I am contacting a manufacturer to request pricing, etc... for wholesale product that I want to retail. I have a list of questions I would like answered before I make an investment in this product. I am hoping some of you can help me ensure that I am covering all of the bases here. Any and all feedback is welcome.
My List so far:
- Brick and Mortar retail front required?
- Can I purchase directly from manufacturer?
- Or is distributor required?
- If so who?
- Minimum order (qty or dollar ammount)?
- At what price points/quantity do you offer an escalation in discount?
- Other incentives for repeat orders and/or sales volume from my business?
- Marketing "partnership" programs offered?
- Order fullfillment
- How qucikly can I expect delivery?
- Prefered carriers?
- How are backorders handled?
- In the event that it is necessary, will you drop ship to my customer?
- Can I arrange for pickup and tranport of product?
