      How to find authorized DC suppliers UK

      Hey I am looking for authorized DC suppliers in the UK. I have been reading the forums for awhile and I hope I am posting in the right place.

      I want to find DC suppliers that have DC shoes, shirts, stickers, bags, hats…but I’m pretty new to trading. I read on another thread that I should use an authorized DC wholesaler to avoid counterfeit items.

      How do I find an authorized DC supplier in the UK?

      Glad to see you are doing your research about DC products before just diving in to the wholesale world.

      Using an authorised DC supplier is the best way to avoid counterfeit issues. Not only are counterfeits illegal but they are poorly made and just makes you look bad as a seller.

      You can contact DC directly and find a list of their suppliers. Going direct to the source helps you in more ways than one:

      • cuts out the middlemen and protect your profit
      • Ensures you are getting a high quality product
      • Gives you access to more DC merchandise

      Since you want to sell a range of DC items like stickers and skate shoes, contacting DC is even better. Sometimes it can be difficult to find a dealer that has every single item you want to sell.

      Thanks for the suggestion. Like I said, I’m pretty new to this so how would I contact DC? What should I say? Do I need to be ready to purchase before I contact a DC supplier?

      When you contact DC you can simply send an email. Keep the email professional.

      • Ask DC if they have a list of authorised distributors
      • Does DC allow direct orders (as in straight from DC without a distributor)
      • Tell them a little bit about your business

      o Name, contact
      o What size of order you expect to need
      o What products you are looking for

      When you email DC you don’t have to give definitive numbers. Ranges are good for item orders.

      Just show them you know what you are talking about and not some kid looking for a discount on a pair of shoes.

      It’s good to have money to make a purchase, but that doesn’t mean you have to buy that day. Suppliers always hear stories about “wanting to buy in a few months,” show the DC supplier you are serious.

      Hopefully I will be able to work directly with DC and that will save me a lot of headaches I’m sure! Thanks for your help
