Cart Pre-amble(s)

After years of Trial & Error with various Carts ! >
I am convinced their is NOTHING affordable on the market that has been truly thought out from a Suppliers perspective !

The problems for a “small-time Distributor like us are

  • Our Suppliers List Prices are in USD ( International now for Most Countries” for Trading Purposes
    Of course as a Distributor we get a Discount Wholesaler Price
    This depends on the Product Catagory ( & sometimes Qty Dependant )
    WE deal with (currently about 8 Main Supplies and 10-20 others
  • Each can have a product list from (single item per Supplier up to 10’s of 1000s item
  • Currently our Database lists some 30-50,000 potential items ( separate Cat.#s )

some Practical issues

The OEM Prices generally can change annually at their “whim?, or introduce
new products or simple update specs & prices,
  (usually) Annually sometimes at random !typically 5-7% pa with inflation

We don’r attempt to keep accurate pricing BUT within reason attempt to sell
at OUR Shop Cart listed Prices OR Notify you of any drastic change
( outside of a +/-2% margin )

but The real “bastard Problem - no-one can cope with . . .

    • Exchange Rates : In our case USD > AUD can vary +/-5% in weeks Long term 0.46 to 1.15 like a “yo-yo!”

-   Australia in particular has been such a “basket case” politically / economically and otherwise over the years / decades

-   The daily exchange rate can vary drastically from day-to-day ( and we can cope with that sometimes ?)
But in “melt-down” situations it it Not unusual to get a spread of XR +/- 5%
over a few weeks

UPDATED < Condensed SHOPPE-CT (2020+) & > Current Prices

I am sure it is manipulated by Banks ( THEY are TOO BIG to Fail ! )and miscellaneous “money grubbers”” exploiting All of Us !

“Extremes” have been from 0.47 to 1.15 over the 30+ years Chromalytic
has been in business
 . . . that is truly crazy stuff  ! . . . intolerable !

Of course banks get their extorted commission of 4-5% of each Currency Transaction Buy/Sell plus a Bank Charge  ( for Internal of current $25) per transaction

 As a small business acting as enforced Tax Collectors for the Feds we are also obligated to add 10% GST to everything we sell in Australia plus pay GST & “Up-front” on imports

This is supposed to simplify things compared to the historic SalesTax system of years ago

Customers wonder why they can’t buy in AUD the same “$” prices they see
 the Web (in “whatever Currency” > ?

“FOOLS” just don’t realise these (above) costs involved AND the fact that most Prices listed
on the Web can be “fake” or “unrealistic” sometimes “loss leaders”
 ( eg by Amazon, E-Bay etc ) are ALWAYS in USD and rarely is this prominently displayed 
> so BUYERs “BE-A-WARE” AND that Freight (Import) costs are an add-on cost and can be prohibitive by Courier. One takes a big risk using Postal Services
of ANY kind > Anywhere ! sea Freght > notorious for these
> often padded by “Warfies” overheads

Items we Export
No GST Is applicable ( although on Export / Import into Other Countries then their local Tax/Customs Custom Charges also apply


AND over-Simplistic SHOP CARTS

Chromtech have implemented various prototype Carts ( NOF, WIX, EZWID  WordPress) with varying success as prototype / shortcuts or try and simplify
the Ordering Process for YOU >
 our customers !

Mals Cart is simple enough, powerful and probably one of the better ones
- but not without its’ “foibles”

BUT nothing can cope with the overall complexity Wholesale buying . Import Accounts > let alone cumbersome TAXATION requirements

Then WE are faced with the real issue of competitors “pirating” our database Info In many cases we set ourselves up as a potential target small a we might be ... doing this we would tend to be Market Leaders that the likes of Bunnings even might undercut!

Mals Cart Functionality
YES  !  . . . It IS Still Pretty Good ! . . . USE-IT !

based on “BUY Buttons” and single line-by-line links

It IS secure via PayPAL Online for CC payment

Customer Shipments cost can be sort of optimised

Discounts are possible YES auto-applied for CT- and SF- designated items !
see CT-AUD Prices

Sales Tax or Not ( Int’l ) Integrated  customer / Chromtech

but unfortunately NOT yet Linked into our  Accounts

Because of above simplifications adjustments often need to be made
 > ASK for a QUOTE !

On-Line Mals > a prelim PP INVOICE-1

You pay on that to initiate the Ordering process
On you Paying PP we also get a copy which we act on and process your Order

We advise of by a PP INV-2 of any adjustment required ( for whatever reason ! )

IF You Agree to proceed THEN U  Pay via PayPAL

No longer legal in some Countries to make any adjustments AFTER the initiai Mals Cait > PayPAL Invoice is completed !

Payment and THEN Shipment completes the transaction !

The Couriers Cons Note / Tracking No is proof of shipment > All at Customers risk !
Or IF You DONT want to proceed then we refund any Money Paid ( less the
PP Handling Fee 2 to 3% of INV Value ONLY on sufficient justification !

You can also use Mals as a RFQ form manually from within
You can follow thru’ using Mals System but THEN still have that option B4 doing the actual PP authorisation & Payment !

ALL cumbersome I know !

But until The WEB & The WORLD come up with a better system
. . . its the best We can do !

We’ve compromised but allowing you access to a few 100 of our more
popular items

We are working on a restricted SHOP ( approved customers Only )
 - due to the associated “security” issues

Efforts have been made to make our Sites More mobile friendly PC > Tablet > Mobile phone compatible with some degree of interchangeable Info id one format or another

 . . . for most !

maybe . . . The KISS Principle should apply !
 I used to think that scientist wanted to get involved in THE detail
