Congratulations! What was the product that was ordered?
It was some Cosplay and 3D printing stuff!
Why don’t you have a contest to guess the date and time of the 1 millionth sale. Person who comes the closest would receive a gift certificate!
The way sales are going, it would probably happen late in the 4th quarter of 2015.
