Wholesalers and wholesale products, will be on the minds of many more people these days than they were, even one year ago.
It is a sign of the times, and as we all know, the times are looking rather grim. But that is exactly why Joe public is searching for wholesalers and wholesale products.
Many more people are looking to the Internet with thoughts of making a bit of extra cash to offset the cost of living and some are thinking more along the lines of job security, or the lack of it, and considering the possibilities for self employment.
What better time could there be, for hunting down those wholesalers, who will deal with the little guy, who doesn’t have much capital to invest?
It is a widely held misconception that if you can not afford to pay for a truckload of goods, you are out of the picture, where obtaining wholesale products is concerned. It is true that most genuine wholesalers will generally not deal with you unless you have thousands to spend. These are the wholesalers who supply the large retail shops etc, and they do not make much money on each item sold. Therefore the only way they can make it worth their while is by selling in huge quantities per order.
But the Internet has been steadily impressing itself upon many wholesalers, and several have now become members of wholesalers collectives. I am not talking about wholesale directories here. You need only go to eBay in order to find wholesale directories that will cost a few quid and turn out to be utterly useless to you. Wholesale spices
No, the collectives I am talking about are made up of genuine wholesalers, wholesalers who have joined reputable companies, and who specifically cater to individuals and small businesses who don’t have shed loads of capital.
You can read more about some of these collectives if you visit the link below. You need to know who to deal with and in some cases, who to steer clear of. There is always an element of risk when dealing with wholesalers for the first time and I cannot emphasize enough, the necessity to do a proper investigation, as to their legitimacy.
Luckily, the more reputable wholesalers collectives agencies, will vet wholesalers before allowing them to register and start selling to their subscribed buyers.
However, even some of these ‘alleged’ agencies are not what they appear to be, and here again, it is important to know who you are dealing with. Scammers are always on the lookout for the gullible punter and they may even have quite good websites that give the impression that they are genuine. In fact, they might well be nothing other than a middle-man, pretending to be a wholesaler or a group of wholesalers. All they do is take your money, only to order the items you want, from genuine wholesalers at a lower price than you are paying them. Yes, you will probably get the goods, but there will be little or no profit in it for you when it’s time to sell.
Not only will you not be dealing with genuine wholesalers, but you will have wasted your time investing in goods that make a profit for a sneaky parasite, and leave crumbs for you.
The good news is that when you sign up with a reputable wholesalers agency, you will be getting genuine wholesale products from genuine wholesalers – many of whom have been vetted and have very positive feedback from established buyers.
