Q.: Will logistics costs have an influence on platform prices? What can you tell us about goods delivery speed? What is the point of solutions uniqueness? Are there any expenses justification and guarantees? Could you tell more about goods check points?
I. Any extra expenses have a small influence on prices mainly because of two important points:
1. All the goods will be with high marginality level inititally, and sellers are ready to have extra expenses to make sales.
2. We do not change an existing goods delivery model, the only point is that instead of bringing it to export point our sellers will bring it to check point, further business process will continue almost in the same way, excepting an extra time for quality assurance for definite (but not all) goods categories.
II. As for the timing, our aim is to build an optimal working business process allowing to minimize time from the moment of bringing a good to export point and up to good delivery directly to a buyer. Possibly, for most complicated cases it will take a week more maximum for a delivery, but if we compare this with a situation when buyers suffer from complicated process of goods return or refund using other well-known international platforms - we will see that in our case there will be much more profit for all interacting sides. Yes, this makes a delivery time slightly longer but these time expenses will be fully recouped.
III. We have a lot of info regarding solutions uniqueness and suffisient number of buyers engagement in our Whitepaper. To sum up, at the moment this is what our working team aims to. There is reason to believe we will succeed: the service we offer will be a solution of all the problems both sellers and buyers have, particularly in case of several certain world's regions. Both many buyers and sellers are "out of the market" now, though in fact this is a large niche which is not occupied. Therefore, this problem needs to be solved, and what we are creating is a solution.
IV. Every entrepreneur will estimate their expenses justification and guarantees by themselves. This is the market, and everybody choose, compare, estimate risks, expenses and potential income by themselves. In case we will succed in creating a resolve which allows to involve uncovered buyers and sellers segments in global market, they will feel the profit immediately. As result, Storiqa won't have to spend lots of money for marketing, promotions and so on. Most effective marketing points are "word of mouth", references and recommendations, happy cliens and satisfied sellers. This is precisely our goal.
V. Goods check points will be located not only in Russia, but all over the world. We will try to create most optimal process which will not have a negative influence on price and delivery time frame from the one side, and service quality not to suffer with minimizing goods return - from the other one, because eventually this will lead to wasting time and money, as well as losing clients.
