Bumper stickers for your favorite air conditioner are no longer a rarity in China, but it’s still difficult to find them on Amazon.
That’s because of a government program aimed at making Chinese consumers more affordable, the Wall Street Journal reports.
As part of the government program, manufacturers have to add a sticker price for each new model of their air conditioners to an online marketplace, making it much easier to find the best deals on air conditionors in China.
The program was launched in 2016.
The goal is to lower the cost of air conditioning for Chinese consumers, and Chinese officials say it has resulted in significant savings for them.
According to the WSJ, the program is called “bargain-by-price,” and is the first time China has used such a method in a country where the average price of a home is roughly 2,300 yuan ($2800) per square meter.
The government aims to reduce the cost to the average home by at least 50 percent, according to the Chinese government.
