It’s not a big secret that the bailey’s liqueour is cheap.
But it seems that there are some consumers who aren’t convinced.
The price tag on the baiceys liquor has come down from $4 to $2.80 per bottle in the past few years, according to research by e-commerce giant Alibaba, while the price of French liqueure has gone up by $3.50.
However, in the country of 4.3 million people, where the price is not that low, many are not happy.
Many have demanded that the company take back the price hike.
“Bailey’s has been doing a lot of good things in the industry, but now they are losing sales, especially for non-Korean customers, and they are making money on the sale,” a Korean woman who asked to remain anonymous said.
“They are also making money from the sale of bailey’s products abroad, which they need for their own domestic consumption.”
Another woman, who asked not to be named, said that the price increase is “unfair”.
“The price of the bailes has gone down but the price on the liqueures has gone higher.
They need to change the pricing to be fair for both brands and consumers,” she said.
However, Alibaba CEO Jack Ma said the company will not be taking back the increase.
“We will not take back our price increase.
We have a strict policy against price increases.
We will not accept them and we will try our best to keep our customers happy,” he said.
Bailey and Baileys has not responded to requests for comment.
