Anna Salyx Posted January 1, 2020 Share Posted January 1, 2020 One trend that seems to come and go, and i wish would mostly go, is the idea of selling "sets" as separates. That is, tops and bottoms that logically go together being sold as separate items and thinly masking a (sometimes) significant mark up. I do get it that some people like to mix and match and in general I'm on board with that, but at the same time I like to see merchants maybe offering single logical sets at a cost point somewhere in the middle of buying the two (or more items) separately. then if I want to maybe do a bit of mixing, I can by added pieces at their normal separate price points. What really drove this post though was recently I saw a set at an event. It's a very cute outfit that consists of a shirt collar, top, skirt, and thong and each item was sold separately. The total cost to get a 'single' outfit was just shy of $L900. As a set I'd expect to pay maybe around 300 to 500 lindens (based on pricing on similar sets sold as sets) and that's a reasonable pricing based on the current market. I'd have bought it if there was a color set grouping option in that price range but I (personally) couldn't justify 900 for single color pack so I reluctantly passed it by. I'm not saying to creators to never split items in a set up. I agree in principle that it is a good way to generate extra sales for those who like to mix/match, I just want to spark some conversation on the idea of also having logical color sets available as well at a modest middle price point. Anyways, that's all I got on this. I tend to stick with designers who offer up sets more than separates, but if the pricing on the separates is reasonable I have no problem making my own sets, it just seems that some designers are using it as a way to double (or more) their income on some items. and now I'm starting to repeating myself, lol, so I'll end it here. Happy New Year everyone. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
