I was very interested in this. I decided against it. Some of the posts from supposedly different people where very similar:
"...no one had landed Walmart, although my products wouldn't fit their anyway."
"No big retailers (mine wouldn't fit in WalMart), mostly specialty shops."
Someone noted that they seemed similar to WiseRep. I believe there's a link there based on some of their server records.
Maybe it was presumptuous of me but I sent the following email to Kevin, never got a response.
Thanks for getting back. Frankly the idea is very intriguing from my personal observation and also from the interest of people found in links from Google. However you guys appear to have reputation issues:
And there were a few others.
I can see with a little work that there are a lot of very similar IP's between wiserep and intostores specifically the name servers and the mx server. So while they might not know for sure, peoples guess about the relation seems accurate. Unfortunately, your google results are going to be very hard for you to overcome without some proven, third-party testimonials of success.
Again, the idea behind the site seems right but I'm only willing to invest my personal time and the $29 monthly fee. If you want someone who will upload their products, work with your system to try and get them into stores aggressively and then proactively promote that success (presuming it is successful) as a small wholesaler then I'm interested but again only for the$29 monthly fee.
Please advise if this is something IntoStores wants to pursue.
