I'm not understanding the flavor shot prices. I need extremely strong juice, just to taste. I am willing to pay a slight premium for that. But 35% is NOT slight.
I would assume flavor shots are a certain % of the flavor already in the formula. If so the price should be a certain % of the normal price. The way you have it now a 12 ml bottle with 3 shots cost 35% more, a 120ml bottle with 3 cost 6% more, a liter bottle with 3 cost 1.5% more.
The only way your pricing would make sense is if a shot is an exact amount of flavor. For example 1 shot = 1 ml. But That would still be horrible, because then 3 shots in a 12 ml bottle would be to much, and 3 shots in a liter wouldn't be noticeable.
I don't mind the slight raise in prices, especially since you say there will still be sales. But I would never pay 2.84 for a 2.09 bottle, just because I need more flavor. From 120ml up the price for flavor isn't way bad, so might still buy them. But if I can't buy the small bottles, I might just never get around to ordering the big ones either.
So basically please clarify if the shots are a % of flavor, or an exact amount, or combination. And please reconsider your prices, especially for the small bottles

Reason: because I had a price wrong
Well, my order (#2571) has finally been updated to "Shipped". No update on the tracking information yet. Looks like 5 business day turn around. Still looking forward to trying them all out.
That was an error on our end. It is suppose to be $0.10 cents extra not $0.25 cents. Sorry! Our prices are still cheap. I dont see many other vendors offering their juices at our prices. We raised our standard flavor percentage already, which shouldnt even require many shots if any, which does go by percentage and not exact ml, due to the different amounts needed for each bottle. Its there just for the people who have a hard time tasting.
Just maybe you are approaching this wrong .... what would be the cost of that bottle of juice with the extra flavor shot cost at another company?

That's an understatement.
Are two flavor shots twice as much extra flavoring as one flavor shot - and three thrice as much as one?

Also consider, look at other vendor sites. They charge quite a bit more for their flavor shots. I think we are extremely fair.
very true there are not many vendors out there offering 12-15ml juice for even $2.99

I'm not bitching about the price increase in general, just the flavor shots. They are still the cheapest, best vender online.
What we did was change the shot price to $.10 cents there are 2 shots available now. The first flavor shot adds about 1/4 of the initial percentage we use, and the 2nd flavor shot adds about half of the initial percentage. We raised our standard flavor percentage though, and some flavors are really strong while some are on the mild side. I would recommend trying them without the flavor shot, or maybe just 1 extra shot to see how you like it before going for the bigger shot.
