So, for the covers I’ve found manufacturers that will wholesale anywhere from $3-$10. Currently there are some sellers on amazon, one in particular retailing at $39.99 with over 300 reviews, Now a problem I anticipate is getting into a me to product, with this seller many others have jumped on the band wagon and are doing the same thing which saturates the market a bit. One seller somehow squeezed a Hail Mary and has lots of reviews & $70. No idea how they managed that but good for them. Pricing I could stay in the sub $30 range possibly but would need to sell via different venues, which brings me back to the importance of building a brand. As I have an interest in animals, having some type of local events to boost familiarity with my name should help cement me into the brand people want to suppport. Back to the prices, I see a sub $10 profit or so with the cover, don’t know how to include taxes and shipping but when I have it in my hands with the bill paid it can be calculated. As for the beds I know wholesale (again alibaba) we can buy for under $5, maybe could retail these for under $20 and still squeeze in a small profit. Like I mentioned I have no clue about shipping fees so this will be my education process. I’ve read the thread you posted about “do you want it the easy way or hard way” what I took from that is taking tiny profits is something people will overlook, so in the example of dog beds, even if we’re paying $10 and selling them for $20, and only make a few bucks after shipping costs, lots of people will not pursue something tedious like that. Thanks for that thread btw! For toys I meant under $5, see tons of suppliers that sell super cheap ( under $1 even ) so maybe giving away free toys and chalking it up as an advertisement fee could be a great approach, everyone loves free stuff. Thanks again for taking time to reply!Ok, so car seat covers... I sell those too. Have you done your numbers on those? What price are you selling at? What is going to make yours different than the others?
Beds? what's your selling price on them? Even the $20 beds are huge to ship.
Toys at $5? You need to be at $1.5-$2 a toy max. I can't imagine what toys you are buying at $5?
I'd love to see what your estimated pricing is on these. Because I don't see alot of profit in there.
