YOOX is not just a selection of clothing and accessories from previous collections, but an extraordinary assortment that ranges from exclusive products, vintage collectibles, special editions, and an original selection of design and books. The YOOX price for these items is determined on an individual basis and may be reduced in the event of various promotions." I have found many items taht on Yoox that are only 10-20 perecent off retail pricing, NOT half of retail as Yoox claim above. I emailed them to complain about an item on 1 occasionÃ§ so they changed the pricing and the item was sold quickly to someone else. i do not understand how they can claim they are offering items at half the designers original suggeted price - i do not think this is true for MANY items on their store
It totally depends, because not only do they get closeouts from stores/boutiques, but they also act as the "outlet" directly for certain brands. Those brands sometimes stipulate the prices. BUT, as you said, some of their items (especially for very "hot" or popular brands) are not half off. And, you also have to keep in mind that in some cases they may not even KNOW what the "original" price even was, given that many of the items don't have tags (though are new.) As such, I'd say that they do the best they can, with the info they have. I mean, they screw up sometimes, but overall I think it works. In short: Yoox isn't a "scam." It's wonderful for what it is and I've been happy with the dozens and dozens of orders I've placed with them, and when I wasn't it was very easy to return.
