Fornicola Butuzova Posted June 14, 2011 Share Posted June 14, 2011 So they want to do the Groupon mechanic in SLM.Interesting, all I have to do is cut my price in half, and give half of whats left to LL.Groupon is a scam in RL and it damages small businesses. But in SL we have no real fixed material costs so what is the harm.Well try explaining the some body that paid 15k ofr a house yesterday, that they could have bought it today for 7500L less. Not a fun conversation. They say they are focusing on popular items from poprulat mechants. Hmm should i pay full price now for this house I like, or wait, this builder is popular on SLM, ill just wait to see if iot ends up on a "Dash Deal"And if you do get in a "Dash deal", and sell a zillion units, good luck selling any tomorow, you just saturated your market, and earned 1/4 of the price to do it.If I were a new merchant I would jump on it as soon as they let me, but as an established one it is an exploitaive and distructive practice,Saturating your market, devaluing your mechandise, creating uncertainty about your pricing, selling at 50% off, at a 50% comisson to fo it.IMHO of course.
