    Drivewear.....How can you get lower cost on it?

    I know a place that sells drivewear for $120 extra (as an ad on), and my cost is [Wholesale pricing removed]!!! How is it possible for them to get it cheap enough, to make a good profit?

    Our Younger reps have always been wonderfully accommodating (and great company lol!) If you tell them you can't sell Drivewear for what you are paying for it, I would expect them to bring that cost down. They want you to be able to get their product out there. Communication is key. I periodically let my reps know if I am having a hard time with my wholesale pricing and if there is a better deal available elsewhere. I want my business to stay with them, but also need to do what is best for my business. Reps can fluctuate pricing. If you want to sell more Drivewear and don't tend to sell a lot of another lens, they may be able to push the savings in a different direction.
    Have I told you today how much I hate poly?

    Drivewear reminds me of the old Splitz lenses but with a longer shelf-life......
