They come with a guarantee that they have not been recycled and don't exist in current databases. I have a couple of clarifications in t...

Retailer asked for minimum advertising price policy MAPP

After negotiating to get products to some retailers, one retailer (not a large one) that has both a physical store and also sells online asked for a minimum advertising price policy MAPP to ensure the market price of the product. I don't know anything more about a MAPP than from what I read via Google. These are products made entirely in the US for the US market, no drop shipping or importing. ...

But if i have a various suppliers that have sellable items that have many different categories whats wrong with having a one stop solution like Target walmart, Fredmeyer , but on a much smaller scale of course. If i have a website name that is basically all inclusive. Wouldn't this model work ?     Seems like lot of shoppers don't really have much time in browsing si...

Why many buyers require Mandarin when souring in China?

1, Mandarin is easier to negotiate with suppliers in China. Many Chinese salesmen actually does not speak English well. Even usually one English word has different Chinese meaning. It is better to enhance mutual understanding especially on production details. 2, Mandarin can help you to check if this Chinese supplier is good or not. Such as for every Chinese company, there is a government we...
