Product Bundles: Increase sales by bundling in-demand partner products with your own, and offer a discount on your items as an additional incentive.
Wholesale Pricing: Provide extra discounts on wholesale purchases to furnish additional incentives for prospective buyers.
Shipping Tips and Strategies:
Marketing Costs: Selling multiple items in one order not only increases your Average Order Value but also saves on customer acquisition costs that would otherwise be incurred per item.
Shipping Cost Evaluation: Inspect each product and its corresponding shipping cost distinctly. While uncommon, some imported products might carry high shipping fees, especially when ordering more than one item. Usually, adding more items to the cart does not significantly increase shipping fees.
Utilize Shipping & Customs Calculations: Employ the "Calculate Shipping & Customs" feature on each product card and review all your Suppliers’ Shipping Policies to astutely decide your pricing and avert unforeseen costs.
Create Individual Shipping Profiles for Each Brand's Products Imported Through Buddify: If you select 10 products from 5 different brands, consider establishing 5 separate shipping profiles, one for each brand. By doing so, you can maintain steady oversight of your shipping costs and profitability, ensuring that you remain profitable when selling one or more partner products in conjunction with your own items.
Shipping Settings: Remember that when selling a Partner Product, your shipping settings apply, enabling you to charge shipping twice in cases where you sell a Partner Product and your own product.
Product Bundling: Explore creating bundles with your products and partner products, establishing a new shipping profile to optimize low shipping fee products with high profit margin supplier products, enhancing overall profits.
Remember, Buddify is a marathon, not a sprint. It may take time for other brands to notice your products. By implementing the above tips, you can speed up the process and attract more brands. Additionally, spending more time within the Buddify Community increases your chances of fruitful partnerships.
Always bear in mind that Buddify functions as a platform, equipping you with all the vital tools for partnerships and cross-store selling. It enables brands and retailers to discover each other's products and brands, facilitating seamless importation and selling processes. Nevertheless, your success on Buddify is also contingent upon factors such as product quality, captivating images, understanding your target audience, pricing, and various other considerations.
