Yeah the Fantasia for 18.
The Fusion that i got (Red Grapefruit and Clove) look pureed. The tobacco is a mash. It is completely DOUSED in glycerin/honey/flavoring as well, and the color throws my appetite off something fierce.
Mine looks nothing like Al Fakher.
Maybe cause it's the newer flavors?

The only brand I would recommend you start carrying John would be fusion. I hate how the only place that I know that carries it is H-S central, and in El Paso which is an hour drive from my location. It would open up options. H-S is pretty pricey too. They have 3 packs of AF for 30 somethin bucks. I went with mahirs AF triple pack deal for 25 lol.

You get free shipping with the discount code then. And they price match.

Hi dakingkevin, at $18 I will be making good margin, however, the company has told us vendors where they want the pricing to be at. I don't think it's a good idea, but I can't undercut every other vendor, especially when there are market rules ion place. I can always make speacials where buy 3 for a disounted rate, or throw in some freebies at that price but that is what I have been told. I belive in fair market competition but the point of this thread was to see if there is demand here, so that I could make my decision. With what most have said I don't think I will do this for now as I'm a daily hookah smoker as most of us here and I have a budget for smoking. Although I haven't tried it yet I don't think I'd be willing to at that price. Maybe I'll sample some and tell you guys this is the latest/greatest but I'm not going to rush that, nor will I lie just to hype a product. Thanks for helping me in the decision, dakingkevin and everyone else here.

Now, onto Fusion. I tried it personally a year ago, I think it was bueberry, I tried to smoke one bowl and was disgusted by the color, the color it left under my fingernails and was probably the only tobacco that i threw away an entire 250g pack after 10 minutes of smoking. Sorry to be so blunt, maybe I'll try it again but for now, I'm AF 80% of the time SB nakhla 15% and 5% open minded.
rant over
John

Haha i was talking about 18 dollar fantasia, then you thought i was talking about Fusion 18 dollars Kevin, and then John is saying he is an honest businessman and will sell the product at what Fantasia wants it to be sold at (18).
Wow...

Default Re: vendor question to the HP community

are you on meds it's ok, just to reiterate, I could sell it for less but then Fantasia would come after me and force me to raise prices (i really don't know how they could enforce that) Other respectable vendors who are HP members sell it for x$, then I come in and sell it for $5 less than they do. Not only will that vendor want to kick my but but so will Fantasia. Also, I don't want to go down that road as a vendor, I am very open to fair competition. I try to have the lowest prices I can afford and throw in specials as much as I can. This is completely fair. the point is I don't think I want to carry their line if their price point is that high. I am not convinced it's worth that price yet.
now, no hookah tonight for you, take your meds, and call me in the morning

OK, rereading dakingkevin referring to fusion, ok, now i am on meds and calling a night. lol

Show them who's boss. When a New-but-HOT-and-POPULAR Vendor say "your tobacco is too expensive, goodbye" then they really should start to re-think their scam-er-....SCHEME. Yeah Scheme.

SCHEMER!

Fantasia's not everybody's cup of tea obviously, but if you were going to carry just one flavor, you could probably sell Pink Lemonade at $18.99, though I don't imagine it'd be flying off the shelves.

MNH sells it for 17.98 and has a pretty good 3 pack deal so im sure you wouldnt have to sell it at full msrp(if 18.99 is the full msrp) i think the pink lemonade is terrible, but i really enjoy blueberry and wild mango. I think it would sell because im a buyer, but i cant speak for everyone of course!

For me personally no, i'm sick and tired of these 20$ shishas that aren't even comparable the 5$ nakhla, i suggest carrying nakhla mizo if your going to carry somthing new

Oh yeh, I forgot all about nahkla mizo for a second. That would be kinda shibby. I want to try the mizo grape. See if it can hold its own to the renown AF Grape. DUN DUN DUN Who will win. Only time will tell!!!

fantasia is an okay brand, but if you wanna carry it, id say go for only the popular flavors like pink lemonade for the moment. The recent price increase is a huge rip off and i dont think many are gonna get it for a bit though

I've tried a few of the Fantasia flavours and i'd say it's a good product if you are a fan of American style shisha. Still, 19 bucks for 200g is crazy and I simply won't buy it at that cost. I'd say that 15 is about the top price i'd pay and even then I wouldn't do so very often as so much excellent stuff is floating around for a lot less.
