Not work safe

what is it with these stupid fucking asian stores and not adding gst?!?

if they think they will attract more customers because theire prices appear lower they are wrong, because i for one will not waste my time calculating gst onto every fucking item i wish i know the price of, ill go somewhere else.

it also makes them come across very unprofessional and shabby

Also alot of 'ONLINE' stores because they are online they don't just sell to New Zealanders.

I really like finding a store that advertises prices including GST. Prices including freight is even better. Just a little bit of convenience

well id just like to say you would probably be missing out on potential customers .. as I know myself and other people would simply bust over to the next site.

you dont ever see anyone complaining about people with inclusive prices do you.

businesses revolve around customers. heh where did you learn to run a business?

Or you could just...

Design a site so that the customer gets to choose whether they see GST inclusive or exclusive prices.

Ascent is in the process of updating website etc. That will bring a few nice changes for everyone to use.

So you'd go to a site which listed GST even tho thier prices are alot higher than one that doesn't list GST just because you can't add?

Good lord.

heh I didnt say that ... I think its fairly obvious if theres a major difference in prices all you need is a quick scan im talking about the serious scrooge price comparison :P

I can add gst in my head in a matter of seconds .. just call me lazy convenience is just more important to me

not because we cant add, but because we dont/shouldnt have to!. cybernation and ascent have gst and non gst inclusive prices, which i think is a good idea.

gst or not most of these shops have simaliar prices, so im going to give my money to one that puts itself across the best ie. one that doesnt make me calculate gst.

How do you figure out that companies listing GST inclusive prices are more expensive ?

People get charged GST anyway, so unless you are a company which can claim GST back, it is pointless to look at GST exclusive prices.

People should also note charges for freight on these sites. Not every site has a *clear indication* of frieght charges stated.

Ok, back to work for me...

I guess adding must be hard for you Logik.

If you hate those "fucking asian" sites so much, don't visit, simple.

Some sites don't even state whether prices are inc or exc GST..... If it's not at the top or bottom of the page, or at the beginning of the store section, I tend to sod off elsewhere. It's ILLEGAL to not state whether prices include GST or not. If they can't comply with something that simple, they're not gonna be around in 6 months when I need a warranty replacement.

Hey man, dont make be out to be some sort of racist. I like asians : D, it's just that they never seem to add gst in thier prices, I know that death pointed out that they sell to other countries too, but they could at least have something to indicate gst prices.

your missing the fucking point anyway, I know adding is easy, so why cant the shop do it?

Given the choice to browse a site WITH gst and freight, or to browse a site that makes me divide by 100 and * by 12.5 ill opt for the former. I thought that would be fairly obvious to any buisness :/.

why are we arguing about this anyway?

It's okay Logik I don't like those asian sites that don't add GST neither, I simply don't visit them.

ie: when I go into e-one personally, I ask for a price, i'll let him babble on about the price, then I will just say "What's that with GST?"



otherwise, it's not hard to add GST... x 1.125

Ummm... no, its not ILLEGAL.
If its not stated then its INCLUDED. If they try to say that "sorry Sir, we've got to add 12.5% to that final price", then you can go CGA on their ass.
