| About our Directory :
anyone purchase products from the sources listed in the directory?
Yes - Although our directory
was primarily developed for those either already in or wishing to
start their own trading business, many suppliers listed on our database
are happy to deal and sell directly to consumers that are simply
looking for quality bargains and products for their own use. We
recommend that you check with each supplier who they are willing
to trade with. Another point to note is that some wholesalers will
only deal with registered companies and in such cases they ask for
specific legal information such as company registration documents.

Australia Wholesalers is an ONLINE
members service where members can access our directory,
and our directory is updated regularly on a weekly basis!

that can become outdated very quickly. With our service
not only do you get access to all updates as and when they
occur, you also benefit from other resources and very frequent
updates we provide at no further cost to you. Additionally
many wholesalers visit our protal on a very regular basis
and submit their data and products. We are the only Australian
wholesale directory which caters both the suppliers and
the buyers bringing them on to a single platform.

competitors we don't offer reprint or resale rights. This way, we

cheap are the products?
The purpose of our directories is
to help you locate some of the best deals in Australia -
by providing a list of suppliers where you can buy products
at substantially lower prices than retail. A number of products
are even sold at up to 90% off the normal high street price.
In many cases, our listed australian suppliers offer products
that are brand-new. In other cases, they specialise in clearance
goods, ex-rental stock, catalogue returns, discontinued
models, etc. - and the market for these types of products
is very attractive.
It is important to note
that we do not claim to offer you the 'cheapest' prices around -
as prices fluctuate on a daily basis it would be impossible to make
this kind of proposition. The prices listed on our website are merely
indicative and relate to a sample of products that a number of suppliers
have sold in the past. However, the market is immense, there are
thousands of suppliers in Australia for a wide variety of products,
and unit prices will always fluctuate depending on market conditions
and customer demand.
What we can say is that,
based on our own research, our nationwide Australian Wholesaler
lists are current and offer you some of the best deals around.
Sourcing quality suppliers is not easy - it takes, time,
money and effort to get the right contacts. We have done
the hard work for you - by compiling over thousands of Australian
wholesale sources into a single easy-to-use website. We
have visited several trade exhibitions, markets, fairs,
and have researched several trade journals to bring these
contacts to you. Its now time for you to benefit from our
[ Top ]
you provide a product / stock price list?
It would be impossible for us to
keep track of every suppliers stock and price list - especially
in markets that are volatile. Our service provides the suppliers
contact details - with reference to the types of products
they sell. Although within our members area a wholesale
products directory is available, where suppliers can list
their products and price lists. Also our data entry staff
tries to extract offers from various wholesalers and present
them to you, hwoever our main focus is always to bring most
recent and fresh wholesale suppliers contact details to
our members and this is our expertise which differentiates
us from our competition.
Partly what we ask from
you or in other words your role is to contact the suppliers directly
to enquire about stock and prices when you need them. What we can
say with confidence is that suppliers listed on our database not
only offer great discounted prices but they also pride themselves
on offering great customer service too.
[ Top ]
is the minimum order quantity?
Most of the listed wholesale suppliers
in our database do not have any specific limits on level
of minimum order - therefore it makes it easy for those
that are simply wishing to use our directory to source single-item
bargains or low-volume stock for their own use.
However, as our directory
was primarily developed as a business information resource,
some of the listed suppliers do have restrictions and deal
directly with the trade customer only. Nonetheless, many
of these sources have very low minimum orders levels or
price limits for trade supplies - from as little as 3-4
items and around $50 to $100. In such cases we recommend
incorporating your own company or operating as a sole trader.

Although anybody can use Australia
Wholesalers to find bargains, our service has been especially
developed for those who want to develop a totally legitimate,
viable and profitable trading business. This business simply
involves purchasing Top Quality Branded Products at rock
bottom prices - and reselling them for clear profits. In
fact, thousands of people all over Australia are amassing
solid & steady incomes by trading products such as those
offered by suppliers listed in our wholesale directory on
many trading portals like ebay.
A trading business -
i.e. selling quality consumer goods for profit - is a particularly
attractive business opportunity for a number of good reasons:
run it at your own pace ... The business can be run
on a part-time or full-time basis - simply build & grow it
at your own pace. It can easily be run from home to bring in extra
cash - or you could establish it as a full-time business venture
that brings in your main income. The choice is yours.

details of wholesalers you require to get going.

rapidly develop your weekly revenue to reach many hundreds (or
even thousands) of dollars quite easily.
Profit Potential ... The products you will be dealing
with are the same as those you'll find in High Street Stores.
The key difference is that you'll only be buying them at a fraction
of the retail price! This means you can easily resell them by
undercutting high street stores
Brand Products ... Many of the products sold by suppliers
listed within our directory are top quality, well known brands
that everyone has heard of - e.g. Sony, Panasonic, Hugo Boss,
Raleigh, IBM, Hotpoint, Hoover, Phillips, Nike .. to name just
a few. Once again, being familiar 'household names' , this makes
your selling them so much easier.
Customer Demand ... Many of the best deals involve
buying ex-rental, ex-catalogue or liquidation stock, or products
that are close to being discontinued. However, all goods are still
in good working order as new and, being top quality brand-name
merchandise, the fact is that they still attract very high customer
got nothing to lose! ... Even if you find this business
is not for you - you can always use the directory to buy the products
for your own personal use. The savings you make will easily pay
for the purchase of our membership many times over! - (Note: Not
all wholesalers deal with individual customers)

you to resources that will inform you about everything you need
to know to set yourself up as a trader so that you can benefit from

The level of investment
you need, to start a trading business will obviously be dependent
on what products you choose to trade with, where you source them
from, and how many items you decide to buy in your transaction.
However there is no specific limit on initial investment. Obviously,
the greater the volume you acquire - the greater the discount most
suppliers will offer. Its worth noting, that many successful traders
have started their business ventures by stocking only 2-3 products
at a time!
