“When you look at all the costs, for the average small or medium sized business, the actual costs are a lot different than what you’d think they would be at face value."
Brockport, NY (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
Comparison websites are nothing new. In some cases, it’s pretty easy. All you need to do is compile information from a few different websites or stores and put them all in one place. It just takes time. But for some industries, it’s a little more difficult to figure out exactly what things cost.
Airlines are probably the industry people are most familiar with that have some tricky pricing that make comparison websites a little harder to use. This is because they often charge bag fees, have different levels of in-flight service, multiple stops, and other services or additional charges that aren’t easy to compare at a simple glance. While the promotional products industry isn’t as complicated, there still a few extra charges and fees some companies require that make getting the best price and service a little difficult to decipher.
Pricing can be difficult because different companies have different minimum order quantities, bulk discounts, imprint costs, shipping costs, and personalization fees. Weighing these costs can get a bit complicated – more complicated than it should be according to Top10PromotionalProducts.com.
“In this industry, promo companies are constantly promoting their minimum price for bulk orders, even though people very rarely need 5000 keychains or stress balls,” explained Kyle Powell, manager of Top10PromotionalProducts.com. “We wanted to simplify the process and let people know the best deal for more reasonable order quantities so they aren’t fooled by confusing marketing.”
Between minimum order quantities, tiered pricing, and additional imprinting costs, it isn’t uncommon for order totals to be double what the posted price is.
“When you look at all the costs, for the average small or medium sized business, the actual costs are a lot different than what you’d think they would be at face value. Our goal is to simplify the process and make it easier for busy professionals to make the right decision,” continued Powell.
