Manufacturer Vs Retailer's Price
I am into trading business. Supporting mid size and large companies to get manufactured their products on Top Quality at minimum pricing. I wonder about the huge difference of amount that a buyer have to pay over a manufacturer price. The picture above is of Nike Total 90 Football. The price mentioned is US$140 and its reduced price is now $119.99. May be you think it is good discount. But for me if i do costing from manufacturer end, i can calculate its cost as US$8.00 maximum. I manufactured JC Penney T shirts at US$2.00 per shirt while its retail price was US$9.00. Similarly the top bedsheets brands made in factories here have manufacturer offer price of US$10 while they are sold as $55 on retail. Though it is not possible to develop a ratio between manufacturer and retail price but it is obvious that the difference which a buyer has to pay is too huge to imagine. It is even more than the cost of the product. Do you think it is justified?. I think we should work on some ideas to link manufacturers with retailers and buyers. What do you think?.
