Old thread..

The last several pages are irrelevant because the posters didn't read the OP.

Drop shipping is not the issue here. Relabeling seeds is what I took issue with. That and laziness, which isn't a crime just my opinion.

The OP was going to sell relabeled seeds with his brand. Taking say ditch passion seeds, having someone else relabeling them whatever his brand is, and someone else shipping them to the customer. In affect doing nothing but discrediting the seeds and lining his pockets. And do we really think those strains will retain their original names, doubt it.

If you were to start a company that resells ditch passion and drop ships ditch passion seeds in original packaging, that is totally normal.

It's the rebranding that set me off.

I would be happy to find an American reseller of Ace gear, that takes credit / debit cards. Got one in Canada, just need to use a Mastercard.

Damn these posts are insane and vulgar. Yes too many middlemen, too many people trying to make a buck but unless they add some value in product or service they wont survive in a capitalist driven system. The replies here are atleast childish, the member was asking a genuine question, that today hundreds of people are doing, dropshipping, private label, white label etc. Its a simple business practice followed in all countries across the world. Take for instance a swaziland market stall holder, you think they got the time to grow a variety of vegetables and sell them to consumers! Nope.

Truth is cannabis needs people like this, it will be stock standard industry like most. I guess none of you guys have run your own businesses!! Flame me, lets go.

6 pages later, https://tiger-one.eu might be of use to the original poster.

the dropshipping business model just means that people do all the marketing and collecting orders on behalf of the companies that provide the actual products.


But I really don´t think that this model will catch on in the weed-seed business. It´s just too risky for everyone involved imo

Unless you've lots of capital and connections already, if you want to be successful as a late entry in an already saturated market, innovation helps a lot. And you are in the right place to get feedback on what customers like and dislike about the common current models.

Does your site have better internal search systems?
Do you offer strains that are hard to acquire elsewhere?
Basically why should anyone buy from you?

Drop shipping is OK, but swish adverts and a blog are not enough anymore.

There are LOTS of seedbanks already, I don’t know how many fail every year. In truth, I skip past all the flashy adverts of generic hype names and go straight to the breeder, collector, or network, because they sell authentic beans and often for a lower price, while offering better support and plenty of free seeds and rewards too.

Rebranding breeders work feels dishonest and impersonal, so will make serious buyers who know the market more sceptical. Others will avoid if the strain name, description or photos are the same as those of the original breeder, or if the breeders name is not available, plus you’re in a poor position to answer questions about genetics, effects, etc. And if you're targeting the cheap end of the market, how will you undercut the established players without a reputation?

If you select strains/suppliers wisely and market them right, there could be an opportunity.

Personally I think there is a huge gap in the market. With the advancement of cultivars and innovations, top seedbanks should be putting better descriptions of cannabinoids available. Further to that the naming convention of sativa, indica, ruderalis is being debated and not cast in stone, so I think we will see it moving in the direction of compounds found in the plants/seeds. But agreed, you will need lots of money to make some changes.
