Title: 15%?
Post by: mike on December 10, 2005, 12:36:17 PM
This is for any re-sellers/custom
installers:  Any supplier I use has a 25-
70% discount for resellers/custom
installers.  I can make a profit from
that.  How can you make a living when you
sell $1,000 worth of product for a $150
profit??  Am I missing something concerning
the discount for a re-seller/custom

Check out a company called DBL Distributing,
Scottsdale AZ. They sell X10 products.
CR12A plus a transceiver (both) for 15.99.
You only have to buy one
X10 price 29.99 (if you buy $1000 is 25.49)
DBL savings is more than 55% (X10 is 29.99)
There are 2 wireless cameras battery pack
for wireless cams, motion detector tabletop

Jack,   Thanks for the info.  As an
installer there has to be some margin to
work with.  Thanks again!

15% i'ts not enough, we can't  add a little
more, because in all your products you have
your email address so the customer goes
there and see the real prises

There is not such 15% discount volume,not
commission for afilliates,at all. they are
getting advertised for free with affilates
and contractors, is a total scam.Plus takes
forever to make a return of defective
