$.55 Kirkle Clears!
« on: Mon, 03 June 2013, 02:08:59 »
Hello dere, today I bring everyone a special message! I have found a supplier of MX clear switches at the low low price of $.55/switch! "$.55/switch" you say, "HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?!?!?!" and this is my answer to you, China. I decided to try and contact a bunch of chinese vendors this weekend to find a source of cheap MX switches and then I found this one:
Code: [Select]
Hello Kirkle
Nice day!
 
Thank you for your inquiry , we have MX1A-C1NW , for 1000pcs,
1> it is China made one , each one cost $0.55/pc,
And then I stopped, China... made... MX switches? Now this is interesting! After a few back and forth emails they explained the MOQ is 1,000 for this switch.

Now here's where the GB part comes into play. I don't have $550 lying around to test some odd Chinese switches.

So here's how its going to work. There's a "Buy It Now" button down there where you can buy a Kirkle Clear switch for $.55. NOW before you click that button and buy 100, realize I have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA what the quality of these switches are, I asked for a sample, but they told me they can't get samples as the MOQ is 1,000. So we're all going to sample! Consider it more of a high-risk high-yield investment :D

Now, I have no problem eating the costs of shipping from China to me, it's just that big upfront $550 that I cannot swing.

Once I recieve them, the way it's going to work is I'm going to use this calculator to calculate how many fees Paypal stole from me with your purchase of Kirkle Clears and include that into your invoice for shipping (which will take place at a later date assuming we actually get decent quality switches).

So I hope you read and understood that all, here it is, le button, change the quantity to whatever you want, just PLEASE, only pay what you can afford and go into this with the expectation that you will never get a clear switch from me.

~NOTE: YOU MIGHT/WILL BE SCIMMA SCAMMED, READ EVERYTHING AND ONLY GIVE WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD TO LOSE!!!~


Q & A:

Q. EHRMAGERD THESE SWITCHES ARE SO CHEEP R DEY LEGIT???
A. I have no idea, neither do you, that's why I'd like to test this out and see if we can perhaps find a new (very cheap) source for MX switchess

Q. I paid a week ago and now I want to back out of everything, huehue
A. Too bad, you can sell your Kirkle's to someone else, but realize that I'm taking a pretty massive loss on these by eating the shipping from china to me, think of what you're doing as more of a donation with benefits.

Q. Why the name Kirkle?
A. Why not?

Q. Will you really scimma scam me? I loved you </3.
A. Once the money is in China, it's up to them to deliver and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it, please realize that we have no idea how well this will turn out, probably just fine, but I want to brace you for the worst OuO. And hey, I think you're pretty cute <3

Q. ... A. more questions, jeeze, just ask them below.

Oh yeah, if I end up canceling everything entirely, I will ofc refund everything, I know I didn't post that explicitly, I figured it was more of a given kinda thing.

Ok, I took down the button for now, I'm going to try and get some more concrete things sorted out, and then re-open this at a later date.
