It was just pointed out to me that my prices on some travel adapters was slightly higher than PBtech. I was going to adjust them down as I could still make a profit form selling said items all be it smaller. But it was alos pointed out that PBtech offer Free delivery this I cant match

But as consumers its well worth taking advantage of

Take a PTA878 Travel adapter
Cablemax price online $7.73 incl tax + $5.75 freight
Me                              $7.75 inc tax + $4.90 Fright
PBTech                       $6.84 inc tax

I guess PBtech may be parrellel importing I wouldn't know Most buy form Dynamix and the cost of that item is $5.29 inc tax
I would be amazed if PBTech, even though they are doing high volume, would pay less than $2.50 a satchel for delivery .

So my only conclusion is that they are working on the fact that most will buy more than one item.

So take advantage of this as I have bought from PBtech and have had no complaints

From what I know PBtech are buying through Computer Dynamics, I know with the Corporate discount I get at PBtech it makes Dynamix products cheaper than I can get them through my low volume reseller account with CDLNZ.

I imagine CDLNZ make their profit of PBTech in Volume rather than high margins

I would guess that PB is making a loss for those kind of items and just hoping that the customer would add more items in the cart to save them.

Earlier this year I purchased a single patch cable from PBTech with free delivery (3 metres). Arrived in a shoe box type box with the item heavily bubble wrapped. Someone was taking the mickey there.

Personally I would compare your prices to Aliexpress.
