Multi-channel Purchasing Approach

1. Acrylic Products Store

There are many stores specializing in selling Acrylic products in some industrial cities【 Cast Acrylic Sheets Near Me】.They usually have Acrylic Sheets of various specifications and colors for you to choose from. These stores are often located in city centers or business districts, making it easy for customers to come and shop. You can go to these stores, choose suitable acrylic sheets directly, and get professional advice and services from sales staff.

However, there are many disadvantages to purchasing these products in stores. Because store maintenance and operation costs such as store rentals and service operations staff are very high, these cost stores will sell Acrylic products at very high prices, thereby transferring the cost losses to consumers. In addition to the operating costs of the store, the transportation cost of the goods is also a considerable expense.

If you are using it for yourself and only need a small amount, you can buy it from here. Therefore, the author recommends that if it is not necessary and urgent, try not to go to Acrylic products stores in the city.


2. Industrial Materials Market

Some cities also have markets or stores that specialize in selling industrial materials. They offer a variety of building materials, decorative materials, and craft materials, including Acrylic sheets. In these markets, you can find a wider variety and specifications of Acrylic sheets, which may vary in terms of price and quality.

Consumers or buyers need to ask the merchants, and they will usually tell you the quality and characteristics of Acrylic sheets, as well as which occasions they are suitable for. However, in this fragmented material market, consumers or buyers need to carefully judge whether these sources of goods are old or of good or bad quality, or whether the raw materials use a large amount of recycled materials, production place, manufacturer, brand, etc. This requires shopping around and takes a lot of time.

In addition, the merchant’s service attitude, professional skills, product knowledge and proficiency will also affect consumers’ judgment of the characteristics of Plexiglass sheets.


3. Online Shopping Platform

If you want to buy Acrylic sheets more conveniently and quickly, you can choose to buy them on an online shopping platform. Many e-commerce platforms have dedicated sellers selling Acrylic sheets, where you can browse Acrylic sheets of various brands, specificatons and prices, and place an order directly. After purchase, the clear cast Acrylic sheets will usually be delivered to your designated address via express or logistics.

The author will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of Amazon, Independent Station, Temu, Shein, Tiktok, Shopee, AliExpress and other platforms.


Ⓐ Amazon

The most valuable platform is also the platform with the highest ceiling.

First of all, Amazon, as one of the world’s largest e-commerce platforms, has a large user base and a powerful logistics system, which can help sellers quickly expand their sales scale. In addition, Amazon’s search engine technology is also very mature, which can help sellers’ products be found more easily by consumers.

However, the fees of the platform are relatively high, including sales commissions, storage fees, advertising fees, etc. Therefore, if the product is differentiated and the product is really going to be exported overseas, Amazon is a platform that cannot be bypassed. However, consumers are overwhelmed with differentiated products, which requires a lot of time to sort through.

Ⓑ Independent station

Compared with Amazon, independent websites pay more attention to sellers’ brand building and user experience.

On the independent website, sellers can directly trade with consumers, eliminating the commission of the platform, thereby increasing sales profits.

However, the seller’s publicity costs are relatively high, and the seller needs to have certain marketing experience and capabilities. The maintenance and management of independent websites also need to be completed by the sellers themselves, which requires more time and energy. Such economic and time costs will also invisibly increase the price of the product.

Ⓒ Emerging e-commerce platforms such as Temu, Shein, and Tiktok

These three platforms are very interesting. They are all promoting the “full promotion model” this year. 

The full promotion model looks good: as long as you are responsible for delivering products to the warehouse, you don’t have to worry about other operations, customer service, and after-sales. But the price is: extremely low profit margins. But the quality of its products also varies.

Ⓓ Shopee, AliExpress and other platforms

Shopee and AliExpress are relatively niche platforms compared to mainstream Amazon and independent websites. For such small platforms, if it is early stage, they can quickly occupy the market by distributing goods, but in the later stage, they will inevitably transform into a refined store or even a boutique model. 

The reason is very simple. If you shop, I will shop too, and the market will easily become homogeneous. Profits have always come from differentiation, but differentiation requires time and energy. The homogeneity of products brings difficulty to consumers in making choices.
