Saving money buying stationery online
Jan 25 Pricing
Prices characterized by constant fluctuation are called "dynamic". Nowadays the Internet is full of retailers and e-commerce ready to apply this kind of strategy. With patience and time, is rather easy finding good deal on the items you're interested in, with prices different one another up to 50%.
In these terms, if you are quite good on tiping on Google and you have enought time to make a deep research, you can find a dress, an air conditioner, a bag or rather some jewellery with 50% off price.
Usually a 10% off is easy to find on the Internet at anytime of the year.
Saving always 10% off to any online purchasing means that you actually have a free month from work during the year, and so to say, finding in your pockets the same amount of money when consumptions are equivalent. It isn't bad is it?
If we apply what I just wrote above to the business environment we may find out that this is the main focus when talking about the annual budget. Saving money for forniture and stationery, for a company means more budget for marketing, R&D and salaries. Not all the companies are selling their items online, but all of them can purchase on the Internet for sure. If some years ago some specific items were not available or worthy on the Internet, today it's not like that anymore. The e-commerce on the Internet is daily growing, and more and more are the e-commerce among which to choose when it comes to purchase online. Thanks to marketplaces, b2b websites and e-commerce, today anything is purchasable on Internet.
Due to the total cost or to the specific contract terms, making the online payment is not always possible, but still purchasing online is always a great deal.
The only important issue regarding the private costumer or the company purchasing department is: how long do they need to invest, in terms of time, to get to know the right price of an intem they want to purchase online?
The time-cost combination necessary for finding the best deal needs to be added to the best online deal. The result may be far above the prices we can easily find in the traditional shops.
The time-cost is getting smaller when increasing the items to purchase, but it's not always possible making a big purchase.
More than 90% of the companies are always struggling when it comes to choose the best option between the online and the offline purchase.
