Getting Scammed by “Wholesale” Companies Online Claiming to Help “Anyone” to Make Money From Home

Any wholesaler who charges a “fee” either monthly, annually or to sign up for the first time is one to ignore. Wholesalers that stock inventory, have good product, and ship product online in large numbers do not need to charge a fee. They want your business and are happy to provide you with their product if you are a reputable company yourself and ready to start selling online and making money from home.

It is always a good idea to make a simple list on what to look for and what NOT to look for in a reputable Wholesaler and how to tell the difference. When researching Wholesale companies to find the right one for you, don’t waste time and energy with the research, move on and find another company to research when one seems even the slightest bit different. For any online entrepreneur looking to become a drop shipper, the wholesaler is the FOUNDATION of your company.

Any company that would ship out product to just ANYONE “for a fee” probably makes most of their money selling people on the “fee” more than actually doing business shipping product.

Any wholesaler who charges a “fee” at all, either monthly or annually to sign up for the first time is the first one to avoid like the plague. Wholesalers that stock inventory, have good product, and ship in large numbers do NOT need to charge a fee.

They want your business and are happy to provide you with their product if you are a reputable company yourself. Any company that would ship out product to just ANYONE “for a fee” probably makes most of their money selling people on the “fee” more than actually doing business shipping product.

There are also wholesalers out there who stock a “huge variety” of different types of products at a low cost and have no rhyme or reason as to the types of products they are carrying. Wholesalers should specialize as much as any good eBay Store should specialize in one industry.

If the wholesaler ships kitchen gadgets as well as shoes and electronics, how do you, the eBayer placing your business in their hands, how do you know that they are going to have a continuous supply of that item, how do you know they won’t go out of stock, discontinue an item or have any product knowledge or warranties on such product when you the eBayer need them.

Wholesalers that accept anyone and will ship their product out to people without first having you fill out a credit application and business information. If a Wholesale company decides they will ship out to you just because you asked…it is time to question.

A reputable company will need to see your business information and have signatures on file for things such as your fed tax id# and resale permit numbers and business license. If a company wants to ship out product to your customers with their name on it, they will need to have this information for their own as well as your tax purposes and legal liabilities.

Any online wholesale company that mass market their wholesale site and product through TV infomercials or through online methods are just looking for new people to sell their product too hard. It is obvious why you don’t want to use these companies. Just about anybody can, will and trust me the market is already absolutely over saturated with this same product from the same suckers trying to sell it online and beat each others price.

Good luck to them all! Do some research on eBay and you are bound to find any of these products for sale at a price that can barely make them profits much less build a business. That is why it is worth the time and efforts to build your eBay or online business right and make sure that your wholesaler, or the backbone of your company, be a good one.
