Every pet owner understands the responsibility and care that pets require. In addition, pets have sentimental value, with many pets being treated like an extended family member. The growing attachment and sense of care for their pets has made people go to great lengths to ensure the health and well-being of their pets including their nutritional, housing and grooming requirements. Pet owners also want to ensure that pet products and services are cost-effective and do not become a financial burden on them. Several pet lovers have to abandon their pets because they cannot afford the high prices of pet products and other costs associated with taking care of pets.

PETSSIFIED.com will be the first online pet products marketplace where users can negotiate prices for products and services. The platform will provide users with a bidding system that allows them to place a bid on a price that suits their budget. The bidding system will approve/decline the bid based on an automated pricing analysis benchmark.

PERSSIFIED.com will offer the largest variety of pet products brands and services to fulfill the needs of pet owners in USA and Canada. Pet owners can find and order their favorite brands and services from our registered website www.Petssified.com/.

PETSSIFIED.com will be the only online pet products marketplace that utilizes a bidding system to offer the best prices to users. In addition, customers will be able to browse through a diverse catalog of products/services at lowest possible prices in one location. The wide range of pet products will be sourced from various vendors and brands from local and international markets. Moreover, pet stores/retailers can also directly source their supplies from the e-store.

PETSSIFIED.com also facilitates industry participants as a marketing and promotional platform. Service providers and businesses can list as members on the platform to enhance their online web presence and market visibility.

PETSSIFIED.com will guarantee quick order delivery using a dropship model. A complete dropship business model allows us to eliminate our warehousing and inventory management costs by transferring the onus on a fulfillment company. The fulfillment company takes responsibility for maintaining inventory and delivering directly to the customers. Not only does this speed up the delivery process, but it also improves operational efficiency.  

As the pet population is increasing, pet owners require access to affordable pet foods, products, supplies and services. We have the potential to capture a sizeable market share because of our unique bidding system that allows users to purchase products and services within their budgets while also allowing our platform to become a dominant price competitive leader in the market.

US MARKET FOR THE PET INDUSTRY


Most American pet owners consider their pet their best friend, a notion supported by a comparison of the number of pet owners and the increase in pet retail sales: While the number of people living in households with at least one pet and the number of people who have shopped for pet supplies have been consistent over the last few years, consumers have been spending more and more money for their pets, thus boosting pet food retail sales in the United States. Most expenses for cats and dogs in American households are due to vet visits, however Americans like to spoil their pets as well; almost half as much is spent on treats, grooming and toys.

Quantitatively speaking, fish remarkably outnumber all other pets. However, dogs are still Americans’ favorite pets, as they are most prevalent within American households – closely followed by cats. Most Americans who grew up with pets stated that their childhood pet was a dog (again, closely followed by velvet paws). Both dogs and cats are preferably adopted from family members, friends or shelters.




The U.S. pet industry reached $86 billion in 2017 and continues to have a strong growth trajectory, according to a comprehensive new report by Packaged Facts titled U.S. Pet Market Outlook, 2018-2019. While sales of pet products and services rose nearly 5% last year, threats of disruption keep industry players scrambling to adjust to a rapidly shifting market landscape.


In 2017, the e-commerce sales of pet care products grew by about 3.4 billion dollars, while traditional brick-and-mortar stores reported only about 317 million dollars in sales growth. Consumers also seem to be more likely to open marketing emails about pet and animal services than any other kind of marketing email. A recent survey among U.S. consumers found that the number of households to purchase pet products online has increased from about ten thousand in 2014 to nearly 15 thousand in 2016; further evidence of the growing popularity of this online market.



CANADIAN MARKET FOR THE PET INDUSTRY


Strong pet food sales, continued humanization trends, and rising interest from pet owners in non-medical pet services all aligned in 2014 to produce a Canadian pet market with its highest growth in the last five years. A sluggish veterinary services category stood in stark contrast, with its continued decline in visits by pet owners. Continued uptake of premium and super premium products of non-medical pet services will drive sales in the Canadian pet market to $9.2 billion by 2019.



Overall Canada is home to roughly 5.9 million dogs and 7.9 million cats. Nine percent of Canadians owned other types of pets, including fish, birds, small mammals and herptiles. Higher income households ($100,000+) are 21% of the population account for 25% of pet owners in general.Jul 21, 2016

Revenue in the Pet Food segment amounts to US$1,476m in 2018. The market is expected to grow annually by 2.1% (CAGR 2018-2021).

This statistic shows the share of adults who own a pet in Canada as of May 2016, by type. During the survey, 33 percent of the respondents said that they owned at least one dog and 39 percent did not own any pets at all






·     Millennials take pet ownership seriously, creating all kinds of opportunities for brands that know how to reach them. By Mark Burgess.

·     

Household spending on  pets and pet food was at $4.1 billion in 2015, according to Statistics Canada,  with spending on Veterinary and other services at about $3 billion

·       More than half — 52 per cent — of households in this country have a pet, according to the 2015 Canadian Pet Market Outlook prepared by consumer research firm Packaged Facts.

·        While the percentage of homes with pets hasn't really changed, the amount people are willing to shell out for them appears to be on the rise. It's estimated the Canadian pet industry is worth about $7 billion, including food, supplies and services, according to Packaged Facts' most recent report. This is up from $4.5 billion annually almost 15 years ago.

·        Spending on pets and pet food in Canadian households rang in at $4.1 billion in 2015, according to Statistics Canada.

·        On food alone, about $2.2 billion is spent each year, according to Packaged Facts.

·        And approximately 200,000 pets were insured in Canada in 2015, according to the North American Pet Health Insurance Association.

2-Amazon dominates online sales (from Grocers, Walmart, Target)

3-Big Box Pet Stores Aim to Diversify and add to their market lines.

•        Consumer Deal-Seeking Continues

•        E-Commerce / Internet Spurs Top-to-Bottom Market Innovation

•        Internet Drives Sales, Dissolves Channel Boundaries, Automates Tasks, and Brings Pet Parenting to the Next Level

•        Internet/E-commerce Upending Longstanding Retail Dynamics

•        Pet Product Customer Base by Retail Channel


Dog food and cat food have seen 92.2% and 63.2% e-commerce growth, respectively, over the past year. Just over 18% of all dog food sales come from digital shopping, while nearly 13% of consumers turn to the online marketplace when it’s time to feed their felines.  The convenience of automated replenishment as an e-commerce driver in this category because pet owners can schedule deliveries in advance for when supplies are projected to be running low.  Also, pet food is often purchased in large, unwieldy packages that can be a hassle for shoppers to transport after purchasing in a physical store. Having them delivered to their doorstep adds to the draw.  Pet food and supplies are leading shelf-stable’s charge toward the virtual shopping cart.



New Pet Products (a Revenue Generating Line Item) encourages consumers to get the best deal on the market and allow the consumer to feel content with the pricing reduction via an offer.  Once a Product selection is made, the consumer is able to place an OFFER on the Product. The built-in negotiating pricing system determines whether PETSSIFIED will “Accept OFFER, Counter OFFER, or Reject OFFERfrom the Consumer.  The system has built in ceilings and floors for Bid & Offer Management on behalf of PETSSIFIED.com between PETSSIFIED.com and the Consumer.  System algorithms and parameters can be changed at anytime.


A similar negotiation concept is utilized for the C2C Classified listings section for the consumer “seller” who can negotiate directly with their counterpart consumer “buyer” for used product listings. This is a FREE Service offering on the PETSSIFIED.com Platform. 


The Negotiation Process is outlined as follows:

1.         The system will ACCEPT the Consumer Offer “AS IS” if the Offer is made within the pre-determined profit margin for that specific product.   The product is then placed in a cart for purchase at the discounted offer price for the consumer.

2.         The system will “COUNTER” Offer submitted by the Consumer when the placed bid falls below the threshold profit margin and offers the consumer a more acceptable price. The consumer may then either choose to proceed with a higher offer amount or cancel their purchase by not responding to the counteroffer. 

3.        The system may Reject the Offer if the consumer makes an unreasonably low bid and advise the consumer to provide their best offer.

Keys to Success


PETSSIFIED.COM Online Product Marketplace Features

Registration

To use our online product marketplace, users will have to register an account. Account registration only takes a few minutes and requires the user to fill in a form, sharing details about their name, location, address, verify their debit/credit card information and provide details about their pet(s). Registration will allow us to provide users with a more targeted experience, providing suggestions and information about products that would interest them first. For example, someone who owns a cat would be displayed with products and services related to cats. The personalized experience will not only allow the customer to save time and find products faster, but it will also allow us to autofill their delivery information and payment processing so they do not have to do this process every time they want to conduct a transaction.

Registration will also allow us to send notifications and emails to users about promotions and details that may interest them.

Online Product Marketplace

PETSSIFIED.com will have more than 10,000 pet products listed in its e-store from 64 initially selected vendors (pet products manufacturers and distributors) from local and international markets.



We will offer the following pet products:


After selecting a product that the customer wants to purchase, he/she will be taken to the dedicated product pager where they can read more information about the product and its original price. Once satisfied about the product specification, the customer can place an “OFFER” | “BID” for the product.

The automated bidding system will assess whether the suggested price is reasonable based on a pre-determined profit margin benchmark for each product. If the bid is acceptable, the customer will be prompted to approve the transaction and checkout their product. However, if the bid is unacceptable, the system will make a counter-offer to the consumers “Offer”.  If the customer is satisfied with the “Counter Offer” price, he/she can “ACCEPT” the transaction. However, if the customer is not happy with the suggested price, he/she can simply “REJECT” the “Counter Offer” and select another product.


Customers will be allowed to review/rate products based on their experience. A rating system ensures that products are conforming to a certain quality and also provide other users with a basis to make their purchasing decision. Consumers will also enjoy the benefit of having a “Live Chat” feature for assistance in product selection, product knowledge, issue resolution on their orders or transactions, and information during shopping and shipping.


PET Services & PET SERVICE PROVIDERS

Pet service providers can list their services on PETSSIFIED.com. This will be the marketplace to look for variety of negotiable, on-demand and location-based services for pets. Service providers can list their businesses free of cost for the first 24 months, after which, we will charge a monthly fee of $10. This is to provide service providers with room to initiate their services and gain traction on the online product marketplace. Members can include individuals or companies that provide pet services including:


Users can browse through the many service providers that will be listed on the online product marketplace. They can easily connect with the Service Providers to create their own network of Service Providers for the Pet’s needs.  This networking connection of Service Providers increases over time and so does the relationship with the Service Provider.  Similar to purchasing products, users will have the ability to negotiate directly with the Service Provider and place bids on service price. Once a price is determined, the user can schedule the service and visit the service provider.

Process


Classified Listings

Similar to our pricing strategy for service providers, classified ads will be posted free for the first 24 months and will be charged $10 per month after the first 24 months, if the market will bear this charge.  If not, we will continue on a gratuity basis simply connecting pet parents with pet and pet product owners.

ANIMAL SUPPLY CO – one of the largest in the nation of Premium Brand Foods, Care Products for all pets.  Saima attempted to visit the Corporate headquarters in Irving, Texas however, the resources were not available.  Another date is scheduled to meet with this Distributor in the near future in the California distribution warehouse.
