Wholesale price warning
We do small batches of projects, between 20 and 500, so our markup isn't very high. We do our best to offer a 20-30% discount to wholesalers, but sometimes our markup is only 5-10% on small production runs.
- If you have a large order we can produce an extra large batch and get a bigger discount for you
- Seeed sells Bus Pirate cables and cases, and other accessories. We're not involved with these, but we can include them in your wholesale order
