There are plenty of places you can go online to buy yoyos. It wasn’t an easy effort to find where I ended up purchasing.
First, I was looking for a store, but I was also looking for support. Being new and everything, YYE(this place) offered the following:
Training Tutorial videos
FAST email support(acceptable time to me)
A forum/web board, which encourages community
An IRC channel, which allows for real time interaction.
Plus, if I want to, I can call.
The store offers competitive pricing, fast shipping, large selection and excellent customer service.
The community around here is helpful, friendly and nice to hang around.
If you’re looking for “cheapest prices”, well, this is sort of a commodity type marketplace. But is the shipping keeping that price down?
Look at the whole picture. Look at the value add. The value-add actually makes the price that much a bigger value over other places.
Not the other places are bad. There are some other great stores that sell yoyos, and I can think of 2 off the top of my head. But I’ve also seen some with poor choices(1 brand which only has 3 models!) but good videos.
Not to say I’ve been checking out every online store on the planet/internet, but from what I’ve looked, I voted with my money. I’ve done all my online purchases through YYE. I plan to continue it as much a s possible. Of course, that’s not always possible, but I’ll ensure I give YYE first shot at it, just as I do with other retailers I work with for other products I need(such as audio gear).
