    I recently had a couple of components rejected in an order
    from Newark because there was a minimum of like 875 pieces
    of one item and 1k of another..
    Now looking back in the back that I used, I didn't see any thing
    about a min on those components..
    Today I had waiting for me on my desk, a new catalog.

    So I looked in the pages and saw that the items I wanted only
    20 each of, are still listed. And there is no comment about a
    min. They have the usual single and bulk prices.

    I happen to look on the front cover, it clearly states!
    "No Minimum Order" I'm sure that if some of you deal with these people
    for small orders like we do for proto types and part replacements you
    should have one of those catalogs at your disposal.

    So I had the purchasing department give them a call on these items
    that we just got rejected on. They gave us the same run around.

    So, what does one do with a company like that? Its kind of aggravating
    since I am limited as to who I can buy from with out a CER for a major

    Are you allowed to purchase from Digi-key? They are frequently
    mentioned as a good source for small quantities. Another possibility
    is Mouser.

    Not quite sure what you mean by "back in the back that I used."
    That's the beauty of online ordering; it can reflect real-time
    inventory. I'm guessing here but perhaps they were out of stock on a low
    demand item except for one or more complete reels/boxes/etc. and took
    the decision not to offer the items in quantities smaller than that.
    Translation: We accept orders for any dollar amount and do not require
    that the order totals at least XX dollars (although a small handling fee
    may be added for orders below YY). Once upon a time, many places
    wouldn't accept orders for less than, say, $25.
    Again, I'm guessing but they may not want to be stuck with a partial
    reel of 855 gizmos that they don't expect to be able to sell in the next
    decade or so.

    Try for a parts search engine that queries many
    of the "usual suspects."

    Even Digikey does this.

    An item you once could buy onesies-twosies, now has a gigantic
    I suspect it has to do with how long they sit on the shelves, or
    possibly, for parts that are recently replaced with RoHS. Also, for
    brand new parts - where I guess DK & others have no idea if they'll be
    stuck with them...

    The reverse is also true. Some items with large minimums occasionally
    become available in much smaller quantities.

    Complain to Farnell then. Newark should get a kick up the arse.

    well, these are electrolytic caps we're trying to get and if memory
    serves they were listed for ~ $5 bucks each. (330 Uf 100 VDC, high
    temperature, axle lead);

    We picked out 2 different type of caps, same response for both items.

    Seeing that we ordered 20 of each. I think a $200+ order should be
    enough for them to serve us.

    We can do Digikey, Mouser, Electronx etc... how ever, main head
    quarters for some reason can't see to eye that warrants making an
    account with these people on as a normal supplier.

    So what happens is we have a credit card that we can make limited
    purchases on.
    If How ever, we get a CER past, then we can buy from whom we want but
    that is like pulling teeth."

    That means you can order 1 MOQ of anything. If they have transistors in
    singles for 2 cents, you can put in an order for 2 cents. If however the
    MOQ for another 2c transostor is 100, you have to pay $2.
