That sounds like having a business plan based on the free toys that used to fall out of boxes of cornflakes. Do they still do that? Maybe the modern day equivalent is the toys one gets with a McDonald's Happy Meal.I want to make a sell a product based on Raspberry pi zero.
So your saying that buying in bulk for resale is more expensive??
May I ask why is that? Is under produced?
There's virtually no profit on them and you can only buy one at a time.DarkPlatinum wrote: ↑Wed Oct 24, 2018 6:21 pmMay I ask why is that? Is under produced?
The purchase limit is only on the Pi0/Pi0W. There have been short term purchase limits on other Pis--going all the way back to the originial Model B--but only when demand is massively outstripping the supply. IIRC, the Pi3B sold 100K units in the first two days, but the RPF/RPT had planned for that. Besides the extremely narrow profit margins, the Pi0/Pi0W are manufactured by the RPF, so they can only order as many as they can afford to pay the factory for at any given time. (The same is true for other models, but Farnell and RS have vastly deeper pockets, so production can be scaled to the capacity of the manufacturing line....and sometimes even that isn't enough.)DarkPlatinum wrote: ↑Wed Oct 24, 2018 6:47 pmAh. It is probably one of the reasons why Raspberry Pi are so popular- they are cheap. You can buy 3 Raspberry pi 3B+ or 12 Rpi zero W for the price of 1 odroid xu4.
