Dan's BP gel (on-topic thread!)

BTW - As far as i know what that Manager said to you doesn't seem to add up. In my experience, prolly not as much as the manager, lol... but anyway, the Chain Stores buy it off the upplier who pays the distributors to hold it in their warehouse an then dispatch it when then get orders from the Stores.

Unless the distributors buy it for themselves, in which case they will buy from the suppliers an then sell it onto the Stores. I don't think they're gonna pay them cash tho, they'll more likely knock a few pennies off the price of each unit. An when the stores are buying is bulk of 1000's, as they do... that profit adds up.

I don't think the plan was to try to get it in stores right away. I thought it was just to be here in the beginning. All I know is I'm ready to order a case!

Thanks for the update Dan!

yup...same steps. In fact, those who have tried it have claimed that it could save time because it goes on a little better. It's all up to you.


Life is but a breath. Here is my story...

Update:

The first batch passed spec in the lab, and the first 5000 tubes were filled yesterday. They should be sent to the distributor today or tomorrow. At the same time, I got approved for the shopping cart yesterday. Bank of America is sending over paperwork FedEx for tomorrow or Friday. At that point I have to download software and get the cart running. Then I have to make an order and double check that it is running smoothly. So I'm definitely hoping for next week for a launch.

Just checked the old threads... looks like i started using it around the 5th of January... sooo, judging by how much if left i should be running out kinda soon, cause there is just under 1/4 left, eeek... didn't notice, lol.

So about 3 months per tube, still not bad. biggrin.gif

Some answers:

It's 5.3 times bigger than neutrogena on-the-spot. I'm not sure how big oxy on-the-spot is.

The manufacturer can produce 10,000 tubes per day. Could you imagine!

I'm charging definitely less than ten bucks. I'm trying hard to get it under nine. Shipping in the states is $3.25 for 1 tube, $5 for 2, 6.50 for 3 etc. Our distributor gave us a great deal so I could keep shipping costs low.

Shipping takes about 3-5 days domestic, and I'm not sure about international. From what I know at this point it really depends on the country. For more info on international shipping you can check out shopinprivate.com. They've been doing this much longer and have a good page on international shipping issues.

will shipping to the UK be the same deal as in a little bit more for each tube or with it be just one set price?

I've been following these boards for about 3 weeks now as well as the story with Dan's BP Gel. I think I'll order like 3 or 4 right away, they seem so good. haha

Good luck with the rest, I can hardly wait.

Al,

It's the same deal with International, the price of shipping goes down when you order more because the post office charges less.
