Alright, shipping has been lowered.
I have officially lowered my shipping charges, I can't do it a lot or I will be losing even more money. However it is now $5 cheaper.
So now my flat rate shipping is $14.95 not $19.95 Slashed 25%
What do you think?
@bkindustries: You've got a business and you're trying to make a living. I don't begrudge you that.
But items on your site only reach a competitive price on orders of several products. There's a limit to the number of people who are going to buy your stuff in bulk.
Let's consider the lockpick set you listed (deals.woot.com/deals/details/5e61a532-25cc-44d4-80a3-057024817cca/). If I order 2doz it's a steal.... But WTF would I need 2doz lockpick sets for? I still can't figure out why someone who is neither a locksmith nor a criminal would want 1 set. Quoting you: "Pick locks are not illegal to own in any of the 50 states, however they are illegal in nearly every one to carry on your person or in your car unless your a certified locksmith."
So your target audience consists of: 1) Locksmiths 2) Criminals 3) Folks who want to practice picking locks at home w/o any practical use whatsoever - not even taking them to a friend's house to show off.
You can't expect that to be a popular deal.read more collapse
@bkindustries: No one has a problem with you at all, but you do realize you are posting things people probably do not want as you are not getting votes on your deals.
Also people are less inclined to vote up things that start at zero votes, I think, or they are more likely to scrutinize your deals because they know a dealer is posting them.
One more thing, if you actually stocked your products, instead of drop shipping everything, you won't have to charge $20 for shipping. I've had things drop shipped to my door only because the dealer I was buying from didn't have it in stock and it was a large, expensive, bulky item (it was a LOC HyperLoc 1600 HPR rocket kit) and they ate the extra cost for drop shipping.read more collapse
[For those new to this equation, please note that there is already history here, and that you probably need to read other questions and the comments in deals, before thinking that I'd normally respond to anyone else in this way.]
We don't care. In addition, the people most likely to hang out here are the ones least likely to ever buy anything from you. I check each and every thing you post, and as long as you're being honest, I then ignore it. Note that your deals don't get voted up. Note that your questions don't get voted up. This is not an accident.
I'm not sure why you're trying to win us over, since (with few exceptions) the people that pay attention to the questions that show up on the fresh tab, are the very same people that are not particularly fond of you. Seriously.
Oh, and strange as this is going to seem to you, this isn't personal.read more collapse
