@PINE64 ngl I missed the word "online" the first time and for a few seconds thought there were going to be physical Pine64 stores

@PINE64 @avery maybe sign me up as a retailer and I'll let folks swing by the lab to try before they buy...hmmm... :blobthinkingcool:

@djsundog @PINE64 @avery

I wondered if local hackerspaces could serve as "test-drive" locations for gadgets like these.

I would love to see a nerd petting zoo replace the idea of computer stores being hte only way I could touch a piece of technology before I buy it.

@djsundog @PINE64 @avery

It would be lovely to try out a piece of gear with an enthusiastic nerd rather than a frothing salesperson asking if I want a warranty.

@djsundog @PINE64 @avery

Honestly, I was wondering if becoming a retailer could be an option for funding projects.

@djsundog @PINE64 @avery

I already have a business up and running. What would the requirements be to become an reseller?

@PINE64 Excited to see what this means for shipping timeframes and for larger adoption as a whole - looking forward to see what January brings, excellent writeup!

Excellent initiative! Wish you guys success, and consequently a reduction of tickets on the main store. 3,000 emails a month, yikes!!! 🤪

@PINE64 This is AMAZING news. I've always cringed a bit whenever I see your notices about the prices sometimes coming in at a loss for you guys, and I'd be happy to pay a bit more if it means helping out the amazing people responsible for these devices!

@PINE64 make the 'community' store only accessible via SSH, require the order to be gpg encrypted with a PINE64 key, and it can only be submitted by putting it on some NFS mount. Just some ways to guarantee only those who can order it are probably part of your target audience...

@PINE64 A kiedy będzie sklep w Polsce? Kiedy będzie można zamówić sprzęt bez bandyckich opłat za przesyłkę.

@PINE64 This is a really good decision. As more and more regular (as in non-Linux-enthusiast, non-developer) people have ordered PINE64 devices, it's great to see that they are building a way to properly deal with the additional demand for support.
