Default High Quality Parts Dilemna

Have been looking at this site, www.topqualitytools.co.uk , and want to order some capacitors, unfortunately for the life of me i cant see how you add items to the basket ! i admit to not being computer savvy but this has got me stumped , looks like they have a fair selection of components on offer well worth a look . can anyone see where i am going wrong ? hope this is in the right place.
Regards, Tim.

Nope, me neither!! Have just spent 5 mins trying and I can't see any way of getting things in the cart!! You would have thought that people would make it as easy as possible to order things but then, abysmal websites seem to be the norm these days!!
Cheers
Nick

Try the grey box with a downward pointing arrow at the top of the screen, then set up an account.

Just a note: they don't sell from their web site. It's all via eBay:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/top-quali...1&_ipg=&_from=

I've ordered piles of stuff from them over the last couple of years. Very reliable.

I think some of the stuff is literally bought off Farnell and chucked in a bag or something though for a big markup. It's worth shopping around!!

Very odd, scroll down the items in the link above and suddenly prices for everything leap up to astronomical figures

A lot of stuff is ridiculously priced. There were selling AD ADCs for 85 when Farnell were selling them for 7. I think they have some automated pricing software or something. This ends up in silly pricing like a used copy of a book you want for 1,759 on amazon, a problem I regularly see. Like I said shop around. There are some bargains though.
