Building Ecommerce With A Wholesale Directory - Articles Surfing

Wholesale directories are listings that have products in bulk at up to 80% off the retail price. Learn how to search for ones without being ripped off.

Wholesale directories also double up as goldmines on the Internet. With a light bulk or drop ship directory, users have access to products at discount prices that could earn them steady profit at EBay auctions. However, there is the misconception that wholesale directories are easy to come by. Novices proclaim Google as God's gift to man when it comes to free wholesale directory, believing two clicks of the mouse will lead them to Ipod wholesalers. This couldn*t be further from the truth.

For starters, legit drop ship directories cost money. This information is simply too valuable to pass along for free and EBay auctioneers may spend months looking for a reputable dealer. In Spain's version of EBay, there are only one or two retailers who sell authentic Armani watches. This has allowed them to *corner* the Armani watch market in Spain. You can bet a free wholesale or drop ship directory didn*t lead them to that! Plus, many directories of wholesale distributors are scams with plenty of middlemen and suppliers that want a piece of the action. It is a very impractical way to start a new business.

One of the best ways to find a light bulk wholesale directory is to buy a directory from a reputable company. Legit wholesale directories have staff that ensure that companies behind the product are real and not scams. Plus, these wholesale directories come with a guarantee that states that all suppliers in the directory are real. In the past, scams have arisen from companies posing as drop shipping agents which give them the unfortunate title of middleman. With outrageously monthly fees and a cut into profits from the suppliers, all you will get in return is a lower margin.

Another folly of many wholesale directories and drop shipping directories are the numerous scammers that want to redirect people to one wholesale person. 3884 buying the same Balenciaga handbags from the same wholesale person and flipping them on EBay would generate too much competition and leave the scammer ahead. A real wholesale product directory has many suppliers that pay their own overhead and rent warehouses to ship products out. This might mean a customer service staff is not far behind. Drop ship agents should be avoided if you see them on a Google search engine results page outright. Beware of EBay auctions that list supplier lists with the *best suppliers* as well. To conclude, true wholesale directories take some time to locate, which makes you pull ahead of the competition in the end when you finally find a legit one.
