Sitestuff: Price Tier Adjustment

We've been sorting out our server with the assistance of our lovely hosts and have a much nippier site :) We've also made a few adjustments -- some of them are nice. Some of them aren't.

We'll do the not-so-nice one today.

We've had to readjust the price tiers as, due to the sheer amount of sizes and options we offer, they were taking hours to administer and it all turned into a bit of an admin nightmare. Our Etsy shop was also growing out of control and something needed to be done, as the whole operation was turning into something resembling a government IT project (inefficient, doesn't quite work as it should, chaos all round).

Anyway, most prices are now rounded up to the nearest £1, which won't make a difference to most of you, but some people may find that their preferred size has gone up in price a bit. Conversely, some other people will find that their preferred size has actually gone down in price.

Many apologies if this causes confusion and sadface, especially as there was an all-round price rise only in April, but unfortunately it was absolutely, positively, definitely neccessary.

On  the good side of things, we've also made a pretty hack stock level check thing that works quietly in the background, and indicates whether your preferred size is in stock when you order your plugs -- if it's not in stock it won't be displayed. No more having to check a stock level page, it's all done automatically now. Well, it should be, but if you experience any problems or the site starts acting in a bizarre manner, then please let us know.

Here is a quick, at-a-glance price list that I must print out and put in my organiser because people ask me how much things cost and I can never remember.
