Choosing an online hearing aid retailer
Buyers Beware – Too good to be true! – It probably is!
When choosing hearing aids online, shop carefully and ensure that the retailer looks trustworthy.
If the price looks too good to be true, then it probably is.
If the website does not look professional, then it probably isn’t.
Are the hearing aids fitted in a hotel room?
Other considerations include the display of prices. Some retailers online will ask for your contact details before offering you the hearing aid price. This is a clever marketing tool aimed at gathering your browsing data and then providing the ability to chase you and convince you to purchase.
Also be aware that some websites claiming to be third-party review websites. These are simple marketing ploys to capture your interest. These businesses or websites are often owned by a single company, or your data will be sold on to another provider as a lead.
Finally, call and ask questions about your hearing aid prices.

Other types of hearing aid retailers

Hearing aid clinics which operate outside the ownership of a hearing aid manufacturer are commonly referred to as independents. The largest independent Australian owned hearing company in Australia has 70 + clinics . The smaller independents are the majority. Independent retailers of hearing aids are more likely Australian owned and operated.
