Default WebkinzInsider needs your honest opinion! (Donations link added to top of forum and adjusted pricing!)

Hey everyone! Well, the server prices are continuing to increase as we grow and grow. Unfortunately, the ads really, really don't cut it. Right now, they don't cover the cost we are paying for our hosting and, we need an upgrade in less than a month which will likely triple our hosting costs to nearly $500/mo.

I've been trying to think of the best way to cover these cost and thought the auction ads might work, but I think that company is deliberately not reporting our results.

One of our members is a retailer in New York that does not have an online sales division and has approached us with a proposal to have us take the orders through WI, while they fulfill them. Basically, you will be buying from them, but the retailer has agreed to pay a percentage of their sales to WI for using the site.

The tentative pricing would be:
  • Webkinz -- $14.99
  • EDITED: Lil Kinz -- $9.99
We're just wondering what kind of response to expect, so 1) we can decide if it is worthwhile and 2) how many the retailer needs to order to try and keep up with potential demand.


In addition, our retailer has told me that shipping for 1-3 Webkinz (within the US) would be $4.70 to $5.00, which would be USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation. Any more than the 3 would be based on weight and the actual cost listed at USPS.COM.

Let us know your opinion and vote on the poll!!!

NOTE: If you would not buy them from us, please make a suggestion on how we can manage the costs that are spiraling out of control. We cannot think of any other options.

evfan_77 is an unknown quantity at this point

Default Re: WebkinzInsider needs your honest opinion!

Just curious- how much would shipping be (unless it is already included in the price)? I think it's a good idea!

I think that is an awesome idea! With the recent shortage and other hardships with findng webkinz under demand, Im sure this endeavor will be prosperous with a high demand. Whatever it takes to keep WI running people will contribute to, because WE ALL love it. I dont know what Id do without it. I would, for sure, buy MANY webkinz and lil kinz from here, regardless of shipping. I think it would even be okay if you raised the prices a dollar each...

For example, if there is a thread on here about pigs, and someone thinks "Hey, that PSI looks cool!" and the pig is FOR SALE on the site, that member will buy it! This will for sure be prosperous because of CONVIENENCE. Good luck with it!

Not sure on the shipping, but it'd most likely be "actual" cost, whatever the shipping calculator would make it. This would be a "true" webstore built in to WI.

This is a legitimate retailer and, as I'm sure you've noticed, are a legitimate and honest site. Shipping would be very fair, I assure you.
