'Do Lower Prices Win The Sale'
by Dads Wooden Toys

Under-priced items have you concerned?
have you lost money you should have earned?

To another seller who prices so low
for all of their time there is nothing to show.

The answer of course is unknown for sure
did one of your customers bite at their lure?

But allow me to give you some food for thought
perhaps things are best with the prices you've got.

Pricing the lowest may not win the sale
it's not all buyers want in each case without fail

unless you are selling supplies such as beads
quality craftsmanship is what each buyer needs.

Assuming your content and pictures are great
the question is: How will your product rate

next to a listing that is under-priced
will your sales be stolen by prices so sliced?

If what you are selling requires a skill
and if it's on Artfire most likely it will

then your price tells more than what they should pay.
Confidence in workmanship you also display.

The time you invested into your piece
will appear to be more than the one priced the least.

When buying a commercially produced doodad
comparing just price will make buyers glad.

But when dealing with makers of handcrafted wares
a price that's too low may only get stares.

"Surely they couldn't have worked very hard
perhaps the seller is a fat lazy lard.

I'ld rather pay money for items that last"
They'll say as they remember stuff bought in the past.

Oh sure there are buyers who buy just whats cheap
inside their closets there is most likely a heap

of broken items long since discarded.
But not in the closets of those who are guarded.

Discerning buyers are those that you need
who see that your price is not fueled by greed.

Those buyers are out there don't think that they're not
Artfire is probably their favorite spot.

So make sure your description and pictures show
the work you invested so the buyers know.

It's worth it to buy from your quality store
even when paying a few dollars more.
