Pricing

You are responsible for setting your price. As you review the options listed below, you can offer discounts for multiple orders. 

As you are aware, the majority of Wholesale Buyers prefer terms. This can be 25 days from the point of receiving a shipment. You can be protected with a Letter of Credit from the Buyer’s bank. We also offer in-house credit and the ability for you to use your sales receipts and collect early payment against receivables.

Last and most important, the price you set is the trigger to create a sale. Overpriced products will not sell in any market. If you are unsure what your prices should be click here to view daily prices of your items in numerous locations around the US. If you are not offering terms, or P.O. options than you should be offering discounts well below market price for instant payment.
