Hi all, I’ve had an enquiry from a website to sell my items. It would be via drop shipping, so they want to know my RRP, wholesale price and want samples of my work. I know the site through their group on Facebook and I have no reason to believe there would be any problem, I’m just not sure how it would work.
Essentially, the items would be on their website, people would order there and they’d forward the order to me, which I would then make and send to the customer.
The problem I have is the wholesale price. If one of my papercuts is £30, then should my wholesale price be £15? That seems quite low, although if there were a lot of orders, it would be better than no orders, which is pretty much where I am now. Or could I suggest that my wholesale price is £20?
The website would also take postage costs, so for a framed papercut, I charge £5.50. Would I add that to the wholesale cost?
This seems like a good opportunity, as the website is closely aligned to what I sell the most of in terms of design, although it’s not actually launched yet.
Any advice anybody has would be massively appreciated.
