Paintball Dealer Quuestion

My dad and I are starting a pro shop in my town and starting an e-comerance(sp?) site. But i have a question how do dealers get the products straight from the manufacuters like you would for smart parts or diablo ? or do they get everything from a central dealer like nps (wich i dont want to do).
thanks
Morph

You can check with individual dealers, most of their homepages have wholesale or dealer pages, or call them and ask for their accounts department. But unless you're buying on a large scale, NPS is generally what you're stuck with. (A central intermediary, like NPS, or accounts with -every- manufacturer out there...)

Contact the Supplier..

..be it a wholesaler, or a manufacturer. CALL them and tell them what you are doing,(e-site AND a brick and mortar) supply your biz license, tax exempt number, and naked pics if they want. The point is, if you can get hooked up DIRECT, do what ever they ask. I have experiance in this,(auto parts dealer) if the source asks for something, PROVIDE it.

Later,

generally you need a buisness license and tax ID number, and then you open an account with them. The more you buy, the lower the cost per item becomes. For example, you buy 5 cockers at 300 a peice ($1500), 10 at 250 a piece ($2500), and so forth. You in turn then turn around and sell it at whatever you want. But in order to do this, you must show that you are an actual store.
