Can you confirm those prices? At the moment it shows that the pen costs nearly twice as much outside of India as it does inside.  Thanks.

It is definitely a beautiful pen :)

So, it begs the questions;  Why the big markup for overseas? and what makes this such a good deal for overseas customers at twice the domestic cost?

Pen number will be mentioned in a Certificate Card which will be sent with box.

 

The Certificate Card will have the Pen Number, Customer Name and Country.

Dear Sir,

 

Thank you and EOC for raising this query

 

Pricing is decided basis many factors. Some important factors are like handling & shipping costs, Service Costs, PayPal Fees and also considers local subsidies. My costs for international buyers has to be higher, cannot be at Par with domestic costs.

 

Also, this pricing is product dependent.

 

Come July due to local tax law changes, my Indian prices have to increase by 18%, as subsidies are being taken off. At that time local INR prices will increase, so have to factor that too, while deciding price of this product.

 

 

I have tried to be most reasonable with the costs as always. I have more or less maintained the Ratio of difference between Domestic Pricing Vs International Pricing.

 

I hope this clarifies. I wish to be transparent with all my clientele with respect to pricing.

 

Please feel free to ask more questions as it helps clarifying this.

While I appreciate your "transparency", I find the economics of of this particular Group Buy a bit baffling. Surely the idea of a group buy (and all the free marketing on FPN) is to make the pen more attractive. Most (if not all) other countries that pens sell abroad actually make the purchase cost more attractive so as to actually sell the product. The European and American companies actually reduce the export price buy dropping the purchase tax. 17% for the UK and 20% for Germany. As a rule the actual postage does not increase the purchase price by between 50 and 100%. If you sold on Ebay you would have significantly greater selling costs anyway.

 

Even allowing for the proposed increase to Indian customers of 18% and lets say 10% P&P...(but less the Ebay cost)..the purchase cost of $116 (Australian) for me against $67 (Australian) for Indian buyers pushes this pen into a whole different league as it were.

 

Or am I missing something?

Just ordered. Couldn't resist the orange. This will be my first Indian Pen (although I may go in on the Ranga group buy, too)!

 

Thank you for the great offer.
