His methods of preferred payment are so awkward and risky (Please send cash in the post, No, really it's fine :) ) Agree with Lesley, He should start using Paypal.

Oh well, in that case I'll send him an order and tell him I can only pay by Paypal and see what happens.

I first purchased bulbs from Dr Pilous in 1996 and he has always used the same methods.

Although it might be more convenient for us if he used Pay Pal given that he seems to sell everything he has available there is little or no incentive for him to change.

He has proved totally reliable in all these years and I have never had any difficulties with him.

Surely not a problem on an index linked teachers pension.

Even if that had been based on fact it has no bearing on the individual economic problem in balancing means and ends with alternative uses!

It's easy to set up an international bank transfer with online banking using the bank account details (IBAN, etc) that Vlastimil has included on his seed list. I have paid him safely and conveniently by this method on three occasions now and can confirm that it is safe and hassle-free.

Me too; I just do a bank transfer online.  It takes only seconds and is secure.

PayPal does not require that the recipient is a business or has an account.

One can send money to any individual and in this case the sender pays the fee which is
very low - a couple of dollars.

I found Vlastimil Pilous from this thread and ordered seeds a little over a week ago and received them today. Very nice and though some seeds were already finished I got some very interesting peonies, and most of all I'm happy to get P.parnassica seeds. Also wild collected P.veitchii from China will be interesting to see in a few years. :)
I paid directly to bank account, very easy when we have the same currency.

I sent an order on 23rd December and have heard nothing. Now trying a follow up but expect most things will be gone.

Update-had a speedy reply as expected from Dr Pilous and mine have been in the post for a couple of weeks so hoping they are not lost!!

Hi tony I'm in the same boat as you, I made my order not long after I recieved the list and have not heard or recieved anything. I might drop him an email later.

It seems I was lucky that the mail came fast.
I asked for the seed list by mail and he answered the same day with the list. I made my order and then didn't hear from him, but the seeds arrived so he must have sent them right after he got my order.  :)

I received an email from Vlastimil yesterday saying he had posted my order on 12/1, just hope it gets here, I've got everything crossed.

Hi all,
anyone wishing to pay for seed from Vlastimil Pilous need only to type in his email address and then the amount owing in the send money section using PayPal it's that simple.
regards John.
