Q. How much does it cost to get started?
A. The minimum opening order is about $7,500 CAD and a dealer will need funds for advertising, first month rent and security deposit, and an ability to reinvest some early profits. The dealers most likely to start strong usually have access to at least $15,000 CAD, whether in cash or credit cards, or other means.
Q. Does Mattress By Appointment offer financial assistance to help me get started right away?
A. Mattress By Appointment does not offer financing, but you can try applying with gopeer at gopeer.ca or similar funding website offerings.

Q. How much time should I expect to spend on this business?
A. As they say… ‘you get out of it what you put into it’! Dealers who want to maximize profits will work full time in the business and should plan on spending 35 hours a week or more especially for the first couple of months as you become familiar with the process and our business manual.
Q. What kind of profit can I expect to earn per sale?
A. Conservative estimates based on data from existing North American dealers are $150 USD* profit per sale, so approximately $195 CAD*. However, many dealers enjoy much larger average profits per transaction well above that amount. Depending on the transaction, you can earn in excess of $1,000 CAD* from a single sale.
