The problem with that however is… her ingredients are the highest quality, her profit margins are low.. so typically wholesale to retail they double the price or at least add 50%
she could not do a 50% wholesale discount without deep loss, so, you probably couldnt mark them up more then 10% profit
they are hand made in small batches, its not a factory that can produce 100,000 a day then double the price for retail..
so being a retail distributer localy would be more a service then a business.. but 10% return on investments not bad if they are already all sold tbe day they are delivered..
so its possible
if you could find 100+ people who want the products.. enoigh to make several bulk orders a month..it would be worthwhile enough…
Nice thanks I'll look into soap nuts (it just sounds funny), and yeah I've been using lush for now but I'm wondering how long it'll be okay for, they're really starting to lock up. Dammit I want Vicki's stuff! But hell no I don't want profit, breaking even would be fine. But I get what you're saying, tbh I don't think it would take much time to list the product on etsy etc, reach out to certain sites, maybe an hour per 100 units? I'm not good at business stuff I just kinda wing it but that worked with crypto and some other stuff. Even so I have enough capital to place a large order then reship/distribute, it's just the demand I'd need to focus on, like I need to know I can move it once I (if I) get it. But I could also ship to the whole EU....This might be interesting.
I definitely wouldn't want to affect vickis business so I could be negotiable on the price, that might help. I'll talk to her some more and see what I can do, I did ask and she did say it was covid and stuff arriving like broken and/or spilled so it just wasn't worth it for now, I'm paraphrasing but that was the jist
