Hey All,
I'm having some trouble getting a supplier for my eBay store. I just want to sell some golf equipment, but in contacting these wholesellers, they either respond and don't have what I am looking for. Or they don't answer, because there requirements for resellers are way to high for someone trying to earn some extra cash from home. My question is what should I do? Am I going about it the wrong way? Or do I just need to be patient? Any advice is appreciated!

Hi Jared,

Caught between a rick and a hard place. You'll find many brand wholesalers in particular or manufacturers themselves will not supply to an eBay business or similar because because of the environment. So they are essentially protecting the value of their product and therefore able to maintain a strong offline sales avenue.

It's really a case of just keep trying I would suggest. Maybe try to steer away from the branded gear that is protected and look at unbranded alternatives which won't have the same level of market protection.
