Pflugerville, TX, September 09, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Beacon's Glow Collectibles, an online gift and collectibles retail store specializing in dolls, teddy bears, and collectible figurines (http://www.beaconsglow.com/), is now offering their customers the ability to "Name Their Price" on high-ticket items.
This new feature is from an application named PriceWaiter and has the potential for keeping price-sensitive shoppers engaged. Through research, it has been determined that the largest element of purchasing higher-priced items is the ability to comparison shop which will ultimately lead to the best price for the item.
PriceWaiter, a hosted price-negotiation application. allows Beacon's Glow Collectibles to present a "Name Your Price" button on specific product buy pages that meet a certain criteria. This button can only be seen on some product pages, and not on all product pages. (PriceWaiter is the same concept as the "Name Your Price" option seen on a very popular travel site).
When a potential customer sees the "Name Your Price" button, they can click the button to enter a price and enter their email address. In a short period of time during normal business hours, they will receive an email that either: accepts, offers a counter offer, or rejects their offer. If an offer is immediately accepted, the customer can then click a link from the email to complete their purchase by accessing the PayPal website. This website will allow the customer to pay with either a credit card or PayPal.
Shoppers will get only one chance to "Name Your Price". Reasonable offers have a much higher chance of being accepted (1-10% off of the item). PriceWaiter CEO Andrew Scarbrough has stated that "the average discount offered through the feature is 8% across all companies that offer it."
The "Name Your Price" option is a win-win situation for both customer and retailer. It allows a customer the opportunity to get the best price on a high-ticket item and ultimately can lead to a higher volume of orders for retailers.
