      Dvd Suppliers

      Hi, I have been searching for a wholesale supplier for new / newish dvds. I have sourced a few companies selling dvds & they are all selling the same dvds as each other & they are all quite old dvds & also dvds that would not be of much interest to most people. I was just wondering if anyone had details of a wholesaler that supplies new / newish release dvds?

      Thanks, any help would be much appreciated. U.S. & U.K. wholesalers preferred.

      Hi John,

      Welcome to Wholesale Forum

      This is the rundown on DVDs:

      1. Unless you have a very large buying power, an offshore basis (Guernsey, Jersey, Luxembourg), and a way to shift stock very quickly, you will struggle to make any money from new release DVDs. The likes of Amazon.co.uk, TheHut.co.uk et al have all set up basis offshore, because importing sub. 18 shipments from outside the EU to the UK is VAT and import duty exempt. In addition, all major UK supermarkets use DVDs as loss leaders to attract customers through the door.

      2. If your budget is limited, here are some options:

      - Buy second hand DVDs; this is how some of the online DVD resellers are turning a profit today;

      - Look for arbitrage opportunities, for example buy from the US for resale in the UK. Bear in mind that some DVDs and Blu Rays are restricted by region. Unless your customers have a region free DVD / Blu Ray player, they will be unable to play a disc that has embedded regional restrictions.

      - Consider focusing on Blu Rays instead of DVDs. Blu Rays' demand is growing significantly more than the demand for DVDs. Consider focusing on the latest technologies (ie 3D Blu Ray titles; titles are in short supply at the moment, and there are many arbitrage opportunities right now).

      - Focus on old releases, identify a niche, and target that niche through focused marketing efforts.

      For an extensive list of legitimate DVD suppliers and authorized distributors try the following:

      UK:
      Dvds and Blu Ray Wholesale Suppliers in UK - Wholesale Dvd & Blu Ray Directory
      UK Dvds Suppliers

      US:
      United States Dvds and Blu Ray Wholesale Suppliers - American Wholesale Dvd & Blu Ray Directory
      International Dvds Suppliers
