The online future is here!
I would certainly recommend all shops who don't currently have an online store or actively advertise their products online via Facebook or other means should do so right now. It is a prime way to target your customer base and turn over stock that would otherwise be waiting for someone to find it.
The basics you need to ship fish are:
• Oxygen bottle
• packing supplies (fish bags, foam boxes, tape, heat packs and rubber bands)
• a reliable courier service
• a good doa policy
• and super healthy livestock.
Aquatic Solutions sells all the packaging supplies needed and we are happy to provide advice on shipping fish to ensure they arrive at their destination in top condition. We work tirelessly to ensure our stock is healthy. Our fish are thriving in our holding tanks and often breeding as well as growing in size during their time in our facility so feel free to ask questions about shipping anytime.
In recent times we have also been assisting our customers by pre-packing their customers orders for click and collect straight from their stores, so the fish don’t have to be unpacked and then repacked.
All in all, times are changing and online fish sales are well and truly riding the wave sweeping across the pet industry.
