3.12 Where do you get the original prices of products?
Unless otherwise noted, the strike-through price displayed on our Web site is based on the suggested retail price for the product, provided to VIPme by the manufacturer or vendor. Certain products on our site are similar - but not identical - to products sold through other retailers. In this case, the strike-through price represents the estimated regular retail value of a comparable item of similar quality offered elsewhere. Because we sell our products to the United States and United Kingdom, the strike-through price may or may not represent the prevailing price at any particular time or in every location, and we make no promise on the reliability or accuracy of any such information. For international sales, the strike-through price represents the retail price suggested to VIPme by the manufacturer or vendor, based on what such items would be sold for in the US/UK market, plus exchange rate conversion and, if applicable, an adjustment for additional international surcharges that cover items such as taxes, duties, and shipping. VIPme will always endeavor to offer you products of best quality and reasonable price.
