I'm not a business owner, so I have no idea what the requirements are, but does anyone know what the business requirements are for ShopRunner? I'd love to see someone like CSI, MM, or BGW sign up for ShopRunner so that I could order less than $100 at a time. What do you guys think?

That just isn't going to happen. ShopRunner retailers are generally billion-dollar companies with large retail presence, or companies with very high-margin items for sale. Basically, people who don't mind losing money on shipping in order to get new/loyal customers that will pay off in other ways. For an OLGS running on slim margins, there would never be a positive ROI, particularly given the disproportionate shipping costs involved.

Like I said, I have no idea what the terms of the deal are to become a ShopRunner store.

Newegg does shoprunner.

Newegg sorta sells boardgames.

I don't know if this works-out, exactly.

...but you can always look?
