If you are new to the electronics dropshippers industry:
Our staff compiled this new question and answer outline, so the new dealers can brush up on the terms used in our industry.
to get started.
A manufacturer is the maker of the brand. Most
manufacturers of mobile electronics dropshippers reside in China
& Korea. (Although some of the better brands do manufacture here
in the USA)
A: A distributor is a privately owned mass supplier to the dealers. The distributor has massive buying power and stocks each electronics dropshippers item in large quantities.
Most wholesale electronics dropshippers distributors here in the USA sell at the same "dealer price" that the actual manufacturer does. The distributors function is to supply the electronics dropshippers goods at a closer proximity without a price increase to the licensed dealer. Keep in mind, using "will-call" is a way to save $$. Simply search for the distributors in your state after completion of your membership. You will save tons on shipping - by picking up the orders yourself. ( will-call )
are over 145 massive 50,000 SQ Foot wholesale electronics dropshippers
warehouses across the United States. Chances are there are many near you.
Remember, these companies only sell to licensed retailers / dealers /
internet sellers / etc.
A: A drop shipper is a wholesale distributor that is willing to ship to more than 1 location for you. A drop ship distributor will ship anything to anyone, any state.
You pay for the product, they ship it directly to your customer. You never touch the product. This saves on shipping costs, therefore increasing your profit potential.
A: ALL real wholesalers require a valid tax i.d. and or business license from all applicants. Real wholesale distributors will clearly mark their sites and catalogs with
"Wholesale sales only to dealers" A real wholesale distributor will never sell to the general public. Your wholesale sources remain confidential.
A: A factory rep is the guy who calls on the dealers for the manufacturers. He sells and trains the dealers. All manufacturers have "reps"
We list all 12 volt reps here in the United States within the main Wholesale Audio Club Logged In Section. You will only need to deal with the factory rep when you buy direct and not through a wholesale distributor.
Q: What are trade shows?
A trade show is the place where all of the
manufacturers show their new products to the dealers and the wholesale
distributors. Each year there are several confidential trade shows
for the consumer electronics dropshippers industry. You must be a licensed dealer at
least,.. to attend these shows. We of course list all of the best trade
shows for the consumer electronics dropshippers industry within the logged in section of the
main club site. You will have access within a few hours of activation.
Call and reserve your hotel room for the winter consumer electronics dropshippers show!
See ya there!
Trade schools are schools / colleges / that
provide education on specific trades. Of course we list all of the trade
schools for mobile electronics dropshippers here in the USA
- within the logged in section of the main club site. There are many schools
providing classes on mobile electronics dropshippers / car audio installation and sales.
A retailer is a dealer / outlet that
sells to anyone. Examples include: Circuit
City, Best Buy, The good guys, Audio Express etc.....
see " what is a retailer" above.
A: A master distributor is also known as a "parallel distributor" These companies carry double quantities as well as have the "harder to locate brands"
master distributor can also be simply a "large scale"
distributor. They buy in massive 60 Ft. Container lots and offer amazingly
low wholesale prices. Wholesale Audio Club uncovers the real
master-wholesalers of car and some home audio here in the United States. We make
it easy for the small dealer to plug in to where the big boys buy their goods.
Get ready to take your business to the next level and beyond.
E-Bay is an auction house. Small dealers
and private sellers list their goods for sale to the highest bidder. Our
members have much more success selling through custom web sites, although if
done right, you can make thousands on e-bay. Its all about
finding nitch products. It can be done,....however, we suggest
selling through small shops, and custom web sites made for selling audio.
The flea market, local high schools..... are also great places to sell
audio & electronics dropshippers.
Billions are spent each year on consumer electronics dropshippers.
Do you know anyone who doesn’t own a stereo? Why not sell things people
need and use. Everyone uses audio & electronics dropshippers items!
Plus, you love electronics dropshippers too right? Go ahead and put some of
those profits in your pocket.
Net-30 is where you buy products on credit
throughout the month and the distributor sends you a bill for the entire
months purchases. N-30 = net 30 days
COD means Cash On Delivery.
UPS offers COD services for mail order dealers who will ship the
oder to the customer and have them pay UPS upon delivery of the item. Then
UPS sends you the check or money order.
see ( Net-30 ) above. An open
account is where you buy on credit from the distributor. You
will be invoiced monthly for your purchases. You must apply
for any and all net-30 or open terms.
Pre-Paid shipping means that you have reached the
desired volume or dollar amount to qualify for the order to be shipped
"Pre-Paid Freight" the distributor is paying for the shipping.
Usually this happens at the $2,500 level.
A: A container is a "Railway Container" these are the big shipping containers you see on the railroad lines. Large volume distributors and retailers order in this way.
are 40 Foot and 60 Foot rail containers.
A: A skid is a pallet of merchandise found in a wholesale warehouse. Usually a skid will be shrink wrapped and ready for transport. If you can, its best to buy "a skid" at a time from the larger wholesalers. You will receive discounts based on volume orders. Every wholesaler will offer additional discounts based on larger volume quantities.

the larger the quantity.

Purchase order means to place an order for purchase.

to be filled by the various wholesale distributors.

number assigned to the purchase order for record keeping by the stereo
shop and the supplier.
RMA = Return Merchandise
Authorization It is customary to receive a RMA reference
number from your supplier prior to sending any merchandise back for repair
Most all wholesalers / distributors &
manufacturers require a RMA prior to acceptance of your return. If
you send something back without a RMA, its likely it won’t be processed.
A tax id is a number that is assigned to
you by the federal government. This number gives you the right to buy at
wholesale with no sales tax.
