these prices are ridiculous, i cant even buy one on wholesale and use it myself, i might get divorced if the wife finds out.

 

I am however working on getting the headsets from MSA and building ones similar to that of rob's. will send you the cost.

I also got hold of the brentwood 9led and halogen head lamp also comes with a recharger. Gonna try it out tonight, if stands the test of TIME, then i am going to get some for our club guys in the future. Cost around R200.

Khan, what i'm looking for is the 9led & halogen, no battery and that i can plug it into a lighter socket. All these things come with chargeable batteries now, and those just suddenly die on u. I want to use it on the boat.

Yes, a big one.

And get the suppliers to carry the can for setting up the service, in exchange for a bit of additional exposure, etc.

And the membership tally is a huge bargaining tool, particularly if the average Sealiner profile is concerned. 'Should be a retailer and supplier dream.

Hey guys - how are your heads working?
Explain something to me.
The S.A. Recreational angling fraternaty is ruled by the importers and wholesalers. Any retailer not conforming to their prescriptions will not make it, unless you put R 5 mil into it and try and bypass the system.
Sales are driven by volume - that is volume of shops buying from the suppliers, not the public buying from the shops. The target market is - The Shopkeeper.
Here on Sealine we have several shops running, guys trying their nut to either make a living, or to get rich from this business.
Khan, Cheapest fishing, Hightide, Jigastar and now even my own Bluecity are right here, doing exactly what this thread is trying to initiate.(Sorry if I missed anyone).
Now somebody doesn't like what these guys are doing, what then, open a new shop, cut prices sell it cheaper. Get another bulk order into the wholesalers and see another retail shop close down.

Local manufacturers: are mostly not geared to deal with small retailers. If I need 100 lures, 10 types, 5 sizes, two of each, who is going to supply that (R35 each, = R3500). Manufacturers make 100 of each, size, type and colour at a time, meaning he has to run 50 batches to cater for my requirements, it's not on.

Who will run this online shop and at what price?
Will somebody do it for free? tell that to the kids.
Will a hosting company supply you the webspace for mahala? they don't run charities.
Will you get a database administrator to manage an online database at less than R300k per year, not likely.
So where does it leave you?

I'll tell you:
Cost + 10%, otherwise put your money in the bank.
+15% for packaging and shipping, getting the customer to pay for it - you ain't so cheap anymore.
+7.5%, for your on-line infrastructure.
+15% for the expertise to develop and maintain the database requirements.
+10% for your administrative workload, bookkeeping etc.
Oh, and say R10k for yourself to feel you at least appreciated.
So that's a markup of 57.5% so far.
Have you thought of depreciation, salaries and wages, replacement cost of product due to increases in cost prices.
Space to put the boxes down in.
That makes it 75% to 90% markup.

Charity starts at home.
Fueling guys to put money into ventures without taking a serious look at what you are prepare to spend, is dangerous.

There is a huge market in his bussiness, so big that a 2007 survey valued it higher than rugby and cricket combined.
It does however need to be run like a bussiness. Let someone make a few Rands, he plows it back into stock, advertising, maybe sponsoring something small for a Sealine event, who knows? but it remains structured and organized.

There are many skills right here on Sealine that can be put to great use.
I have a Sealiner making traces for me, another has offered stainless steel and other metalwork on a custom build basis. There are guys importing small batches of speciality stuff, lets get them on-line, but in a bussiness format that can benefit everyone.

The biggest problem in this bussines is SERVICE, and nothing else. I spend more money at SPUR than in the tackle shop, so nobody will tell me expensive or not. I choose where I shop, and that is driven 90% by service - and that is why I opened my own shop, because SEALINERS have been crying for SERVICE, nothing else.

Hi Maestro.
I've taken it a step further and committed the idea to some of the importers / wholesalers.
They have responded with a good deal that I posted as a part of our registration drive:
"
Here's another good reason to register:
Here's your first deal:
10' 2 piece Graphite rod with Penn (11Bearings) spinning reel.
http://bluecity.co.za/oscommerce/product_info.php?cPath=70&products_id=181"

Double Deadly have also contributed to this drive, so check out the Chillers and cooler section.
"
Now it's wait and see if talk turns to action.
(it better, I's my c..k /cammo worm/ on a block)

My Gallery: 
Khan, Cheapest fishing, Hightide, Jigastar and now even Bluecity are right here,
If we add another small shop to the list it might end up to be just anather drop in the ocean.
My feeling is if we support the already suppliers ( members of sealine ) and build them bigger we might end up with real competators.
Fact: it is easier to get in your car ( filled with fuel ) and drive to the tackle shop and buy over priced goods.
Fact: you dont consider the fuel as you have already paid for it.
Fact: We all go to buy a packet of hooks and walk out with a purchase tripple we had in mind.
And so the list goes on.

WHY: Dont we support our members and go through the little effort as to get prices from them and have the articles posted to us.

Count your blessings-- Should I want to buy a packet of swivels of the shelf I have to travel 260 KM to do it a half decent tackle shop. Then I dont even talk about the price.

Simen, i agree with you in some aspects, but when you want a new reel? I have purchased numerous reels from Mr K.
Swivels and sinkers i wont go there, as its readily availiable closer to me, but prices for other kit is sometimes better elsewhere.
I will continue to support members of sealine.
:)

Hey Mr K....wheres the drag washers buddy?

Just thought I'd share with you the nature of this bussines:
I received this mail a few minutes ago, after having recieved a full commitment on Friday and committing myself to you, very excitedly:
With the fear of further suppliers doing the same, I respectfully have to delete any indication as to which company had done this:

"
Hi Andries

===========EDIT============
Firstly, I am sorry, but was under the impression you had a retail outlet as well as a website.
We unfortunately cannot supply you as just a website, as our retailers would get very upset, ======EDIT========

Let me know if you are happy with that and we can get them sent off.

Kind regards
"

YES YES YES.

You can always have alook at open source software like MAMBO, JOOMLA with a integrated shopping cart system like Zencart or virtuemart which has the function for secure payments and various shipping componenets.(online tracking facilities via user backend):-)

You can add a payment gateway like EFT's aswell which works lekker.

Your customer can browse items and add them into a cart. When he is done he can complete the checkout and has the option to pay via, EFT or any other gateway sytem as per your setup.

Remember guys you cannot use paypal as you cannot receive money in SA from paypal. Been there done that!!

You can have a look at different payment gateways(If you need more info I will gladly steer you in the right direction)

I friend of mine runs his own hosting company and charges R400 p/a and includes domain registration, UNLIMITED disk space and 10 email accounts.

My recommendation is to stay away from oscommerce as the templates are too plain, and does not look very professional.

My site has been running for over a year and I have had many sales on the site and positive feedback from clients.

Just a thougt!!!
