Default Xin - 3rd Party - In-stock/Pre-order/After-sale - update

Hi all

Thank you for support. Instead of flooding the whole section with my thread, I am going to use this thread only for my upcoming updates.

About In-stock:
I will from time to time import some items myself, and either sell here or on ebay (before I have my own online site yet). Price in ebay will be higher than price listed here as ebay charge % final fees on item sold.

About Pre-order:
Now I am planning to update my preorder items here. Preorder fee will only be $10 for each item, with some limited refund-ability. I will explain more about preorder in the following post.

After-sale:
I can provide after-sale as much as what 3rd party toy makers can offer me, which is usually free replacement parts, free China in-land shipping, but not international shipping. So if you can wait for my next shipping round (parts will be shipped with it), then I can also provide free delivery. However, if you would like to receive your parts ASAP, then the shipping cost will be on you (usually below $15 though).

to be continued.....

Default About Preorder

As for Preorder:

Who will need preorder:
I never preordered anything for my own collection before. However, as a seller, I won't get to secure spots and good price if I don't follow the preorder practice. That saying, even no one preorders from me, I will still preorder myself to secure the stock. However, my stock will be limited by the capital I can commit for the item. Then you may or may not be in the queue to buy it later on. Therefore, if you do care secure certain toys upon their release, you are welcome to preorder from me.

How to preorder:
As I source my stocks from China, I think I just follow the practice there. The preorder fee will be $10 per item, limited refundable.

For an example, if you would like to preorder "FT not-Omege Supreme", please send me email to transformers@diamondvalley.cn with the following info:
"otca member name, First Name, Surname, postal address and mobile number and name of the toy you want to preorder and number."

Once I can confirm the availability/spot, I will confirm with you in reply email then you can pay me the preorder fee.

Once the toy is released, you will be contacted again for paying the rest. I will definitely try only ask settlement payment when I see those stock successfully arriving in Melbourne.

With the $10 preorder fee, what you can get and what you cannot:
If the toy IS released, you will have one. However, at the time you pay your preorder fee, you usually 1) will not be told the final price of the toy (as so many factors uncertain to affect the final AUD price, however, due to my USD free transaction and 4Px shipping, I reasonably believe my final price should be rather competitive); 2) will be told the release date, but do expect it will be delayed by 3rd makers.

About refund:
The preorder fee, once paid, will not be refund before release date and cannot transfer from one toy to another. However, once the release date is reached while the toy is still not available for any reasons (by me or my makers themselves), you can request your refund of your preorder fee. And you will not be obligated to re-purchase even the toy finally arrives.

About the final price:
To be exact, I am only able to know how much exactly I can charge you when the toys are being shipped and already departing the China airport. Any pricing before that point requires some guessing, which either over-charge or under-charge you later on.

to be continued.....

Default About after-sale

As for after-sale:

I can provide after-sale as much as what I can receive from 3rd toy companies. If in future I might even be able to ask them to ship some parts in advance with the toy to Australia so we don't have to wait for replacement shipping.

For now, if you receive a toy with missing hands, wings, wheels etc, please let me know. I will contact the 3rd makers to resend those parts.

The cost of the parts is free, China domestic shipping is free too. The best way to receive the parts is to let it be sent with my next round shipping together to reduce the long distance cost.

That's all I have to say, thank you for reading. I am waiting for FT not Omega Supreme's preorder availability will update soon.

Thx

My stock syncs with Chinese domestic release date, depending on 3rd companies' preference, it may be earlier or later than international release date, such as from BigBadToys, etc. For those marked as "N/A" don't mean it will come out late.

Any questions, please ask.

Without prices, makes it hard to make a decision just fyi. Tbh I'd love to support and buy some things, but without even a price ballpark, I can't drop money onto it

besides putting up prices, will you match prices in the market at the time of invoice/ delivery?

Omega Supreme has come down in price dramatically recently and what if comes down again?

Also thanks for the fantastic service with sending out not Jetfire. Great communication and prompt service.

Yep as others have said I cant even put a deposit on anything without final prices, I understand that as an individual that might be hard but it's just how it is :/
Price matching while good isn't I think necessary, so long as you're trustworthy/have a good reputation and will deliver I'd be fine paying a little more then certain other dealers who shall not be named (within reason of course).
Oh and because of being burnt badly it will probably be a while before I and some others will preorder anything from anyone, but having a preorder fee rather then having to pay it all up front will help build that trust so thumbs up for that

Hi guys,

thank you for advices.

I will post photos with them ASAP.

I will try my best to do the price matching.

As for the final price, I understand this is different from other preorders. Based on the distribution channel I am relying on, I really don't know exactly how my price is going to be. Actually all preorder customers in China do know what they end up paying in the end. The 3rd companies (maybe only half of them) will give out a so-called RRP such as "300+ RMB" or "600+ RMB", but no exact amount. Preorder customers usually get preorder price, lower than later RRP. I can get import price which is lower than preorder price. But in future, if I don't put preorder in, I will have to either preorder enough quantity myself or pay preorder price instead of import price.

I guess maybe I need to work out an estimate formula to at least put an indicated price?

Xin
