Important Questions For A Wholesale Live Bait Provider

Terra Fields

Whether you operate a pay lake, bait shop, or even a pet store with fish and reptiles, finding a good wholesale live bait worm supplier is important. These suppliers offer bulk quantities of various types of worms, such as nightcrawlers and mealworms, for a discounted price. Each provider will have a different lineup of inventory and price range, so asking a few questions in advance is always recommended. Here are a few important questions to ask a wholesale live bait provider. 

Does the provider offer live-bait guarantees?

Live-bait guarantees mean that a supplier guarantees the health of the bait once it arrives. It is normal to have a few worms or insects to die during shipment, but a live-bait guarantee will mean you get free replacements if there is a substantial loss when the bait lands at your place of business. If a provider does not offer this kind of guarantee, you could end up with a major loss and having to pay out of pocket to have them replaced. 

Do all types of bait ship through all seasons?

Some bait suppliers will ship pretty much all types of bait through all seasons. However, in order for this to work and to keep the bait alive, the supplier has to utilize specialized packing materials to keep the bait at the right temperature. Due to this fact, not every supplier will ship all types of bait throughout the year. Knowing what can be shipped at what time of year can help you make plans about your orders accordingly so you always get what you need to be delivered before a shipping season is over. 

What type of shipping is offered and what does it cost?

Many wholesale bait worm providers offer several options for shipping. You may find one or two-day shipping or standard shipping, for example. Naturally, the different shipping options may have different costs associated. Check on shipping options and find out how much each option costs so you can determine which provider offers the shipping at a price that works with your business budget.

Are there minimum order restrictions?

While you may be ordering bulk quantities of certain types of bait, some baits may not be as requested or used, so you may not need such large quantities every time you place an order with your supplier. Some wholesale live bait suppliers do have minimum order requirements on certain species of bait, so make sure you check with them to find out about these requirements.

Good Record-keeping Helps New Business Owners Avoid Tax-time Headaches

I have been a business owner for years, and I want to share some tips for success with new entrepreneurs out there who are struggling. I have had my share of business ups and downs, but there was one lesson that it took me way too long to learn: Good financial record-keeping year-long keeps tax time from being so stressful. During my first year in business, I kept most business expense receipts, but when tax time arrived, I found out that I needed to save much more than just those receipts. Thanks to technology, I was able to recover most of the documentation I needed, but it was a huge headache. I quickly invested in good record-keeping software and it made tax time much less stressful during the following years.
