[news] Swedish Tanabata Matsuri sold out, for now

A little update re: selling the Swedish TM single. You will be able to buy it for £4.5 through ebay.co.uk, including shipping, simply because it's much easier to manage and it's safer for you than just handling it through LJ and mail. However, there will be a delay since, according to Megastore, the single is sold out. Approximately 1500 singles were printed and it would seem they have all been sold - except for some that remain at Ginza.se, for example. This _could_ be good news in terms of getting onto the chart. But we shouldn't hope for too much. For one thing, it could be that HMV have got hold of many of the singles.

Grammotex, the people behind the Swedish singles chart, got back to me re: the single and pointed out that physical singles make up a very small part of the singles sales these days. From what I can see, only one single out of the sixty on the list is not a download version, and that one was sold in connection with one of the biggest concert tours this summer. So, in conclusion, what killed TM's chances of making it onto the list was JE's ban on digital sales. This is why foreign companies should always listen to people who actually know the local market.

Also, there were clearly too few singles printed. Positive thinking, that. Could be because no one felt like promoting it... *grumbles*

There WILL be more singles printed, but since everyone's on vacation right now, I'm not sure how long it's going to take before they're ready to be shipped. I put in an order with Ginza, so we'll see if their stock lasts. In that case, I will sell those on a first come, first served basis.

ETA: The Ginza batch was delivered today, so the Ebay listing should be up fairly soon.
