How do I go about getting suppliers for consumer

Customer Question

How do I go about getting suppliers for consumer electronics? Right now I get a lot of my stuff from liquidation.com or costco but both are hit and miss. I would like to sell new and current items at a reasonable profit margin. I got lucky once and was able to get 15 PS4s and 27 car subwoofers and sold everything in a day and a half at a good profit.

Dear Customer,

Could you please provide me with more details such as where is your business located? What exactly do you sell? What is the nature of your business? Plus, any other information that you think will help me to help you?

Kindest regards,

Thank you for your response. I sell consumer electronics (game consoles, cell phone and accessories, TVs, computers, laptops and car audio for the most part. Im located in maryland and sell face to face as well as on amazon. Most of my business comes from word of mouth which Im very happy with. Im able to offer customers financing through a 3rd party. I have plenty of space for inventory. Despite an inconsistent inventory I have a large number of return customers in several states and a few in other countries. If theres anything I have forgotten please let me know.

Dear Customer,

That is all great information to have. Please give me just a moment to find other suppliers for you. Some you may already know since you appear to be experienced with your business. I will do my best to find an exhaustive list of suppliers for you.

Kindest regards,

Donna

P.S. This should take a few moments.

I appreciate the list but Im looking for distributors of consumer electronics. Liquidation sites and resellers cant offer the price point Im looking for. I did see what seemed like distributors on that list but it was for electronic component parts like circuit boards.

Dear Customer,

You would really need to go through that list. At your payout, I cannot do that for you. If you are looking for premium service for me to find exact distributors for you and to examine those sites above in order to refine them - and they are distributors, then I will make you an offer for the added work.

Hello

Do you still need any help on this?, kindly update me on this , thanks.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I do. I really need suppliers for name brand consumer goods (game console, cell phones and accessories, tvs, computers, etc). Ive been looking but only come accross wholesale websites or liquidation sites. A reseller cant offer the products at the price point a distributor or manufacturer can.
Expert:  Jawwaad Ahmed replied 1 month ago.

You need to purchase the goods from supplier? or you want to sell these goods to retailers?

Visit this link:- http://www.alpine-asia.com/

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Thats a company I would like to buy from but thats not a supplier site. I called alpine before and got ran in circles. I need people I can buy in bulk from and resell in my store. Im looking for the contact info of distributors.
Expert:  Jawwaad Ahmed replied 1 month ago.

But if you buy from distributor then you need pay more as compare to buying directly from original company because distributor will also take their profit, if still you need distributor then let me know, thanks.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
If I can buy directly from the manufacturer then I would love to. A lot of companies told me they cant sell direct because of agreements with distributors. It kind of sounds the best way to go about it is to just contact manufacturers and ask them how to buy in bulk from them. Am I wrong?
Expert:  Jawwaad Ahmed replied 1 month ago.

For this you have ask each manufacturer because every manufacturer has their own policy and kindly visit this website and provide feedback, thanks.
