ANN果然没有找到比我的运费更便宜的，但是发来了封邮件，其中说道： I would like you to get with your supervisors as well and discuss the possibility of your company paying half of the shipping costs. If you can do this for me I can transfer the money by Tuesday otherwise I will he to wait until your holiday is over.
Hi Ann, You are our regular customer and we are very impressed by your kindness, we feel delighted when seeing your store is opened, and sincerely want to support you for a long long time. We understand that you may need the goods urgently for your store, after discussing with our leader, we agree to pay half of shipping cost for you first at this time, so that you can arrange the balance and get the goods earlier.
As I mentioned that the shipping cost is charged by the shipping agent and we do not he ANY profit from it, what we can do is taking our own turnover to cover your freight first. then after our spring festival holiday, is it able for you to arrange the other half of shipping cost say by 15th?
然后ANN当然是回复说，不是的我不是要你们先垫着一半运费，我是要你们承担． 我装傻完后就始戏了： Hi Ann, I got your meaning. what I can say now is that I'm sorry I'm not able to take half of shipping cost, to be honest our profit of this order is much lower than your imagine, taking half of the shipping cost is taking our profit at all. and this order he taken very much time which has made our turnover difficult, we also he our difficulty Ann, it's not because we do not want to help, it's because we are unable to do it.
It's Saturday today already and we will be on holiday from next Tuesday, I he been stressful, and he to report to my boss soon, pls give me your feedback. thanks.
ANN回复： I he gone over everything and this is what I can do now for us to stay in budget for this month. Would you please give me a PI for the item 1 and send that one, I will wire the money asap and than give you the wire transfer number. While you are away I can than wire the money for the item 2 and 3 and when you can or when you get back you can send those. This way we will stay in budget and can handle the shipping costs. I hope this is alright with you.
I am sorry to cause you stress, it makes me very sad; I do want a long relationship with you and do not want to cause any stress. Please let me know if this is good and than tomorrow I will wire the money. I will need the item 1 sent though before you lee.
