Someone would request a certain cage, you'd give them a price quote. If they agreed, they'd give you a payment of, say, 20% (to make sure that they don't back out after the cage is built). Then when they come to pick up the cage (or when you deliver it to them), they pay you the rest of the money either by cash, money order, e-mail money transfer or maybe paypal. You could take personal cheques, but if you do, make sure you specify that the cheque (for the full amount) will need to clear before you can give them the cage.

Also, if you want all cash up front, I have found the easiest way for me is ordering with a Money Order. They send you the money order and you send the cage...be sure if you're shipping so specify whether you or the consumer is paying shipping charges.

Yep, you don't ship cages. Unless the buyer wants to pay TONS for shipping.

well, you can ship the cage, but it really depends on what the cage is made of and how big the cage is. I get all of my smaller cages shipped and the shipping is like $9. They are made of plastic and are about the size of a 10 gal glass aquarium. But the larges cages made of plastic start getting more expensive. Cages and racks systems made of melamine are hardly ever shipped due to the weight of the materials and size of the unit. There is one person online that biulds rack systems out of melamine, then disassmebles them for shipping. It still cost a little more, but with a screwdriver you can put the cage together in about 15 minutes.


I wish I could remember the site I saw that on

I've had issues with Paypal. It's great for a buyer but not a receiver.

For large melamine enclosures your market would probably be the local area.
