Introduction

Bulksupplements.com is to the health supplements market what Amazon.com is to the general eCommerce industry. In other words, it’s a one-stop-shop for all kinds of supplements ranging from skin care and beauty products to weight loss and nootropics. Unlike other nootropic vendors, though, this Nevada-based company supplies products in powder form as opposed to having them in capsules. So, there is no doubt that this company is a tad different from your average vendor out there. But is Bulk Supplement worth the trust?


About Bulk Supplements

Located in Henderson, Nevada, this company is renowned for its wide range of nutritional supplements. In fact, they claim to stock more than 400 ingredients, all of which are supplied in powder form. What’s more? The company claims to operate within the FDA regulations and proudly share their FDA registration number on their website.

Not much information is available about the firm’s management although we know that they’re affiliated with Hard Eight Nutrition LLC. All we know is that they have over 40 full-time employees and that they operate in cGMP and FDA-registered facilities. Also, they have been in business for 7 years or so, going by their BBB profile where they have a commendable B+ rating.

However, they so far seem to have done a stellar job of setting themselves apart as a brand that can be trusted.

Quality Assurance

One of the reasons why this company has remained dominant is the fact they have embraced third-party testing of their products. That said, they don’t openly publish their COAs next to the products. So you’d need to get in touch with them if you need to get your product’s COA.

To this end, we’d say that Bulk Supplements seems to be suffering from the Big Boy Company mindset. That’s probably why they don’t freely provide such documents on their website despite this having been the trend in the greater nootropic market.

Customer Support

Whether you want to drop an email query or raise a question via social media or phone, Bulksupplements has got you covered. On top of that, if you want to make some quick inquiries, you only need to click on the orange button found on the bottom of their site.

Unfortunately, their customer support team isn’t available round the clock. They’re typically operation from 7:30 am to 3:45 pm PST. Unlike your average online supplements vendor, they are active throughout the 7 days of the week.

On a scale of 10, we’d give their customer service team a well-deserved 9. They always respond to queries in good time and do so in a helpful manner. The only reason they didn’t get a 10 is that they are not available round the clock.

The Marketing Model

Who needs an overly aggressive marketing campaign when you have a strong brand? Bulk Supplements so far seems focused on managing its large and diverse market. Their marketing approach is at the moment quite laid-back although they have a significant social media presence.

Besides that, they have a thriving blogging community where they regularly share free and shareable advice. In our view, this is quite a good community outreach approach as it enables them to educate the masses instead of just pushing products down their throats.

And indeed, an informed customer is likely to be more loyal and they’re also likely to buy more.

Pricing

Their supplements are reasonably priced. For instance, they sell a 100g pack of Bacopa Monnieri for $18.96. That’s well within the average market range.

Shipping & Returns

All orders made to the company are shipped for free. Please note that all local US orders valued at $49 or more qualify for free shipping. In regards to their return policy, the company doesn’t accept opened items. So, there is no opportunity for you to use the product to decide whether it works for you or not.

What’s more? You’ll be responsible for the cost of re-shipping the product if, for any reason, you want to claim a refund. The claim has to be lodged within 30 days of the item’s shipping date.

Final Thoughts

Bulk Supplements is a trustworthy vendor to buy nootropics from. They have built a strong brand for the years they’ve been around. Most importantly, they have a wide array of supplements to choose from.

They, however, aren’t specialized in nootropic supply. We didn’t find any stacks on their list as well. So, unless you’re looking for ingredients to make some DIY stacks, this would be a pretty limiting place to shop from.
