OK, Im new here. Have a question about the ones only listed as wholesalers. On their site there is a wholesale price. Does this mean thats the price you have to pay or can you get even better prices?

Some suppliers have better prices on quantity, unadvertised specials for return customers, etc. In most cases, when you're done browsing and are actually ready to buy, you might be suprised what price you can get on a given lot, especially if you have more than one supplier selling the same thing.

Other suppliers, it's WYSIWYG when it comes to prices.

Just to follow on from Frank,

No matter what prices are advertised, it's always better to call and talk to someone about the prices and volume. Tell them your requirements and see what they can do for you based around those.

Never just accept an advertised price for wholesale!

This is actually very common among many newbies to online selling, when they visit supplier sites they immediately assume that the posted price is the final wholesale price and end up complaining that our wholesalers here don't offer true wholesale prices which is quite contrary.

I would take Marc's advise to heart, contact the supplier you are interested in doing business with. You will not lose anything by sending an email or calling the supplier to inquire further, you actually have more to gain if you do this :) Not only will you find out what the final wholesale prices are but you will also get to know the supplier more and in a way tell if they really are suited to your needs.

All the best :)
