First of all, please note that there are unsuspecting businesses with fraudulent and illegitimate transactions, just like in any other business, you need to be aware of those. Here is a checklist we have created here at Wholesale Mall to avoid scam wholesale businesses:

  • Do they provide real contact information in their website? Check that they have an address in their website, telephone numbers, etc. A great tip is to ask for the address and check yourself if they are who they say they are, they should have some sort of business premises. Software like Google Earth will allow you to verify this. If at this point, you find something suspicious, avoid doing business with them.
  • How did you find them? If you found the wholesale store through a reputable wholesale directory is a big plus, as those websites are usually checked manually by an editor to guarantee quality businesses only.
  • What Payment methods do they Accept? Make sure they specify every option available.
  • How is the delivery? Make sure to ask if the wholesale products are going to be sent to you directly from their stock, or if their supplier is going to send you the products. If they cannot answer to your questions about the delivery policies, I personally wouldn’t deal with them.

We know that buying wholesale products could be risky, but always remember: Research, use secure methods of payment, and you will be safe from scam sites and you’ll get top quality wholesale products.
