We are rolling out a beta feature called Find the Best Place to Buy Products and we want your help.
We want to make sure that we are offering the best price for most products that are available on Backpack. And for the products, we can't offer the best price (because of our model or other operational/business constraints), we want to point you to where you can find that best price.
So for example, if there's a laptop that we know Ryan's Computer (good place, we are a fan!) from IDB Bhaban is offering the best pricing and we can't give you anything better, we want to be able to inform you to buy from Ryan's Computer and not us.
Why in the world would we want people to buy from others instead of us? Because we know that if we want to build a long-term world-class business, the relationship with our customers needs to be rooted in trust and reliability. And keeping users best interest in mind and not thinking short-term is the only way to build trust and a long-term business.
What will we do after you submit the information? We'll verify the info and if we see what you say is accurate, we'll remove the Buy Now button and add a note informing where from customers should buy this. If we get sufficient amount of data, it should take us 2-4 weeks to verify and update the information.
