Amazon Prime Day is here but…..
Did you know that you’re not always getting the bargain you think you’re getting?
Amazon Prime Day has become a highly anticipated event for online shoppers, offering exclusive deals and discounts on a wide range of products. While Amazon’s reputation and convenience are undeniable, there are several compelling reasons why buying directly from a retailer’s website can often be a better option during Prime Day.
Authenticity and Product Assurance
When buying from a retailer’s website, you can have greater confidence in the authenticity and quality of the products you purchase. Some third-party sellers on Amazon have been known to sell counterfeit or inferior goods, which can lead to disappointment and potential safety risks. By purchasing directly from the retailer, you eliminate the uncertainty and can trust that you are getting genuine products. At Bus Monkeys we only sell authentic products from some of the biggest brands in the campervan accessory market such as Outdoor Revolution, Vango, RIB, and more. When you buy on Amazon most people don’t even know where their product is coming from. Is it coming from Amazon themselves or is it coming from a 3rd party seller? Is it in your local Amazon warehouse or making a time-consuming trip from abroad? When you buy directly through a retailer’s own website you can be assured that you know exactly where your latest campervan gadget is coming from and there is someone to contact directly should you need to.
Personalized Customer Service
Retailers take pride in providing exceptional customer service. When you buy from their website, you gain access to their dedicated support team, who can assist you with any queries or concerns you may have. Unlike Amazon, where customer service can sometimes be impersonal and difficult to reach, retailers will prioritize building strong relationships with their customers, ensuring a more personalized shopping experience. At Bus Monkeys we are always just a call or email away should you need advice before making a purchase. In the unlikely event that you have a problem post transaction then we will work quickly and politely to resolve the issue without the need for you to be sending messages back and forth through a 3rd party retailer.
Brand Loyalty and Support
By purchasing directly from a retailer’s website, you can demonstrate your support and loyalty to a specific brand. Many retailers invest considerable effort into creating unique products and experiences. When you buy from their website, you contribute directly to their growth and success, encouraging them to continue providing innovative products and excellent customer service. Since our early days importing and restoring Aircooled VW Buses, we have been constantly evolving and improving our business model. Now that we have evolved to service the owners of modern campervans and campervan conversions we have continued to build relationships with both customers and suppliers. So if you’re looking for a campervan sun canopy or the latest air awning we go the extra mile to ensure that our loyal customers are getting only the best products from the best brands.
Our prices are always cheaper on our website
While Amazon Prime Day offers attractive deals, retailers also run their promotions during this period to compete for customers’ attention. These promotions may include exclusive discounts, bundled offers, or loyalty rewards that are only available on the retailer’s website. By exploring different websites, you might discover hidden gems and additional benefits beyond what Amazon has to offer. At Bus Monkeys, our prices are always cheaper on our website, all year round. That means it’s better than Amazon Prime Day, Every Day! Amazon charges huge fees to sell on their platform. When we sell through our own website we do not have those fees so we can always sell our range of products cheaper here than we can on Amazon or eBay
Supporting Local Businesses
While Amazon has undoubtedly revolutionized the way we shop, it’s important to remember the value of supporting local businesses. By purchasing directly from a retailer’s website, especially smaller independent ones, you contribute to the local economy and help sustain their growth. This support can be vital for local job creation, community development, and fostering entrepreneurship. Would you rather be fueling the super-yacht of one of the world’s richest people or helping a small business owner pay for his daughter’s football coaching?
Enhanced Product Selection
While Amazon offers an extensive range of products, it may not always have the specific item or variant you are looking for. Retailers often have more control over their inventory, offering a curated selection that aligns with their brand identity. By buying directly from their website, you can access a broader range of unique products, limited editions, or customized options that may not be available on Amazon. At Bus Monkeys we only ever have a small selection of our campervan products available through our Amazon Store. Often the fees associated with selling on marketplaces such as Amazon or eBay make the sale unprofitable, even if we hike the price.
So if it’s a new drive-away awning you’re after or a RIB Altair bed for your VW Transporter Campervan, you’ll always be able to purchase from a larger range of campervan accessories and campervan conversion parts at a cheaper price when you buy directly from our Bus Monkeys Website.
