Photocopier price variation: The reason most photocopier machines vary in price and one of the main reasons is the profit the dealer puts on the machine. I have seen deals where they have put over £100k profit on a few machines. Most dealers will, however, try to make at least £500 -£2000.
Photocopier price quality: Another reason there is variety is not all MFP printers or copiers are made the same. Even machines from the same manufacturer can be made in different factories or by other manufacturers. This can increase price or even decrease the price, as it’s not unheard of for a manufacturer to have agreements that they won’t sell under a certain price, allowing the “manufacturer” buying the machine to sell cheaper.
Some of the machines are made in various places of the world and so the amount can be affected by exchange rates. Quite recently one manufacturer was hit quite hard by this and had to lay off staff due to the euro.
Photocopiers are large and bulky machines and so with parts and machines travelling from China and other countries like in Europe to be assembled this adds to the cost of the photocopier machines.
