Why are some vendors a lot more expensive than others?

Topic created · 4 Posts · 543 Views
  • I have been using a certain vendor for a long time, I won’t name any names, but he is expensive. Some may know who I am talking about.

    I know what I’m getting every time and the quality is top notch.

    The only caveat is the price. One vial of Test, for example, is nearly double the price of a vial of Test from a vendor here.

    Can anyone explain this to me?

    I am very tempted to try someone like Southern for next blast…

  • No idea why people pay twice the amount. If a source is cheaper and has bloodwork to back it up, go for it.

  • I’d imagine some sources keep prices high to keep overall volume low. Not everyone wants to move high volume in this business.

    Price fixing to control sales volumes is pretty normal. Some of us run smaller operations, less employees, have busier day jobs, or keep odd schedules. Others have higher prices to justify their perceived risk in relation to their received reward. There’s no “market standard” that we all use for pricing, so we all generally price around each other. Some vendors offer higher quality customer service, may have fancier labels or even have boxes that their vials come in, others offer more exotic products and just generally have higher prices due to what they carry.

    Ultimately, and this is what I would recommend to anyone, find a vendor that you like. There are certainly a number of people that I’ve pissed off over the years, intentionally and unintentionally. Some customers simply don’t like me and that’s fine, others love me and I go out of my way to make sure they’re taken care of. Find the vendor that you like working with and work with them until you no longer like working with them.

    We operate on capitalism here so feel free to flex your right to be a consumer and take your business to the vendor that fits the needs you have as a customer.
