Getting Wholesale Distributors Business

Aug 17, 2007
Having a wholesale business is not for everyone. For me the idea of making a living from the comfort of my own home was the selling point. Running an online whole sale business has its advantages and disadvantages, and unfortunately not many wholesale sources will prepare you for the realities. I have been in the wholesale business for many years now, selling to various online stores and eBay. In early 2005 I opened up my own business. On a daily basis current clients and customers asked me questions about the process; three questions came up time after time.

Before selling on the Internet I have to have a tax Id or re-selling license right? Not necessarily. As an entrepreneur myself it disturbs me to see so many rising entrepreneurs taken in by this untruth. There are a lot of companies that will let you sell their full inventory of tangible merchandise on the Internet free of charge. As do many distributors, wholesalers and liquidation centers.

When I first started out I did not have a Tax ID or Re-selling License. That did not stop me from raking in the money online. Large corporations that are moving up in search engine ladders want to secure their spots and by leading you to believe you have to have a Tax ID or Re-selling License they prevent you from competing against them. In order to comply with certain tax laws some states will require you to be registered once meeting a certain total in sales. You do not want to get in trouble with Uncle Sam please confirm with your local state government before making 100,000.

What do I need to do to start my own online mini-mall? Many online courses will claim to have the answers you need. You could waste thousands of dollars and precious time looking for the right answer, like I did when first starting out. The truth is not as complicated as you may have been lead to believe, selling online is simple. You can make a living online from the sell of tangible items on eBay or you own mini-mall. Either way you have the potential to make thousands of dollars a month. When starting with a low budget its important to get suggestions from trusted entrepreneurs in the business that have already tested facts. The most important advice I can give you is- to stay focused, have a well thought out complete business plan and take action!

Wow, sounds simple is that it? Not just yet. Your plan of attack is just the first step you now need to have the right connections and resources. Remember the goal is to get the best advice and the highest market prices for your items. The easiest way to achieve this is to find a wholesale list and focus on finding the correct distributors or distributor channels to get your tangible items or drop shipping secured. That is all for today, continue visiting my lessons to learn more about how to choose the correct distributor channels to make money from your very first moment of your retail ventures.
