    Since I now fail for weeks to get my bearer structure for Hi Def Acrylate approved (after already having one discussed and verified after beta testing which is now after 6 months rejected since it leads to production failures) I would be interested in other shop owners opinions.

    I have taken a quick look on the miniature page and up to page 50 the items are below $10 in material price (plus handling fee $5).

    So for many designers the handling fee is a significant cost part which distracts possible buyers to buy more then one piece. Which is in this material a pitty since bearer structure are not recommended andd seems to be very problematic to implement.

    From customer point of view the material comes more nearby to used plastic as the other materials.

    Are there any other shop owners which have troubles with this?

    Should I start a poll raising the question how to best deal from shop owners point of view:
    • Leave the $5 per piece as it is
    • Have a reducing fee with number of items ordered
    • Have an overall handling fee for hi def acrylate of different products
