I've been selling my alternative clothing and accessories retail online for a while, and am now looking into selling them wholesale. I've looked at the various apps on shopify that would allow me to have a wholesale option on my website, but these are expensive and don't really suit my needs. So, I went back to look at my competitors, they don't seem to have wholesale websites from what I can see, is it not normal to do so?
I also tried looking back at some old research I had done into the topic earlier, but my links etc were outdated and not working anymore. How would companies take payment without a webiste? Or do they just have a private website that I'm not seeing and would have to request details to access? And without a website there is no SEO so how do they get word out their to retailers about their existence? Other than trade fairs.
