I think the part you are missing in this particular case is that there are those in SL who avoid purchasing products or even stepping foot on Amiryu's sims for reasons that have nothing to do with the prices. I know, I'm one of them. I wouldn't even if it were free.
That's not the case for all merchants who are starting businesses on other grids, but I think you are arguing from a position of lack of information on this one.
