Daraz’s statement on Pricing
Since few weeks and last year also we saw different news regarding differential pricing and high pricing of products in Daraz’s site. Now the company has made things clear with its new official statement. On the topic of differential pricing, the company says that it is due to the sellers. Daraz is a marketplace with various sellers and they put the pricing. It all depends on the stores so we recommend you to check prices at different places and also see the seller rating.
In order to get the best products from a reputed store, purchase from Daraz Mall. There, companies sell at official MRP and charge reasonably. Customers can also easily return goods within 14 days if any problem arises. Daraz also explains about the elevated price tag and heavy discount on their statement. It says that as pricing is controlled by sellers, the offer is also controlled by them. But once the discount percentage is fixed with Daraz, they can’t change the price and it is not allowed. However, the retailers can hike it very before and play with customers. Therefore buy from reputed sellers and stores with good ratings.
