I’m surprised by the hate that’s been directed your way. What you describe is a very common business model, and i know that several “seed banks” do the exact same thing. I remember a seedbank advertising those services several years ago, but cannot remember who it was. SEEDSMAN appears to be placing their label on other’s seeds. I wish you the best of luck.

Not sure about everyone else but, when I purchase seeds, I want them straight from breeder.
Too many banks and middle men invites untraceable trickery.
I want the shortest, most dependable, trustworthy chain of custody.
Some middleman could just slap ANY hype label on seeds he can't move.

Its quite an easy proposal actually. If you have the ability to set up a very nice web site, promote that site, get your s.e.o. sorted.
If you can do that, its easy, but why would you get more for the same seeds than anyone else would?
That's the real problem here. You're only marketing would be online. People who are online, do their searches. If price or reputation of seller has anything to do with choice, you're screwed.
The only option to cost plus pricing would be a commission deal. Which maybe workable, but not if you're also looking for OEM. That creates work and at a reduced income for the company doing the work. They'll kick you to the curb for that request.
Question is, do you have the cash to put up for your end? Do you have the skills?

Generally, the 'commission' is paid by the manufacturer/grower/seller/whatever rather than a cost plus. That would be more like a retailer.

Think... manufacturer's representative. I did that for years. Sold other people's products because I was better at it than they were. Or, maybe a niche market. I sold to the DoD. A market that most of my manufacturer's were not familiar with. And, I often put my name on their products. Products you know like Alcoa and Alcan were in a white box with my company's name and logo on it rather than Alcoa's. This kept the Alcoa distributors in that area from realizing I was selling the same product as they were in their own back yard that was protected under their distributor agreement with Alcoa.

I was a little confused by the hateful replies as well.

That's the problem. He ain't setting up a company, he doesn't want to spend money on the seeds, nor ship and handle em. He just wants to set up a store that works on drop shipping.

Quote:
Drop shipping is a supply chain management method in which the retailer does not keep goods in stock but instead transfers the customer orders and shipment details to either the manufacturer, another retailer, or a wholesaler, who then ships the goods directly to the customer. As in retail business, the majority of retailers make their profit on the difference between the wholesale and retail price, but some retailers earn an agreed percentage of the sales in commission, paid by the wholesaler to the retailer.
So he would just be a BS 3rd party middleman, who only runs his online store, takes no risks, doesn't put money down on the seeds, does none of the actual work involved in the process like growing the plants, breeding, selection, sorting, shipping, handling, etc etc. But jacks up the prices for the customer and/or takes a cut from the breeder's profit after a sale.

Like someone said earlier, if the customer buys straight from the source and eliminates the middleman, the seeds will most likely be cheaper for the customer to purchase and the breeder gets to keep his share without that middleman shaving off 25% from the top. (or whatever his commission is.)

While I think the drop shipping business model is legal, it's not far away from a scam. So yea, some of the replies were a bit harsh, but I understand

A question to the original poster: You started another thread a while ago where you were asking for advice on breeding your own autoflower strain here..
Yet in this thread you say: "I want to market seeds, not breed them or send them from the country that has the most restricted cannabis laws."

So which is it?

Something like this sounds like it would be a breeding ground for scammers and bunk seeds. The seeds game has changed a lot over the years always look for real reviews.

I understand your concern. Everyone wants that.

Where would you go if you want milk? To the cow or mall? There are probably 3 middle men involved until you actually drinking it.

Congratulations Sherlock.

I've been in marketing for about 15 years and approximately 8 years observing cannabis industry and history. I love pot, I love read books about it, I have my own seed collection and I love to play with basic breeding when I can. This is my hobby and my real passion. I would love to do it everyday and start my own seedbank but this is not gonna happen where I currently reside. There is too much risk involved to start my own lab and send seeds abroad.

I started looking into ways how to connect my skills with my biggest passion. Strange things happening down here. You ask a simple business question in a business section of this forum and you get "polite / professional" answers like that.
