    I think the way you described it on your original post was clear enough. Just say the maximum deposit payable will vary per item

    Oh so it means it is like an "installment payment method" imma right? Well thats great, and by having a deposit lets 5 usd, in the end you can save 10 usd :) 

    I am thinking that for example, i deposit 5 usd, and at the end i dont intend to use it for deducting it of the full price of the item but rather put on something like reward points system, like it will turn into balance until it grows and can buy other items, and adding it with a coupons, it turns out like some mini bank system within your store, and we buyers secure it to buya another item from you


    i dont know if thats possible but thats just comes to my mind, cause the mall in our country do that

    You can just check the price tomorrow.
    We may test the “Double Deposit Benefit System” on this one first

    Oh, so it's not actually in stock yet then?

    I just wanted to buy it outright tomorrow if you actually had it on-hand already (so long as the pricing on it was fixed of course). :D

    Sorry, being honest, but a 2$ difference in price for some item less than 100$ wouldn't push me to preorder from show z vs another shop that will have item cheaper with their own discount and the monthly flash sale on ebay, or want to potentially lose 2$ for preorder I suddenly need to cancel, especially when even ebay sellers refund the full preorder amount.

    So I guess the point isn't to get new or more customers to purchase from you, but more to try to lower the cancellations on preorders. Ok...

    We are trying to compete ebay seller for most items, but some of them are fraud so their price is even lower than our cost...
    Anyway I dont know why they can do that cheap since we didnt track if their account got suspended 15 or 30 days later.
    What we can do is try to provide best price in the market and give some profit out to our pre order customers but it wont be a huge discount to be honest since we dont have really good profit rate compare to other stores with a higher price..:(

    At show z, Baba and Netclow on ebay are legit sellers and those are the two most fans will use here as they are trusted and have some customer support (not as good as you of course).

    For MMC products and maybe maketoys as well, your main competition is Planet Steel Express (only when they offer free shipping), and most north American etailers offering free shipping, as sometimes you are over the MSRP (some exceptions exists, and in those cases, you win).

    Usually you are strong with KO pricing and some of the 3rd parties, maybe badcube, don't recall right now.

    But always keep in mind fans will compare you to trusted ebay sellers baba and Netclow, and keep in mind they sometimes also offer discounts on preorders too which won't always show on ebay...

    Yeah, I kinda like paying all that money for my large order back in Januaryish and have stuff arrive when it's available without having to pay anything extra.

    I'd rather just pay once and forget it.

    Made my first order with ShowZ on the BadCube Lambo brothers, one of the best prices I could find.

    I like what showz did for the preorder system, but personally I try to avoid preorder as much as I can now.
    It just so many issues with the 1st batch of toys, for example the DX9 Gabriel... took me hours to fix it.
    Also some figures looks might be really good in all the pictures before release, but actually handling could be nightmare, like the AAT dino, or FT Kup and Arcee, all these lead to me to wait for actual players' reviews after release.

    So I would still buy from Showz if the price is good, but I just don't want to do pre-order now.

    I suggest ShowZ can do something for the loyalty program, not only for the pre-order system, I would be more interested.

    Hi
    Yes you are right.
    In fact MMC provide a lower wholesale price to US seller rather than Chinese seller, so we are not strong at MMC and some other brands.

    I know bababobo personally and we are trying to match their price, we should be able to do that for most items.

    We are doing market survey 2 twice a day to keep our product competitive.

    Really thank you for all the info, I'll check Planet Steel Express and Netclow store today lol.

    :D
