Cisco Meraki has a unique distribution model worldwide due to the fact the hardware and licenses are assigned to the particular end user that acquires the product. Here's the key takeaways from our Cisco Meraki Buying Guide.
There is no stock held by any Reseller in the USA - all new Meraki orders ship directly from their California, USA warehouse direct to the customer via Fedex. This is of course unless it's second hand, grey market or refurbished stock.
It typically takes up to 24-48 hours for Meraki to process an order and ship it - even if expedited. All hardware products ship via Fedex ground by default to you at no extra cost because the freight is built into the price we pay as a reseller.
We'd encourage you to choose your Reseller first (hopefully us!) and let us go to work for you to get the best price. We offer all inclusive pricing with free freight and the USA power cord included. We see a lot of our competitors advertise a cheap price on a device and then charging you extra for a power cord and even more for a freight/processing fee.
We are other Reseller and Consultant friendly! If you are NOT a Cisco Meraki partner and need to supply your customer, we are happy to work with you. We work mainly with IT Managers that need a fast, consistent and expert service. No order is too small or too large for us to accomodate.
We will work with you to provide the information you need to properly quote and supply your customer's requirements within the parameters of our Reseller Agreement with Cisco. We will get the best pricing possible by working with the Cisco Meraki team and be mindful that you need to share in the margin too when quoting!
Remember the team at Cloudmanagedwifi are Meraki experts and this is the only networking hardware vendor we work with. We process orders the same day we receive them (within minutes) and always have terms available with the vendor so there is never a delay with shipment due to credit issues.
