J.FitzPatrick MTO Program Price Rise Jan. 1st 2017
Two years ago, we launched our MTO program on a very quiet note, which meant that in reality we never sent out a newsletter but accepted orders for those that wrote to us enquiring. We started out with a very low price to not only entice people to give it a try but also because we like to give as fair price as possible. The problem is that we were charging one price but shoes and boots get charged to us at different prices and we therefore started loosing money on certain boots that were quite expensive, not to mention the drastic drop in the British Pound. Therefore, like all things inevitable, it has become time for the price to rise on our MTO program which will happen on January 1st, 2017.
Previously we charged all shoes at £90 upcharge per pair (ex VAT £75). Now, we have to separate the categories into two:
- All shoes (oxfords, derbies), loafers and monkstraps now charged at £100 per pair on top (ex VAT £83.33).
- All boots now charged at £125 per pair (ex VAT £104.17)
- All shoes over size UK12 charged (currently and in the future) at £150 per pair for excess leather charge (ex VAT £125)
In reality it is not a huge change, especially for shoes, and we are still maintaining a percentage of our MTO fee only being between 30%-33% the cost of the shoe where some (read many) companies charge 50%.
As you can see in this post, from just a small selection of what we have created, you are able to get an idea of what we can do. In the screenshots, you will see our MTO section of our website which hopefully lays out quite thoroughly what your options are. However any other questions can always be emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Therefore, now is your chance to snap up any MTO’s you might have been pondering with us, before the New Year and the price increase takes effect.
Please do not hesitate to email us for any further questions.
I wish you all a great weekend
