Our Simple Pricing

AISLER is simple manufacturing for your electronics project. We believe pricing should be simple and transparent, too. No hidden fees, just one fixed Job Fee and one variable fee. That's it. We even built a ruby gem for you to play around with. Have a look on Github. If you just want to briefly grab your calculator, we've listed all pricing formulas here.

Please note: For simplicity, pricing formulas described here are net-price formulas. Please add respective attributable VAT where required (e.g. if you are a consumer). The formulas described here do not conclude an official offer, but are for informational purposes only.

Why we charge a Job Fee?

Every job your purchase comes with a fixed Job Fee. That fee varies depending on the product or service you order. It pays for the order's overhead, which is:

  1. Selecting the best affordable local manufacturing partner that fits your project's requirements
  2. Providing all required documents for the selected partner (which can be more complicated depending on the technology used)
  3. Controlling the quality of your job after it has been manufactured
  4. Shipping it to your location on time
  5. Ensuring the all accounting departments are happy
  6. Providing you with best-in-class support
Why we charge an area-usage or handling Fee

The variable fee allows us to provide you with a great quality circuit board, stencil or parts package, which includes:

  1. Selecting the right material, and choosing the most affordable distributors
  2. Ensure that only high quality machines are being used
  3. Pay the manufacturing operators a fair salary
  4. Ensure all processes are environmentally friendly to the highest standards

Amazing Assembly Product Icon Amazing Assembly

Assembly Price = Beautiful Boards + Stellar Stencil + Precious Parts + Assembly Fee

Currently you can only order one-side SMD assembly. We will purchase all parts for your convenience and send them along. Making assembly pricing easy to understand is a bit more complicated. Our Checkout will include all components required (hence Beautiful Boards, Stellar Stencil, and Precious Parts) plus the Assembly fee explained below:

Assembly Fee = Setup Fee + Handling Fee + Placement Fee

The Setup Fee pays for setting up the machines and loading the components, whereas the Handling fee pay for all supporting processes of the actual assembly (i.e. paste printer, reflow, etc), finally the Placement fee pays for the actual component placement on the boards.

Price Component Job Fee Variable fee Cost Driver
Setup Fee € 75.00 € 4.50 Part Variance
Handling Fee - € 0.01 Area x Quantity
Placement Fee - € 0.05 Parts assigned x Quantity

Amazing Assembly for 10 PCBs (7.0 cm x 5.0 cm) with 5 different parts and 20 total parts:
Price = 75.00€ + 5 different parts x 4.50 €/different part + 10 PCB x (7.0cm x 5.0cm)/PCB x 0.01€/cm2 + 20 Parts/PCB x 10 PCB x 0.05€/Part = 97.50€ + 22.50€ + 10.00€ = 130 €
