• 1 product @ 288 pieces = 288 pieces

3. OPENING ORDER COST & PRICE LIST:
The average cost of an opening order containing 288 units is generally between $1,700USD and $2,200USD. (See Import Costs & Fees below)

4. ADDITIONAL COSTS:
Our prices are all inclusive, with the following exceptions:
• Import Costs & Fees: There are additional Canadian fees, and an import broker is necessary to bring your products into Canada. Here is a link to a step-by-step guide for importing: https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/import/guide-eng.html.  Also, here is a link to a list of Canadian brokers: https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/services/cb-cd/cb-cd-eng.html.
• Shipping Charges: Figure between a $1.00 and $1.50 per unit to Canada
• Brokered Barcodes: Brokered barcodes are available for $15 per product. This is a one-time charge and not a per unit/piece cost. If you order 6 different products/SKU’s, the price for barcodes will be $15 x 6 products/SKU’s = $90. These barcodes are suitable for your POS (Point of Sale) systems, and small to mid-sized retailers.
• GS1 Barcodes: Amazon and other big box retailers (Walmart, Target, Costco, etc.) require GS1 barcodes which contain an embedded company code. These are available exclusively through GS1ca.org.
• Shrink-Wrap Seals: We offer shrink seals for $.25 to $.30 per unit/piece. There is a 500 unit/pieces minimum per product (SKU) for shrink seals. FBA (Fulfillment By Amazon) requires all liquids contain a secondary manufacturer’s seal.
