Before you start selling your genetics, you will need to understand that it may take some effort getting sales especially if you are new to selling cannabis seeds/clones. Vendors who have been around for years will be recognized by many growers and therefore receive more sales. Whereas someone who is just starting off for example might have a tougher time selling cannabis seeds in general until they become a bit more known. Seed Canary offers those of you who are new to selling seeds/clones an opportunity to become recognized and receive sales, however it may take effort before you start seeing results.

Ship Orders on time
When you receive an order from a customer, we recommend that you ship that order out within 1-3 days after the order was placed. This is a “standard” when ordering anything online, as you shouldn’t have to wait more than 3 days to hear that your order was shipped (If Possible). We understand that life events happen and might require shipping out an order a bit later than expected. But we ask that if you are unable to ship out an order within 3 days to please contact us (Seed Canary) or the customer directly to inform them of the delay. Customers who feel the need to check on their order are unlikely to purchase from that specific vendor again.
