wholesale cost of 580EX2?
« on: February 17, 2012, 08:52:35 AM »
Does anyone work for a store, and know what the pricing is to a distributor?   I like to shop at a store called ABT and they allow haggling.  So I want to know how much reasonable room I have to work with before going in and wasting my time.

Markup is on the order of 15%.  Less at discount stores.  There is little room to haggle, unless the store gets a big rebate based on total volume sales, and they need some more sales to meet their target volume.

Sometimes they may throw in a few freebies if you make a big dollar purchase.

FWIW, I can tell you in Hawaii it's in the mid to high $400 range.
