Thanks, I'm in Sydney
Put me down for 2 x transmitters + 3 x receivers [Melbourne]
Guys, i haven't done an update for a little while because the bulk purchasing is proving to be... difficult.
I have been in contact with 3 local suppliers (including OCAU members and former sponsors) and they've all been told that they wouldn't receive a discounted price, or priority shipping...
My (very brief) discussion with the sales people at Gadget Infinity, who are the authorised resellers for Cactus, have basically told me the same also.
I think they're of the opinion that they're selling out at the full price, so why bother giving anyone a discount?
So I'm kinda at a point where a group buy would do little more than attract an additional 10% GST, and probably 5% duty on top of the full sale price.
My leaning then is towards abandoning the Group Buy.
If anyone has any more ideas then I'm all ears. In the mean time I'll leave the list of interested people up in the spreadsheet, so that you might be able to consolidate a shipment with a couple of other people near you (to at least save on shipping).
Note though that shipping on individual units is still only around $10, so some of you might prefer just to go solo rather than waiting for a group to be organised.
Sorry about this guys
hey at least you tried, thanks anyway
anyone know how much the shipping from gadget infinity would be? or am i better off getting it from image melbourne?
Just wondering if you attempted to contact the parent company Harvest One Limited. ?
If locals won't help then you need to escalate.
We've been in touch, they aren't interested.
Well thats a bugger. Thanks for trying, appreciate the effort.
Just wondering, but if you do get them, what would be their approx price down here?
thanks for trying - if this goes bad (Group Buy) I mean, is it possible for you to update the front page with links to local reseller or supplier and we can then purchase on our own?
If it works as good as it should, price difference with PWs are huge!
