Product sourcing companies and suppliers traditionally market their products and services by word of mouth between their customers and have scarcely exploited the potential of the internet to expand their customer base and popularity. Consequently retailers and startups seeking wholesale sources to fulfill their product sourcing needs have been the ones at the suffering end. Business owners who have been wasting time and resources searching for wholesale sources are finally discovering a new way to locate and contact wholesalers in the UK through the online internet medium.
A new website providing a consolidation service for UK-based wholesalers has recently been announced. Wholesale-Pages provides a directory listing of suppliers, wholesalers, dropshippers and distributors not just to retail outlets, but also to individuals seeking bargains.
The B2B portal was developed in late 2004 and since its launch it has been a great success in UK and has served over 10,000 members who belong to various industries. Future plans are to expand the scope of the service to make it an online meeting hub for wholesalers, retailers and startups where they will be exchanging leads, ideas and information with each other.
About Wholesale-Pages: http://www.wholesalepages.co.uk
Wholesale-Pages provide a service to both suppliers and customers by maintaining a searchable database, updated multiple times monthly of UK-based wholesale companies, accessible to customers all over the globe. The database is composed of over 7000 UK and 4000 US wholesalers, surplus, liquidated and clearance stock suppliers and distributors. The nominal subscription fee provides access to this database and directory and helps maintain the 100% uptime on the data servers.
Wholesale Pages is maintained and updated by a dedicated research team who are always on the look for fresh new leads. The portal is equipped with a trade offers section where wholesalers frequently submit their special product offers for the members.
Advertising options at reasonable cost are available for the wholesalers and they can also list their services in the directory free of any cost.
