Design the price
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
Design the price encourages on one hand the Designers to develop their creations in an eco-friendlier way and on another hand encourage the buyers to purchase eco-friendly products. The beneficial effects are manifold: - Designers are encouraging to develop in an eco-friendlier way // How? A reward system could encourage designers to develop in this way. E.g. the online Shop could have a not for free entrance and the more the creations are eco-friendly, the less he would pay for it. - Designers who do not have any market knowledge yet may test the acceptance of their creations by placing them on the online Shop // How? The system is based on the Pay what you want concept: the prices are purposed by the buyers, so the designers discover how much the buyers are ready to invest for their creations. - Buyers benefit transparency about how are the creations be developed // How? The buyers are informed through the labels about the quality of the creations and can in this way consume in all knowledge of causes. - Buyers are not subjected to price discrimination // How? The system is based on the Pay what you want concept: the prices are purposed by the buyers. So the buyers purpose an amount which therere willing to invest. - Buyers are encouraging to consume in an eco-friendlier way // How? A commission will be taken on each transaction. A part of the commission will be injected for humanitarian associations. So, buying on Design the price allows a financial contribution to non-for-profit organizations.
