Seduce your wallet with free, cheap or half price mobile phone deals (safely)

Written by Duncan Elliott

You probably already know that mobile phone retailers are falling over themselves to better each others deals. You will see many websites and high street shops advertising free or discounted line rental offers for 6, 9, 12 even 14 months.

So how canrepparttar dealers make these seemingly crazy offers? First, you need to understand howrepparttar 149258 dealer gets paid and howrepparttar 149259 mobile phone industry works (just a little bit). The dealer gets paid byrepparttar 149260 network, based on what price plan (tariff) he connectsrepparttar 149261 customer to; a higher price plan means more money forrepparttar 149262 dealer.

Dealer Profit

Thenrepparttar 149263 dealer must pay forrepparttar 149264 cost ofrepparttar 149265 phone. A high quality and expensive phone means less profit forrepparttar 149266 dealer. The difference betweenrepparttar 149267 tariff commission andrepparttar 149268 cost ofrepparttar 149269 phone givesrepparttar 149270 dealers gross profit.

However,repparttar 149271 dealer must then pay any cashback money from this remaining commission. The dealer basically is 'betting' on how many customers will claim their cashback money afterrepparttar 149272 stated 6th/12th month (or as given);repparttar 149273 lowerrepparttar 149274 percentage of customers that claim,repparttar 149275 higherrepparttar 149276 dealers profits. The higherrepparttar 149277 percentage claiming,repparttar 149278 closerrepparttar 149279 dealer comes to going bust!

It is a fact that many are actually offering deals to customers that do not make them any money at all, and may make a loss. So how can they make this work?

Retailer goes bust without paying customer

The worrying problem is that some do not make it work, and have gone bust. Less reputable and unstable companies have not gotrepparttar 149280 balance right and had to pay out so much cashback that they simply do not haverepparttar 149281 money in their coffers to pay, and have closed shop leavingrepparttar 149282 customer without their cashback money.

In 2004 Mobile Republic went into administration allegedly for this very reason, and left many customers without their cashback.
