So I just made my second purchase from gaia. I was informed in the general discussion that I should not mention this vendor in my post due to them not being approved. My question is , why are they not an approved vendor? I read the criteria which one/ones did they not meet?
I had a pretty decent first order from them. Hoping for the second to be better. I've heard of a lot of people ordering from them. I'm just wondering what it takes to get on the approved vendors list and why gaia would not meet the criteria.

Vendors contact the website to apply. Gaia may not have an interest in this website list. They may simply not have the time or inclination. Having to lab test every batch, meet cGMP guidelines, use specific types of sealing bags, etc is expensive and time consuming. There are several steps taken from AFTER the product gets to the ILK vendor, before it can be sold. You’ll notice it’s less expensive to shop with Gaia, as the vendors here need to invest MUCH MORE $$ money and time delays for safety checking than a high volume distributor.

I would ask them. They are tight with this website and the approved vendors. They do such high volume sales, it is probably just a practical business decision. Not EVERY VENDOR is interested in being listed on ILK.
