Has the end come for reptiles for sale online?

There is no shortage of reptiles for sale and despite common belief the sky is not crashing in on online sales. There are numerous ways for the public to buy reptiles online, everything from websites and online market places to forums and social media.

Amazingly as the number of outlets for selling reptiles grows so does the market and the demand. These days it is the norm for the same seller to offer the same animal for sale on multiple platforms and with some simple changes the online buying experience can be a positive one for everyone involved.

Snakes for sale online

We have been in the business of selling and breeding reptiles for a quarter of a century but as we delve into the online market place it is interesting to see how many things can and should be improved to make the buying experience a better one. As the public demand for snakes for sale online continues to grow it is surprising to see how many websites go stale with a lack of an updated availability list.

Even some social media pages seem to have a seasonal ebb and flow and left neglected in the end. This is one easy to remedy step that can and will make for a much better buying experience for the customer.

Ball Pythons for sale online

As a large part of the reptile industry the availability and pricing of ball Pythons for sale online seems to determine whether or not breeders and suppliers gauge the marketplace as a strong or weak one. With the advent of online auctions for reptiles it became evident that selling was not a problem as long as you were willing to occasionally lose your pants on the deal.

There is no trick to making an auction sale but the bottom line is the quality and health of the animals being auctioned as well as the integrity and the customer service offered by the sellers. We feel that there are plenty of good customers out there that want an animal that is represented fairly, sexed and identified properly and delivered promptly with an understanding that keeping a customer around means offering product support after the payments have been received and the package has been signed for.

Boas for sale online

When the customers have managed to get through the glut of Ball Pythons they can find other reptiles like boas for sale online. It is almost impossible these days to find good quality animals for sale that are available in any sort of numbers. You always tend to find a clutch or a litter here and there and by the time you have gone through establishing and marketing that particular product for sale it seems that you may never find the second batch of equivalent quality and price.

We feel that building a network of respected breeders is the first step in starting an online reptile store and the better you treat these people and build a trusting partnership with them the better your company will do in the long run. At XYZReptiles we are constantly looking for the right breeder to join our team and let us support them in the marketing and distribution of their product so that they can concentrate on the business of animal husbandry and breeding that got them where they are today.
