First of all, I want you know how to identify a real wholesaler, then you will know how to get a real wholesaler. Right? This is a really simple step, and in the previous installment, we touched upon this topic. As I mentioned, no real wholesale supplier can or will sell to the general public. For this reason, they must have proof that you are a real business owner before they can do business with you.
A real wholesale distributor will REQUIRE that you fill out an application and provide them with proof of your Federal and State Tax ID. If they do not ask you for this information, they are not a wholesale supplier. It's that simple. One step and you'll know if they are a real wholesaler or if they're just masquerading.
You should really do your research before doing business with any company that doesn't pass this test. In most cases, you should avoid doing business with these types of businesses altogether. There are a few exceptions, and we'll touch upon those in a later edition of this ecourse.
