Product pricing is never a straightforward conversation. Our team strives to be a positive liaison between our sellers and customers, providing both with fair market value. However, a combination of many factors impact the final price of a product, including:
Our industry is not immune to global market conditions. Is there too much supply of a specific product? Is the US dollar strong or weak against other currencies? Is demand strong? Are there conflicts in regions where product is normally sold? All of these examples and more play a role in where pricing for any specific product lands. Our team keeps a close eye on these global market influencers and shares them openly with our Sellers and customers.
Baled vs. loose cloth; bric brac that is carefully packaged to limit breakage; clean well-stacked capsacks; baling processes that do not rip clothing….all of these are packaging factors that are taken into consideration. When we visit seller locations we always look to help improve package processing because we know there is a direct correlation with quality and price.
The final destination of your product can sometimes influence pricing with currency fluctuations being considered, as well as government and infrastructure stability.
