This post may contradict the previous one, but I think it will be a benefit for everybody interested in the livery decals.
During these last days of reflexion, I have been thinking on the livery decals and the quantities that were sold so far. So I think that it is the correct time to take the decision to order them directly from the printing company (Rob at Wessex Transfers) and make this investment in order to ship them directly from Spain with reduced shipping costs as well as quicker delivery times due geographical location.
Rob does a great job with his printer, and I also wanted to reduce his workload. He will focus entirely on printing instead of carrying customer’s orders as well. So at this point he will have to print and ship the stock directly to me.
This is also another way to ensure everything is correct, as four eyes can see more than two, and those who have ordered from me (Spain) have a reference on delivery times.
It is also good for combined items, for example; if you buy the WiFi radome and a decal sheet, there won’t be two shipments required, although I may just include a small handling fee to cover some of the shipping costs for bringing the decal stock from Australia to Spain.
However, since several decals can be shiped maintaining the same cost, this handling fee will be very small.
The only negative aspect that comes to mind is that the stock may be low as there will be two or four prints from each decal, depending on the stock conditions/selling rate of a determined decal, there will be more or less re stocking of it.
Still, even a decal is out of stock, I would re stock it together with upcoming liveries so that the shipping is profitable.
Lastly, I am studying the option of purchasing a module that permits the customer to receive a notification email once an item is back in stock (and the customer registered for it to be notified).
It is something new for me so I will take a look into this and hopefully make the store more complete.
Thank you all for your patience!
