It depends on what sort of pdts u r talking about. Normally it's 30%. But for electronic/IT items, maybe 10% or less.

Hi Capiee30,

Sent you a pm, the % varies, quite a bit, depends on many factors. Please pm me with your details, I hate to see people lose out, when they make such an effort.

It looks like you need some sound advice, Rome wasn't built in a day! and you may well have chosen the wrong product, or area for your sales attempt.
