As an arcade products retailer, our goal is to supply enough parts to arcade and fighting game enthusiasts and hobbyists.
However, we often discover that foreign resellers will purchase significant quantities of a single product or product color, specifically to resell on eBay or on their own website for their domestic customers. Often these are our core products such as joysticks, pushbuttons, control PCBs and converters. For example, one may attempt to buy 50 or 100 pieces of Sanwa's Black OBSF-30 button. This is well outside the scope of what most customers purchase on average.
When resellers attempt to buy in volume, this drains our inventory much faster than it should. Individual customers then cannot find that product when they need it. To address this, we set reasonable limits on those core products based on quantities that hobbyist and enthusiasts may purchase.
We have experienced resellers that attempt to get around this limit by purchasing under multiple accounts or multiple separate orders with the max quantity of a single product. Often those orders are cancelled and the customer is flagged in our system.
Are there any Volume Discounted Products?
We understand that resellers, professional Fightstick designers, and large project builders see us as an accessible source for products that they need. FA is not a wholesale parts distributor, but we do offer volume discounts to some (but not all) products that are branded under Focusattack. You will see those discounts listed under "Buy in bulk and save".
