DO use the internet to research wholesale suppliers. If you live in or around a large city, you may have a local wholesale phone supplier. This is nice, but always compare prices first. You want the best discount. Luckily, the internet makes it easy to do.
DON’T choose the first mobile phone supplier you come across. When performing a standard internet search with the phrase “wholesale cell phones,” you will be linked to many companies. Do not choose the first supplier you come across.
DO closely examine all wholesale suppliers you find online. You want to review all cell phones and accessories sold. Look at the product selection, the wholesale prices, the discount received, shipping costs, and more. Choose the one that enables you to make the largest profit.
DON’T limit yourself to one wholesale phone supplier. You can do business with more than one. If you need to stock a brick and mortar store or an online store, you need a lot of inventory. Shop around to find the best deals. If you must do business with three different wholesale suppliers to find the best deals, do it.
DO target as many customers as possible. When buying wholesale phones, you want to target two types of customers. Those who want affordable phones and those who want the latest technology. With today’s economy, consumers are cutting back on their shopping. That is why affordable phones will always be in demand. Even with the economy, there are those who must have the latest technology and the newest phones. Cater to both types of customers and you increase your profits.
DON’T assume you are getting the best wholesale discount. Many suppliers are good at making a deal seem a lot better than it is. For example, they may have a case of 4 Motorola cell phones originally priced at $250, but now selling for $150. This looks like a good discount, but can you make a profit? That is all that matters.
DO compare wholesale costs will selling prices. Your goal with buying wholesale mobile phones is to make a profit. Luckily, this is easy to determine with a bit of research. Take a wholesale phone, such as the Apple iPhone 3G, look at the wholesale price and determine the cost for each individual phone. Then search for that phone online. What is the average selling price? It should be significantly more than what you pay for the phone.
DON’T pay too much in shipping. A mistake that many wholesale buyers make is not considering shipping costs. These costs cut into your profit, so they should be included in with the wholesale cost of phones. In many cases, there is no way around shipping charges, but lessen their impact by looking for the best deals.
In sort, buying wholesale mobile phones is a great way to resell them for a profit. As long as you use your best judgment and focus on your goal of making money, you should.
