Pricing

Prices are approximate, they will be adjusted if/when the project to provide this kits for sale is finally confirmed. All prices include taxes. Shipping and import fees not included.

Prices are set like this: I'm adding a 10% commission to the price of the parts as they're available to me via Amazon, eBay and similar sellers. I'm not considering buying huge quantities to get discounts as this will imply a much wider scope and time consuming task than I'm able to deliver. The main cost of the labour comes from wiring the ribbon cable, which is quite a laborious and delicate task. Kit #1 has an added labour cost of 35€, Kit #2 of 45€, Kit #3 of 55€, Kit #4 of 10€ and Kit #5 of 65€. All kits have an added cost of 5€ for packaging. Finally, labour prices and part commissions have an added 21% VAT.

Shipping

Shipping to all european countries and most other countries including USA and Canada will be provided. The shipment pricing is not known yet, it will be a tracked shipment service and won't include any needed import fees if those apply for your contry when receiving shipments from Spain.
