According to BayRu executives, the goal of the new DIY store is to deliver online shoppers the best pricing for Amazon goods, eBay goods and shipping to Russia.
In contrast to the company's fast-growing store VIP shop Bay.ru, the Dostami.ru store pursues a “high-volume, low-margin” strategy: 10% markup on the cost of goods and no mark-up standard express mail shipping rates.
"Do-It-Yourself technology and Russia's best prices are what make Dostami.ru different. You choose items from eBay.com's listings, you choose items from Amazon.com's listings, you choose your preferred payment method, you choose your shipping options - all without leaving our site. From Sochi to Murmansk, from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok, our customers get to make all of the decisions themselves. Furthermore, Dostami.ru is the only international store to offer free consolidation, free insurance, and free customs clearance for all orders, no strings attached,” says CEO Aaron Block.
BayRu LLC founder Anton German remarked, "Back in 2007, we pioneered Russian international online shopping by launching Bay.ru for customers who needed trusted shipping, the widest selection of goods and American-style customer service. Now, we offer Dostami.ru to customers who appreciate our Bay.ru flagship but prefer a more cost-effective, DIY alternative. It's a natural complement to our core VIP business."
