Re: I do not work for American Botanical Pharmacy
I was only trying to clarify the Wholesale process involved with American Botanical Pharmacy, as I think there has been a general misconception. I think the general statement about getting 40% off if you order $400 of Schulze products is a little misleading. It certainly confused me last year when I started to do this. I thought to myself ... "no problem, I can surely handle $400 worth of their products minus 40% ...just for MYSELF" that's about $240 out of pocket. But ... it doesn't work that way! ABP takes (4)products only and discounts them by approx 37%. Then, your entire order needs to Total a minimum $400 using those prices, no other discounts.
I have Schulze plus other products in stock at all times, no waiting either. I commend Raider for doing all this the same as I do, although she doesn't charge anything at all, but I do think she might wait to get everybody's order in and that could delay the process. More of a hassle too, I think.
I opted not to do it that way and decided to just go ahead and invest and keep some on the shelf at all times, mostly for my own convenience ...it's just easier and more efficient that way.
However, there are some expenses involved which I charge back.
But I only charge $1 per item ordered, which NOT making any money, just covering my teenager costs. At these prices I couldn't possibly offer free shipping.
Bob ... everybody has a right to make a profit. You provide a valuable service, not only in what you offer, but most invaluable in the contribution you make to this board.
My Tophat's off to you.
