    Are they selling well.
    If so are you happy with the selling margins

    As with regards getting better rates, don`t be afraid to ask for higher volume prices

    Hi Beacon Hill! Thanks for your reply. They are selling well but with VAT and Import duty I am trying to increase profitability where I can. I don't want to screw my supplier, but also need to feel confident that I am getting a fair price. My spend with them will be in excess of £30k pa. I'm not sure how that stacks up in the grand scheme of things but I'd expect a fairly decent price for that spend.

    Thanks

    if they are selling well, i would suggest-

    a) buy as much as you can based on your monthly forecast or quater forecast to save the freight handling fee, etc;
    b) make a good-looking package to increase the add value of your product, but not to much
    c) similar to option a), but you can place a yearly order to your supplier and ask a better product price, but ask them to help to do partial shipment within half years ( after goods are ready).

    looking for others opinion........ :)
