Silicon Valley, CA (PRWEB) October 30, 2016
Silicon Valley startup Pooki’s Mahi of 100% Hawaiian Kona coffee pods announced it implemented inventory controls to prevent unapproved resellers from selling its popular Kona coffee pods.
Pooki’s Mahi cracks down on unapproved resellers. Pooki’s Mahi actively monitors unapproved resellers. Unapproved resellers undercuts Pooki’s Mahi brand, Kona coffee pods and run aggressive product review campaigns on marketplaces like Amazon. Pooki’s Mahi’s repeat customers and brand advocates complained about the poor customer experience.
Pooki’s Mahi reseller requirements have been in place since 2015. All orders have an order number and are tracked in various Pooki’s Mahi systems. Pooki’s Mahi will not provide customer support from unapproved reseller orders.
Pooki’s Mahi has strict rules and policies defining wholesalers and resellers. The best value for 100% Hawaiian Kona coffee pods is through Pooki’s Mahi’s six-month subscription plans. Customers pay $40.80 per box with complimentary expedited shipping to the Lower 48 states included. Pooki’s Mahi wholesale option is a coffee club for repeat customers who want to save but want more flexibility than the 6-month subscription plan. Resellers are businesses selling goods at a markup.
Les Magsalay-Zeller, Pooki’s Mahi Founder/CEO explains, “Pooki’s Mahi’s approved resellers submit orders on Pooki’s Mahi. Affiliate marketing, bloggers and companies unable to provide proof of business insurance, business reseller license or Tax ID are not approved resellers. Marketplaces like Amazon will use affiliate marketing or bloggers to help sell a product. Often times customers purchase Kona coffee pods sold below the manufacturing approved price. The Kona coffee pods are not 2.0 and 1.0 single serve coffee maker compliant. Customers file complaints via Pooki’s Mahi’s Customer Success Center.”
The Silicon Valley exec continues, “Pooki’s Mahi does not use affiliate marketing or bloggers to sell its prized Kona coffee pods. Pooki’s Mahi Kona coffee single serves are individually wrapped in a thin pouch with an expiration date and LOT code next to the nutrition label. Pooki’s Mahi prefers fewer resellers that understand digital marketing and have an existing customer base. Pooki’s Mahi is not interested in onboarding resellers that do not follow Pooki’s Mahi reseller policies. Pooki’s Mahi thoroughly vets its resellers. This includes but not limited to checking credit, security and social media presence.”
The Silicon Valley startup requires business to apply to resell Pooki’s Mahi’s prized 100% Kona coffee pods. Interested resellers must submit a Tax ID, business resellers permit and business insurance at the time of the application. Marketplaces like Amazon require proof of business insurance to sell products. Approved resellers who sold Pooki’s Mahi’s Kona single serve coffee pods for two years and have submitted $85K in monthly orders may qualify for a Pooki’s Mahi distributor discount of up to 40% off the manufactured approved price (MAP).
