Ordering CDs from trente oiseaux:
21 June 2021: trente oiseaux stops selling/shipping CDs until further notice.
Bernhard ( both CEO and staff at trente oiseaux ) has, after a pandemic-induced joblessness lasting roughly 11 months, found a new job paying for his rent and various other needs. The downside to this really good news is that he is working extremely long hours, and therefore lacking the time to fulfill CD orders.
Payments and taxes:
Payments are made by means of Paypal - a Paypal account is not required, however. Trente oiseaux is owned and run by Bernhard Günter, who is registered with the German Tax and Revenue Service as a 'small entrepreneur' (Kleinunternehmer) according to § 19 UStG and therefore exempt of charging the German VAT. All prices quoted on the trente oiseaux websites are thus net prices.
