40,000.00 PCB

Post by phill104 » Fri Mar 29, 2013 10:54 am

My PCB passed the check and indicated a price of 2.50 each .
But when trying to order it say 40,000.00 each.
What am I doing wrong ?
Thanks

Ordering from BatchPCB is probably what you are doing wrong. Try another supplier.

try these m8. There easier and cheaper with good quality. OSH Park can't be beat for quality.

Gerber files submitted in mm were priced in inches

I think BatchPCB is not going to fix there site. It's been months without any improvement.

Curious, who did you go with?

That's what happens...someone blazes the trail, and offers what no one else does at the time (BatchPCB). They prove that it's a viable business approach, then over time more competitors enter the same market. At some point you have to decide whether you want to put a lot of effort into competition, or (as it was with SparkFun) recognize it's not the primary business and let your competition fill in the gaps.

SparkFun is good at a lot of other things, and they know their customers won't be left hanging since lots of great PCB services are out there now. I got great boards out of BatchPCB for a while, back when it was hard to find PCB suppliers for small prototype boards. It's entirely possible that we still wouldn't have good batched panel services now if SparkFun hadn't paved the way.
