Yes, the reason is because that is the deal you mis-negotiated. When I contacted Xin, I quoted the $283.30 price Doc posted on his thread, which was re-posted on page 2 of THIS thread, and that is what I got. I would guess that you asked "how much for a 7s3p" -- which is a guaranteed way to pay a Chinese vendor MORE, because you just told them you don't know what the going price is.
You could have used the pricing data I shared when you negotiate the price of your NEXT purchase. But gee thanks for raising a stink about the deal you already mis-negotiated, because Xin came back to me with a "shipping increase" of $100, which I will now have to pay on each of my 4-5 subsequent orders. I'll get penalized $600 for sharing pricing data with folks who abuse it.
So Thanks for throwing me under the bus before my deal even shipped, and be assured I will NOT be making the mistake of sharing pricing info again.
it's so funny, bunch of idiots are scamming people with different prices and then...
No, what is funny here is idiots who expect vendors in China to behave like vendors in the USA.
When you deal with a Chinese vendor, there is NO FIXED PRICE LIKE THE USA, IT IS A NEGOTIATION. That is how business is done in China, and I am sure they think it is hilarious we expect a fixed price. Further, if we were Chinese in China, we would probably pay USD 75 for a 7s3p, but we start with the Rich American price. The best negotating technique is to KNOW what the market value is, tell them what you want and how much you want to pay, and NOT extort them for warrantees and promises that nobody will be around to service anyhow.
so who the hell am I emailing with? Cherry? Andy? or Ziying?
Who knows, who cares, what does it matter? This is SOP for dealing with Chinese Vendors, it is all smoke and mirrors, the standard picture of a vendor's "Factory" is always some other building, and I suspect that the standard picture of a cute female is typically a front that a male salesman uses to disarm the customer.
I would NEVER purchase from them as they are very unorganized and look like scammers with their prices.
Interesting words from the guy who is still selling a123 prisimatics for $55. I thought $55 was crazy when everyone was buying them for $35, then $25, and now >$18. http://www.jccayer.com/category.php?catbrand=A123&promo=on&
BigMoose, thanks for the details on the BMS, that is immensely helpful.
