    My new product

    I have started manufacturing and marketing a new concept in adjustable length fold down washlines.
    Perfect for courtyards, car ports, garages and even inside passages if theft is a problem.

    There is scope for members of TFSA to perhaps do their own selling of this product for a few bucks, (an introductory offer to members) if you retail 10 units @R480.oo ea you can walk away with R1000,oo?

    So if you have a business selling this type of thing, or you stay in a complex and can get 10 members interested, pm me with an outside email address or fax no and I will send you a price list and some pictures?

    Just a thought: If this is a stand-alone item (i.e. not mounted on a wall), you should try sell it to outdoor & camping retailers. Hey, what about Makro... they have a large camping department. Rather try selling 1000 units in one order, instead of 1000 orders of 1 unit each.

    Retailers are bad payers!

    Yes nice big orders but when it is time to pay you wait for your bucks.

    That is actually true, Justloadit. The big guns generally expect at least 5% discount for 30 days, or even better, 60 days nett. Ouch!

    They look pretty 'pucker', try listing a few on eBay?

    Had a look. Wow! Really clever product, wynn!

    You know what, just be ridiculous and contact Jurgens / CI Sprite. You never know, it might be something they would consider mounting on the side of a caravan as a fixture.
