iPhone home button gaskets, do you do these on their own? I only tend to buy the gaskets for the iPhone 5 as they are the cheapest to get in bulk and they fit all home buttons across the range. Perhaps considering 'trade packs' for odds and sods like this might be something to consider, although I will admit things like this are amongst the few bits that I source via eBay simply because they're tuppence to buy and its a case of it either works or it don't.

I agree with Mach, also ipad home button gaskets.  I would like to see microsoldering components, plenty of people selling them on ebay but would prefer to buy through a prefered supplier like Replacebase.  Even phone unlocks.

Thanks guys,

We do stock the home button gaskets but only individually - we have started bulking common items in packs and given the feedback we have ordered loads of gaskets so we can bundle them in cheaper packs for you guys (in 5s and 10s)

For example here is one we have for some iPhone adheisve

With board level components, this is very much something we are working on at the moment and you will soon see a full range [smile] 

Anything else please let us know, always open to new products and will act on and recommendations.

Great to here Steve, from my personal point of view I think Replacebase is great.  Great customer service over the phone, Great website, Great forum, Great working with customers to mutually help each other, Great warranty, Great product quality.  I think you pretty much have the full package for DIYers however I believe you are missing out on so much trade, well me for 1 due to price which you are no where near.  Obviously I understand your overheads however would be good if you could reconsider your trade prices, I believe you could take the country by storm but need to sharpen your pencil.  Im happy to discuss out of the public eye ;o)

Thanks Andy, some good feedback

We do work hard on price, we try to balance the fine line between quality and price, nothing worse then letting a customer down due to faulty parts so we try to limit this as much as possible by using more premium parts.

A lot of what we do costs a good amount of money, for example iPhone batteries, you can get these shipped on eBay for £4-5 however they are usually (illegally) shipped using Royal Mail (not a specialist) and dont have any CE certification (usually just a fake CE stamp on the battery) - all of ours are shipped appropriately and are fully safety certified (with CE, RoHS and MSDS available) and are the best quality available.

If you haven't recently take a look at your trade account it could be worth having a little browse around as we have been passing on as much discount as possible, for example we have recently reduced iPhone screen prices across the board - iPhone 7 Plus LCD is now about £45 on a trade account, for the quality and warranty i dont think you can find much better offers [smile]

Keep an eye out, we are rolling out new ways to save you money (like bulk packing consumables and common parts)

Im defiantly up for a chat, always happy to speak to those in the trade and see if we are missing something important and work with you to make sure you have everything you need

Cheers

Hi Steve, thanks for your reply.  I totally agree what your saying, however my currant supplier to be fair to them is very good & great quality AAA screens that rarely have issues.  I'll look at your trade prices to compare however I dont have a trade account.  I could not register for it as I am only a sole trader, probably like a good chunk of repairers.  With being a sole trader I dont have a company registration number, as your online trade account information requires 1, I could not fill that bit in which is mandatory.  I did speak to someone a fair while back over the phone and did'nt get much further, and the discount was'nt enough.  Im sure things have changed so deffo worth revisiting as my last screen order was over £1000.

Hi Andy

you defiantly qualify for a trade account. 

We we only ask for information so we can ensure that legitimate people in the trade are getting access to trade prices - PM me your account email and I will get your account upgraded ASAP

Hi guys,

We are currently processing about 120 new parts (all board level components for Apple and Samsung devices)

Just wanted some feedback really.

Small, cheap components like 6s 35pin sn2400 U1401 that usually retail for about £3.50 on eBay and Amazon we are thinking of bundling in packs of 5 for about £8/9 - works out better for us (shipping) and I assume better for you guys as I suspect you rarely buy one at a time?

Higher priced components like iPhone 7 power IC (about £15-20 on eBay) we will keep individual but still on tiered pricing (so you get discount the more you buy)

Does that sound like something that would work for you guys?

Sounds fair to me, you know your competition and their prices as above.  As long as your competitive and good quality which Im sure they will be, your on a winner.  I rob off old baord or purchase components from a couple of good ebay sellers and generally seem good quality however happy to swap to you you guys.  Multi packs shouldnt be a problem as microsoldering should only really be trade users as you have to invested thousands in equipment so outlaying a few more quid wont do any harm.  Plus filters are so darm small you need at least a 10 pack to find where you put them.  Look forward to seeing what you have.  Pls say you have a U3200 (rear cam IC) for a iPhone 6s pls as carnt get 1 in the UK.  Ta

These are all of the parts we are getting in, U3200 isnt in the list but we will take a look around.

Only just seen this topic on smc's.
Really pleased to see that your are going down this route and I'm sure you will become our main supplier if the pricing is good.
One point I would make is don't bother with the bare logic boards as they are no use to anyone other than someone who may want to practice their soldering skills on one. Nobody is ever going to swap components from a damaged board onto a bare board. The work is just way too advanced and even if it was possible it would never be a cost effective solution.

We didn't actually order the boards in the end, just forgot to remove from the top of the list [smile]

We have all of the components here now, just waiting to get though the backlog of other parts waiting to be processed then we will have them online!

I think we will be the best priced in the UK even for small parts like Diodes and Fuses [smile]

Smashing. I knew you would get there in the end. 
Maybe at a later date you may give some thought on MacBook ic's. I appreciate that this forum and your trade is more phone based but the demand is there and if you use EBay as an outlet they will certainly sell

Sorry for the delay Andy, we have them here its just not bee processed yet - its a pretty long job getting them all pictured and processed and we have had a lot of staff holiday recently giving us a bit of a stock backlog - I will try to get this started by next week and get this thread updated as I have them added.

Thanks Andy,

Its a long and slow process its its started! 

It maybe a while before its 100% and not having anyone whos too clued up on BLC we are bound to have a bit of missing info - if you spot anything that needs updating / changing please just let me know [smile]

Hi guys, making good progress.

About 60 items added, about 140 to go from what we have here already, we also have some more on route (some ICs that you guys were asking for that are missing from our current range and also more "Kits" that include a few components (like filters, coil, IC and Diodes in 1 pack - Thanks Mark for that suggestion!)

The way the items are listed isnt like the rest of the site (although we have started rolling in search filters), we are using search filters so you guys can select Apple and see all components then use the filters to find the component type and compatibility - seems logical and workable to me but if you encounter any issues just let me know.

Some parts are almost out of stock already, this maybe a frustration at first until we can gauge usage and get the correct amounts in accordingly.

Just Apple for now, we do have some Samsung bits in also and will get these online as soon as Apple has been completed.

Any feedback on price, accuracy and function of the filters would be appreciated 

Its worth mentioning also that some people asked for home button gaskets and adhesives etc, we have started stocking the bulk packs (packs of 5 or 10) on most of these - it brings the cost right down, i think home button rubbers about about £3 for a 5 pack, same with adhesive for most models) - we will continue doing this as we get the stock in.
