Learn more about selling meat

  • Meat is a highly perishable product, so you must set up adequate storage conditions first. You can upload photos of raw or cooked meat pictures and specify vital information like weight, type, portion, and type of processing to boost sales on your Shopify store. You will need to include dry ice when shipping your frozen meat to customers.

  • You can start selling meat on Shopify with a few clicks and take advantage of the platform’s free, flexible, and automatic carrier shipping rates. With Shopify’s app, you can send and receive orders seamlessly via your phone. Plus, there’s no limit to the kinds of meat you can sell on Shopify—as long as they're legal in your region.

  • Definitely! You can set up a virtual meat market on Shopify from a pool of over 80 professional themes and templates and with help from web design experts. Shopify also allows your customers to buy meat online and pick it up at your physical meat store. With Shopify’s website hosting prowess, your customers are sure to enjoy seamless navigation, aesthetic display, and airtight cybersecurity.

  • As a general rule of thumb, you should price meat by weight and you can easily do that with a scale. The type of meat will also determine its price; processed meat costs more than raw meat, and turkey will command a higher price than beef. The best practice for pricing meat is to analyze your competitors and calculate your costs using Shopify’s free profit margin calculator.

  • Butcher Box is an online subscription service that delivers meat and fish to customers using Shopify.
