HiVis jackets - next steps
Some time ago we introduced an option to buy hivis OSM UK branded jackets. Basically we take orders, pass them on to a supplier and they fullfil the order. They payment to the supplier is made by one of the Directors who then claims the money back from OSM UK.
We agreed to sell these at cost with no profit margin added.
At first we got batches of orders but this has now slowed to the occasional single order. Our supplier has also put their prices up and we now make a small loss (£1.76 plus the paypal fee we incur) for each item sold.
I am starting this thread to get ideas of how to proceed. We could:
Continue as is
Increase our prices to reflect the suppliers new prices
Stop individual sales on the website, instead doing a batch order which we sell at events (e.g. the next meeting).
Just provide the artwork and the instructions to do it yourself.
Buy a load and start giving them out for free / as awards for active mappers (after all the branded hivis jackets are a form of promotion whilst out and about).
Any other ideas...
Let me know your thoughts. We can then set up a vote once I know we are on the right track.
