Thread: The Future of Wholesale Forum

The Future of Wholesale Forum
So, now that you’ve discovered WholesaleForum, you’re highly interested in it. You’ve browsed the forum and it seems like a great place to learn more. But what’s the next move?
Let me break it down for you. People use WholesaleForum for two reasons: either for educational reasons, or for reselling goods. Both options are perfectly fine, obviously – just do what feels right. Pretty soon you’ll start to see products being sold in bulk, say at a minimum 250 items. This is pretty standard for your first buy, but not so much for the average consumer. A lot of products are even sold separately; I just want to let you know that fact right from the start.
If you see a verified WholesaleForum seller that hits close to home, the next step is to choose which one is best. There’s going to be a lot of resellers in the forum offering all sorts of products, so conducting due diligence on your part is key. WholesaleForum is a marketplace, not an e-commerce store. We don’t really sell goods ourselves; we just create a place to bring together foreign manufacturers and worldwide buyers.

Keep in mind that you can also contact each forum seller. I highly recommend you do this just to get the hang of the process. The more questions you ask about their product, the more answers you get back to make sure you know what you’re getting, and thus there won’t be any disappointments. Establishing a relationship with forum sellers is a crucial part of getting the most out of WholesaleForum. If you have a credible relationship with a forum seller, you know you can give them more credit to get the order through and be of sound quality.
OK, let’s assume you’ve finally found a product that caught your eye and they're a verified forum seller, and you’re going to buy from them. What’s the most convenient way to pay for the order? There are a bunch of ways, depending on what’s the most convenient for you.
Remember that you’re payments will go through WholesaleForum, and not directly to the seller. We then send the money to the seller after you’ve received your order and you’re happy with it. If a forum seller asks for you to send money directly to them, contact us right away.
We don’t want your first payments to go directly to the seller, an extra measure of safety to protect everyone. If you went ahead and sent your payment directly to a seller, we wouldn’t have any way to recover your hard-earned cash. It’s all about the community helping the community.
How does shipping fit into the picture? Most of the goods on WholesaleForum will already come with free shipping. If you’re just buying sample orders for yourself, then you can give them your home address or whatever feels comfortable with you. If you’re a forum seller, maybe you should send a small batch to your customer with free shipping. I would highly advise you to do this just the first few times so you build up a sense of legitimacy and reliability. If you resell a bad product, it’s not going to look good on your forum reputation.
Remember, it’s all about building great relationships with great people. It’s wise to start with humble orders, and then gradually increase the amount after getting used to each other.
It doesn’t matter if you’re just a casual reader or you want to resell on WholesaleForum, this is the way to go about the entire transaction. If you have any other questions, just reply to this post and we’ll answer your question publicly. If you’re a seasoned pro, why don’t you add your own ideas on how to better the process?How a New Online Retailer Made Over 3 million Sales in 1yr With These Sources
