I don't know anything about online stores, but if you do both on site/local sales and online sales(shipping), then advertise every where: CL other sites/forums, etc (here included), i'm sure you will get some business coming to your future business. Price should be competitive with other sellers around you(I think fresh longans range from $1-$5 /lbs retail? and whole sale may be a bit less, depending on crop availability that year and how much they buy(wholesale). But, just don't charge anything like how lycheeonline prices theirs, $14-$20/lb
I guess that works for some, but not all people/consumers will agree to that price range.
Just my .02
A neighbor of mine had and early crop (late June) and was getting mid $60's for 20lb boxes wholesale. Now in peak season, they are going for $20 for a 20lb box wholesale if they take them at all. I expect the later October/November crop will get a good price.
[/quote]Ya, like everything else, when it's an early crop,you can charge a higher price, but in peak season, it will go down drastically.
Ya, the late season should get a good price than the peak season, but doubt it will be as high is the early crop season.
