4th March 2013: GROUP BUY NOW CLOSED!

 

 

 

Hello all,

 

Following becoming a trader (general GoPro discussion thread here), a few people have mentioned the dreaded 'Group Buy' phrase, so I've decided to give it a go! I haven't co-ordinated one of these before, but given quite a lot of thinking (and some help from Bombero, thanks!) I've come up with the following structure. My apologies if anything doesn't seem quite right - feedback is welcome.

 

Here is the pricing structure. Sorry the White Edition doesn't have a great discount - if it went to 10% I'd be losing money on each and every one, so tight are the margins...

 

Hero3 White       RRP £200.00  

 

Qty      Discount           Price           

2          7%                   £186.00

3-4       8%                   £184.00

5+        9%                   £182.00

 

Deposit amount: £20.00

Hero3 Silver      RRP £280.00  

 

Qty      Discount           Price          

2          7%                   £260.40

3-4       11%                 £249.20

5+        15%                 £238.00   

 

Deposit amount: £25.00

Hero3 Black       RRP £360.00

 

UPDATE 7th Feb - The 5 camera point has now been met on this item, so all Black Edition cameras from now until the closing date of 4th March will be at the 15% discount level :t-up:

         

Qty      Discount           Price

2          7%                   £334.80

3-4       11%                 £320.40

5+        15%                 £306.00  

 

Deposit amount: £30.00

A quick note on the Black - there are a couple of different 'editions' available (motorsports, surf and one with no extra naming). The difference between the 'no extra name' model and the 'motorsports' one is simply the picture on the packaging! GoPro don't include extra mounts in either of them in order to keep RRP down and allow customers to pick and choose their own specific mounts. For some reason, the 'motorsports' ones seem to sell out really quickly at my supplier (I am guessing a few of the big boys have that product code on their system and only order using that rather than using good old fashion methods), so it looks likely you will receive a 'normal' one should you put your name down for a Black Edition.

 

 

As a slight aside, the Hero2s are already on healthy discount on my site for anyone interested (and you can still get a further 7% off that price if you are a WSCC member using the code in the traders area).

 

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

  1. Please add your name to the list below by copying and pasting the list only and adding your name to a new post by 25th February 2013. Once there is sufficient interest - I'm thinking around 10 cameras in total - I will let you know via this page.
  2. After your interest has been lodged, I will create a custom link for you on my website (http://www.tartybikes.co.uk/workshop/tartybikes_charge/c34p10702.html) to allow you to pay your deposit. This should be completed by 4th March 2013 please. NOTE: We have now reached the 5-level on Black cameras, so 15% discount can be applied to any purchases until 4th March. If you would like one, just drop me a line and I'll arrange everything for you.
  3. Upon receipt of each deposit, I will order your camera in, and only once they have arrived to me and are ready for dispatch will each buyer will be sent a link where they can pay the remainder of their balance. I don't want your money if I don't have your camera!
  4. Please complete payment within one week of receiving notification that your camera is in stock. After final payment has cleared, your camera and any accessories will be dispatched to you on a next working day service (UK mainland).

 

GROUP BUY RULES & INFO:

  • Any accessories purchased at the same time as cameras will match the highest discount level reached. Please 'order' your accessories at the same time as your camera by noting in your post what you would like - no extra deposit is required to do this, but please note you must purchase a camera to qualify for the accessory discount.
  • Therefore, if the group buy totals 3 White, 4 Silver and 4 Black cameras, all accessories will have 11% discount applied no matter which camera you wish to buy. If one extra person bags a Silver, the accessories discount will jump to 15%.
  • All prices include VAT.
  • Postage is £6 per camera, for UK mainland next working day tracked service. Multiple camera purchases or adding accessories will not increase the postage cost. International delivery no problem (POA), and VAT can be removed for parcels heading outside the EU.
  • DEPOSIT: Once you have your link to pay your deposit, please add the item to your basket and go through checkout. Select delivery type as '£0.00 - Gift Voucher Code Emailed To You'. Don't add any extra items or it will try and charge you postage! You will receive an email confirmation that your deposit has been paid.
  • FINAL PAYMENT: The cameras will be ordered as soon as deposits have been paid, and allocated in order of who paid their deposit first. As soon as the cameras are in stock, each group buy participant will have a custom item added to the website in order to complete payment, and the link sent to you via email / PM.
  • STOCK: Due to supplier stock fluctuations, there may be a slight delay between payment of deposit and the cameras being delivered to me. I usually prefer not to take any payment until the goods are ready for dispatch, but the risk of ending up with a huge stock of GoPro cameras meant the need for some sort of security / commitment, and this is why we came up with the deposit system.
  • That said, it is anticipated that all cameras will be ready for dispatch no later than 25th March 2013, but most should be available within a couple of days maximum of your deposit being paid. If anything changes you will of course be kept updated and have the option to have your deposit refunded if requested. I doubt any of the cameras will take the full 3 weeks, but I much prefer to 'under-promise and over-deliver'!

 

I'm also happy to open this to family and friends of WSCC Members, so spread the word - the more, the merrier! :t-up:

 

I will check in here regularly and answer any questions that you may have. Alternatively, if you would prefer to talk directly with me, I can be contacted on 01772 32 33 33, option 1, then ask for Adam. I can sort out any payment / deposits / postage etc if my blurb was confusing (apologies!).

 

I think that's all - cheers for reading, any questions please shout up.

 

Cheers :yes:

Adam

3. black st (Black) - Deposit Paid 6/2/13

 

As an extra to the above wall of text (sorry!), if / when the maximum discount level for any model of camera is reached, I've decided to start to 'release' them as it doesn't make any sense waiting until the end date if the maximum discount level has been reached. So, if we can get two more people in for the Black Edition, and deposits paid, final payments can be arranged :t-up:

 

As and when people add themselves to the list, I will update this item on the website allowing you to pay your deposit as and when you wish: http://www.tartybikes.co.uk/workshop/tartybikes_charge/c34p10702.html. David and Robert, you are on there now.

 

Cheers!

Adam

Thanks Dave - link updated: http://www.tartybikes.co.uk/workshop/tartybikes_charge/c34p10702.html (note: the list is ordered alphabetically, there's no secondary meaning to it!)
 
I took the slightly preemptive step of adding final payment items at 15% discount level for the two chaps who have lodged deposits so far. It's set up so you can't make payment just yet, but it does mean that - if you wish - you can click 'Contact me when back in stock' and add a tick next to your item, and the site will then fire you an automated email once final payment can be made.

I've ordered a few extra cameras this morning (on top of our normal stock) to try and ensure they can be dispatched immediately following final payment :t-up:
