Re: UPC and insurance question
Seems like a big step to take. Until you have enough honey to keep at least one pound jars and 12 oz. honeybears on the shelf all year round the cost of establishing a UPC Code Certificate and making it part of your label is somewhat costly. I forget exactly how much doing so initially cost me, $150.00 maybe, but it costs me something like $75.00 per year to maintain my Company Prefix.
If you don't keep a shelf space filled w/ your honey it won't be there the next time you get around to making a delivery the next year. Maybe the store you are dealing w/ will do that for you. Maybe not.
But if they would then it seems to me like they would be willing to forego the bar code. They probably just want to make direct store delivery standard and easy on the Backdoor Manager.
If you do sell honey to this store, try to get them to pay you when you deliver. Otherwise it's going to be as much as three week to a month before you will see your money. Ain't nothing more satisfying than cash in hand upon delivery.
