Cool Votive Pricing

I noticed in the new catalog they list votives as $3.00. Won't that conflict with us ordering? (I sell only in stock votives as singles) Otherwise they would need to order a box. Boxes are not shown.
??????? Any suggestions?

Just let them know that you need a minimum qty in order to place the order or let them order from your website or you can encourage them to buy more buy offering a discount on bigger quantities like 2 for $5, 3 for $7, etc. You can always use votives as a marketing tool or giveaways/door prizes at shows or festivals and things like that

Arrow votive pricing

I tell my customers that $3 is for singles I have in-stock...

Then I sell them for...

$2.50 ea for 3 same scent (which covers the cost of a box of 6)
$2.25 ea for 6 same scent (which covers the cost of a box for 6 or 12)
$2.00 ea for 12 same scent (which of course covers the cost!)

When I tell people that our votives are a jumbo 2.5 oz (most votives like Y-brand are only 1.75 oz) and that ours burn 15-20 hours they are floored! Showing people the value of our products, gives their money more 'value' and they realize they are not spending more, they are actually saving money by getting a higher quality, longer lasting product. Hence more BURN for their buck!

I have convered many 'dollar store' candle burners to Mia Bella with some simple education. Yes. you can get a votive for a buck at the dollar store BUT it will burn 3 hours. So they'd need 6, $1 votives to get the same flame time as ONE $3 Mia Bella votive! So spend $6 with Mia Bella and get 40 hours of candle light and fragrance WOOT!

I know you did not ask about all that above, LOL, I just get so excited I love to share this business and ideas!

I just LOVE our fantastical candles!
