If anyone is interested in discussing and participating with establishing idea for a kind of open source bitcoin merchandising operation/business/project, come to #bitcoin-merch and I will begin discussing it soon.

Idea: I'd like to establish a collective bitcoin merchandising operation in which anyone anywhere can sell and distributing merchandise (kind of like a franchise) in which the bitcoin merchandise is managed/organized collectively and made available for sale throughout the world.  Particularly of interest is a way for artists/designers to also profit from their designs on merchandise.

I'd like to establish it in an open source fashion.

For example what I, or anyone else, can do is figure out best methods of merchandise production with various imagery/designs/etc and to make them available for sale to anyone interested in buying them.

Additionally, anyone can participate in bulk ordering and warehousing (even in their own home or whatever) to help distribute products.

"In the case of alibaba merchants requiring minimum quantity for bulk orders, and oftentimes it being much cheaper to buy in bulk as well as shipping in bulk, in a kind of distributed community effort, a network of peers can help to provide a worldwide distribution of merchandise."

I can't warehouse, but I will commit to buying a few things (shirts and a hat?) at a reasonable price for payment in coins.

Open source aren't known for their approach to logistics but perhaps... bitcoin would allow for some unique compensation methods.

It's got potential simply because it's unique, but there's a lot to figure out ... incentives, logistics, product development.

I like the challenge! and the idea.

<necrodearia>   Basically, as I (and anyone) begins developing it, the source code for it can be open source to make it easier for others to contribute and recognize how it works. - Free Printable Bitcoin Certificates.  A Transparent Company. - Reviews and Interviews.
