Funko Pops in Brazil
The Funko Pop market in Brazil has grown a lot, and importers of these kinds of products have many customers. And although there is already a certain variety of Funkos on the Brazilian sites, we know well that most of the exclusive or rare items are on the American sites.
This limits access for those who don’t know or are not confident enough to buy funko pop directly from American sites. And as we always talk about here, the importer is the one who makes this bridge.
This is just one of thousands of ideas of what can be very profitable to import. Just by being able to guarantee that it is a product genuinely made in the USA, this information already adds value to your product, because originality is an extra factor of relevance for any product sold in Brazil.
For you who want to start your Funkos collection but don’t have enough confidence to import, or don’t have the necessary tools like an international card, ViajaBox offers Assisted Purchase.
Through Assisted Purchase, ViajaBox will buy the Funko Pop of your choice without you having to worry about this part of the process. Watch this video below that explains how Assisted Buy works.
In Brazil, while some common models may cost between 100 and 200 reals, other slightly different items can be announced at 700 or 1,000 reals, depending on the number of items present in the package, its size, whether it is a limited edition, among other various factors that affect the price in Brazil.
On American sites, the gap between the prices of different items is not as huge as in Brazil – where an item can cost three or four times as much as another in the same category. This provides a good profit margin on items where you pay little in the United States, and charge a lot for selling the same item in Brazil.
And if you stop to think a little further, the importer has his reasons to charge dearly for his products, because he does a service that not everyone has the patience to perform: He has to deal with the IRS; once in a while, he has to pay American freight; American tax on purchase, etc. This whole process is perfectly tame for a minimally experienced importer. For we know that importing is no big deal, and in time it becomes very simple indeed, as if you were buying in Brazil.
Therefore the price that is charged, hides a series of processes that only the importer is aware of. And therefore, only he is able to translate all this effort into the final sales value of a product.
Funko pops are not hard to find on American websites. If you type the term “funko pop” into the search bar within an American online store, the site is likely to suggest entire collections organized by thematic categories within the platform. This is just a hint of the universe that this type of product represents on many sites.
In summary, if you are a Funko Pop collector and are looking for a way to acquire original and exclusive products, ViajaBox is the ideal solution for you.
