Hi all,

New to this soo looking for a bit of assistance. I am looking at coffee makers and associated goods (particularly the stovetop percolators) but cant find a distributor in Australia. Does anyone have any ideas. The ones in the directories only touch on them. I am looking at the better quality (not top end but definitely not el-cheapo).

In this vein does anyone use stores like Victoria's Basement to source goods for re-sale? They have good quality at highly reduced prices but sell retail. I figure they might be a good place to buy items in the medium to short term prior to finding a wholesaler or dropshipper. Im not sure how they'd take someone purchasing multiple numbers of the same item.

Cheers

You can also check out these non-SaleHoo suppliers -

They look safe enough to deal with and they may offer wholesale options but please be careful as these are suppliers I've found outside our directory so I cannot vouch for their safety.

I've just been to Victoria's Basement's website and I do think they have very nice selection of products. Have you tried checking with them to see if there's any chance they could sell wholesale?

Thanks for the quick reply Satya.

The sites appear to be more for the retail buyer (which isnt such a bad thing). OO.com is more of an online department store that has limited stock across a mutlitude of areas and in coffee makers appears focussed on the lower end of the market. The other 2 may be an option although catererswarehouse webpage appears broken.

The outside sites are more commercial end coffee makers as opposed to for home use.

At the moment I am starting out (like many others) and I guess doing my due diligence on whether on-line selling is profitable enough to be worthwhile, especially competing against the larger sellers. I'm not looking at replacing my income but am looking at slowly building up a business that for starters becomes funds self-sufficient, but could end up being an alternative income to then have a more freed up lifestyle (work to live, not live to work). If it gets beyondthis then fantastic.

It just seems so far, like many other things, being Australian is being behind the 8-ball in this sort of arena. There doesnt seem to be the suppliers (for the newbie at least) that are available in the larger countries.

Please dont take this as being negaitve, just appears to be a barrier to starting out in Oz.

I'll have a bit more of a look into Victoria's Basement.

Thanks again,

Mick

Hi Mick,

I understand, it did take me quite a bit to find suppliers so I know it isn't easy. OO.com may look like a retail website but they do drop ship and offer discounts on bulk orders. And Link hidden: Login to view works fine in my end. Anyway, got you a couple more, check out -

Good luck with Victoria's Basement and should you consider using suppliers from other countries, let me know and I'll make you a list.
