      Making sure my first wholesale purchase is legit

      Hello forum,

      Here's the issue. I am presently dealing with a company that refuses to accept credit card payments, which worries me because their only other stated option is a bank wire transfer. My concern is figuring out a way to avoid getting scammed. How can I ensure that I receive the product.

      Information about the distributor:

      Based out of the UK.
      Only accepts bank wire transfers for international payments.
      Found the company via esources which I have signed up for (has 23 favourites by other users.)
      Requires I give the letter head of my company name.
      Giving your VAT is only needed if you live in the UK.

      So overall can I trust all sources on esources? And is their verification process a factor which determines whether or not I can trust the company not to run off with my money?

      My initial purchase will be around 1500 Dollars. Please everyone on this forum provide any information which will help ensure that I receive my products.

      Hi and Welcome to Wholesale Forum

      Suppliers listed on esources go through many more checks than suppliers listed on free directories. In that sense you are safe, plus you can ask esources support to share their verification data. Also you can ask here, however we would need to know the company name first.
