Kitlinx Newsletter - October 4, 2018

 Hobby News! 


SKUs in stock at Kitlinx.com: 15,890 (23.2%)

Available from US & European Suppliers: 68,581

What did we do this week?


Picture update of our warehouse - that's 40-linear-feet of book shelves. Not all books are up yet!


BREAKING NEWS: We received our first European order today. It left the UK on Monday... 4 days!!! that's faster than shipping from the East Coast by UPS or FedEx ground!

We want to "test" this relationship as there are about 29,000 additional products NOT IN OUR DATABASE YET that these suppliers have in stock and that we can bring in FAST. If you have specific inquiries about a line of products, shoot me an email! loic@kitlinx.com


Kitlinx has started the upgrade of its software. Our NEW system will allow "real-time" order status. Emails about the status of an order is the most common inquiry. Please READ THE STATUS of the product you ordered. If it says: "Status: Special Order in Europe, Ships in about 2-3 weeks" that means that the product is NOT in stock, and we source it.

Roll Models gave their customers a 2-3 weeks expectation to fill orders. If you want IMMEDIATE GRATIFICATION, just order the almost 16,000 SKUs we have IN STOCK! We ship within 24 hours when all is in stock! (except when we travel to a show or acquire a company that more than double our inventory - and organize this inventory on our shelves!)

 Training our New Customers

Kitlinx Best-Kept Secrets:

Please be "fair" to the product/Manufacturer, after all the quality of a model is often related to the skill of the builder! As my mother used to say: "if you don't have anything nice to say about it, just don't say anything"... Let's make constructive comments
