Usually gets tasty when the 80% kicks in.

I grabbed some Nudies at 50 points off, but have a feeling they'll be crap and get backed instantly

True it's good when they put the old stock back on as well, but wonder if that'll go to yoox these days.

Only gets good at 70% but that is when TK Maxx effect kicks in - the only thing I bought was some Cheaney toe cap derbies

not that i know anything about E-commerce, but surely the only reason a site would use a wishlist is so it knows how in demand their products are and will reduce them accordingly.
if the have 10 pairs of shoes left and 20 people have them on their wishlist, i would imagine you would see a small reduction, if any.

Not that simple sadly. I have had 25 watchers on an item on ebay last week… none actually willing to pay at that price it seems… For sale/ebay buyers - its ALWAYS about price.

Nobody at Mr. Porter is individually going through each item and reducing their price - all they'll do is get their programmers to write some algorithm that automatically reduces price over brands / categories at a specific percentage and date / time.

They'll know at what percentage they're still making a profit - i.e. a reduction of 30% might still yield a 10% gross profit / margin.

I'd imagine all that wishlist stuff is just for customer retention and marketing.

in my case most of the items which are not reduced are part of their essentials or 'non season related' stuff, but yep…that wishlist thing must be a e-commerce dream, no doubt.

Surely they could alter the algorithm to take account of how many people have added an item to their wishlist. Please stop posting about things you clearly have no idea about, stick to xenophobia.

Yeah it tends to be the case that seasonal inventory is heavily discounted for obvious reasons (you don't want to hold summer stock in the winter for example).
