PostSubject: Distribution Question.   Sun Sep 23, 2012 9:20 pm

I' m planning on opening an online fingerboarding distribution apart from my company, but my question is: if you want to sell products such as Berlinwoods,Blackriver-Ramps or Flatface Wheels do you have to contact brr or the other companies asking if you could distribute their products or can you just buy it from them and sell them on your website? Tips are appreciated.

I would really look into this idea of yours a little more if you don't even know how to contact the people you plan to talk to about distributing their items. I'm not even trying to be rude right now it just seems like a very basic step. How long have you been looking into this? To answer your question though you email the supplier about distributing their products and they sell to you in a bulk price usually. But with seeing how prepared you are I doubt they will give you a price since you don't seem to have a website,logo or even a basic concept of running a distribution. you already seem to be making the most common mistake which would be opening your "company" up way too early. remember you only get one first impression.

nah you just buy from BRR and sell them at the same price you bought them for, it's a pretty good get rich quick scheme happy

You could also just find pictures of Blackrivers products on google and pretend to sell them.

Please make use of the Quick Questions thread.

Mikkel has already provided a good, serious answer to this question.

I think I'll put an end to the silly responses and lock the thread now.
