Prices too low? Empty Prices too low?

Interesting how I get very few sales of 1/18 IXO at £70 Inc post
Where others are charging £78 plus postage for same and selling loads

Obviously customers must like paying the higher price ?

What's people thoughts?

Not sure why Steven, You'd thing the lower price would always drive sales, especially on places like Ebay.

If its on Facebook, maybe the algorithms are not driving traffic to your page.

Here in Ireland i know a guy selling IXOs at competitive prices which is difficult to match for anyone in the UK when you factor kn postage and not knowing if customs is gonna want their share

steven, for my own personal perspective, with over 240 1:18 models i have prb at least one fom every brand, but the majority are either high-end (autoart, Otto, Kyosho) or mid-range quality (sunstar, UT, solido).. i have a few low-end examples (ixo, altaya) and have no probs with them if the price reflects the quality... i dont really fancy spending more than £70 on one of these, but could stretch a bit if its one i really want... i know retailers and suppliers have to make a profit, but we all have our linits on what we think a model is worth, its no reflection on the retailer, moreso on the brand.. plus it doesnt help that manufacturers seem to be replicatin several models either identical or similar to those done previously by others...
any mate, iv pm'd you re the vatman escos... as always no offence intended
all that being said, it still doesnt explain why other retailers who charge more are getting higher sales than you... sorry mate, unless as brian says theyre reaching a different customer base?
cheers

This go for the lowest price is nothing new. Used to see it years ago when I did Toy and Train fairs as a trader. People would get orders from wholesalers on credit then sell at RRP or above Week 1, Week 2 offer a discount Week 3 a bit more until their bills were due in Week 4 and then they would try and turn stuff over at trade or below. Its called the free market so if anyone wants to play in the viper pit then they need to have their eyes open.
