Let know if you received the new invoice.
You told me you will place a container of lounge chair set.
Is it price or cost’s issue?
How are the sales of your goods?
I got your another proforma invoice, thank you for sending it so promptly.
It is difficult to tell from my screen the differences in colors—basically I am looking for a matt walnut finish.
The chairs are very good quality and I am very happy with them—and will be placing another order. I am finding that the market is slower at the moment - so we are getting low prices for the ones that we are selling so far.
I hope to place the next order by the start of next week.
I think our price can meet both middle and high market clients.
Low pricing is also workable but clients may have higher expectations. So maybe high quality can make sales faster, as you know your competitors are chasing for price wars on market. But clients always expect to spend higher money if he can get an high durable or much better products. Not like the large ranges all same quality and kinds on UK EBAY.
We also buy things in Taobao. (EBAY) but things are almost same, if there are creative and good explanations. We always buy the proper and durable one not price’s sakes.
You can compare with foam, leather pipings,veneer and back picture, alum parts, Herman Miller legs. You are selling with good reputation and warranty. No worries for custom service.
I hope you can make 200 sales each month.
Matt finish you already made me know. It is on the invoice already. We will not deliver gloss finish anymore.
In addition, I think you can save the below costs:
1. Repack charges. With bad packing you have to hire someone to pack again. Some clients have paid more 30~40USD/set to repack when they received.
2. Customer service. Some clients receive the chair and clients complaint. They have to replace it, or return policy. It will bring double charges at buying price from an exporter.
3. Long warranty. Some client wants more than 1 year warranty. But our Barcelona chair will be no big problems for 3~4 years. The home clients are still happy buying from me LCL since he bought at 2005. I can give the names if you need.
4. Customer expectations.
Clients will be happy if your quality range raised one or two levels. Some clients asked discount when the goods have not met their expectations.
5. Fast shipment
We have cooperated faster ships. They charged us same price as normal speed ships, but maybe can save 2~6 days based on different ports.
Price war will make profit disappeared at all competitions. Make closer up pictures on EBAY page. You can win by quality; you can win the real lovers of classics furniture.
We Chinese have been very bad talking in design addict. They told us only do low inferior quality products , many people told they will gather 3 months income to buy an original one instead of buying knock off or copycat.
Many thanks and kind regards.
