BitcoinStore Plans to Take On the World of Online Electronics Retail with BTC

...
The idea behind the project is to not just provide electronic goods for BTC but also to show the market that it’s possible to make good money trading physical goods with the cryptocurrency. In fact, due to his connections with suppliers and distributors he is able to bring prices to BitcoinStore that will rival even Amazon and NewEgg in prices.
...
In order to stay afloat, BitcoinStore will need to take a large number of orders a day. The challenge will be more than just getting the servers to handle that many orders—but also to get enough influence and interest in the Bitcoin community as possible to bring in customers.

Got them to fix a typo which initially said the store only offers 5000 items..

My personality type: INTJ - please forgive my weaknesses (Not naturally in tune with others feelings; may be insensitive at times, tend to respond to conflict with logic and reason, tend to believe I'm always right)

They have crazy good prices at bitcoinstore. It's just a shame that the interface isn't as polished as what you would expect from a major electronics website. I've ordered once already though, and the service was great.

How can they have such good prices?
Are they selling at a loss? Not paying taxes?

There MUST be something deep there.

My anger against what is wrong in the Bitcoin community is productive:
Bitcointa.lk - Replace "Bitcointalk.org" with "Bitcointa.lk" in this url to see how this page looks like on a proper forum (Announcement Thread)
Hashfast.org - Wiki for screwed customers

By using nonreversible BTC, the store has a 3%-5% pricing advantage over any stores that must pay credit card processing fees and write off fraudulent chagebacks.
