I want to buy a really nice clay set sometime. I'm just waiting for a set to come up that catches my eye.
Definitely clay. There's also a small profit margin if you want to keep your retail prices comparable to others. Manufacturing in bulk helps lower your per chip cost but it's a gamble because your chips might not sell. I don't know much about customs duties or taxes when shipping to Canada but others on other sites have complained that it raises your costs quite a bit.
Thanks for the information. I don't need a big profit margin for poker chips, because it's not the only thing I plan on selling in my online poker store, but obviously a bigger profit margin would be better. I just don't want to lose money by selling poker chips.
Will you be offering discounts to PCF members?
What are you planning on selling in your store?
