Default yay for large orders!!

I have a customer that just ordered 12 bows. 6 different styles 2 of each. My question is do you discount the bows when a customer places a larger order? I did 2fers for her but I still kinda feel guilty about the total. Should I just charge her the total amount then throw in some free clippies or flower clippies for ordering so much?

I noticed pricing advice is slim but any advice is appreciated! thanks!

I used to worry about that too. But now I give myself a little pep talk, "She knew the prices of the bows when she ordered them. I already gave her a "2-for" deal. She is expecting to pay ______". Lol, I don't know if that helps, but that's what I remind myself.

yes that does help alot!! my mom keeps telling me something like that too. lol I guess Im traumatized because when I first decided to start selling the bows I got a large order, made them quickly then the customer never returned to pick them up & pay.

her total comes out to about $4/bow but i'm still worried she wont realize that these are custom bows & not ones that can be purchased at walmart. thanks for the pep talk

Whenever I would do a custom order especially big ones (*over $100) I would throw in a pair of clippies or an embellished clippie on my "We appreciate your business." -Card. Kind of an incentive for repeat business. But you don't have to...

If she's happy with the price, I'd say don't give her any more discount. Definately throw in a couple freebie "samples" (which will probably lead to more orders)

If you are concerned about follow through on her part, you can give her a little % discount for paying up front... I don't know, just an idea.

for large orders!

I agree with Tess9737, she knew the price and you are giving 2fers, if she didn't agree with the total she wouldn't have ordered so many...give your self a pat on the back and feel good about the order and deal you are giving her! Don't discount yourself or your hard work!

I always give them a price up front and then tell them for me to start work it's 50% down, never had a problem, every once in awhile I may throw in a free bow if they have a little girl, but this is a business, I don't give too big of discounts.

Its hard! I'm always second guessing myself, is this too much, do these look good enough, will they sell? My prices are already super low, but I'm always feeling guilty. But like several said, she already knew your prices upfront.

The grocery store never feels guilty about your large orders

I agree, through something small in and a card
