Why do we have to pay so much more for nappies?

Postby mamavic » Mon Dec 07, 2009 7:27 pm

Every time I look at nappy reviews online I can't help but notice that cloth nappies are way cheaper in the US than the UK. I understand that a lot are made there and there are shipping costs etc, but sometimes they are almost double the price here! Why?

I agree! Alll my stuff is US and with the dollar looks quite cheap but with shipping and customs it pushes the price up to almost equal in £££. So a $5 product can cost £5 in UK when it should cost £3. Having stuff made in the UK can also be expensive - we are looking into a UK factory for the wet bags at the moment - I am hopeful that we will find one that can manufacture at a decent price and match the quality.

I get hit by customs every time - nothing ever gets past them. Stuff from china seems to get in no problem :-?
