There can't be anything more annoying than taking stuff to a checkout, only to realise the price advertised was excluding VAT, or some sort of tax (sorry America, you're bad at this).
So, why should it be any different when you're an entrepreneur who just wants to know what your unit costs will be on garments, so you can figure out your gross margins and mark-ups? Unfortunately, the manufacturing sector has somewhat been flooded with businesses who provide a unit cost- excluding shipping, VAT, import fees and every other, seemingly meaningless charge under the sun...
Now, we don't want to mention which of our competitors does this because that would just be free marketing for them... but all I can say is we've had a lot (like really, a lot) of people come to us explaining how their supposedly and ironically titled "transparent pricing" isn't really as transparent as they make out. Now, we don't think we're the best- we still have a lot of work to do, and want to continuously strive to improve our products and services, but we always wanted to ensure we made the entire process as easy and straightforward as possible for clients and that's really at the heart of everything we do.
That's why we include everything- shipping, fabrics, labour, customisation, customs and VAT fees all under one bracket... no messing about, just straight to the point.
Ultimately, the manufacturing sector has always been a bit of a pain. Putting price aside, the risk of being scammed, or the lack of communication, the empty promises or lack of quality and reliability throughout and consistently across the board has led to most people to really doubt what manufacturers say. We're breaking the stereotype, one small step at a time.
So, why are we telling you this? Are we subliminally trying to sell you our products and services? We'll let you decide that for yourself, but I'll just leave this very important link below...
