Q&A about wholesale audio club:
Q: How is Wholesale Audio Club different from all the other wholesale companies on the internet?
A: The answer is simple. Most of the other "wholesale offers" online are available to the general public. No other wholesale service we know of connects your business directly with real local master multi-line wholesale distributors that only sell to businesses. This saves you delivery time and shipping costs which will increase your companies profits. Drop ship wholesale master distributors are also available to drop ship your orders.
With these other so called wholesale companies, there is no separation between wholesaler, dealer, and the end user (consumer). Your company needs real wholesale only distributors who currently supply your local stereo shops. If you have a brick and mortar location, we will connect you with manufacturers direct as well. Get ready to be happy when real distributors call and email you.
Real wholesalers will only sell B2B Drop Shipping ( Business to Business ) Any company offering "wholesale deals" that does not require a business license or tax i.d. from you is not a real wholesale distributor. You have to ask yourself, "Do I want to buy from a discounted retailer or a real master wholesale-distributor? The answer is obvious, with Wholesale Audio Club, we only sell wholesale packages to licensed re-sellers. All 145+ wholesale electronics warehouses within our network require a business license or tax i.d. from all members. There is zero public access. This keeps the integrity in place between the true wholesale supplier and the dealer. Your customers cannot buy from your distributors.
Q: Do I have to have an actual store front in order to join Wholesale Audio Club?
A: No. Among those that purchase the Wholesale Packages are small to mid sized companies selling via mail order, swap meets, internet, as well as small retail locations. It is not 100% necessary to have an actual store.
Q: I have seen offers online about a CD with 10,000 wholesale sources. What is this all about?
A: If you need wholesale sources for beans, shoe laces, hay, or bulk fabrics.... the CD is for you. If you are seeking true wholesale distributors supplying consumer electronics products to dealers only,.... then you need Wholesale Audio Club. Basically the "cheap" wholesale CD's out there are garbage. Plus, they will sell these CD's to anyone. The general public has access to the same information.
Q: What are the minimum order requirements with the club and the other 145+ wholesale distributors?
A: Minimum order requirements vary by distributor. Usually the minimum order is between 50.00 to 200.00
Q: Are there volume discounts offered for large orders?
A: Yes. All distributors offer volume discounts. Usually additional discounts apply to orders exceeding 1,000 to 2,500 dollars. Ask your sales rep for details on large volume order discounts and free shipping opportunities.
Q: Once my company joins wholesale audio club, do we order everything through you or do we contact the distributors directly?
The distributors closest to you will
contact your company directly. Your company will place orders directly with the
master-distributor. Save on shipping charges by ordering from distributors close
to you. There may even be a warehouse in your city. (or within a 2 state radius
in some cases)
Q: What are some of the brands we can expect to find through this Wholesale Package ?
A: Alpine, Kenwood, Clarion, JVC, Kicker, Rockford Fosgate, Sony, MTX, JL Audio, Pioneer, Audiobahn and many many more. In total, about 30,000 electronics products are available from over 500 top brand names.
Q: Are there territory restrictions involved?
A: Yes, in some cases there are territory restrictions. However, there are over 20 master importers & distributors that sell the top name brands with little or no restrictions. Simply ask Rob to help you find what you are looking for. We cannot guarantee any particular brand due to possible territory restrictions. For the most part, most of the big major brands are available.
Q: Can wholesale audio club help me with marketing/sales ideas & strategies?
A: Yes. This is a big part of our consulting service. Once you are a member, you can call Rob Ferguson anytime during normal business hours and he will be happy to assist you in any way he can.

Q: Does wholesale audio club provide drop shipping?
A: We provide drop shipping "connections" direct with the local master wholesale distributors warehouses. This is better than finding one connection. Much better.

A: On average, ( selling online or mail order ) the average profit margin for components is between 25 to 50% ( to be competitive) with accessories, the profit margin runs between 50 and 300% For instance, a good set of RCA Cables can run 18 to 35 bucks retail.
