Heraldm, I dont know if you own that company or just represent it, but it would seem that a degree of restraint, understanding, and professionalism would go lightyears for your company image, even if we just seem like a tiny market to you. Please try to understand that everyone is different, and some of us, like me, arent as experienced or as strong as you in business. So, a little patience please?
ZVF89, the reason for posting quantities available can be many, some of which are:
1.) The item is a hot product and moves quickly with limited stock flow. I personally prefer the availability shown.
2.) It also has a side effect of generating impulse and a sense of urgency.
3.) Showing your supply capacity also allows for gathering interest in short term and long term contracts for a constant flow of business. For instance if I see that Bill can supply 1000 of product X a month, it negates any thought in my mind that this could be just a single unit supplier or a small quantity supplier, and maybe before I knew that fact I may have never thought about making a contract with Bill for X amount of product a month, so in a way Bill has given me the idea as well.
Hope this helps!
