33 is really too expensive for a tub of wax.. If it really going to increase, then I might really have to change to another brand.

So what the next best wax??HDF??

Anyway to the 2 smart Alec.
this affects me the most because I am the biggest and by vilain is my sole brand. If prices are like these and I don't get sales.
End of the day I will die out as well. So don't be a smart a$$ and think I would even do such a thing to kill myself.

Now it's not about who is reselling. It's about how ppl will react to the price change and how these events will affect me.
For the other resellers. They have their pomade and HDF.

I feel dumb already by replying you 2 lol

Already feedback with all your concerns to rasmus. Screenshot some of what you all said and send him.

So I am trying. At least I try because I know it's gonna affect me the most. Not even the customers. So Sogata. Save your smart theory OK?

thanks for clarifying gx, but what about the wholesalers like mensbazaar, sgpomade, newman, hairyportal, pomade mike or even those budding by vilain entrepreneurs on carousell? who knows how much stock they might be having on hand now... the twins think by manipulating the price, they are able to influnece the pricing of these sellers? also how are they to ensure that their partners are selling at their pricing and omit them if they disobey the pricing? i really dont get the rationale for it.. isit because u send them the suggestion to limit resellers that triggered the increse in price?
This is one of the dumbest posts I've read in awhile, and I've read some dumb posts lately.

Haha that's what I think so too.
The price increase is across the board and not restricted to only Singapore yes? As a principal, I'm sure the people at By Vilain consider their business as a whole before committing to any increase in SRP. Do you really think that gx has this much pull with the principal? Are you that ****ing naive?

Have you ever asked them if they would like to work with a single, exclusive distributor in Singapore instead?

Resellers buying their stuff and putting it on Carousel isn't entrepreneurism; it's destructive for the the brand and does nothing to build it in a domestic market.

(I'm not referring to anyone in particular)

I did everything. They 2 are very stubborn and refused to listen to my ideas. I am the one who told them people are killing their brand here in Singapore. As well as Asia. If not they wouldn't know.

It's hard to communicate with them since English isn't their first language. But I did try. I am not sure if my idea got across to them.

All they want now is to increase their brand value and pennetrate the market again which was done long ago.
Increasing prices across the board now is also a bad move to increase brand value. It only increase people to switch because switching cost isn't high at all. It's easy to switch. This kind of consumables product.

My sentiments exactly. I just got my mind blown with this post.

I think it's a bit hard.
They are saying that they are just increasing the price to 33 because of the EU union vat tax have to be charged so they are setting inline with the prices of what people in Europe will pay for.

But what they don't know is that VAT tax don't apply to us. Anything that leaves their country is tax free.
What we should sell at is the prices that is without tax.
I just replied Emil email. Let's see what they gonna say.

By right, the products will be charged with GST if one is importing in bulk.

Ya by right. I can absorb gst if it happens but they are pushing 25 % on us because they are charged that tax in their own country.
But they don't pay for tax when goods leave their country.

I don't think they don't know. Anyone who do import/export business know that exports are zero-rated supplies (i.e. tax @ 0%). I guess they just don't want to have the price differential of buying it in Denmark (with VAT) and buying it elsewhere (without VAT). But by charging us the with VAT price when the tax authority doesn't even charge them VAT for it, they are effectively earning 25% more.
