Recently launched wholesaleforum.com provides the first impartial forum for online traders to discuss all of their issues and concerns related to the wholesale community. This new service allows ecommerce business people from around the globe to share knowledge and experience with each other, guided by experienced sourcing experts who serve as moderators for the forum.
The Internet has spawned a huge new crop of ecommerce entrepreneurs, people who hope to create a retail business by sourcing products internationally and selling those products to a segment of Internet buyers. The market for selling online is enormous, with retail sales in the U.S. alone at $210 billion in 2009. However, ecommerce is a business model that is still in the formative stages and online business owners face lots of growing pains. Traders complain that it’s difficult to find reliable manufacturers, wholesalers and drop shippers among the sea of offerings posted daily across the Web.
Beyond sourcing, most online traders are suddenly faced with the complexity of moving goods from one country to another, understanding and following complicated customs and tax laws that can vary dramatically by country, and accepting and making payments safely with different currencies in play.
These new Web Entrepreneurs are always on the lookout for information that helps their businesses to be successful. Wholesale forum.com fills this need for information, expertise and support. Membership is free and open to anyone with an interest in the subject. Forums are moderated by experienced traders who have spent years building the path to online enterprise success. Discussion threads on topics such as importing/exporting, shipping, contracts, dropshipping, wholesalers and many categories of products provide the opportunity for new traders to ask questions, experienced traders to give advice, and skilled moderators to guide the discussions and add useful content. Plus, wholesaleforum.com offers space to report scammers, creating an invaluable warning system for those who are sourcing products.
So far, traders seem to like what they read. A recent poster replied to a forum guide on sourcing products from China, saying, “Wow, really, really great post.” Another member responded to a forum administrator posting on scammers’ tricks with “Your posts are the best!”
http://www.Wholesaleforum.com also offers a mechanism for sellers to post selling offers free of charge as a service to its members.
