So I had a store about 2 years ago or so and discontinued it to focus on other things. Now I want to continue this company (under a different name). I have a list of about 20 or so vendors in my niche. The products I will be selling are fairly high end. My issue is, that the first time around, it took me a month or so to get accepted as a dealer by one of these vendors because my store was not established enough, but there is no way to establish the store without a vendor
So my question is, how do you guys go about approaching these vendors prior to establishing your site?
