Purchasing products at a wholesale price will save your business money and allow for a larger profit margin when sold. Requesting a wholesale price list from a company is possible by contacting the companies from which you are interested in purchasing directly using various methods. Many companies today also feature online options to place wholesale orders directly and conveniently.

Incorporate your business by filing the proper legal forms in order to truly have the ability to access legitimate wholesale companies and price lists. Although it is possible to order through wholesale companies directly online and by contacting companies directly, you may not be receiving the entire wholesale price you would if your company were incorporated legally.

Research various companies that manufacture items and material that are relevant to your business and products that you offer. Compare pricing between competing companies as well as companies that supply material needed to create your own products by browsing catalogs and reviewing retail prices.

Browse competitor websites and official catalogs to view various companies own inventory and products in stock that are relevant to your business. This will also present ideas on the types of products and additional items you should stock within your own company.

Contact the company directly by phone, email or online contact form. Some companies feature online wholesale departments specifically for requesting price lists and information regarding wholesale opportunities.

Inform the company of your own business and the types of products you currently sell, as well as those you are interested in stocking in the future. Request a wholesale price list through a phone call or email, depending on your preferred method of contact.

Tips & Warnings

  • You may be asked to supply a business EIN number (Employer ID Number) to verify your business is incorporated before receiving access to wholesale prices, though not all companies will require this before supplying a wholesale price list.
