Now that there are 5000!? participants, once again:
As stated, if Massdrop keeps the residual, the net effect is completely lopsided - not that there's anything wrong with that. Have you done the backpocket math at all? If the cost of categories A/B/C are static at the given % and COGS e.g. $10/20/30 (highly doubt IEMs cost that), with $25 Revenue per item, you go from 200 units Gross Margin of $1,900 to 4000 units of $38,000 to Massdrop.
I was simply hinting/asking if Massdrop would tip the scale to favor higher end goods (increase %) to lessen such highly noticeable margins - but mostly to the benefit of the members. All I see so far is a $100 MSRP headphone that was added, which by all counts, is marginal.
You guys should change the percentage to 20% A, 80% B, given the scale, with 1000 achievement marker prize per each thousand participants.
I'm trying to understand exactly how you figure your math out. With 55% of people getting a 50$ IEMs, 35% people getting a 40$ IEMs, and 10% getting a 50$ IEM , at roughly 28$ a purchase how could you think they are making that much on the Margin? By all accounts this a great deal and you have the possibility to win something worth way more than the 3 IEMs listed.
*all prices from Amazon.
You have a very small chance of willing anything beyond the three normal items. I mean there are only one of each.
It's called scale of business. You should do the math out.
