to consign my items or to start my own shop??
« on: June 30, 2006, 08:51:07 AM »
im a 3rd yr student.. im taking business mgt..
im planning to consign para mas madali sana ihandle?? (madali nga ba?)

im studying pa kasi kaya inicip ko na ganun nlng.. and at the same time, i'll go online selling..
the consignor is the "fashion exchange" near vicky belo in greenhills..
(pls rate the place for those who know it)

naisip ko to go online selling while consigning my stuffs kasi pwede nmn daw ako mag pull out
anytym i want, i'll just need a day before to notice them.

but naisip ko rin kung pwede magrerent na lng ako ng place or space here in bulacan..
(im from bulacan) i already have suppliers, the money, but still have to study and research more..

i'll be engaging in kikay stuffs(rtw, axexories, slippers, bags, tees, and more on the girl's stuffs..
gusto ko rin magdag2 ng mga panlalaki pero not yet sure..

so pano??? help naman...

kung ako tatanungin mo, since student ka pa lang... better consign ka lang muna... mahirap magkaroon ng physical store lalo na kung student ka pa lang... you have to take into consideration a lot of things... at sa initial stage, kelangan nakatutok ka kasi kelangan magset ka ng procedures para kahit na iwan mo sya sa whoever na katiwala mo, assured ka na di ka nananakawan or nalulugi.

ako nga, tanda ko na eh nagpapaconsign pa rin ako kasi mahirap magkaroon ng physical store... malaki ang risks kasi you have to pay fixed monthly expenses... di pa kaya ng powers ko ang ganyan...

how much more ikaw na student pa lang? di naman sa tinatawaran ko ang kakayahan mo ha? am just saying na prioritize mo muna ang studies mo since 3rd year ka na naman... ilang panahon na lang graduate ka... mabuti yan na kahit student ka pa lang eh nagbabalak ka ng magnegosyo...

siguraduhin mo lang na di ka rin madedehado pag nagpaconsign ka... baka kasi itakbo ng consignee mo ung stuff mo... kaya kelangan you have contract, etc...

ako kasi, i require 50% deposit for the consigned amount para kahit na di mo ako bayaran at least i got something pa rin di ba? depende sau ang terms of consignment mo. pag-isipan mong mabuti ang mga bagay bagay...

wag ka na gumaya sa akin na free-spirit! whahaha! joke joke joke  ;D

simpleng simple lang naman ung sa akin. i talked to consignee. i have delivery receipt that i let them sign everytime i deliver. tapos i ask for a 50% deposit. tapos weekly or every other week, we meet tapos kunin ko ung unsold. compute kami how much kelangan pa nya bayaran. ganun lang.

ako kasi i work on trust talaga. i show them that i trust them. marami nagtatanong kung di daw ako tinatakbuhan ng mga consignees ko. so far, wala naman ganun.

gawa ka ng thread sa business matching. sabihin mo nagpapaconsign ka. dami kang makuhang leads here. pati na rin sa GirlTalk.

ill be very honest with you, i really do not recommend because you'll be banking on my word then... what if tinakbuhan ka? eh di parang ako pa nagbuyo sa kapahamakan sau?  ;D

finding your own consignees will teach you to be sensitive. mararamdaman mo naman yun. if meron konti doubt sau, i would suggest that you do not transact with that person.

consigning items has its risks. and it may not work for everybody. as for me, it works because as ive said i work on trust. and ive decided that for my items to move, i have to consign.

50% downpayment works very well for me because that amount has covered my cost of goods already. very safe na 'ko dun. as for you, i dunno if that will be ok with you kasi. you develop your own terms of consignment. depende sau kung you'll be firm at 50% or baguhin mo according sa request sa client. ako kasi eto ang terms ko kung ayaw mo, wag mo.  :)

kasi this will be a very looooonnnnnggggg discussion. better that we meet up na lang.

dont worry. harmless naman ako. magpainject ka lang ng anti-rabies before you meet me ha?  ;D
