Should I buy product in bags or bulk?
We sell products in both bags and bulk.
Many businesses do promotions on multiple bag buys, and sometimes this can be a good deal on bag rates, but is it really a good deal compared with purchasing in bulk?
A common promo you see is:
4 Bags (generally 40L bags) of compost for $30 ($7.50 per bag)
Now let's compare this to puchasing in bulk.
1m3 of Compost in 40L bags = 25 bags @ $7.50 per bag = $187.50m3 in bags
1m3 of our Daltons Compost = $99m3 in bulk
(SAVE $88.50 BUYING IN BULK)
3 bags of Garden Mix for $30
1m3 of Garden Mix in 40L bags = 25 bags @ $10 per bag = $250m3 in bags
1m3 of our Daltons Garden Mix = $110m3 in bulk
(SAVE $140 BUYING IN BULK)
So when should I Buy in Bags?
Bags are a convenient way of purchasing our products.
