    Not very often....

    Russell,

    Him and I talk weekly and have discussed this... Even though a koi dealer that doesn't order very much sometimes will ask to buy direct, he still prefers to have customers buy from his regular dealers instead of him.

    Dealers are also authorized to offer a small discount and when someone orders direct, the W Lim Corp. should be selling at MSRP or full price to protect the dealers... Otherwise, why would dealers sell the products... In any case, W Lim will sell direct to customers things like parts and lamps just to offer good customer support for his products...

    No need to get into a rant about this...

    Hope this helps..

    Believe what you will, there is no rant from me, I am just speaking from past experience. Maybe William has changed his dealings but he used to sell to everyone. This is one of the reasons we do not support him.

    Many dealers don't like to sell Lim Products b/c his prices are to high to them,
    there's not enough markup for their investment....
    He's the only 1 making any money from them............
    He has a good product/but sells it for twice what its worth.

    I'm not a dealer but I can buy direct from him/ I do get a better price going thru his dealer.

    So, he does still sell to anyone like I thought.
