Hi Friends,

I wanted to buy a mat today from amazon and checked the price as I liked it. When searching on google the real MRP is around 50% lesser than amazon selling price. I wonder customers are cheated this way or I am wrong here? I spoke to customer care and they say its from seller side even 10rs product they can sell at 1000rs. there is no policy around that.

Amazon charges hefty fees, add shipping etc.

Offline is always better priced.

Its not shipping. The quoted price itself is double of official MRP.

As said by other there are charges seller has to pay to amazon so they increase the price to compensate for them.
Over that product prices can’t be fixed unless there is some standard MRP which is not there in case of such products.
Similar happens in offline market too you can get one product at different prices from different shops.
Over that most of seller are just resellers they buy them from local market and resell them.
So if you are from cities like Delhi or any other which are origin of these product you can get them at cheap prices easily.
But same is good for the people from cities who don’t have reach to these products easily.
Plus can’t underestimate the convenience, online offers and other such factors which make people to buy these online even at higher prices.

Bro @carez; the seller has to pay seller fee to Amazon and also shipping charges after all these he/she gains only some profit

And also if we order and return something seller has to bear the shipping charges also it costs around 50-70 after all these sellers get very less profit

Hence buy the products on which u get more discount compared to offline

But don’t tell sellers are fake because it’s there business to earn

Agree guys my mistake. I was thinking it’s sellers charging as they wish.

I spoke to one of my friends and agree with your views. A seller has to pay lot of money from his side.

Completely WRONG info…Check any big appliance or smartphone price on Amazon & then go to your local shop to compare the prices…You will be shocked then & will write here that all the local shop-owners are cheating customers…

Amazon sellers are there to earn & do business…For every product being sold, they have to pay Amazon the shipping charges & product listing/selling charges…Plus there are return shipping costs for RMA orders & order cancellation charges which have to be paid by the seller only & not by the customer or the Amazon…Not even including the invoice printing costs, A4 Paper costs, Stamp ink costs & packaging boxes costs etc…Still they provide the items at much cheaper cost than any local shop…

I was a seller on both Amazon & Flipkart too so I know that the charges are hefty which the sellers have to pay to Amazon…
