Re: Honeymoon in Greece! So the 1st night sunset was really magical we ate dinner in the pool area watching the sun go down..

Friday...About 10 hours later at 5am we woke up to watch sunrise and shoot some drone footage (got some cool footage but i really didn't know how to shoot with these high end drone cam)
So are activity for Friday was the 6h private boat tour for 350 euro which you will see form the pics were absolutely amazing. We booked the private tour with “ZanteBlueshore”
(Highly recommend them we spoke to some other people that used other company's nothing was like what we did and much more expensive)
(Now as a heads up to anyone that is going to any kind of boat tour you need A TONNNN of sunscreen we were like burned toast!)
Alex was our driver we had an absolute awesome time, we started out early so we can get to the shipwreck beach before all the big tour boats come around and it gets very crowded it was a about an hour boat ride, We were there for about 30 min min it was pretty much empty when we got there and when we left we SAW ALL THE BIG BOATS arrive so perfect timing.

From there we went to the underwater caves which were beautiful you can literally count the sand on the ocean floor (and in some places its a couple 100 ft deep) it suppose to be the clearest water in Greece, From there we went to the coolest sulfur (might be hot springs) it's randomly in middle of the water it stinks like rotten eggs from like a mile away and there are like tiny white pieces that look like eggs to so i was a bit hesitant going in but Alex pulled me and it was well worth it.

Wish there would be a separate thread for food in Miami, and then everything else. There almost 10000 posts now it'll be way to tedious to separate it now.
its all in the wiki thanks to @jj1000 and @Alexsei  for updating it!

Re: Selling on Amazon Master Thread Welcome to the club ;)

what i do with a boxes that are sold as is, ill wrap it it 1st with clear make a single box label and then warp it again and put on the pallet labels, this way i dont have to label each individual box and the costumer wont get a box with fba label on it.

Im not sure what u mean by   "how exactly do i prepare the shipping on Amazon" do you know how to create a shipment?

Yes you need to label every box although u can choose to skip it and amazon will charge X amount per box.

please elaborate a bit more and the other 2 questions and ill try to answer to them best of my ability

Re: Selling on Amazon Master Thread
lol thanks, basically i have 4 different "SKU(products)". all of them are boxes(=unite) that sell as is (aka a box of diapers)
1 - 80/box - that it's a pallet.
2 - 48/e, 3 - 12/e, 4, 24/e - that fill a second pallet.

now when i creat my shipment on Amazon to send it to fba, i did as a pallet, but its still showing me 165 labels, meaning that i will need to put on every single box.

the question is, can i create a "box"(pallet) that will have 80 unite of the same sku inside?
and a second "box"(pallet) that will have 3 different sku inside ?

or a pallet can't be called a "box" ?

*of course i will arrange and ship with mine carrier to them ..

so lets say u make 2 separate shipments (its the same if u make 1) the 1st (lets call it  FBA80) should go as 1 box so you sending in 80 unites of diapers and at the Box content information u will put in 80 unites in 1 box, now the same goes for (2nd pallet FBAmix) u put in 48 in 1 box 12 in 1 box etc...  u will end up with 4 box labels  and u can also choose "one sku per box"

Re: Selling on Amazon Master Thread
so if i understand correctly, for shipment 1 it will be 1 box of 80unite (but in reality its 1 pallet of 80 box).
it's not an issue with them? that it will not be a physical box ?
being that the actual box is going to the customer u don't want to put a box label on it this is the best way IMO and it saves u from having to label 80 boxes
I have been doing it ever since they implemented this stupid system never had any issues...


March 06, 2019, 03:50:31 PM

Re: Selling on Amazon Master Thread
and for the second shipment, i can't find 1 box that will fit 48 boxes inside etc ...
so if i put them all together, (meaning 3 rows from the bottom, separate with a carton, and then 2 rows for a second sku, and again a carton to separate) this will be fine ? and count as 3 boxes ?
Are these boxes sold as is? if yes then do as u said i do this with pallets of 10 15 diff skus any item that is going to the customer the same way im sending it in (meaning amazon wont repack it) it gets done this way i do separately wrap them and put the box label an the wrap.

Re: Selling on Amazon Master Thread


other question, how do i know if i need to add an asin on each box, or the original IBAN/EAN etc is fine ?

Easiest way to tell is if the FNsku matches the ASIN u can also choose to use the manufacturer bar code, now if when y try to replenish a item and there is a error u know they wont allow it

Re: Private Shechita - what should I order?
Here is a wonderful Yid who cares about Halacha so much He will either go without meat or uses a private Shochet . So the obvious question is , tell us more ? What about Beis Yosef ? Melicha standards ? Bedikos ? Etc
But instead he goes off the rails and starts hiding behind Chabad !
Oh I am sorry , I mistakenly thought You were a God Fearing Yid who did his own research. Turns out it’s all about being very CHABAD. 
What a let down

Nothing is already done. The cows are still walking on all 4. I can request it whichever way I want.

I gotta say, I'm incredibly impressed of what was pulled off in this thread. When I saw the original post my first thought was that this is a massive waste of time, but I'm happy to be proven very wrong.

Major kudos to @chayal101 for taking the initiative, to @ruv and everyone else who helped bring this to fruition, and to the publications running it for free or at a discount. Well done, and may it bring good results.

Re: Manhattan Kosher Restaurants
The Top Restaurants close to Park Hyatt Are Mikes Bistro and UN Plaza Grill (though a bunch here dont like UN)

If you are willing to go downtown you have Reserve Cut which is highly rated and might be the best Kosher steakhouse in the city and the new Wall street grill which is still working out its kinks

For something a little more reasonable in price look into Le Marais which is a classic tourist steakhouse or Wolf and Lamb

I know @@yehuda would kill me if I didnt mention La Brochette in the latter group as well
I would throw in Noi Due Carne IMO its better than Mikes and Le Marais and cheaper ( closer than Reserve) and UN Plaza

Re: Manhattan Kosher Restaurants
He wasn't asking for the Top or highly rated restaurants.
Fuego is highly rated and i think @mochjas gave a good mix of whats available and nearby, its never going to be exactly alike. and if your looking for a burger joint i would recommend mocha burger(although im not the biggest fan)

Re: Manhattan Kosher Restaurants
The only reason I didnt throw it in is because I dont see it as a steakhouse and it seems he was looking for a steakhouse but it is a great option as well

Re: Manhattan Kosher Restaurants
All these options seem really great and I appreciate the responses. We are more flatbread , steak sandwich and fancy burger people than the big hunk of cow chevra.
Any place as well for artisan pizzas?
so try mocha and habaita is pretty decent for pizza.
