Start a Pet Products Distribution Business

If you want to start a pet products distribution business, you have to find manufacturers of pet products online. You can opt for drop shipping so that you don’t have to maintain product inventory.

Sell pet products on your own optimized site and in the future, you can expand the business by finding a store location.

Online Pet Products Distribution Business

Whether you plan to start a home-based business or launch your own store, becoming a distributor is a great way to earn great profits. Most households today have pets and you can use this knowledge to start a pet products distribution business. You can find a manufacturer of pet products and you can sell the products at wholesale to get a commission. There are companies that drop ships the items to customers, so you don’t have to maintain inventory. With an online business, you can sell different kinds of pet products and you don’t have to focus in only one manufacturer.

You can become a distributor of different manufacturers of pet products. By doing so, you can offer your customers a wide range of product choices. You should possess relevant knowledge about the pet products so that you can answer the questions of potential customers. If you prefer drop shipping, you have to do your homework to find the companies that offer this option. There are benefits of not maintaining inventory at home and besides, this means fewer jobs for you.

Name of the Business and Other Concerns

Choose a catchy and easy-to-recall name for the business. Since you’re selling pet products, you have to choose a name that gives people the idea of what you’re selling. You have to apply for vendor’s license and register the DBA. If there are zoning laws in your area, you have to comply but if there are no restrictions of maintaining a home-based business, make a go for it. You need a home office with fax machine, computer, internet, and a separate phone line exclusively for the distribution business. Develop your own website where you will sell the pet products. You also have to create business cards, catalogs, order forms, and order brochures. Don’t forget to indicate your contact info on the paperwork.

You have to contact local pet stores where you can sell the pet products at wholesale. You should also post ads on the classifieds of newspapers in your local area. If you decide to expand in the future, you can now find a great location for the business. Aside from selling wholesale, you can also establish a retail pet products business in the future. For now, focus on your online distribution business. If it proves to be a success, you’re sure to earn great profits. This is your chance to manage a business from the comforts of your home. Work out your plan today and use it as a guide.
