As someone who is just starting out, what should I do when a supplier is asking for non-existing information such as company website, years in business, annual revenue, trade references, federal ID number, etc.? It seems impossible to leave these blank on a wholesale application without failing the initial qualifying process.
Any insight would be helpful. Thank you for your time.
Frank and iFunCity have been you useful tips. Just fill up the application with the information that you have and submit it. Many suppliers will ask for those kinds of information as security on their part - That you are indeed serious about doing business with them. Like iFunCity mentioned they get a lot of inquiries so to avoid wasting time and ensuring that all their customers' inquiries are addressed many suppliers may opt to pre-screen their customers.
Should you need help in locating additional suppliers, please feel free to let us know :)
