    Default Queen catcher clips

    I have the opportunity to purchase 1000 queen catcher clips. I can offer these to others for a min order of 10 at the cost of about $1.60 each that includes all postage etc. Price at this time is estimate and subject to change if the cost to me changes.

    Here is a picture of the type of queen catcher.

    I don't need 1000 clips so am looking for others that are interested in them. If I get enough interest I will order them and let anyone that shows interest in this thread know when I have them.

    List do far

    Shipping will be Priority flat rate small box for $5.40 I am rolling the cost of pay pal fees into it all and it works out to $16.12 total for 10 clips. $6.12 of that is postage and pay pal fees per order. Orders for more than 10 I will have to figure out. The pay pal fee does not work out the same per clip and the postage will go up.

    I am guessing at how many clip will fit in a flat rate box as well. So I hope I can get 10 of them in that box.

    Buy a queen muff and use your finders I injured more than anything. Have to be precise and get them in before the close. Use your fingers a lot faster.

    Good excuse to make an update. Shipping date is now pushed back to the end of the month and still they are saying it may be even later. Delays in shipping are not uncommon but I will say this is the longest delay I have seen from China. I have had much longer ones from India.

    In all this company is failing in almost every regard. There first estimated delivery date was Feb,. 14th. It is now past March 14th and all indications say it may not be until April 14th that I can expect to see them. This is pushing a quarter of a year turn around. not at all what I am looking for in a supplier. I am looking for more like 30 days at most.

    I'm just glad you didn't collect any money up front. Not that I'm worried about you, I just don't want to read posts from 1000 people about how you are ripping us off even though less than 100 are buying

    Oblib, I have managed a buy that included well over $25,000 of other peoples money, had 8 months of delay and not one accusation I was ripping anyone off. Of course I had established my reputation in that group also. I will say it got stressful at times but it all ended well.

    I am a stand up guy but have yet to be able to demonstrate it here. lets hope I never have to to that degree. The story is what it is. I am not writing it just translating it. However this ends is in the hands of the suppliers.

    I am glad i did not take pre payment though. It helps keep the stress on me down. It is one thing to risk my money. It is a whole different thing when it is everyone elses.

    My main concern is how this looks to the group. this is the first time I have tried this here and it is somewhat important to make a good showing. At the same time it is also important to let people get a realistic idea of what this takes.

    I sent them an e-ail saying they need to ship the order or refund my money by the end of the week.

    Why is this in the General Beekeeping Forum and not in the For Sale Forum? Just curious.

    Apparently some folks like these devices. Why would one need more than two?

    Because they are specific to queen breeding? Plus he hasn't actually got them "in hand" to sell (which is I believe one of the requirements of the For Sale Forum). He's still waiting for them to ship.

    Because they break and are not that easy (or cheap) to replace? (Look how long it is taking to get this batch!)

    I misplace them all the time. They usually show up at a time I don't need them. I have 2 right now, one I can tell you where it is. Also, to share with other beekeepers, like my mentor. I plan to give away around 5 of them.

    You'd be surprised how many queens you can have in one swarm.
