FFS why do they have minimum order of 1000 pcs or something daft? I just want 2 small fans you pile of goo.

Why do they do this? Money is money! Just ship the bloody thing! :(

Sometimes resellers have to buy a minimum order x1000. If they don't have that paricular item in stock they have to shell out for 1000 to sell just 2 or so. Crazy I know but their's some financial logic in there somewhere.

Probably they're trying to sell all with a better price. Surely, in most circumstances, you will get a lower price if you buy 1000 pieces than 2.

But on the other hand, what you will do with the rest 998? :p

Yeah industrial quantities, you could always try and sell the other 998 on suckerbay. Last time I tried something like that though I got stuck with the things.
