Thinking about doing a group buy for tumblers

I'm considering doing a deal on 500 tumblers in each size 30oz and 20oz. I wont be at Brand R pricing but I'm thinking $25/20oz and $33/30oz plus shipping. Rough numbers work out to about $1 per cup for shipping in cases.

Let me know your thoughts.

    That's what we do while waiting on other projects to dry, cure, or whatever. We bought 60 a month ago and are now down to 5 left. Lol. But don't get the yeti, RTIC is the same with a different name and for $20 a cup if bought in singles, or I think $12 If you buy 60. But this will boost your profits and save your customers money. Therefore they will return. Mine always do brother, good luck and I hope this helps.

    @adonis1 I think you have to buy 35 to 39 cases to get the price do to $12.50 per cup and there is 30 cups to a case

    RTIC, we have a buddy that works there in  cypress Texas, I'm grabbing them a lot cheaper. Employee discount,,,,,,we just got 20 cases in at 12-13 a cup. And I got the good slide close lids for no extra cost. That's a hook up....
  • Gotcha_coveredGotcha_covered Posts: 471Member, Business Ninja ✭✭✭

    I would save your money. It is expensive and doing business with the Chinese is almost impossible. By the time you get a good supplier, you will want to hire people to do a plant inspection to make sure there is a real factory... Next you would want to hire folks to supervise production so you don't get a container full of plastic cups... Shipping insurance, freight, customs brokers, hours of headaches, most Chinese factorys want you to wire your money to them, it is better to find a US based company that has taken all the BS out for you and you focus on what you do best.

    Sounds like you have gotten burned @libertyh20, always nice when guys who know put the info out there for everyone.
  • mielkewaygraphicsmielkewaygraphics Posts: 176Member, Business Ninja ✭✭✭
    Ok, one question. And if I'm asking for info that you guys arent ready to give out I totally understand. But.... How the heck are you guys selling these? Ebay, Amazon, local???? I can't even fathom selling 60 cups at $30+ dollars a month. Much cudos to you guys. I can't even sell 1 locally. LOL. Any advise is greatly appreciated.

    @mielkewaygraphics, I have a box full of dipped tumblers that I take to archery tournaments, sell a couple, pack them up and haul them back. Seems people aren't buying generic dipped tumblers as much as they used to.
    My real tumbler sales come from custom tumblers sold to companies to give to their employees or customers. When you get an order from them it's usually for 20-100+. You will need to get a .jpg of their logo or get with a printer and have it made but that's no big deal.
    Sports tumblers are another good seller if you have an outlet. Oh, I almost forgot..., I made some Georgia Bulldog tumblers for a contractor supply company sales rep. and he carries it with him. I told him I'd pay him a commission for all he sold and he's consistently bringing in orders.
    Hope this helps.
