Online prices

Postby Alik » Sat May 18, 2013 8:05 am

Hello,
I was doing a price survey on Whiskybase for a Port Ellen OB 9th release 2009.
By comparing the different retailers i noticed there is a HUGE price difference between them (sometimes 100%..this occurs with a lot of prestigious OB's from closed distilleries)
Can someone explain me why there is such a big difference ?.. does a "fake" market exist online (that is with 'respected' official retailers.. not Ebay)... if yes,how can you detect that ?

It is presumed that the retailers have sufficient knowledge that it is genuine. Whereas, with ebay you are really dealing with individuals Also, retailers are not working with a deadline. IE, sell by May 25th.
