    Large payment for "coffee", I have no idea who from.

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Someone did an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) to us yesterday which appeared in our account today (23rd Feb 2012).

    Gotcha is they used the description of "Coffee" and we have no idea who it was from as all their bank sent to us was "CBA Coffee" and a dollar amount.

    This happens often which is why we ask that you please use the invoice number in the bank EFT details field.*

    Neither the Commonwealth bank or Bendigo bank pass across the users name so we cant even find it that way and the transfer was for a round number that isnt the same as any single invoice in our system.

    ...so until someone says "did you get my payment" I have to assume it was a tip for great service.
    ;D

    Guess the amount and the closest gets half and Faircrack gets the rest. 8-)

    Well... it took a month but I found out where it came from.

    Turns out it was a commercial customer that was getting ahead of himself and pre-paying for future orders.

    Its pretty cool to have a product good enough that people are willing to pay in advance for what they might order in the future.
    ...also cool that such good customers exist in what can sometimes seem like a world of scams, shams and business based on mistrust.

    8-)
