With the recent acquisition of my Iro and Buba, being the frugal buyer that I am, I largely complained about the price of the fabric. 4 yards of chiffon for N4000+ seemed like too high a price, although from the comments some of you posted, I should even have been happy for that price! But anyways, it got me thinking... I could never be a seller of anything! I can work in Marketing, in fact I have worked in Marketing, but SALES? Heck no. It's just not for me. Let me tell you why.
If I'm making a large amount of profit, I feel like I'm stealing money from my clients.
Yes yes, I know, it's a dumb way to think. Because if the customer is willing to pay a high price for what I'm selling, then obviously I would be selling (pun intended) myself short by charging a low price. Here's an example: if I buy shoes from the States for $20 and bring them back to Nigeria to sell, I would feel sick if I sold them for anything more than N6000, which is roughly $36. It's the dumbest thing because I should obviously insert the cost of my travels and/or shipping, but I would feel like I'm ripping you off. Isn't that silly?!?!?!?! This the main reason why I don't buy a lot of things here either, because I know what the real prices would be. Maybe I should think about what the cost of flying out would be, and then use that to buy what I need to.
Shey I'm crazy? Anyways, I have a pair of American Size 9 Nine West shoes to sell. Never worn cos they were too small. I'll take N10k for them. Oh and I have some bridal shower/hen night bunny ears too! N20k for all of them (18 or so)
