Hi, I haven’t been here for a while. I am selling herb plants online and offline. Since some months I am selling in a shop in town and this goes quite well. She only wants 20% (commission) this is unusual but I had to bring my own shelves shade cloth etc. I want to ask in other nurseries, maybe hardware stores – what do you think is a reasonable markup for the shops? What would be the markup for commision or for wholesale? Plants are perishable at least if not properly cared for.
100% is the seller gets 50% I think that’s too much for my taste. I do one shop with 40% and already think that is a lot. In the 20% shop I installed a watering system so basically I look after the plants and it is close so every now and then I hop into the shop. So in your opinion 40% is not too much!
