I'm a poor oke, so not in the market for designer jackets and stuff, but stickers and maybe a T shirt or cap if affordable.

I would definately be intersted in general merchandise from a central point. ( I am still waiting for 2 reflective stickers from Just Bike Tyre, and ordered and paid for them months ago...).
Agree with the decent quality suggestion too.  :thumleft:
If in doubt, flat out.

Just an Idea, some guys might want a "Ride Specific" shirt with their names on, would be cool if you could design and order through WD shop, obviously it will have WD Branding which i think the guys would wear with pride. But like "2012 Border Run" with the participants names and the "PAW"

THis is not a problem, when you sublimate a shirt you can personalise it..

Awesome Idea. You could let manufacturers advertise on it & take a com on sales. That way u don't sit with stock issues. As long as the WD branding complies with your CI. So you sit with a virtual shop & little overheads. Your web site must rock however.

Most probably not the biggest market, but prices, payment and postal options for international customers please?

Prices - no tax
payment - paypal or CC
postal - not sure here, but SA post office is a rip off!

I'd just like to know why its taken you so long to get to this point? I think you're sitting on a little gold mine here and twiddling your thumbs instead of making money  :peepwall:

And Yes, I would support it.

Go check out www.hilux4x4.co.za and then mail Pieter and ask how he structured his online shop. He's a very resourceful and helpful fella  :thumleft: His shop started out as novelty goods and has expanded exponentially to include vehicle parts etc.
Present bikes: BETA 300RR, KTM 690, Yamaha WR250F

I want to see this happen. Taalk is cheap.  Also pricing is very important. NO Rip off prices like R 30.00 or R 40.00 for a paw sticker when it costs R 5.60 to make a whole string of 5, eventually costing R 1.00 something each.  Its issues like these that make us go do our own thing for a fraction of the price.

 
 

Used to run the shop and make the stickers, can tell you proper printed and reflective stickers does not cost what you reflect...

Payment suggestion, direct transfer, credit card and paypal online.

Good luck with this new venture.

+1 :thumright:

.... Reflective stickers are DEFINITELY NOT R1-00 each ....   :peepwall:

and IMHO the forum owner owns the brand and should be allowed to make a profit from his brand... its your choice whether you support the shop or not.

Don't take Vuka riders lightly - ever considered where you would be without a poephol???

Like the ideas - nothing new to add.

Since we throwing some ideas around the following

1. what cut costs is sourcing things directly from suppliers - not through middlemen
2. postage is a major problem in SA - especially for smaller items like an envelope for stickers ---- need to brainstorm with this Post Office is unreliable, PostNet and couriers expensive
3. CC txs cuts from cost - take around 5% for us small okes.  this will be passed on if there is no other option --- ???
4. need to protect the brand  :thumleft:

I've been investigating for a while now, and have built a site recently. Ive tried them all and by far the best backend to use is Magenta. The are many systems on the market but this one it the tits.

I could explain why but I don't need to just go look, I've uploaded the backend to www.truthburn.com. go check it there.

The main reason I use this backend is because of the stock system. I can pull warehouse stock figures from all over the world with this one. Amazing. It can pull stock figures automatically from multiple warehouses and when stock is not available locally it will order from the international warehouse.

Pm if you need any more info.
