Hi everyone!

I am trying to start an online store but I can never find any buyers. By buyers I mean wholesale buyers because my prices resemble wholesale prices. Any suggestions on where to find them?

Where are you starting the store, and when you say Wholesale buyers, how and where are you marketing the store?

For a wholesale market I would be suggesting that you developed your own site, and not used eBay, far more professional doing it that way.

Of course the big issue is driving wholesale traffic to your site, never simple and usually quite expensive. SaleHoo is the obvious place to start offering wholesale goods so you should make application to become an authorised seller (completely free)

Depending on what your stock profile is, check out website affiliate marketing avenues as well. Do the usual Social Site networking, although I doubt it would be that effective for wholesale, but non the less marketing is all about maximising your exposure so those types of avenues shouldn't be overlooked.

That's a start at least : )

Yes, iamdog, that is one of our requirements and for consistency we try our best to adhere to our requirements.

You are open to re-apply once your site has been online for at least 2 years.

In the meantime, I think you should consider fudjj's suggestion on starting your own site - work on it make it interesting, fill it with topnotch products with great customer support! And I'm sure in no time you'll find that buyers are finding their way to your site just fine :)

All the best!

It is a common question that a lot of people are asking.
Business is very hard at the beginning, the customers don't trust you and the quality of your products, what you need to is keeping on doing your business and advertising.
Once people buy your goods and find you have good quality and service, they will be your long term customers.
Webstore or ebay store is ok i think.
