no biggie on the logo.. I’ll keep my order Smile

The only way to do a great work is to love what you do.

OK No Problem . Deduct Logo Cost from the Host Price .

It will still be the same price. The Logo was supposed to be free.

The messed up part is that I contacted all kinds of suppliers who would give a free logo for an order of 50 and that was what FT said too. I’m wondering if their supplier was just trying to push them into a larger order or what? Fast tech was the only one willing to ship directly to everyone though. I would have had to take shipment for everyone and then re-ship and half the people are not even in the US. So the price would have been too high. That was why I went with FT in the first place.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

Will you be doing another similar group buy with logo in the near future? If so, I’ll wait for that, at least on the hosts. If not, I’ll keep my order. It’s not a huge deal.

No issues.  Keep on with the great work you have been doing on this.

The beer's on me if I ever get to your neck of the woods.  Thanks for your efforts.

I still want my order, with or without the logos. Thanks for all your hard work on this. My son’s really excited to build his first flashlight with me. He hasn’t been this excited since we built a crystal radio together.

I thought this is the logo groupbuy, but i guess fasttech did it again.
Anyway, i hope that in the future there will be no more dealing with F***tech for groupbuys.

I was going to do another group buy with a logo but not after this. I can’t trust fast tech to get it right and shipping the whole bunch to me and then re-shipping costs to much for most people.

Who knows how I’ll feel after it all gets straightend out but right now I’m ticked off and bumbed out about it.

Thanks again guys, I’ll try and get this all fixed and sorted out. So far I have only issued the one refund and I just took their order off the spreadsheat. So hopefully I won’t have to go and make up a new one completely.

$8.56 -$0=$856. This is still a very good price. The cost to reship is $3-12. + Boxs+Time. This GB still looks good to Me.

Are you loosing money if we paid and added the 3% to the total like I did? If so, how much more do you need? As for the logo, I don’t care. Keep the order as is or cancel it if you prefer.

Yes it was supposed to be 5% I didn’t know they had raised their rates. But that was my fault so I’m not asking anyone to pay for my mistake. If you feel like helping out you can toss in something extra. There were also a few people who didn’t add the 3% but I don’t think that anyone did so on purpose. Also the exchange rate will cost a little extra for some. But again not a big deal. I’ll live and learn.

From the response so far it looks like it’s going to go ahead. Only one person has canceled their order. I issued them a refund straight away and will do so for anyone. But like I said from the numbers so far it doesn’t look like it will be a problem getting enough people to get the good price on the stuff we ordered.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

Also it might be a thought to make the format of the Fasttech spreadsheet available for any future group buys, should someone want to after this.

I’m still in. Thanks for all your work on this. Will send some additional funds later today. Didn’t realize you’d be doing this at a loss.

I wanted the logo, but I will stick with this anyway. I would make a stink about it and see if you can get them to give you a bit of a discount still that you can pocket to compensate for the fees.
