Setting Up with Distributors and Vendors

If you're going to sell items over the Internet, in all likelihood you'll be reselling items rather than selling original items you produced. That means one of the biggest start-up challenges will be building a list of distributors and vendors that will provide you with the items you want to resell.

Building a list of distributors and vendors is very hard work. First, you'll have to identify the distributors and vendors. Turn to the Internet and your local library. Look for trade-oriented magazines and Web sites as well as vendors that specifically make the items you want to stock. From there you'll need to work the phones a bit and find out the names and numbers of the distributors to work with. If a vendor goes direct, you may want to deal with them that way.
