When you have decided that you are going to start up a retail business venture, you will need a wholesale company to supply you with your products. You could be selling vending machine items, Tupperware, or jewelry. You just have to make sure that you have a good product coming from a reliable source. You don't want to work with a company who sends you faulty products or goes out of business two months later.

Therefore, start looking online and see what you come up with. You want a wholesale company that has a credible history. Their products should have documentation of being high sellers. Spending your money and having no one buy your product is going to cause lots of upsets in lots of places. Check out the website of the company. It should tell you how long they have been in business and, perhaps, how they got started.

Your Only Wholesale Company

You can, of course, look at as many wholesale companies as you would like for your business. However, just choosing one will allow you to create a relationship. In addition, it is much easier to keep your orders and bookkeeping straight if you are only using one supplier. When you are running low on an item, you won't have to sit and figure out which company supplies you with it.

Before you choose your wholesale company, give them a call and ask some questions. This is a good idea whether you are using an online company or not. You want to make sure you can get someone on the phone at a moment's notice. If you are using a website and they only have a customer service email address with no phone number, log off and never go back.
