To Show The Price Or not?

6 replies
Hiya

I have created a few affiliate review sites in the past, these sites reviewed herbal supplements and I had never displayed the price of the product as I thought this may put of the customer.

My new site features herbal supplements that comes in different supplies, the more they buy the cheaper they become individually.

I was wondering if it would be a good idea to break down the packages on my review site and also show the price of each supply.

I think my question is ultimately is it a good idea to display the price of the product or presell them and let the merchants site worry about letting them know the price?

Thank you

    I don't display the price of the product because it's not under my control.

    Imagine that you sell a $15 product and say "it's only $15" on your site.

    If the vendor lowers the price to $10, maybe people who would have paid $10 think "$15 is too much!" and don't buy.

    If the vendor raises the price to $20, maybe people who want to pay $15 think "that ******* tricked me!" and don't buy.

    So unless I want to spend all my time looking at the prices of my affiliate products and updating my sites to have the right price on them, I probably shouldn't show the price.

      Hi

      yeah I can understand that

      The prices of the products I do promote do not usually change, perhaps it would be better for me to just provide the amount they would be saving per package plus bonuses etc

      Thank You

        I don't put the price either. We're just warming up customers. I'm pretty sure that if you put the price, your visitor might find it a bit expensive although if he had known the price only at the end of the merchant page, he would have been willing to buy it.

        No price. But the detail of the advantages, bonuses, yes!

      Exactly. I can't even keep up with vendors who change their links or close their program without warning, let alone keep tabs on prices every week or so. And some vendors get really mad if you display an incorrect price on your website. So save yourself the bother and leave prices off.

    I'm not an expert in affiliate sales but I would say they see the price sooner or later - it doesn't matter. Probably if you display the price your CTR will go down but your conversion will go up since only people that accept the price will click on your links.

    I blog about my experiences working on home businesses, and have felt that I should juts be honest about them to gain trust. Did I spend $150 to get started? Yes. Do I try and qualify that by letting my reader understand the profitable side of the business? Yes.

    I think most people are very wary about being scammed on the internet, and this has led me to believe that honesty must be the best policy. We're not trying to scam or steal from anyone, and so we should be able to be up front with our business. I believe in the strength of what I'm doing, and I hope that strength will show through just being honest.
