Daz Vendors - listen closely
Daz, listen closely, because not listening is costing you (literally).
I spend more money elsewhere, because certain other sites do a much better job of communicating and managing sales.
Monday, I saw some items on sale here, put them in my cart, and didn't think to look at the sale closing date. After all whoever heard of a sale that ends on Monday? I naturally assumed - like any normal person - that if it was on sale on Monday, it would have to be on sale Tuesday as well. Did your website say that somewhere? Maybe. Was it in email? Quite possibly. But none of that matters. As a business, you need to conduct yourself in a way that appeals to your customers. There is enormous research behind sales and consumer spending psychology, and retail stores follow certain established sales promotion cycles for a reason.
Anyway, back to my story, lo and behold, come Tuesday when I logged in to complete my purchase, the sale was off.
Now Daz won't see my money. And it isn't just this sale. You guys do this kind of thing all the time, and I end up not spending money with you because my utter frustration.
You need some consistency to your sales cycle, and I'd suggest you start by looking at what retail does because there is enormous research behind their methodology. I would love to see Daz normalize its special promotions cycles a bit so your regular customers have some kind of idea what to expect. I will probably spend more money with you once you do, because I won't feel like I'm playing some kind of shell game about when the sale ends.
I hope that I did not come across harshly. I do not mean to. I am just frustrated to have had this happen to me several times now and it makes me want to shop elsewhere. Thanks for listening.
