How To Purchase From The Internet, Cross Border Shop and Karmically Support Good Business Practices!
The world wide web has been an amazing creation of information and convenience. Unfortunately, the Internet has occasionally created the illusion of misleading pricing practices.
Some clients inform us they found a lower price on the Internet.
After careful research, Forever Healthy recommends the following suggestions in dealing with Internet companies to ensure you get an honest, fair, legitimate price and warranty coverage.
Internet Shopping Tips
Here’s what you need to know.
1. Choose carefully who you purchase from:
a. Avoid illegally and unethically advertised products at a low price, in violation of the manufactures’ agreements of the products. Please check pricing carefully, and if significantly different, we would appreciate if you report both to us and to the manufacturers!
b. Confirm that the vendor is an authorized dealer.
c. Confirm the company is actually located in North America, or the country you are purchasing from, if the product is not available in your country.
d. Confirm a phone number for the company and make sure the phone number works and you actually talk to the web site business.
Note: Forever Healthy will NOT do business with any company that does not have a phone number, and we have confirmed by talking to a real ‘live’ person.
e. Manufacturers will not honour the warranty, if sold by an unauthorized dealer or a web site business that sold at a lower price than specified as per manufacturers’ contracts/agreements.
Unfortunately, customers choosing low pricing prevents the honest sellers from making a living abiding by contracted manufacturers’ agreements. We all have to be “Buyers Beware”.
a. Shipping Costs – Add in more expenses when shipping over the border.
b. Customs Broker Costs – These additional costs can average from $25 to $70 or more, to allow a product into the country, as a customs broker is assigned, either automatically or by choice.
For example, if you ship by UPS, they will call you and ask you if you will allow them to be your customs broker. They often charge double what our customs broker charges.
c. Approval Codes – Documenting these on all products that have it can reduce your duty or even eliminate it. Believe me, shippers do NOT take the time to look them up for you. We have literally saved thousands of dollars on orders by having a special customs broker work for us.
d. Duty – Add an extra amount to the product because it is not made in North America.
e. Taxes – Provincial/State and/or duty taxes.
f. Customs Delays In Canada, approximately 1 in every 100 shipments coming into the country is stopped and/or held for inspection. Customs will also hold any items that are priced suspiciously low or have improper paperwork. Shipments can be held at the border for days or even weeks!
If your product is refused, it can be days or weeks for products to be returned to the shipper and even longer for you to get your money returned!
Forever Healthy had an item that we returned to the U.S., and it was not only refused by the FDA/U.S. customs, but then on top of that, customs actually threw the product away! Forever Healthy lost over $400!
When Forever Healthy purchases by the pallet and gets the order delivered by truck, we can offer the product at the same, or often even lower prices, than you buying it directly from the United States.
The bottom line is, buy locally as much as possible. It’s often not worth the extra time and extra costs!
Honourable Relationship Pricing
Forever Healthy supplies some of the most well known Health Practitioners, Health Stores and Health Centers in North America! All of them we sell to, honour our sincere business relationship. If we introduce and educate them on a product, they buy from us!
Negotiating the price is as simple as them asking us for our best price. We always do and the deal is done! I have found that no matter what kind of shopping I do, I just simply ask 1 time, “What is your best price?” I do not ‘haggle’ as I find after being in business for 15 years, that haggling with someone on new products (used products is the only time to haggle, but not new items as the person is making a living) is like asking them to lower their income! We ALL deserve to make a living! If we all honour each others’ efforts, the good karma will come back to you.
