networking into reality

I've got prices!! I finally got to talk to my MPLAT salesman and I got pricing on my first 10 Flash Phones and the following 100.

First 10 US$22.00 each = $220.00 + $70 shipping = US$290
Following 100 US$19.10 each = $1910 + $150 shipping = US$2060

The $290 will be easy. It'll cost me about 1/2 a weeks pay. The $2060's a little steep for my pocket book, but once I get the first 10 sold and delivered I should have more than enough confidence in my market to make that kind of investment.

I'll be working on pricing of various products over the next few days. I'll be posting them when I'm done. I've already got most of the pricing for the Flash Phone figured out.

Here's the transcript of my chat with the MPLAT salesman:

[10:48:17 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: hello Mr. Liu

[10:57:27 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: do i order 10 at full price?

[10:57:44 AM] mplatsales says: Of course , still have best discount.

[10:57:57 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: how much will the first 10 cost?

[10:57:58 AM] mplatsales says: NOT FULL price

[10:58:12 AM] mplatsales says: USD22.00

[10:58:38 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: so can i get that price through MPLAT.com or do i order through you?

[10:58:52 AM] mplatsales says: From MPLAT.COM

[10:59:06 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: how do i get that price from the website?

[10:59:18 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: does it give it to me automatically when i order 10?

[10:59:23 AM] mplatsales says: No.

[10:59:45 AM] mplatsales says: I will do proforma invoice for you.

[10:59:53 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: okay

[11:01:10 AM] mplatsales says: One week.

[11:01:19 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: okay

[11:01:30 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: i'll place the order for 10 when i get the first one

[11:01:39 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: so i can just get on skype and just order with you?

[11:02:09 AM] mplatsales says: No. you may send the email to sales@mplat.com , one salesman will contact you.

[11:02:26 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: and i can still get the $22 price?

[11:02:39 AM] mplatsales says: Yes. We have price list.

[11:02:55 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: so when i order 100 how much is each one?

[11:03:08 AM] mplatsales says: USD19.10

[11:03:45 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: that's a good prifce

[11:03:46 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: price

[11:03:57 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: so why do you sell them for $55 individually?

[11:04:22 AM] mplatsales says: The price is FOB china price, you need pay the delivery fee.

[11:04:37 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: how much is shipping?

[11:04:49 AM] mplatsales says: So, the 100unit delivery fee will be USD150.00

[11:05:14 AM] mplatsales says: No other handle fee, or extra fee for this .

[11:05:46 AM] mplatsales says: So you may get the profit from the shipping cost for end user when you sell it at USA

[11:06:03 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: so the total cost for 100 is 1910 + 150 = 2250?

[11:06:19 AM] Aaron deOliveira says: you can ship directly to my customers?

[11:06:57 AM] mplatsales says: We sell at high price just would like to protect the partner
