Re: Yes, another Hobby King thread.....

Regardless, we would all have to realize that there is no way prices will be the same in Canada, as they are in China. So those whom think it should be, get off it already.
Shipping costs $$$$$..........period. And then there is all the other associated costs like warehousing, staff, etc.
If one was lucky, it would be close to the same pricing once as if you ordered from HK direct and paid shipping. But most likely would be higher than that.
The only real benefit would be the convenience factor, nothing more. The warehouse would never stock everything that everyone wanted, so therefore still would get flamed.

Re: Yes, another Hobby King thread.....

Over the past several months, I have spent considerable time into researching opening up a "local online" store.

I have contacted several overseas companies, and there are at least 3 reasonable streams for importing RC products into Canada.

My biggest issue is competing, price wise, with the overseas stores. When I factor in shipping costs, storage costs, web page maintenance fees, ETC, ETC, ETC, it would be impossible to offer competitive pricing.

I know MOST people would complain about paying locally more for something they would be able to order in from HK themselves.

Most people would not factor in the appropriate costs associated, and feel that local prices should be pretty much in line with the overseas dealers.
