    Outdated site
    Have to pay after the fact by check
    Often gruff, order too much? Complaint. Don't know a part number? Complaint.

    Of course pinsiders love it.

    I dont order from pbr. Its too big a pain in the ass. Getting part numbers is easy enough but I don't want to make a list and ask if he has it. Ask how much it is. Figure out shipping. Then wait to pay. It made sense when he opened, it stopped making sense over twenty years ago.

    Ordering from Europe, Australia, Marco, bay area, mad amusements, pbl and ebay have gotten the job done without putting up with it. Almost forgot big daddy as they are a breeze to deal with.

    Shitty experience does not make a rite of passage.

    #102 46 days ago

    i remember the first time i ever spoke to Steve on the phone. he helped me locate the parts i needed, and then...

    Steve: "Give me your address and I'll send them out today with a 30 day Invoice. Make the check out to 'The Pinball Resource", not me personally. And make sure you write the invoice # on the check."

    Me: "Check?!? I can just give you a credit card right now and square this away."

    Steve: **Grunt** "You've obviously never done business with me before."

    Me: "Really? Well, you're right, I haven't. But what makes you say that?"

    Steve: "Because if you had you'd know I never do ANYTHING electronically!"

    Me: "OK, but I found your phone number on your website."

    Quoted from WackyBrakke:

    I’m fine saying PBR isn’t for me. I knew that the few times I stumbled on the confusing website. It’s just a weird attitude to take, perhaps it’s not his main line of work and has no interest in expanding and making more money. Whatever it is it’s fine with me.

    I think it's more that he's busy enough and making enough money right now, why change?

    A new website costs money. Needs a developer. If you're taking CCs you gotta be PCI compliant. Sure you can outsource but still extra work to keep track of it all.

    So now PBR has a spiffy new website and the orders are coming in faster than he and Jimmy can fill them. Worse, neither has time to talk to or email their customers and fix all the f*ckups in the orders to help make sure folks get the parts the actually need. So they hire more people, but the new employees don't have nearly the knowledge Steve and Jimmy have. They just pack boxes, and now PBR is just another pinball parts supplier.

    Can you understand now that Steve simply doesn't want that?

    #104 46 days ago

    Guys like Steve is what makes pinball great. Unique personality, incredibly knowledgeable resource who can be incredibly helpful. Like most of us, (LTG being a notable exception) he has limited patience for the clueless. He will be candid and blunt and expects you to have enough info so he can help you. He is old school in every way, and given his product line that totally works for the majority of us.

    #105 46 days ago

    You want candid and blunt?

    Count me among those who believe it is rarely appropriate to deliberately be a jerk.

    Especially with customers!

    Being irritated because someone doesn't know as much as you do is counterproductive.

    Telling people trying to order that they are wasting your time, really? It's your freaking job. What could be more important than helping a customer get an order figured out? In a hurry to get back to playing Minesweeper?

    Is making people feel bad good for repeat business?

    And just what is so admirable about being stuck in the last century?

    But who am I to complain? If someone is happy satisfied with their old school system, undesirous of progress or improvement, and enjoys belittling people for not being able to find a part or its number on their website, thanks to its haphazardness and incompleteness, more power to them, I guess?

    #106 46 days ago

    I remember when I set up an account years ago and i was thinking to myself this seems stupid....pretty much had the same attitude as d0n, this is the 2009 or whatever it was back then.
    But once it was all set up its done. I still buy from him to this day along with other major players. Now i just pay him from an app on my phone when package arrives.. I would also assume if you are an American customer, can you send him an Etransfer?
    PBR great prices especially if you spend over $100 and great service along with decent shipping costs on most items....downside for me as Canadian ....parcels usually take min 2 weeks, Marco, Planetary and Pinball Life fair prices but better if you can buy in bulk and they have really stepped up their shipping prices lately and will receive in 3-4 days.
    D0n if you are an active pinhead like you say ....then I'm sure you will need PBR(Steve) in your life at some point or at least know someone with an account especially if you own Gottlieb.
    Just take the plunge and set up an account then its over and you can have enjoyable orders for years to come. I am sure there will be a day when PBR comes to cart based shopping but I don't see it anytime real soon.

    He’s not a jerk.

    In 20 years and hundreds of orders, he’s never once been “a jerk.”

    The problem is people mistake being curt or direct as “being a jerk.” Too many decades of having phony smoke you don’t deserve being blown Up your ass as Walmart policy.

    I’ll take Steve any day. He’s real.

    #109 46 days ago

    I first became knowledgeable about PBR when I was building my visual pinball machine in 2012. I stumbled onto PBR with a google search. My order person was a woman. She advised me about establishing credit by making small purchase. I told her I was surprised they had so many parts available. She replied, " He has 30,000 customers from around the world."

    When I brought my 1st pin home, a Stern Big Game, I needed parts and called. Steve answered the phone. I told him what I had and he said he did not supply for Sterns. I said, "well, would you be interested in trying?" I had already had established credit with my first buy in 2012.

    My first order for my Stern pin, along with some tools tallied up to $150.00. The order was here in 2 days. I checked for proper inventory and sent the check. But while I was on the phone making the order, I ordered some of those switch point files. Steve proceeded to jerk me through the phone line and said (actually yelled), "You don't want those for your pin. You don't use these files on gold plated switch contacts ! " His point was made and I never forgot.

    Steve is old school. He was an operator and knows the pain that comes when an earning machine is out of service. He ships fast. All of my orders are here in two days. Always. He ships fast, he expects fast payment. I don't have a problem with that.

    I like the telephone way of ordering. My cousin uses email. When I call and Steve answers, I give my name and my assigned PBR customer number. and tell him I am making an order and that I have some of the part numbers but not all of them. We get to work with the part numbers I do have, and then I tell him what I need but don't have the part numbers for. And he has always seemed to know what I need; You have to figure that all of parts are not in his catalog.

    With those parameters, he knows you have expended some effort to look up your part numbers and he is cool with the no-number stuff.

    I have asked him a couple of questions about some parts ( classic Stern flipper parts ) and he gets a little elevated. I think he does not like to say "no" but he has no choice.

    You all like his cheap price for parts. But surely you would not expect to get those same cheap prices if he was taking credit cards. Cards will bite a retailer with a 5% service charge. Would you be ready to pay 5% extra just so you can use your card? No, you would probably whine about that, too.

    Plus with credit cards, at the end of the month he has to tally the credit charge up and go to the trouble of making a payment to the credit card company. If he took Visa and not MasterCard, some of you would whine about him not taking MC. And then their is Discover. And American Express. He would have to hire some else just to handle the paper work.

    With 30K customers around the world I doubt he is losing any sleep if you decide you do not want to do business with him.

    During my last order, I asked if he preferred my to order via email or continue with the phone. He has no preference and said he learns things all of the time on the phone calls. With that, I will probably continue to order via the telephone.

    He has been around awhile and does not have to put up with any bullshit. And he doesn't. If you are in a business that allows you to do that then you are golden. You say that is bad business. Perhaps.

    When I was a professional buyer, it was common for buyers to get nasty with suppliers all of the time and most of the time there was no need to get nasty. But there was one supplier down in Ft. Worth that had a lock on its market. It had no competition. I had a couple of buyer friends get nasty on the phone with the order taker ( Her name was Mary Brown). The next thing these buyers learned was that Mary, and her boss, would no longer mess with them. So another buyer had to step in to get the order made. The message: Straighten up and fly right and be professional if you want to do business with us.

    Oh no! Steve is gonna label you as a "SLOW PAYER" and then you have to call him and beg him for your parts. LOL!

    Did he make YOU beg for your parts? You seem to know all about it

    Ive needed his parts many times. I have a bunch of gottlieb's... but refuse to jump through the hoops and act as if it's still 1989. I can't remember the last time I wrote out a check or sent a snail mail. I'm sure as heck not going to do it for a few pinball parts. I got everything I needed from marco. I spent $201. Imagine all the guys like me that are avoiding PBR and spending $200 somewhere else? How much lost income does that add up to in a year? I know, I know, steve doesn't need me or all those other guys $200.

    He did make me beg for parts and did label me as a "slow payer" back when I first ordered in 1991 or so. It's a freaking check in the mail. How fast do you think it's gonna get there? Did I send it? YES. Did you get paid? Yes. Then what's the problem? Well, I have it written here in my rolodex that you're a "slow payer" so grovel to me and tell me why I should send you my parts.

    Ummm, no thank you.

    I have a bunch of pinball friends that would order for me like others have mentioned they do in this post. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. I'll get it from marco or ebay or pinballlife. Life is too short to deal with PBR.

    I get it... PBResource.com is in the dark ages. Yes; they make doing business hard for the internet generation.
    I actually think Steve is setting behind his monitor sayin "no soup for you"... but at this point; I'm not convinced he actually surfs the web.

    That said; vent here. but you have to respect a person for wanting to do business his way. It's his right and your right to take business else where.

    Usually; I let google help me find the parts I want on their site. Or I visit the pages for the parts I specifically want. That PopCap page is... impressive.

    Depends on how you look at it. He is the only game in Town for some parts. That has kept him in business. Has he sold as much as he could have otherwise? Doubt it. Lot of people have gone elsewhere.

    Some of you will not recognize this song: American Pie by Don Mclean. In the early 70s. For years people wasted their time trying to figure out what the song was all about.

    Someone finally asked Don Mclean what the song "American Pie" meant. He said, " It means I never have to work again if I don't want to".

    Steve has his business. It is working for him and he does not have to do anything if he does not want to.

    So? Clearly he is not losing sleep over it.

    I buy plenty from Steve, even stuff available from other vendors. Good service, shipping and pricing.

    Also order from Marco and Pinball Life, plenty to go around and I for one am glad there are options. Several people have mention how good we have it, which was not always the case not long ago.

    #139 45 days ago

    Just to clarify, I was simply playing Devil's Advocate before. I have no problem with Steve running his business the way he wants to. He obviously already gets all the business he wants, so there is no need to change. If he irks a would-be customer here and there, it has not hurt his bottom line enough to warrant making major changes in his website, order system or attitude. At this point modernizing just looks like headaches.

    Perk of owning the business! Things would be different if he had a board of directors to answer to. (All they would know is "More! MORE!")

    Personally, I've ordered thousands of dollars in parts from Steve over the years. Look at my collection and you can see why. All I do when my order arrives is pull up my bank website and enter the Invoice number and total price and the bank automatically cuts a check to PBR without the 3-5% that credit cards and Paypal cost. In the end, this system works just as easy as an online shopping cart for me. When you include the automatic 10% discount for orders over $100 along with the lack of built in credit card costs, I have probably saved enough over the years to pay for the Sky Jump that I just bought.

    When the power went out in Town a line of customers waited outside a little country store to get food, propane and supplies. Why? He had a mechanical cash register.
    There is a NAPA store here that does not use computers, still by catalog and cash. Everyone goes here instead of the Advance Auto. Why? Price and he always has what you need.

    Just two examples where old school is still king.
    I will always buy from PBR if they have it.

    I like PBR.
    I find Steve funny.
    The parts are good quality. I like that he trusts me, a stranger , to pay him.
    Quick and accurate service. Cheaper than others. A real person to deal with.
    His advice is priceless.
    One of these pbr threads pops up every 6 months.
    With all the underhanded sellers ( mostly small) it is nice to deal with a really great guy.

    I know a few restaurants that only take cash or a check, no cards. They are able to do it because they are excellent. Kinda like PBR. Old school owners who don’t want to pay the fees to credit card companies or PayPal. They don’t care, and doing fine without.

    Oh jeez, I just remembered it's been so long since I ordered from PBR that I don't recall my customer number!

    And I need some relays! Augh!

    I might have to fire up old computers to look through old emails!

    Maybe I'll play dumb and act like a new customer. My address has changed anyway...

    Quoted from ryan1234:

    Sounds like you are doing Steve a favor by not dealing with him.

    Exactly. Steve uses his filter so he knows who to deal with or not. Many documented cases.

    Remember when he told gameseum Steve to take a hike after he changed his order address 4 times?

    He was way ahead of the curve there!

    Dumb. Checks bounce, and are easily forged. Stolen credit cards rarely get used at restaurants, thieves want cash or pawnable merch, quick before the card gets cancelled.

    If the card user also wants all the pies in the pie case to go, then I'd be suspicious.
