Thread: Why in Bangladesh a 230 dollar card sold in 391 dollar

    Default Why in Bangladesh a 230 dollar card sold in 391 dollar

    I was going through rx 480 asus strix whose amazon price is now around 230 but in Bangladesh market its sold for 31,000 tk or nearly 391 dollar .Why this kind of price when Bagnladesh govt don't take any extra tariff on computer product .We are the lowest tax country when it comes to computer product .So why we will have to pay nearly 75% more than the original price .Its like these computer companies are looting us .

    Well we tackled that problem for a long time, don't bother. I don't think the cost is mainly cause of taxes, it has to do with profit and demand. Look at GPUs in elsewhere, India's prices are ridiculous compared to ours. Also we're the lowest tax country? get real we're paying way more money for larger monitors than usually for certain tariffs per inch limit. America sells GPUs like water, basically so they throw in 230 USD deals every now and then. Stop comparing it to Bangladesh and I hope what I said closes every argument to pointless discussions

    There's no point in comparing with US prices, that's the best country for all consumer electronics. Compare it to the UK and you'll see it's not as much higher. That GPU is about $40 more compared to the UK price.

    This is also the same in all developing countries.

    about uk prices... uk prices are now unstable because of brexit... but if you compare prices 1 or 2 years ago prices would be like r9 390x 330$ usa and ~300pounts gbp so like ~15~20% more than usa prices for most gpus.

    but yes other countries pay high price for gpus too... like australia... because they hav higher min wages.

    india now a days have lower gpu prices yes.. but their gpu prices used to be very very high.... higher than even bd prices. i think their prices got reduced in last 1 year

    I actually don't know why bd prices are that high... they don't have VATs as far as i have read the documents. recently the prices hav gotten even higher. they used to be below 100tk per dollar now they are like 110-115tk per dollar... i dont know whats happening... are there hidden taxes? is there any 'ghost' taking money? or simply just profit making monopolies?

    No, UK prices have been 1:1 to USD prices long before Brexit. Difference was UK prices were inclusive of all taxes unlike US prices where taxes vary by state.

    On top of that, the GPU market is not as big in BD, so it is understandable why they would be priced higher.

    I think this is one of the leading causes of such exorbitant prices of electronics in Bangladesh

    The seller can ask whatever price they want and the customers are forced to follow that. During monitoring and inspection, government officials are always subjected to bribery so there is really nothing we the consumers, can do.

    I don't think that's how capitalism works. Capitalism is all about competition. Don't like this price, buy from another one. Another one selling at same price, maybe they formed a syndicate. Ok, now investigate this syndicate. That's how it works. Nobody monitors profit margins, you can't tell somebody to what they should charge.

    The logic is quite simple. USA is a much much much much much bigger market than BD. If you could sell the same amount of cards in BD, as much as USA, then price would have been same. The different brands operate officially in USA. In BD however, the number of products sold and bought is nothing, only a small grain compared to 1st world countries. As a result, the importers cannot place large enough orders to get a large enough discount. I don't think the percentage of amount of profit a BD importer makes is more than the percentage of profit MicroCenter, Fry's, etc makes. In fact, I think they have much higher profit percentage in USA, that's why they can give frequent discounts, they simply can buy large enough inventory to order a ship container load of the same GPU when BD can order only a carton of the same stuff.

    well considering we have almost equal price in cpu like core i7 core i5 or on almost every other high end computer equipment ,so 75% price increase in Gpu doesn't make sense ,these things come in containers & container price is handled by other companies so almost similar price for every product ,weight ammount doesn't matter .In no alternative world one have to raise price 75% to make profit considering computer components are very low taxed in bangladesh .I think problem is these brands are bought by one or two company in Bangladesh those dealers sell the components to other shops .As its politically controlled so shops can't reduce the price as they want or buy another way .

    Again, it mostly has to do with economies of scale. The amount of CPU, MoBo, RAM, HDD or other components sold in Bangladesh is much much much higher than those of high end GPUs (and peripherals). Because of the difference of the volume of sale, the importers can get better prices on other components and get a better total profit.

    Think of it like this, for an average importer the number of CPUs sold per week would exceed say a 1000, at the same time, the number of high end GPU sold would only be around 50-100 at max! The numbers are pure assumptions but u get the idea. So, in order to earn the same amount of money from both product the margin has to higher on the niche products.

    Now, I'm not saying that the market volume is the ONLY reason for this high price, the general "haraminess" of the importers also play a role here IMO but the market volume is the major reason of GPUs having such high prices.

    Just my 2 cents guys!

    Think of it like this, for an average importer the number of CPUs sold per week would exceed say a 1000, at the same time, the number of high end GPU sold would only be around 50-100 at max! The numbers are pure assumptions but u get the idea. So, in order to earn the same amount of money from both product the margin has to higher on the niche products.

    Now, I'm not saying that the market volume is the ONLY reason for this high price, the general "haraminess" of the importers also play a role here IMO but the market volume is the major reason of GPUs having such high prices.

    Just my 2 cents guys!
    ^^^ in other words "low volume high margin(profit) of enthusiast parts e.g. gaming peripherals, GPUs, SSDs, gaming cases, power supply etc.) vs high volume low margin of essential products e.g. CPU, ram, hdd etc.

    It was a trend in old days when few company was importers & but nowadays there are thousands of importers but then again If you ask price 10 time more than original price then ofcourse there will be low volume due to low demand .that is why 1st thing people do nowadays to actually open a market for new product is to sell them at reasonable price so that many can have the taste of the product ,this happens in open market where any one can import anything .Even 100k Tv ,Monitors have Decent pricing compare to Int Price .So don't think those 100k monitor buyers numbers are more than Gpu buyers.Look at the price of other peripherals ,gaming 19k motherboard all are priced near to int price .I think GPU market maybe controlled by some political groups

    In Bangladesh

    There is less sells so the price is higher.

    But the price is higher so the sells are less.

    You get what I'm sayin ?

    You are comparing an essential component to a non-essential component. CPU / Mainboards are something that a computer cannot run without. You would be surprised, how many offices have a Core i7 CPU based PCs but no GPU. There are few things that are actually cheaper in BD, like some gaming hardwares cost 50% less than international price. But then again, those are 2 or 3 year old models. Infact those are sent to BD and other poor nations, only because they won't sell in big nations. As for GPUs, the newer they are the pricier they are. And also we tend to think warranty is something that is free. But having worked in manufacturing, I know for a fact that warranty is indeed not free. Even in US, you have to pay extra for warranty for 2 or 3 years, whereas 1 year is actually included in your price. This being said, I do agree there is artificial inflation by the importers, because of us. Most people in the market are ready to throw their money at a gaming rig. if you want experience visit OSGS couple of times a week.
