Confirmed phone call with Manufacturer #2 when the owner returns to Australia at the end of the month. Also spoke to Manufacturer #1 about Product #1 – they said that the design cost alone could be $10k because it’s so complex. I told him that I would send him some info about one of my more simpler products instead.
I really didn’t think it was that hard. I must not be communicating it very well. I need to figure out a better way to do this or end up spending unnecessary money and time.
