Pricing Comparison for Mobile Phones
Please download the attached file and complete the table and the questions in Microsoft Word. Please note the requirement is to compare 3 different products by three different manufacturers which are reasonable substitutes for each other. The pricing for all three should be obtained from the same source, not three different distribution sources. The rationale for this requirement is that different distributors have different pricing approaches for products they resell which make it harder to compare product pricing. Costco and Bet Buy sell the same products by the same manufacturer but have different indirect costs and supply chain pricing approaches. Although this cannot be totally eliminated as different manufacturers can have different deals with different distributors, offering one a better wholesale price than another, it does help to eliminate some of the differences in price which are related not to the product but who is selling it which complicates the comparison.
