Just wondering if anyone is a member of DirectBuy.
If so isn't their merchandise offered at below MRSP
Would they be a viable wholesaler for good to sell on eBay and the like.
If you are looking at ebay as your market, forget wasting your time with chasing wholesalers, genuine or otherwise, unless you are covering a niche area.
Purchasing at wholesale prices to sell in a wholesale marketplace just doesn't cut it, simply because you are competing against the people you are buying from in a lot of cases, and that's a fight you can't win!
You need lower than wholesale, unless you can bank roll a serious volume purchase, and even then you may just be competitive with low margins.
