Third and final order: Same patch as before, cost is based on total number of group ordered. Once again, there is no profit on this order.

The Unofficial Hammock Camping merit badge has been taught in over 40 troops in many states with great results and feedback. It is an excellent way to introduce hammock camping to scouts every where, and teach a valuable camping skill.

Hi William,
Thanks for doing this; I have been meaning to do this in my Troop for a while now.

I have a question about the spreadsheet. I put in 100 badges, but the cost is coming out as $0.86, which doesn't seem to jive with the quantity prices you have. Actually, looking at the formula, it seems that $1 is the cost for less than 100, 0.86 is the cost for at least 100, and then the other prices track (ie, 0.69 for at least 200).

Does that sound right?

I believe that the prices quoted in this thread are the cost from the supplier, so your order for 100 will end up reducing the price for the entire groups order.

I have to wait until I get home to view the document (blocked at work), so I can't say for certain what it says.

Doogie is correct. The vendor has provided prices per badge ordered decreasing in costs the more items ordered.

Qty ordered cost:
100 @ $ 1.00 each + S&H
200 @ $ 0.69 each + S&H
300 @ $ 0.61 each + S&H
500 @ $ 0.55 each + S&H
999 @ $ 0.45 each + S&H

then the fun starts with shipping, transaction, and reshipping costs.

Final cost will be calculated based on total number ordered + Shipping (Approx $15.00) / # of Buyers + PayPal Fee (2.9% + $.30) + Your Shipping ($5.80 USPS Priority for a small flat rate box)

I can verify the spreadsheet later tonight

If I have any left over I will sell small batches, or you can partner with a couple of other folks.

I would like two badges, if someone has extras from thier order. This spring is when I am starting to get the boys interested in hammocks with our week long coming next month.

Willing to pay for the patches and post - Thanks, and thank you to the OP; great idea.
