RE:Can Resellers have the White Mugs? Reply

    Hi Anthea,

    (from memory) all the mugs were to be excluded from the Reseller bulk order system.. I didn't get a response when I asked WHY it was ok for all other stores to order a mug/mugs and Not the Reseller.. It's not as if the single quantities are packed differently.

    Maybe the Single quantities can be allowed for Reseller stores, William? At least then we can add Mugs to our auctions/sites?

RE:RE:Can Resellers have the White Mugs? Reply

    Hi Steve,

    I think the main reason why the mugs were dropped (bad choice of words) from the resellers was because of damage during shipping. The low base price plus the 5% discount did not cover the cost of the mugs that were being damaged.

    Hope this helps.

RE: Can Resellers have the White Mugs? Reply

    Hi Fred,

    I recall that reason being used, but it doesn't explain why single quantities should be excluded from the Reseller accounts.. it'll be the same price as SVIP, or could be priced-up to VIP level. At least it would open up this product range to Resellers.

    It's a great (missed) opportunity for Resellers & AN alike, imho..

    Unless, of course, the reason behind it is more to do with any increase in shipping costs for the (already expensive) airfreight if the packing had to improved(?)

    What about if instead of single quantities (or as well as) we were able to get small bulks? (Maybe 4 or 6 in a box - well packed - or something)... I agree that it would be another, possible profitable avenue for AN as well as we resellers... as far as packing goes - I have received the porcelain plates without any problems, so I don't see why mugs should be any different...

RE:RE:Can Resellers have the White Mugs? Reply

    I believe it was the small (and large) bulk orders that were causing the problem, Anthea - far too many breakages, even though the mugs are/were well-packaged.

    My question still remains, though.. If Mugs are ok to send in single quantities to Free/VIP/Premium/SVIP stores, why not allow Resellers the same opportunity?

    William?

    Can Resellers order single mugs, pLeAsE???

    What about a 'trial period', maybe 2/3 months, just to see how things go & assess the risks?

    hi it seems if they can send the plates, then mugs should be no problem if packed corerectly, id for one love to see these for resell, I sold some prior and just marked it up from what i can get them for, but would be better if there was a reselling price on them, then i may be able to sell more for a lower price

    William, could you provide the Reasoning behind the decision, please?

    Re: Why Resellers cannot order 'one' Mug in a Bulk order, or why Mugs are OK to be sent out by Free, Premium, VIP & SVIP stores but not Resellers (in single quantity)?

    TIA

    Hi Steve,

    My guess is, no profit. Mugs do break and selling them at a reseller base price (even with the 5% off), when mugs get damaged, they have to be replaced.

    The base prices for a VIP/Free store are higher and AN may be making a small profit, even with breakage.

    Just a guess.

RE:RE:RE:RE:RE:Can Resellers have the White Mugs? Reply

    That was the only reasoning I could think of, Fred, but the same scale of base prices exists throughout the AN range, and the chances of breakage is the same regardless of which account the mug is ordered from.. The reseller & SVIP bases work out the same, but the Reseller carries the liability (through 5%) and the SVIP is not restricted. As the discounted Reseller base (supposedly) covers loss/damage in transit, this aspect shouldn't enter the arguement(?)

    I'm sure Resellers would be more than happy to confirm in writing their acceptance of the liability if it meant being able to add their deigns/mugs to the product range.. e.g. SVIP base + 5% discount (loss/damage liability stays with Reseller)(?) I'm guessing this liability issue has caused problems in the past, and admin are trying to avoid a repeat (at the expense of Many sales..)

    Bump!

    William, ask Berry to give us the bl**dy mugs and I'll stop pestering you!

    One Mug per address, Reseller takes full responsibility for breakages.
    Problem solved. Now change the rules & add to Reseller list.

    Like getting blood out of a stone, sometimes... ;-)

    Hi all just wanted to add my view to this..think the main reason is breakage..you see the big difference from the plates which are also ceramic is the handles which are the weakest point on a mug and very prone to breaking..

    In my opinion good packaging could completely overcome any breakage problems, after all millions of them are sold on the internet. Could it be that the combination of more expensive packing, plus the overall mailing weight, increases the cost too much. A lot of members would like them, so what is the reason that we can't have them. Why does it have to be classified information?? Why is it a secret? If there's no profit, why not put the price up a bit? See my listing under General Chit Chat.. Why Don't AN Do This, Why don't They Do That!!

    You're missing the point, Ashley.. the mugs are available to All accounts except the Reseller. They're not packed any differently for any level of AN account, and they wouldn't be for the Resellers. If 'breakage' is the reason, then mugs should be stopped all together, for all accounts, as common sense dictates(?)

    After all this time of plugging, no-one (especially admin) has offered a feasible reason why Resellers cannot order just the One mug per customer in a bulk order when it's ok for all other accounts & customers to order any quantity they like...

    AN can easily enforce the 5% rule, or up the price for Resellers.. Instead, admin prefer to ignore repeated requests for aither (i) Resellers to have the chance to order ONE(?) mug per Customer, or (ii) offer an Intelligent reason why it's not feasible.
