At Back Market, we want to be as transparent as possible. 📣 Like a teenager at a slumber party, we want to tell you everything (well, maybe not everything—our top-secret crush is still under wraps 🤐 —but you catch our drift). It's important to us that you understand what we're all about and where the prices listed on our website come from. 🗣️
The crossed-out price, which lets you compare the price of your product with the new product price, is provided by the seller. The crossed-out price either corresponds to the manufacturer's suggested new price of the product or to the average new price found at various distributors online. This is why reference prices can vary from one site to another, or from one seller to another.
As it goes with the refurbished product market, the products sold on our website are often no longer available for sale as new via other e-sellers, making it complicated for the seller to give us a reference price. In this case, the seller can provide the price they usually charge for a similar product.
Don't worry, we work hard with our sellers to get the fairest, most accurate crossed-out prices possible that match what's out there on the market. 📈 True story! 🤟
