I understand that pricing can be dependent however, no one here is a newcomer to shipping costs that can fluctuate regularly, but there has to be baseline that says this product costs so much at $x price shipping calculated at order yada yada

Or even give standard options like the port to add to controllers etc. I mean correct me if I am wrong but there should be a base price... that does not depend on shipping or anything...

THAT being said that thing.. above... cmon not needed, and do you have a direct link to that pendant or did I just miss it? Your stuff looks great and the data you provide is what serious aquarists are looking for, but we also like to have a general idea on pricing... though usually when someone says "contact for quote" two things, there is no base product and or the price is fairly out of the norm.
I totally agree...

Like this some how makes them any different than, oh I dont know, 99.9% of every other company that sells products on the internet??? I mean saying that price differs based on country and shipping duh. lol To me, thats no reason to not be able to post a price. Again, you're sponsoring a forum here that is predominately a US market. Give a US pricing point.

I dont know why im so annoyed by this? haha Probably for the same reason most of the rest of us are. I assume you're following the sales model you've put forth, and sticking to it.

Again, they seem great to deal with. I can see that already. But, holy crap...give a price! Like Nwa-planted said...atleast a base price, with an asterisk that says price may very depending on location and options...
