So after doing some reading, I have come up with a few questions for you guys before I start handing out cash...

If there is a product that would be cheaper without the discount, accommodation will be made to ensure that you are getting a good deal for your money. Also, you will gain membership into the Silver Membership club. While in the club you will receive the chance to pre-purchase items ahead of the general public.
So with this highlighted statement, I ask what happens to the principle if the company tanks?

Also what is the total amount of principle you guys are intending to raise?

How much have you raised to this point?

The exchange rate was awesome when I sent that payment. $1k US turned out to be Nine eighty something AU.

Assuming the economy swings back to the US` favour, I`d say this could work well.




And if not, fuck.

If the company tanks all merchandise will be liquidated and investors payed back their investment until the money runs out. Total capital that we are looking to gain is $50k so far we have received $1k.

The only bill we are going to have is the insurance (forgot about that above) since t he building owner is an investor in his own right and instead of receiving rent also receives a part of the profits. The only way this business would honestly tank is if we decided we do not want to do it anymore or the building is blown over tomorrow.

We are going to be an online retailers and planning on using every avenue we can, if we generate $200,000 in profit in one year (possible) then that will return your $1000 right there. In our first year or two, Ploss and I are not even planning on taking any of the profit from the company and will be investing 100% our share right back into the company to buy more product.

Hmm very interesting. I might be tempted into looking into investing though it will all come down to wether the missus is willing to let me crack open the savings account.


As an aside what ranges are you going to be lookingat expanding into. When i worked in an indi games store over here in the UK we had issues where the GW profit margins meant that we had to rely on third party sales to stay afloat. In the end the store became a model railway, scalexstrix store with a little warhammer in it before it went down the crapper. The rival store in the next town however suplimented their stock file with void, celtos, microart studio and avatars of war product and are still going strong. Largely because each of these systems was compatible with already existing GW product.

With that in mind i was curious as to what, if any, third party producers you had considered lining up?

Cheers
Marty

Edit: I'm aware of MTg, yugi and Pokemon but can't help but see these as fad games. Beyblade was the same when i worked in the store.

We are planning on carrying:

Magic: the Gathering
Yo-Gi-Oh
Pokemon
Warlord: Saga of the Storm
Dungeons and Dragons
Pathfinder
All the Whitewolf Games
Fantasy Flight games
Warhammer 40k
Warhammer
Warmachine
Hoards
Reaper Miniatures
Mantic's games

We are also going to be expanding into Comic books, used books, and various other products. Also we will be carrying the support products for the various games that we will be carrying. We are not going to rely on 40k to make all of our money, or even 20% of our money. I know all to well what the profit margin is on 40k and it is not all that great.
