How Do I Add My Business Contact Info?
NOTE: It's important to add your business's contact information to your profile, so that our team may direct any customer inquiries to the right place.
Navigate to the Business Info tab on the Vendor homepage, and scroll down to the bottom to include a Phone Number, Email, and other contact information.
We also recommend adding descriptive information about your business:
Hours of operation
Shipping and Sales tax policies
The information you provide in the Business Info tab will be shown to customers shopping on Vetcove in the form of a profile page. The more information that you submit, the more likely a clinic will be to purchase your products. In particular, clinics like to know the specifics of your return policy, as well as what kind of shipping and sales tax you collect.
If you are not licensed to sell your products in specific states, you can prevent clinics from those states from purchasing your products here as well. Look for the "States you cannot ship to" section.
Next, you'll want to add your products, shipping options and payment info. See these articles for more information:
Once you are ready for your account and products to go live and be visible to clinics, head to your Overview page to review your profile one last time. You'll be able to see a profile rating on the right hand side of the dashboard, as well as any outstanding tasks in your profile you may want to add in before launching. 🚀
