Do we have a firm cutoff date in mind once we hit the minimum required quantity to achieve the discount? Say 2 weeks after we hit the minimums and someone is going to alert this thread when we hit the mark? Or is it sort of open ended and something else will dictate the closure? Before I call in my order to the distributor and have them charge my card for a sizeable order of CDs and woofers, just want to be somewhat in the know on time frames. Thanks!
So there's going to be two charges for shipping in this or the distributor is willing to offset some shipping for a large single order since it is one drop ship for them (likely a pallet via freight if there are a lot of woofers on it)? There will be a freight charge to get the stuff to Erich that will somehow have to be divided up to apply it to everyone appropriately based on how much and how big the items are that folks order....and then we'll have to pay him shipping to get them from Erich's place to us? just wanting to understand all the fees in this...
The buy is set, you call in and tell Jack what you want..he includes it in the shipment to Erich. There is no shipping being charged for the shipment to Erich, but everyone will have to take care of their own shipping from Erich to them.
I was going to try to cut it off quickly, but we have waits on some other things too, so I supposed 2 weeks from today will be a good time. The minimum will be close to met with my order, so as soon as a few others get in, it won't be a problem. I will update the thread daily and give, say a weeks notice before we close it off. Once the order is placed, BMS had the product and it should be to Erich direct form BMS within 3 weeks.
If you choose to pay by credit card or paypal to the distributor, you will need to add 3%. It yields a 27% total discount net. Shipping from Erich will be different for each, so I will leave that detail for him to state.
