thin margins | 08/22/2014
I'm looking to open a small shop selling a single brand of male clothing. They have given me wholesale prices and also a RRP, as they also sell direct via website - effectively I would need to agree to sell at that price. However the margin would only be 1.75.(this includes VAT within RRP) Now given the demographic, I need to be positioned in a mall, so pricey rents,rates and service charge. I expect a break even point of circa 100 items per week.
does that sound unreasonable to...
Importing Sample from China | 08/22/2014
I am importing a sample of electronic cigarettes from a supplier in China for the first time - they are saying that they will ship the goods to my door using DHL Express - and that I must do the customs clearance and pay duty/import tax. Will DHL do this on my behalf then charge me before the package arrives? Do I need to send the supplier a CN23 customs declaration form or should I get a freight forwarder to handle this? I am so confused right now - I have scoured the internet and...

TESCO | 08/22/2014
seems like they are falling out of favour and more people are using Lidl and Aldi.......
I was always a fan of Tesco but not now.
Just been away to Spain and was buying red wine for £2.00 a bottle where the exact same bottle is on Tesco shelf for £7.00. Used a spanish supermarket where you could buy fresh bread up till 9pm. In Tesco at home at 8pm you'll be lucky to get any fresh bread that isnt rock hard. Lidl uk now has a bread machine ensuring a never ending supply of fresh bread on the...

Plesk permissions problem | 08/22/2014
I have an odd problem with a Magento site I've set up in Plesk 10.3. Basically the web user account (apache) doesn't have write permissions to the media and var folders so I can't save any images. The folders are set to 755, I've tried 777 too. Fasthosts tech support haven't got a clue what's wrong and neither do I. I tried to chown them to the admin account and ended up locking myself out the site and had to recreate it. Apache is running as a fastcgi service. The site works fine apart from I...
