Nous sommes bien conscient que les frais de port paraissent élevés. C'est un prix déjà  négocié en colissimo poste qui sont les moins cher du marché.
En fait, les frais de port pas cher, ça n'existe que sur les gros sites de vente ( amazon, fnac, alapage ). En tant que petite structure, nous ne pouvons pas avoir les mêmes prix que ces boutiques là . Un explication de texte s'impose :

En passant, si vous commandez sur amazon, ils ne font pas payer les frais de port eux car ils ont une grosse marge ( et nous on perd des sous en passant par eux ).
En effet : ils achètent le livre à  14.22 euros car ils demandent 50% de marge sur le prix public de 30 euros ttc ( tva 5.5 %). Or nous nous devons leur envoyer les livres et avec ces frais de port d'envoi entre chez nous et paris, le prix d'un livre vendu par amazon devint négatif pour nous : (14.22 - frais de port d'envoi vers amazon ) < prix de revient.

Si vous commandez sur notre boutique, tout est au prix de revient exact ( pour les participants ). Donc opération blanche. Pour les non participants, vous pouvez calculer la marge exacte sur notre site est de 30 ttc - prix participant.

Voila. Je tenais à  ce que cela soit précisé car c'est un vrai problème finalement pour nous.

You can simply edit the telephone number in the adress settings.

Ok, this is where I got to just now.

I started at the beginning through selecting 'Buy' from the main menu options. I then selected English as the language (top right-hand corner).

Rather than try any existing passwords I selected forgotten password and then did get an email with a new password.

I logged in using successfully using the new password. I then chose the option to go to 'Book' and added that to my cart. Then I got a quote for mail, since I am in UK, and added that into order total.

Going to checkout, the system echoed my home address - from when I first bought APP a lifetime ago. I confirmed that that was the shipping address. I then went to the next stage but was asked for a telephone number. Can't find a way around that.

Go to "my account" and then into the adress book. You can then edit the adress and add you phone number. Thats what I did and it worked. There still seems to be a problem with credit card payment (at least with Visa), but Alexandre said, they are working on it.

I will translate the comment I've made for shipping cost.

"Yes, we are aware that the shipping cost seems high, but in fact, it's the best a small editor like us can get for such a projet. Cheap shipping cost only exists on big website like amazon for example. As a small company, we don't have access to that such costs. Moreover I own you some explaination on how it works behind the scene :

You can in fact order the panobook through amazon too. They won't charge you for shipping cost ( at least if you are in france ), because they have a huge gap between retail price and the one they buy from us the book. Retail is 30 euros with vat, the buy price is 14.22 euros from us. That's their policy, 50% of the final price. We cannot change that. The problem is that it will cost us something to send book to amazon. As the real production price is around 12 euros, we'll have 2 euros to make the shipping. No provider can send a book of 1.2 kg with 2 euros. So every time amazon sells a panobook, we'll lose money. Amazon will make profit, for sure, but not us.

If you order through your website and if you are a panobook participant, everything is the real price : panobook and shipping cost. No hidden stuff. That's what we pay to "La Poste" for the shipping. If you are not a participant, the only benefit we could made is the difference between the production price around 12 euros and the street price 30 euros. We just hope we'll get enough of them to compensate lost done through amazon.

BTW : we tried many other shipping company, "La Poste" was by far the cheaper. Fedex, Dhl, it was around 50 to 60 euros per shipping but they have a 2 days delivery guaranty.

I just ordered 3 books, and they are already shipped! Thanks a lot Alexandre and the Kolor team :)

PS: I don't think that 9 euros is too expansive, a book, it's heavy!

Don't forget to mention another thing: The books need to be packaged properly, so they survive the treatment of the shipping. As this book is quite heavy, this is also a task, which takes some money.
I am looking forward to see the book with my eyes.

I followed the tip about going to my account and adding a telephone number. It worked. I have now successfully bought the book and I have had a confirmatory email.

Alexandre, what an enterprise, well done: look forward to seeing the book before my family do.

Suggestion: could you do a sticky post, in both languages, giving step-by-step advice about the process. (That could include a reminder about which password is in question: I think there are three accounts - buy, wiki and the forums. I tried the buy password I used originally but that did not work. Is there a reason? Note: the format of this password was 8 uppercase letters, no numerals)

Ok, so what do I do? I told it to send me a new password and got a completely email response back. Even to upload images for the book I had to get the password reset, because there didn't seem to be a way to change it after the fact... maybe that was changed in the meantime, but now I am totally in a pickle.
