Explanatory note on the price offer of 12 cartons:
 
 
 
1.  The price offered is F.O.B-India.  Therefore, by the time the merchandise will arrive to the destination, transportation, logistics and customs procedure costs will add up to this cost.   The primary aim of this price offer is to enable stores or a group of stores to buy smaller quantities, directly from us, if their market does not have an Incensum distributor.
 
 
 
However, if a store or group of stores would want to purchase this quantity directly from us, in a market where there IS a distributor, we WILL re-direct that order to the nearest distributor.
 
 
 
This will help the stores take immediate delivery, rather than wait for production and shipment from India.  Just as in the case of direct purchase from India, stores may be paying 100% advance, enabling the importer to have a sound markup for large volume sale at cash.  Distributors and stores can as well  come to their own price vs credit/payment  terms, thus enabling more trading options as oppsed to purchasing directly from us, which has just one option:  Advance payment, combined with lead time, production time and shipping time.
 
 
 
2. Our declared policy of trading is to enable our trading partners to maximise their profits and speed up their cash flow. 
 
It is in our interest that always fresh merchandise gets to the market, and existing stocks are sold out as fast as possible.
 
This is another reason that we WILL re-direct  small orders to the nearest reseller/distributor/importer.   
 
We may as well re-direct larger orders from other importers to the nearest importer/ distributor, if we have a long order position.
 
 
 
This method is better for:
 
(a) Stores(immediate delivery); (b) Distributors(high volume order at cash purchase);
 
(c) Consumers (fresher produce) and (d) also for us(customer satisfaction, transparent business).
 
 
 
3.  Incensum is among the few incense businesses in the world with a  COMPLETELY   OPEN   PRICING   POLICY. 
 
All prices are displayed openly and is freely accesible for all visitors of this site.  Anybody with a simple calculator can easily compute the profits Incensum offers to its trading partners, and we are the least bit ashamed of it. 
 
As stated many times in this site, one of the the ideas behind Project Incensum is to generate increased wealth for ourselves, our trading partners and our employees. 
 
 
 
Incensum pricing policy thus becomes completely transparent compared to the pricing policy of any other incense business.
