When I was in retail 30 years ago, I bought some really good paneling at a very good price. I bought Paneling that had a retail of $12 for $6 and thought I could have a sale promotion at $8. No buyers, the supplier said to raise the price, and I did, as I was pissed. I went to 14.95 and sold out in less than a week.

If a buyer "thinks" that they're getting a deal then that's what they're getting.

If a deal can be made to look like an art then buyers will see the deal as a refinement. Like an accomplishment.

Payless doesn't sell sensible shoes, they sell cheap Chinese crap.

With the right marketing and packaging you could definitely sell actual human excrement to very rich people at very high profit.

A couple of notes...

When I was little, our dog had puppies. No one wanted any when our front yard sign said FREE puppies. When Dad made a new sign that said puppies $5 each, they went within a day or two.


In the 80s I heard a story about Rolls Royce needing to slow down the number of orders for new cars in order to catch up with demand... so they temporarily doubled the price. But instead of slowing demand, orders increased instead.
