What is the process of sending the boxes? Do we have to do that in house, or does somebody else handle that?

What is your return rate / chargeback rate look like?

Do you do any paid advertising (FB , Google) etc? If so, how successful were those campaigns for you?

What happened to the profit margin in Jan, to be negative?

How many hours per week to do you spend on the company.. and what are those duties?

Do you collect any company reviews from apps like TrustSpot.io ?

@Tallylee We currently make the boxes ourselves. There are several drop ship companies that could help out if that was what you wished to do. We have been in contact with one in particular that comes in at better pricing than what we do ourselves, and could speak to them on the new owners behalf.

@Tigershark87
We currently take care of all the product handling and packing of the boxes in house. We have been in contact with several drop ship companies and do have a particular one that would come in at a better rate than what we do ourselves. We could always help negotiate on the new owners behalf.

We do not typically take back returns, as per our Policies, returns are only accepted if the products inside the box have been damaged. It is extremely rare.

We really don't advertise, yet are very well known in the Canadian pet industry, we have done some very small FB and Google ads, but not really anything to mention. Our customers have mostly come from searches. Search for dog subscription boxes in Canada, and we are at the top of the list.

You'll notice a big profit in December 2016 then a small loss in January, its just balance. Some product was invoiced late and we couldn't pay for it until then.

Hours spent per week are maybe 5-10 including answering emails, customer service, researching and ordering product, book keeping, general office duties. That number will jump another 12 hours the week the boxes are made and shipped. If a drop ship company was utilized then of course that week would be avoided.

We do not collect any company reviews.

What changed so drastically between December 16 and January of this year. Where do you get your supplies from? Is there a conceivable plan to get the cost down?
