    Hiya,

    First of all, I'm not complaining. [​IMG]

    Play are my supplier of choice and have given me first class service every time.

    I was just wondering - and this no doubt applies to other companies as well - how do they make enough money to keep going?!?

    With the slowly rising cost of discs in the High Street - Gladiator and Fight Club are £25 in some places - then surely Play are making a loss on a lot of the discs they sell at less than £18. Even DVD Plus with their inspired cost price e-tip system are more expensive in most cases after adding postage!

    How do they do it?!?

    I could be wrong, but I dont think we pay vat on r2 disc's from Play, because they are from Jersey.
    Correct me if I am wrong.

    You are correct, Thats why all plays packages are marked under £18 (the duty free limit)

    Don't know what they do with titles ove £18 but most of these seem to be more expesive so prehaps play ships these from within the UK with vat already added.
