Q. What is sliding scale pricing?
A. You will notice that some of our products are offered at “Sliding Scale pricing.” This is a way of making our products available to shoppers at all income levels. Those who have more pay more, those who have less pay less:
Subsistence Level are those of us who are barely making it, who have needs and wants like the rest of us, but who have less money to spend and little money for extras.
Self-Sustaining Level are those of us who have have jobs, go out to dinner regularly, we add to our wardrobes regularly, and we have extra money at the end of the month.
Philanthropic Level are those of us who tend to spend more, save more, and are able to share our wealth more. We thank you for sharing!
