Aquabid has gorgeous females, shipping is pricey though. No female comes ready to breed, you have to condition her your own self. Look up conditioning.

Actually I think some of them ARE breeding ready. I don't mean that you just dump them into the spawning tank the minute you ge them. lol They would need some time to settle down and de stress after shipping.

Even if they were sold "spawn ready" you would still have to let them settle for at least a week and basically condition them during that time... Shipping is especially stressful on a fish. The only way to get a spawn ready betta would be to buy one from a local breeder who keeps their females in breeding condition all the time...
