Lil Kinz
hmn1107 is an unknown quantity at this point

Thumbs up Re: WebkinzInsider needs your honest opinion! (Donations link added to top of forum and adjusted pricing!)

hey guys- just telling you my opinion...I think it's great that your trying to do this, but one thing. the Webkinz is a little too much money in the cents area...I would make it:

webkinz- $14.20
Lil kinz-11.90

That way, you can even out the prices by making the webkinz less money and lil kinz a little more.

Good luck!!!

I buy lil' kinz for ten. not eight.

Justin first said to us that if we bought from the company they would give Webkinz Insider a portion of the sales, then after I replied the first time, he came back and said that they had to mark up the prices because they had to add the middle man to it. Marking up the prices to add the middle man to it is alot different from the company giving a portion of the profits. He also said that the store had to pay employees, get shelfing and etc. Well so does the other stores, however they are not ripping us off by adding higher prices. Why do I feel like by Justin's responses that the memembers that purchase at those ridiculous prices is being taking advantage of if this vender is allowed to sell on our site?
Like many on this site, I not only support the site, however will not support the sale of Webkinz from a company that will be making HUGE profits. If the company would lower thier prices to the Ganz reccommended prices and give the site like 25%, not only will the company still make a large profit, but the 25% will cover all the cost that we need to keep the site up and running. I'm wondering if we aren't being used for someone to gain high profits off us. I will continue to donate to the site, but I'm not going to make someone rich off of it. I will go to a site that realizes that as it grows that cost are involved first. No need to take advantage of members. This is just my opinion except for the factual information that Ganz sells thier products low enough for retailers to make excellent profit by selling Webkinz for $12.99 and LilKinz for $9.99. Those are high enough prices anyways for a stuffed animal that is so small. However, that is the going retail rate($12.99 & $9.99) most everywhere even some online stores.
I'm also questioning how much of this profit will be given to Webkinz Insider? The reason for asking is that I can sell Webkinz and Lil Kinz all day long for the $12.99 and $9.99 and still give 25% of the profits to Webkinz Insider and still make around a $6.00 profit off each Webkinz.
How much will this company give WI Justin for those sales? I understand the higher shipping and handling because you still have to purchase the boxes/or envelopes to mail them out in, but the price is nuts unless they are give you like 50% profit on each.

Another thing, we have a lot of kids on this site.......They save and save and save some even save an entire year to just buy one Webkinz, they barely can afford the higher prices at the stores, How are they going to be able to afford an additional $3 mark-up? Shessh!

I don't like the idea of just one dealer...just doesn't seem fair to favor one over another if there are several on this site. But I also like the convenience of just buying them at the local shop, if they have the one you want.
I couldn't of said it better Lizzy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a great idea. If they are going to sell Webkinz on here, allow more than one dealer to sell. That way Webkinz Insider would really get a streamline of money coming in to help keep the site open.

Nothing personal to anyone but I don't know if I would buy any..for one thing I only buy one once a year,and I am not to keen on ordering alot of stuff over the internet...But don't get me wrong I think its a great idea and I love the forum and even if I did buy from you guys I don't think my little bit of cash every year would help you that much.
good luck though,I hope it works out for you.

ebkinz: $10.99

Lil'Kinz: $7.99

I just hope all the adults out there get to see the small PayPal donation link at the top of the page!

Even if only 500 of the 10,000 members contributed $12.00 for a year of WI that would be $6000.00 divided by the 12 months is the $500.00 a month needed now So if more than the 500 contribute or some give more than $12.00 it should cover any increases too!

So come on folks $12.00 is only $1.00 a month for a year of WI! :0
