Newletter Subject: Important Changes — USD Prices for ALL customers @ thebabymarketplace.com
Effective Thursday, November 3rd 2007 thebabymarketplace.com will sell product in USD only. For our Canadian customers this means you get the same LOW price as our southern neighborsâ€™!
Why? Well, you talk â€¦ and we listen! And frankly, I am tired of explaining that I bought the product @ a higher price (I did!) â€¦ I pay duty and brokerage to bring most items into Canada (I do!) â€¦ many of the manufactures require the posted CAD price to be set at a higher price (they do!).
I have decided that to even the playing field â€¦ I will sell to my customers in just one currency the USD.
Why the USD and not the CAD? As mentioned above many suppliers have a suggested price in CAD that is set much higher than the USD price, when I publish a lower price on the internet in CAD, the competition complains and LOUDLY. A few weeks ago I lowered my CAD prices for many items to equal the USD price and I was penalized by several suppliers. So while we are primarily a Canadian company it is in the best interest of ALL of our customers (world wide) to sell in the currency that offers YOU not me the best price.
Youâ€™re probably wondering, why if I pay a higher price, duty and brokerage how I can afford to do this? Truly, I probably canâ€™t â€¦ my profit margin for many products will virtually disappear, BUT I believe that over the next several weeks (months) the dollar will stabilize, the manufacturers will stop â€˜gougingâ€™ the Canadian retailers and until then ïƒ I WANT TO KEEP YOUR BUSINESS!
I hope youâ€™ll consider spending your holiday shopping $ @ www.thebabymarketplace.com. I appreciate your support.
Psst … this isn’t the surprise … I will post about it another day (still can’t find the card reader.
Remember November started off slowly, but let’s really make it something to remember and end it with a bang! I am continuing the give-aways with yet another twist –> this month instead of a prize-per-day, there will be a prize-per-post. Some days all you’ll have to do is comment, other days you’ll have to jump through hoops!
Comments Please … What do you think about the letter above?
EVERY post in November, I’m giving away a free prize (maybe more, but at least one). Just like in the past the winners will be randomly drawn and posted here on the site.
The winner(s) will be able to choose one of any of the prizes listed on the flickr set: Remember November. Once an item is chosen, it will be removed from flickr and will no longer be available (unless I have two … which I do for some).
