Do we offer discounts on our website?
Yes. We have a 10% discount offer that is automatically applied when two or more stencil or decal products are added to your cart, and 15% for four or more. This offer does not apply to Gift Cards.
Are we doing this just to encourage you to spend more money?
We definitely like it when our customers buy more than one item as we want to spread the Dizzy Duck Designs products far and wide. However, this offer is simply giving back some of the savings made from less packaging being used per product sold. Here are some of the benefits of buying several items at once:
- You get 10% or 15% off all qualifying products
- We make a little extra profit due to less packaging per item
- Less packaging per item is better for the environment (even though much of our packaging can be recycled there is still an environmental cost to the recycling process)
- Buying two or more items in one package is one delivery as opposed to two or more which again does a little to help the environment.
How long is this offer on for?
We cannot promise anything forever, but, it is our intention to keep this running indefinitely. Wherever we can save a little we will do the best we can to share those savings with our customers.
Do we do short term, 'flash' sales or event discounts?
We try not to. In fact, we haven't done a flash sale for a very long time, even at key shopping times such as Black Friday. We know how frustrating it can be to buy something today only to discover tomorrow that there is 10% off, or a buy one get one free offer. We have made this mistake before and the confidence of our customers is far more important to us than the extra orders gained in a flash sale. It is also frustrating to wait for a sale that never happens when you really need your items soon.
How do we deal with slow moving products or overstock?
We know that many companies will apply discounts to products in order to reduce stock. We do not hold any stock. Instead, we produce our stencil and decal products to order so we never have shelves full of slow moving products that require huge offers to sell them.
In summary, we want our customers to have confidence that they won't find the product they recently bought from us suddenly on offer. We also don't want our customers delaying their projects by waiting for key shopping dates (e.g. Black Friday or January sales) when they really need their items sooner. We are always looking at ways to save money, be more environmentally friendly and to make our processes as streamlined as possibly so we can continue to pass these saving on to our customers in the form of a continuous quantity related discount.
