well..they are quick:

 

M5 Green LED LIGHTS
Spacing:4"x4"
Number of  lamp:100L

Quantity : 24 Strings
Price : US$10.30/string
Shiped via DHL/FEDEX/UPS total shipping cost : US$90.00
 
so with shipping $14.05 per string...
 
Compared to CDI's Pre-Order sale price of $15.50 per string WITHOUT shipping...

The one thing to look out for when dealing with China... Quality! I have had conversations with some of our lighting vendors, and some lights are great, some are crap. I always order 1 string for testing and playing. If it works good, then I order more.

Thanks Jim. I like the direction this is going. Did they send you a price list or just a quote on that one size? Those 25-light strings would sure solve a lot of things for me.

They are sending actual Samples he Said. They have shipping options besides Oceanliner, (Large Quantity). He did say he could ship DHL, FEDEX, if I have an account with them.(SHipping co's)

From what I understand they Take Telegraph Transfer which I was told to contact my Bank about.

I wouldn't trust cash, check, money order or bank transfer. You need to insure yourself in case you need to get your money back such as Paypal or credit card.

I will be letting him know about the large sales opportunities that he would have with all of us , providing quality is good (I'll shoot a short video)

He is shipping 1 red and 1 green M5 set for me as samples. I think he also can do FOB... maybe even collect on delivery. I'll post more when the lights arrive.

2-4 weeks. OY. :)

I asked them for a price quote on 25 light sets of M5.  Before shipping they range between $2.79 - $3.08 per string in case quantities (24 sets).  I'm still waiting on a quote for shipping but I'm guessing it will be high.

Here is the email I sent him about the Forums:

Hi Jason,

 

You are probably getting a lot of quote requests from the USA right now… I am part of a larger group of people that purchase large quantities (for us the case level is more than most people purchase) of lights to animate them in our Christmas displays.

(link: https://www.vimeo.com/kiplorenzo/albums) Your company does stand a good chance to make a lot of money through the light group that I am part of (forums.lightorama.com).  The group is curious to know if your company has any other method of receiving payment for goods (upfront payment prior to shipment of course.) such as a PayPal Account (www.paypal.com), or Ali-Express.com. Could you also tell me a couple of larger companies that have purchased lights from you?  And 1 more question (lol) does your company make Icicle (picture enclosed) Lights?

 

Thank you for your time and understanding.

 

Kip

Hi Gang,

 

So the Samples of Lights Arrived.I have taken a few photos for Comparison. They Do make Icicle lights, but need detailed Specs. the Comparison is at https://plus.google.com/photos/112214082692307028280/albums/6114046658296902465?banner=pwa

 

The White Cord is the Icicle Lights bought from Christmas Central. The Green Wire is What Jason shipped to me.

 

The fixture is slimmer than the icicle fixture.  I currently have no M5 lights besides an Icicle or a Net to compare it to. They seem to be decent quality, not just welded together. I can't say if they are sealed, but when I tried to pull a bulb off, it didn't come off. The Manufacturer also did not include any extra bulbs but did include a small batch of Vampire plugs...Male, Female and Extension. The Icicle lights do have replaceable bulbs, and was glad for that with the Ice cube sized hail we had last November.

 

Thoughts?  I did talk to him about paypal and DHL. the only challenge he has (which i can understand from a business perspective) is the 3.9% that paypal charges to get the money that is deposited.

We each can choose our points of view on this... Either the glass is half full or is half empty.

I did the math and here is my perspective.

 

I  am getting the lights at roughly 10.00 per 100 String. +.39 Cents for Paypal, and then there would be the DHL Cost also.

I know I paid roughly 20.00 a Set last year from a vendor, and paid shipping also (not that I am complaining about the vendor as they are great.)   So even with shipping the cost is still below the 15.00 range. I think that is a savings.

 

 

just my 2 Cents. :D

I got a quote for 96 strands. 24 of r,w,b,g and the cost was 717.00 for lighys then 320.00 for air freight is the deal breaker that puts it at 1037.00. Can get it holiday lights express free shipping and be the same price

When I put in those amounts at holiday lights express, I get a total of $1233.00...were you getting 100ct M6's?

And that was at the "case price"... and it's only free if your order is over $1000.00.

Yah the order at hle would be about 1050 I believe

I bet if ordered in much larger quantities then the air frieght would be worth it.
