UK parts now available to order via website
« on: February 16, 2023, 15:46:44 »
I’ve just done a DS order and was inquiring about further parts and the DS agent pointed out that the UK site now lets you search and add to basket to make orders!

…however, it does seem to not indicate items in stock that I’ve just ordered, so I suspect for the more odd pieces, might still be worth asking the DS agents.

I don't think Find Spare Parts is working on playmobil.co.uk. As UK spare parts orders are sent to Germany, you can use the Ersatzteil Finden on playmobil.de to determine which parts are available. The prices are in Euro, rather than £ Sterling, which means what you actually pay is less than at first expected  :D

Update to above, as per my earlier message stuff is coming up as out of stock (like it does on DE) but I’ve literally made an order with things such as Fi?ures heads and skeletons that supposedly aren’t available.

When you check if an item is in stock, are you putting in the part number without spaces or with spaces?  If the latter, then the part number will not be recognised.

Without spaces. I currently use an iOS Shortcut I made to sort all that out.

I suspect some items don’t appear in stock (both DE and now UK), but the DS agents seem  able to source them. When I get time I was going to start a thread on all the Fi?ures heads I managed to get from them.

Tbh I’d like to lose the days of dealing with the DS agents (as lovely as they are!), as find it so cumbersome rechecking sheets to find a typo snuck in. But looks like for the more odd pieces might need to still. It got to the point that I have quite a detailed spreadsheet template that auto creates links to Playmodb and Playmobil DE (now UK) to quickly spot errors. It got messy when an agent would randomly remove items between queries…

Unless now they’ll redirect me just to the site which will be frustrating. Things such as Klickys, heads, torsos, arms etc they seem to be able to source but not listed on the DE or UK site - for example I got the mustaches pirate from the Asterix advent calendar via them and a few Conquistadors.
