Need Help with Prices

Post by SpiderSam on Wed Apr 08, 2015 1:12 pm

So since no one on my page about bugs will give me their prices on bugs I want to know the average prices for everything that seems reasonable I was looking at selling mealworms 3 cents a worm and 7 cents a cricket is that too much or too little? same goes for red wigglers and such even tho I have none yet Im trying my best but no one will tell me so its getting frustrating -_-

Hi

Unfortunately I have no idea of the prices in Canada for such things. Are there no websites in Canada of companies selling such bugs and stuff for you to look at and get an idea of the prices they charge?

There are websites like Flucker farms and such but depending on how much u get the price goes down and they start at like 6-5 cents a mealworm and here at our pet store she is selling her mealworms at 10 cents and crickets at 11cents and in my opinion is way to high but she is a independent owner an that's how she makes money!! so that's why I started at 3 cents only because looking at websites the highest amount of mealworms u get at 3 cents a piece! but thanks myrm I guess I keep looking :c

You need to consider who your market is and how much profit you want to make.

For example, if you wanted to sell to bin lids (kids) and you don't really want to make any profit then you'd need to sell them cheap as possible.

If you wanted to sell loads to pet shops you probably could afford more.

My advice is to sell them cheap and you can always adjust your price as you see what demand is. So sell them for 3 cents and take it from there. Smile

10c a cricket. Whoa that is pretty high Razz We get $1 a dozen and they always throw in more then 12. Although it depends on the pet shop.

I'm also with myrm, i don't know much about selling things Razz

Just check out the online sellers to get an idea. Probably a broad range out there.

Yeah from what I've read there is a wide range. I'd go with some of the big competitors and compare their prices.
