Hi Maupd, and welcome to SaleHoo
The US is the NTSC format, they will not play on the PAL format that we have here on Australian consoles.
In regards to wholesale, it's an area I may be able to personally assist with, however I am talking genuine wholesale, not drop shopping. Feel free to drop me a PM if you like, give me some details on what it is you are looking for and the volume you are wanting to purchase in.
NTSC consoles can be used anywhere, but they can only play NTSC games. In regards to selling in the Australian market, I know I see a lot of NTSC games listed here, but I'm unsure if the sellers are catering for a demand or just hoping to score some easy sales from buyers who don't know that the games won't play on PAL.
I suspect the later, although you can have the PAL consoles modded to play the NTSC format, so perhaps their market as the NTSC games are far cheaper than PAL
I wouldn't personally think that the market for an actual NTSC console here would be that great at all, but that's just my opinion.
In regards to wholesale buying, you would be looking at a spend of around 5000-6000K for tier 4 pricing, and of course there are 3 tiers above that, so you can imagine what the spend limit is to obtain genuine wholesale prices
No problems at all Maureen,
Tier 4 is essentially the bottom floor in the wholesale games/consoles market. It's the base price they will sell to you for, then the more you spend, the larger the order, you start getting better wholesale prices as you move up through the tiers.
I haven't checked for a while, but I know tier pricing (the absolute best prices) came in at around a 10k spend per month. You won't get genuine wholesale pricing on single units, in fact wholesalers won't even establish an account for you.
You would be more looking at drop shippers if we are talking about single unit purchases. You can send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org and the team will do their best to find you good supplier leads for drop shipping.
