Challenges of Starting a Pet supply Business | Pet Product Supplier

Starting a pet supply business can be a rewarding but also challenging endeavor and there are a few things, please keep in mind to make sure you are successful.

1. find a niche

There are a lot of pet supply stores, so it’s really important to find a niche for your business. What makes your store different from the others? Finding a niche will help you stand out from the competition.

Do you specialize in natural or organic pet products?

Or you offer custom pet products?

Do you only offer textile-related products like pet clothes, pet beds, and pet carriers like what we do?

find a niche

2. find a proper pet supply supplier

More and more people in western countries have pets and they spend a lot of money on their daily needs. So this creates a large market for pet products and which many Chinese suppliers are so eager to tap into.

However, finding reliable pet product suppliers from China can be a huge challenge, as many scams operate in business. You may want to search on some B2B platforms like Alibaba, Global Sources and Made-in-china, etc.

We’ve been sourcing manufacturing and exporting textile and pet supplies. And know that most of the suppliers there are just traders, not like direct factories. Because the real factories are always busy and have full production lines. Most importantly, they don’t even need to promote on B2B platforms.

2. Find a proper supplier from china

As a professional pet supply exporter, we don’t own any factory. But within 10 years, we focus on one industry and offer all solutions to pet supply licensed and non-licensed importers. Check our YouTube Channel and see how we serve.

3. choose a right location

If you want to set up a physical pet supply store, then choose a location that has high foot traffic.

If you are starting a pet supply business online, like Amazon. It’s much more popular to work from anywhere, especially during pandemic situations. And there are tons of free and useful tutorial youtube videos to help you get started. And when you import from China to the Amazon warehouse, communicate more with your supplier about the box requirements.

3. Choose a right location

4. get the right license and permits

Check with your local government to find out what you need for the pet supply business.

But if you want to import from china, then you need to get an importing license to ensure customs clearance.

Or you can also work with our professional freight forwarders to deal with customs clearance and delivery in your local. That’s DDP (Delivered- Duty-Paid), it’s our expertise.

4. Get the importing license

5. marketing your pet supplies business

Luckily there are many marketing strategies and here are a few ideas to get you started. Check the YouTube video at 03:18 for more details.
