a business account with them.

I'm not sure if Edcor Europe is the same way or not.

I never got the promised email confirmation from Edcor USA
after speaking with them about it twice. But in about 2 weeks,
did get my transformers. And no complaints regarding Edcor
iron once it arrived.

I don't know if my experience was typical.

Never had a problem with Edcor USA at all and Brian or Phyllis usually respond within 48 hours

For non-account or delivery questions, like technical questions and stuff, you can use their forum:

Cheers!

I can also attest that it is much better to talk to them on the phone. Sometimes they respond to their sales email within a day, other times I do not get a response. They are always helpful over the phone, though, and things happening quickly after that.

I have done three transformer designs now and have gotten email responses within a couple of days.(Edcor USA) Apparently business is good and they said that my order placed last week would take three weeks to build.

Klimon:

Here's the quote I received:

"Thanks for your mail.

There's no Euro pricelist anymore as the USD<>Euro is way to unstable.
We sell XSE15-8-5K at 29,20 euro each .

Shipping to Brussles is 6 euro.

We accept both IBAN and Paypal, albeit for the latter at 4% extra to cover the expenses Paypal charges.

I need your address to make up the invoice.

Kind regards,

Tony"

I sent my address (twice) and thats the last I heard
