or are u saying we get the supplier to ship out separately to everyone... well, shipping to US from china aint cheap, and the suppliers dont go cheap if its available. Plus they charge extra for smaller bite sized orders (they get a good kick out of that one) so basically we get everyone paying about 50 dollars to ship a sled or two to them by UPS or something, and we leave the supplier with the conundrum of where to find a few extra piggy banks *


so honestly.. I dont get it... please explain more?

Firstly, I'm looking for a larger than normal quantities... If I only wanted 0-15 sleds, a GB would definitely be the the way to go, any more and you might as well buy from the suppliers. You've run some GBs in the past; you should know that 20-25% of the cost is shipping(to the buyers) and another 20% is profit(these are all rough estimates).

I'll tell you right now but if I were to purchase 50 sleds through a GB, it would cost approx $600. If I were to buy directly through the source, I could get them for half that price. Yes you read right it would cost less than half of what you pay in GBs...

As per shipping the sleds, some suppliers I've talked to are willing to do free shipping with a minimum order of sleds (40-60 sleds on average)...

In case you didn't read the first post, I'm purchasing these for my own use; not to start a GB/price war. I'm not suggesting that we have "the supplier to ship out separately to everyone" either, I simply started this tread to see if anyone would divulge a source so that I can purchase abnormally large quantities ;D
