| p.2 #13 · Insane prices for Paul C Buff gear in Europe. Why won't US store ship internationally? |
Just to give everyone an idea, shipping a 20' container from the USA to Europe costs ca. $1,000 to $1,500, all included. Shipping that container from China to Europe costs about 30% more.
Of course, it takes longer than airfreight, but costs are almost neglectable per strobe or umbrella.
Regarding margins for electronics, 50% are utopian. 3-15% are normal for computers, consumer electronics and most photo equipment. 5% is a standard for gadgets like game consoles that help selling games, and for cameras that help selling accessories.
Welcome to Reality.
The amount of wares they import simply don't justify sea container shipment.
Regarding margins... dare to ask Walser what they pay to the mfgs. in China?
