Hey all! Sorry for keeping the second floor a little empty this past week. A lot of us have been really busy IRL, but next week should be a little freer. Instead of reselling our ore and other materials, we have decided to push them through their normal throughput and sell them as a midway product. We will be changing and monitoring these prices more closely over the next few weeks to make sure that you are getting the best deal in the game (assuming that we aren’t taking losses). We have increased our prices in our regular gem baskets so come check them out!

We have also started selling metals along with their various stages for cheaper than you’d find elsewhere! Make sure to check them out! More coming soon :slight_smile:

Are you still making a profit at these prices, even though you’ve been buying gems for more than omni? Doesn’t really sound like the economy is crashing…


#52

YES! Thankfully we are still making profits! Some prices are not at our recommended threshold, this will probably be the cheapest we will put them at. If competition tries to take losses on these items just to gain more foot traffic we will slow down.

Illegal in real life, we won’t ever purposely take losses just to try to push someone out of the market.


#53

@Simoyd would rage out if you lost his investment :joy_cat:


#54

No predatory pricing here, I’ll be making more profit at this level. My data shows that I can sustain it. Depending on market response I’ll be gradually dropping lower to further up my profit…

Him and the others xD

An interesting strategy I learned from working in the restaurant industry and then in bartending, is how beers are priced… It’s often done on a sliding scale–higher margins on the cheapest items and the lowest margins on the most expensive items. This serves a few purposes…

The first reason it’s done is because time is money. The person serving you that beer gets paid regardless of its wholesale cost, and it takes just as long to serve you that lousy can of Bud Light as it does a Modelo Especial. So, you’re setting your prices with an eye toward the number of customers you can handle during business hours and not just the value of what they’re purchasing. You’re also looking at overall volume, because the things that people buy the most of are the things that you can add a penny to the price and still make a big impact on your business.

The other reason is something a little more clever… Using a fixed percentage markup can make some items seem prohibitively expensive, which in turn will discourage buyers. Having everything on a sliding scale ensures that you still hit your target percentage of profit while being able to offer a wide spectrum of products. And when you have more variety at better overall prices, that brings in more visitors.

The last part of that is also a little bit of a sales trick… When the price difference between a range of items is pretty similar, it becomes a little bit easier for people to justify moving up a tier with their purchases. As an example, maybe you make a lower PERCENTAGE of profit with a Diamond Hammer as opposed to a Silver one, but you may still make more money in gross sales.

A good guide to how it works, if you feel like a bit of reading:

#57

Yep! We’ll actually be rearranging some prices soon to mimic this. Thanks for the read <3


#58

We’ve got good news and bad news!

Our super limited time Diamond Hammer, Shovel, Axe sale is over! The good news though is we’ve revised the price of all of our Sapphire, Topaz, and Emerald tools! Most tools slashed by about 500-1000 coin each! Even Diamond Bombs have been reduced!
