OMG..Just watching silver show stoppers ,so far everything is on advanced orders. Ali (who is looking amazing ) keeps saying how qvc havent ordered any until you place your order...they must be feeling the pinch!!
Commissioned in fact ..I don`t think thats the case is it..I thought if you commissioned something it was made exactly how you wanted it, I maybe wrong ...but its all very peculiar isn`t it? Has this ever happened before ?
I don't remember when it was but the show was called Hong Kong Fair or something similar and every item was advanced orders as the pieces were supposed to be things the buyers recently saw at the HK jewellery fair. Pieces were higher end though.
Its like I mentioned on previous threads, - whereas once it was mainly beauty products on AO, now its practically everything from Charley Bears to kitchen products. They obviously dont want to have excess stock sitting on the warehouse shelves Its far easier and cheaper to see what order numbers come in, and then place their own orders. Not much use to the customer though to have to wait weeks on end for products.
That is the way Brandalley the discount site works. They have sales each day but no actual stock when they get the orders from customers then they go and order from suppliers. You can wait up to 28 days for products usually its around the 14 day point though.
