Distribution of Olimex products
« on: January 04, 2018, 09:31:05 PM »
I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but let's try.

I have looked into Olimex products list, and compared with availability from local distributors in Poland. And this availability looks very, very limited. If I would like to order something locally - I can find up to 20 positions from your products list. Mostly there are older positions and for example it's not possible to order TERES laptop at all. 
I know that keeping huge stock makes huge cost, but I think it would be worth to make sure your distributors allow ordering (and have in their catalogs) all your products, or at least the ones which are not available localy. Or maybe there should be more local distributors to cover different parts of Olimex offer.

I know there are a lot of people buying electronics here and they would buy your products - if only they're offered it easily. And if retail customers don't see your offer - you can produce the best things in the world which you will never sell. And please don't treat this post as complaining - I think you really have good products, which are worth to be bought.

Hey rodolpho,

Thank you for the feedback. No offense taken at all.

Each distributor decides which of our products to order or keep available. We can't force anybody to stock older boards that are probably not going to sell well (we have some boards still in production that were designed more than 10 years ago, like PIC-P28-20MHz, for instance).

You have the option to purchase directly from us if something is missing at the local distributor. When considering the end price (price + transport) and shipping time, maybe also take a look at our global distributors and our amazon distributor.

The list of our distributors is available here: https://www.olimex.com/Distributors/

Best regards,
