Surcharge for small quantities
The shortage surcharge - what is it?
For orders up to a value of € 39, we charge a minimum quantity surcharge of € 3.90 flat. Thanks to the small quantity surcharge, our customers thus benefit from lower prices for small products.
How does this work and why and when do I benefit as a customer?
Several pieces of specially priced items are usually purchased at once or they are ordered together with a more expensive product (e.g. several cables together, a printer with accessories, a thermal paste with a processor). There are fewer internal costs for the execution of such orders, since the proportional processing effort decreases with the increasing number of products in the same order compared to ordering the products individually.
Therefore, we have decided to reduce the price of the products in question. At the same time, however, a minimum quantity surcharge had to be introduced for these products for orders up to €39. This is because the processing costs for these low-priced products are disproportionately high when they are ordered individually.
So it is worth buying these products several times or together with other products.
