      Irish Businessman Wants to Start Wholesale Business - Need Help and Tips to Start Up a Business

      Hi all,

      I am Philip. I'm looking to set up my wholesale company in Ireland, I need a lot of help around buyers outside Ireland as it's out of my comfort zone. I've worked in retail for 10 years and have managed large supermarkets such as Tesco snd Superquinn. Now the time has come where I'm looking to go on my own.

      Any help would be great.

      Many thanks

      Hi Philip,

      If you want to sell wholesale, it is imperative that you locate real manufacturers. If you look at wholesale suppliers in China, prices may look attractive, but you must remember that they are buying from the manufacturers and adding their margin.

      Finding real manufacturers on the popular B2B sourcing platforms is quite difficult, because they allow suppliers to make claims to being manufacturers when in reality they are traders or wholesalers.

      I recommend a small handful of the sourcing platforms where the bona fides of suppliers have been subjected to real checks, compared to the minimal "verification" process used by most sites. Verified suppliers on almost all sites have simply been found to actually exist - nothing more.
      To learn safe overseas sourcing and how to buy small (or large) quantities at best prices see→ http://provenchinasourcing.comLearn to find genuine manufacturers and negotiate small orders at prices way below what wholesalers charge.
