Example of orders and commission

As our landed price and your selling price will vary on quantity, we are offering 40% of the difference between our landed price (which will fall depending on numbers ordered) and your agreed selling price. This gives an excellent commission with the opportunity to earn a lucrative income from both new and repeat sales. Payment on receipt of a paid order.

Examples:

Minimum Order 500 units SP £80 our CP £70 = £4 x 500 = £2,000.

Large Order of 10,000 units SP £60 our CP £50 = £4 x 10,000 = £40,000

Note: Our manufacturer, who holds our mould for this box will reduce the price depending on quantity which can be sent to various locations by whole container loads of 500 boxes. Previously we have had a price of £50 a box for a single container falling to £35 a box for 20 containers spread over the next few months.

Lead time is approximately 2 months. Currently payment is due on order, but they may be willing to modify this depending on the order and the status of the buyer.
