Hi, while looking for a supplier of KitchenAid Mixers to sell on ebay in Australia I came across Nisbets on Salehoo. Judging by the powerseller review, they seem like a really great wholesale company.
I just had a question I was hoping someone could help me with. The powerseller review said in order to get their stock at wholesale prices, you would need a sales channel set up (either a retail store or an e-commerce store). But further into the review it also says Nisbets is fine with you selling their products on ebay.
So I'm just wondering if I contact this company, whether they will be ok with me just being an ebay seller?? Or are they more likely to go for an established retail or e-commerce store, which happens to also dabble in ebay??
Thanks,
Heidi

Hi jhmcivorinternational,

I got in touch with Powerseller SirLancelot for clarification in line with his review, and I will also be contacting the supplier. I will be updating this post as soon as I receive advice.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

You're most welcome, jhmcivorinternational :) Here's a reply from Powerseller SirLancelot -

Hello,

I believe this company would be just fine with someone being an eBay only reseller (as long as you can provide proof of being a business). They will want to know your ABN number and registered ABN name. If you aren't an official business yet, and let them know your're an eBay reseller interested in getting set-up then you probably won't get far. When I contacted them they said it would be fine to resell on eBay, Amazon or even Facebook (as long as you're a business). Of course, companies sometimes change their policy towards their attitude about reselling on eBay/Amazon but based on my experience with them previously, I think eBay only resellers would be welcome.

I hope that helps to clarify but if there is more information I can provide, just let me know :)

Hi jhmcivorinternational,

I am the one who wrote the initial review and wanted to add a few additional thoughts for you:

First, I would deal directly with Nikki who handles wholesale inquiries:

Nikki Spratt
Wholesale Business
Development Manager
Nisbets Australia Pty Ltd

Australia Head Office & Distribution Centre
Unit 2, 34-38 Anzac Avenue
Smeaton Grange NSW 2567

m: 0405 056 097
p: 1300 225 960
f: 02 4648 7801
e: nspratt@nisbets.com.au
w: www.nisbets.com.au

If you're comfortable calling, I think that is normally the best way to express an interest. Otherwise, emailing them would be fine.

Then they will supply a distributor inquiry form for you to complete. On the form you will provide your business information and things like where you plan to sell their products, expected annual sales and so forth. If you're brand new to selling on eBay then you'll probably want to have a bit of a plan put together as to how you plan on building your business that way. If you're established then you can share the success you've already had and how you'd like to add their products as well.

Unless they've changed in the past several months, I think you'll find they're a good company to work with :)

Have fun, thanks for your questions and I wish you much success!

Lance
