I have a new product and my next step is to start approaching retailers to see if they want to stock my product. What are the usual requirements?
I heard that products need to have bar codes on the packaging and to have at least 1 million in product liability insurance. Is that true?
1. If my product has 4 sizes and two colors, do I need to have a bar code for each size and for each color?
2. Can I design my packaging the way I like it or will they tell me how they like it packaged to keep pilferage down?
4. Do I pay for freight charges or do they pay for freight delivered to their store?
5. What other things do they require?
I appreciate any advise on this matter as I am still a green thumb needing all the help I can get in this area. Thanks so much!
