Pricing/Minimum Order: There is no minimum order, and management says a customer who orders one piece gets the same treatment as one that places a $10,000 order. Wholesale pricing ranges from as low as 20 cents a unit, to as much as $40 a unit for a special collection. The average wholesale for a DVD is $3, and most wholesale in the $2.50 range.
Literature: The complete catalog is on the company's website, which is updated in real time. There is a seven person web department, headed by Peter Martin, which integrates warehousing, the website, inventory control and order processing. As a result, the second an order is placed, the online catalog is updated, so there is never a fear of out of stock. With one click, an order goes to the warehouse and the website is automatically updated.
Special Features: Orders are shipped the day they are placed, except on weekends. The company, founded by CEO Anthony Findley, has been in business since 1988 and has sales in excess of $1 million annually. Approximately 50 percent of all orders are placed over the Internet, and the others are called in, where they are served by a knowledgeable staff member. The company will help a retailer put together an assortment of top sellers for different markets and clientele. It is in the process of developing premixed assortments, prepackaged for different kinds of stores, such as religious, youth, resort and others.
Management Says: "We have devoted a lot of time, effort and expertise to developing our state of the art integrated website and inventory control system, in order to assure our retailer customers of failsafe, quick delivery. We're a team that also takes pride in maintaining a huge selection, offered at prices that assure retailers a hefty profit margin." -Dale Brown, senior developer and head of marketing.
