So, when approximately would someone be able to become the EB dealer in Canada?

If Skladin can do it, it would be great for us the Vancouver people. Thanks, Skladin, but please don't jack up the prices!!!

They probably should leave it as free shipping. Ordering 1000$ of parts is alot to ship. lol

I think it would be cool if retailers from each province would step up and deal with EBB, this way the shipping to the final user would be minimal, who's gonna be our Ontario EBB rep?

shipping a item from china is actually cheaper than shipping something within ontario.

OK GOT AN ANSWER BACK!

Wholesale prices are pretty much BS! Knock off approx 25% from the price the store lists it at and there is your wholesale price!

So what I wrote before about a $50 scope being sold wholesale for $35 is still the same! I've got the whole wholesale price list if anyone wants a copy! It's in a microsoft Excel file!

So buying something at $35 and trying to sell it for $50 in country with shipping included is pretty much a bust. I know personally I cant do business at those prices....

Numbers (rough estimates):

$1000 minimum order at 25% discount. Now selling things at the same prices means that your profit margin is only $250 for every $1000! Since this all has to be imported as retail stock for a company duty, taxes, etc must be paid upon it. That drops your profit margin even lower! Lets say that duty and taxes were 14%, on $1000 that would mean $140. So now your profit is only $110 for every $1000.

Now this is really rough figures as some items are 40% discount on wholesale such as some gear items, but most of the accessories are 25% or less.

shipping would cost $11, so your basically making only $4 out of each scope, and thats not even counting the duty(Then maybe not even $1!). That example Paul said on the letter is pretty much a BS.

I knew it wouldn't work, as he sells to retailers already, and if retailers were able to offer his stuff at competitive prices, they wouldn't be complaining to Paul not to sell to the end user.

Hello,

I had contacted you a month earlier about wholesale. I had just received an email stating that Ebaybanned won't be selling retail anymore and is strictly going wholesale. Will your wholesale prices be changing now and if so do you have a new list available?
Quote:

Maybe there is something change but most are same.
Sorry,we still not finish wholesale update yet.after that ,you can process order directly by our site.

Anyway,25% discount approx.
