    Way to be proactive and check some math

    I had been following the thread and really liked the direction it was going early on.

    You went the extra mile and got this great looking badge;

    I need a little help with the cost equation.

    Lets make a couple of assumptions say I was to order 20 pieces and 200 were total ordered by 10 buyers:

    Would the cost be:
    0.56X20=11.20 total number ordered cost X number I would order
    13.00/10=1.30 Shipping (Approx $13.00) / # of Buyers
    ((11.20+1.30)X(2.9%))X30%)=16.72 PayPal Fee (2.9% + 30%)
    16.72+5.20=21.92 Your Shipping ($5.20 USPS Priority for a small flat rate box))

    If so this looks like a darn bargain compared to regular meritbadges $3 + the $5 book.

    11Steve11,
    First I found an error in the Paypal equation. It is +$.30 not +30%

    Second, I added a calculation example to the Google Doc. I think the below is right. Check it for me please

    We are also at 130 ordered, and 70 short of the 200 needed for the .56 cost.

    Individual Order Calculation
    Cost Per Badge: $0.86
    Badges Ordered: 20
    Sub-Total: $17.20

    Delivery Cost: $13.00
    #Of Buys: 8
    Sub-Total: $1.63

    Badge Sub-Total: $17.20
    Delivery Sub-Total: $1.63
    USPS Shipping: $5.20
    Sub-Total: $24.03
    PayPal Fee 2.9%+$.30 $1.00
    Total: $25.02

    Love the group buy, and I'm in for a small batch (at this point I will have as many patches as members of our Troop)

    The patch artwork is nice, but has there been any thought to colorizing it a bit? Might make it stand out a little better. Of course, that could drive up the price, but I was just curious.

    Thanks,

    -Mike

    Mike,
    I floated the thought of adding some additional color to it, but I had about as many opinions on color as the number of people I asked.
