Over the past few months, new tariffs by the United States have been placed on goods coming from China. Earlier this year, the Trump Administration placed duties on $50 billion in goods, but has recently escalated this to $200 billion. They also added that they are willing to add tariffs to an additional $267 billion, so more tariffs could be on the way.
This is of course excellent news for HeadsetBuddy and its customers. Since China is where our manufacturer is located, we have had an increase in our expense. Because of these expenses, we had to raise all our prices on both Headsetbuddy.com and on Amazon. Yes, it’s just excellent news all around. Thanks, President Trump!
The first set of tariffs imposed went into effect September 1st but are set to rise and the additional 15 percent begins January 1st. Our price increase is designed to reflect both changes, so that we do not need to increase prices again in a few months. These price increases will impact both individual customer sales and wholesalers alike.
Due to this we initiated our price increase went into effect on October 1st. We do not plan on additional price increases at this time, so the prices should remain the same for the foreseeable future. We are also looking at other manufacturing alternatives in Taiwan, Mexico and United States so that problems like these won’t happen again. Rest assured, Headset Buddy will not let these tariffs impact our dedication to our customers, and we will continue to provide quality products at an affordable price. It is our hope that our customers will understand why we have taken these measures, and that you will continue to enjoy our products going forward.
