    if a particular product features in several merchant's store, will it not be good for all of us having the same product to come together and agree on a particular price we will all sell it on our stores, instead of adjusting the price of the same product every now and then to attract buyer to one's store.
    for example, if store B keeps looking at what price store A is selling a particular item to adjust the cost store B should sell, we all will keep adjusting prices to attract customers until some of us will start selling at the cost price or discontinue the sales of the item from his/her store and this does not mean well for a good growing business.

    Everyone has spoken well. Just an addition to the gist. Even if you Unify prices, assuming it is possible, it doesn't guarantee that buyers will buy more often from you than the other. The buying factor always depends on 1) your store visibility, 2) your precise description of the product is also a factor in helping people search for products, 3) I think your level and number of stars also matters. 
    
    With the upcoming migration, I suspect there will be even more competition, assuming Konga does their own part by making sure the they do just like they have promised. If so, then customers will also take into consideration the number of positive comments made by other buyers from your store, your level of communication and your delivery time will also be an important factor.
    
    Even if your price is twice compared to the next person's store, a customer that understands what they want will always buy from you so long as they have more confident in your services.  That's just the difference between Konga and Jumia. They former made their customers to believe they're safer and more reliable with them than the latter. Simple marketing strategy!

    Charles, i believe that competition is healthy, that's one of the importance of business so prices can never be the same even if we buy from the same supplier i may decide not to make as much profit as you wish to make or decide to make more profit than you. Its my business remember, not our business.

    Charles, Unifying prices will not be possible,Sellers have different suppliers and prices differ depending on the source... Its like going to a Physical shopping mall (like The Palms or E-centre) and expecting a Samsung shop and A privately owned shop to have the very same prices. Not possible. 
    
    Even on Ali Express prices of the same item on different stores are not the same.

    Not a good idea but is a great thing if we all buy it from same market. where you buy it might be cheaper than where someone bought his/her own. Secondly, konga percentage commission is high that you have to even add it up to make ur own gain. 
    lastly, everyone is not on the same level on konga.
