Until recently the idea of buying food, drink or just about anything else in bulk seemed to be reserved for the larger retailers who are able to negotiate low prices from the manufacturers as well being able to ship and store the products in their warehouse facilities, but things have changed with the increase in online shopping and ordering.
Now almost anyone can go online to either buy or sell their products, but there is an issue here and that is credibility, how do the end-users know that they will be getting what they are paying for? Of course, this has been an issue for as long as people have been buying and selling, but when it comes to bulk food and drink products there are a different set of issues that must be met.
Both buyers and sellers of bulk foods must consider the cost of the product, transportation and storage, as well as any other fees that could be added, so while a product may seem to be a great price, once all of the costs have been calculated, is bulk food and drink buying a good deal?
For the smaller business, the idea of selling in bulk or into a foreign marketplace may seem to be laden with hidden paperwork that goes on to cost time and money, but there is help out there for instance Peeba, a wholesale shopping and marketplace based in Hong Kong.
Peeba offers businesses of all sizes and product categories access to the massive Asian marketplace, it is easy to set up and once the initial process has been completed the seller can showcase products to this massive marketplace where there are literally millions of customers just waiting to source new and exciting products.
In the UK McGrocer are doing the same sort of thing, the McGrocer website not only offers lots of information on bulk food buying and selling, but they also offer food manufacturers the chance to try the online marketplace for free. A seller is able to list up to fifteen products, with images, descriptions and prices to the marketplace, buyers are then able to search for products, contact the seller, buy the product or make an offer. It is easy to set up and of course, the beauty of this free trial is that the sellers have nothing to lose, but everything to gain.
