GFWs Western Bobcat marketing Program
« on: September 26, 2020, 03:26:00 PM »
Well; what do you think about this?

https://www.gfwco.com/

From Bryce at Groenewold,,
Here is how the process will work
1: ship your western cats to GFW with name address phone number and license number
2: we will put additional tag on each skin to identify back to trapper
3: once we get enough quantity we will apply cites and ship skins to Europe
4: once skins arrive to Europe I will dress all of the skins. (This is for your best interest as once skins are dressed with brightener the cats look clearer and better) dressing skins takes around 20 days
5: we will lot the skins by size, color, grade, etc.
6: the buyers will be informed the skins are ready
7: buyers will come to check skins
8: once skins are sold and GFW has been paid. We will send you your check with your grades and prices the skins sold for

I have spoke with many good western bobcat customers over the last few months throughout Europe and they are excited about this new process. Dressed ready available skins close to the customer is how we feel the future of this business will be. We are doing it on many items now in China as well.

Better bobcats are one of the few items that is still in good demand in this industry. I canít set the market prices but my job will be to get you the most money for wherever the market is. My goal with this entire program is to put these skins in the hands of the right people who really need them. Our service and marketing method is top notch!

I understand that GFW finances the  dressing and it is deducted so likely near doubles the cost to the trapper?

So after the cost of dressing are you going to make enough money for it to be worth it?

That is the question. Certainly not on a lower priced cat. I guess you are gambling on how valuable your cat is.

So you have to make sure you have the highest quality cats to make it worth it. But is there any other options to sell fur?

No percentage, It is flat rate, $25 plus whatever the dressing cost. Just depends on whether he can sell them at a better price. It is a gamble and just to be clear I am not endorsing it. I saw it on another site and thought it worth talking about.

It's new marketing ideas like this that we need.
I hope it works out well, and can be used to market other quality skins in the future.
