There are no
requirements or restrictions on how many of your alpacas you can list on
AlpacaNation. However we encourage you to list
them all and categorized the appropriately.
There have been many instances where a farm listed
an animal as part of their "Foundation Herd" and the
information in that listing is what helped close the
sale on a "For Sale" listing. By putting your
entire herd on-line, you provide prospective buyers
with much more complete information, which gives
them more confidence to buy from your breeding
program. By contrast, farms that only list a
small portion of their herd, do not perform as well,
due to the lack of breadth of information about
their overall breeding program.
membership fee is based on the total number of
animals in your herd, NOT the number of listings you
plan to create. We want farms to feel free to
put ALL of their animals on AlpacaNation, not just
the ones they want to sell. More complete herd
information, results in more sales!
We are frequently asked if pricing discounts can be arranged when a member
plans to list only a fraction of their herd on the site. This question is
asked by both the smallest and the largest breeders.
AlpacaNation realizes that many breeders do not wish to sell all of their
alpacas; many breeders keep a core herd and own guard alpacas. These factors have already been incorporated into AlpacaNation's
membership fee. Pricing discounts are not currently available.
Pricing for Boarded or Brokered Animals
If your herd includes animals that are boarded or brokered by your
farm and you do not intend to list them on AlpacaNation, then you do not
have to include these animals in your herd count. However, if you do
intend to list alpacas on AlpacaNation that
you board or broker, then you must include the total animals owned, boarded or
brokered by your farm in your herd count.
