In my opinion, these discounts are not ethical. If you can give this product at this discounted price, why do not give it for a whole year at the discounted price? What is your opinion on that topic?

@Faruk, there are many reasons why businesses would give discounts to their customers at a certain point of the year and not apply a year-round discount.

(Note that I’m not referring to the giants such as Amazon/Wall Mart etc. but to smaller businesses)

First, this can create engagement with customers. You can run a time-limited promotion just in order to great a small buzz around your product and get multiple people to mention this to additional people.

Second, this can be useful for accounting purposes, but that really depends how you run your business and audit your books.

Third, we see it as an act of “Thank You” or appreciation to our customer and the community.

Some businesses can probably permanently use a 50% discount, I’m sure about that, but in general it is not sustainable in the long term for smaller businesses.

Just my 2 cents.

Hi @SecondLineThemes,

Thanks for your reply. I just want to push you to think about the discount’s ethical side. Not on the business side.

Have you ever thought about your other customers who are paid much more than your discounted price? For the same product. Are they very rich? Maybe. Are they stupid? Of course not. But, they have paid much more. Maybe, they have missed the discounted price with just a few days. There is something wrong.

P.S. I just want you to look at another perspective for the discount.

@Faruk, I see your point, but it’s not about being rich or stupid. Prices in our world vary, and that’s just part of the marketplace. I don’t believe it’s unethical to offer a discount at some point. It’s not that you charge people from one country double than what you charge people who are located elsewhere. It’s a temporary pricing decrease, some people would benefit from it, and some won’t. That’s just the way it is.

The real unethical things are automated pricing, intruding tracking, ads and so on. I don’t think a temporary discount can harm or be frustrating for any of the customers that did pay the full price on a different date.

@Faruk That’s another point of view but you won’t probably call it ‘discounted’ price anymore just the regular price :wink:
