I think if the part number is seven digits, you need to add zero at the end for the DS computer to accept it.

Playmobil say if the order is over £30 the postage is free.
Also try and keep the number of spares to under 50.

Make sure you move to Germany, so you can join the 1st rate customers...
Switzerland and Austria are in the Common Reich too I believe, presumably Liechtenstein is also or maybe Robber Barons still control the passes there, I'm not sure.

I placed a small order (12 of one part) by email on Monday and had a quote by email on Tuesday, expected delivery time 7 to 10 days.  The total was just over £32.  I couldn't find any prices on the UK site so looked at the price in euros on the main site, and the price of £32 was more or less £1 = 1 euro.

I'll keep you informed.
My order arrived today.

I have just placed a large order of 50 different parts. I'll let you know how long that takes!  ;D

I made a parts request on 7 July and have heard nothing. I have just resubmitted the request and suggested they please fulfill the first 50 lines. Let us see....

In the last 36 hours I've tried to check on the availability of a number of spare parts, both from old and current sets.  Each time I have had the message "No building instructions found" (they haven't bothered to amend the website to take account of the building instructions link now also dealing with spare parts), which makes me wonder, Is Playmobil+ not operating again?

I had to search on playmobil.de, 'Ersatzteile finden', but a couple of the lines in my recent order were for items not found there. I was half-expecting Basildon to come back and say they weren't available but they've processed the order, so looking good!

Feeding back on parts not available can be a bit hit-and-miss. Near Christmas, they don't do it at all, but at other times it may just get overlooked. But hopefully you will get everything you ordered!

Good news for me; they had 'overlooked' my email of 7 July, but have now processed my order!
