headhunter Posted September 9, 2010 Share Posted September 9, 2010 Why can't (if Allmakes quality and prices are competitive) we purchase through our website, automatically giving us a forum discount. Anything purchased through LR4x4 would receive some sort of commission which could be paid into the kitty. LR4x4 acting as an agent for Allmakes. If Allmakes are confident about quality etc then shouldn't be a problem. I'm sure a businessman will be along shortly to tell me why we can't jonost24 The key defining principle of LR4X4 is that we are completely independent and not beholden to any commercial interests be it retailers manufacturers or magazines etc. Allmakes can if they wish offer discounts to LR4X4 members in their signature line, however the transaction would be outside the auspices of LR4X4. Some of our members do have commercial interests in Land Rover accessories etc and they are very welcome on LR4X4 provided they do not use their membership to promote product or services sales. A number are valued contributors that add to the technical, development and general advice on the forums. Some already offer LR4X4 member discounts and one in particular I am aware of has an LR4X4 discount code on their online website. To maintain LR4X4's independence we raise funds through donations, which generally come from members, some of which pay a regular standing order. On occasion additional funds come from LR4X4 apparel sales of tee/sweat shirts etc which derive a small contribution to our coffers. For those of you that are interested the funding section can be found - http://forums.lr4x4.com/index.php?app=core&module=help&do=01&HID=18 John Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
