Wholesale Central's improved product search

Nov 7, 2011

Wholesale Central's Improved Product Search Dramatically Benefits Buyers and Sellers, the top-ranked business-to-business directory of wholesale general merchandise suppliers, today announced the launch of a substantial improvement to their Product Search feature. The upgraded Product Search makes it easier than ever for wholesale buyers to find the products they are looking for, contact suppliers directly, and make their purchases quickly.

Scott Sumner, CEO of Wholesale Central's parent company, Sumner Communications, notes the many benefits of the enhanced search. "The improved search algorithm delivers more relevant results, while the new design makes it faster and easier for wholesale buyers to contact the supplier or visit their website to make a purchase.  remains at the technical forefront in delivering the most buyer friendly and relevant results across the entire B2B Internet landscape, as it has since 1996."  Wholesale Central does not take a commission on sales, which allows suppliers to sell at the lowest possible prices and provides wholesale merchandise buyers with the best deals.

Now, when a buyer conducts a product search on, the results are grouped by supplier. Up to five of the best matching products for each supplier are displayed, followed by a link to view all matches for that supplier. Buyers are now able to quickly scan the best results from the leading wholesale suppliers, and each product is linked to the supplier's website where it can be purchased directly. Wholesale Central also displays the supplier's phone number in the product search results, in response to requests from buyers who wish to pick up the phone and contact the supplier immediately. There is no charge for wholesale buyers to use the Wholesale Central Product Search. currently features more than 600,000 items from over 1,400 independent suppliers, and serves over half a million wholesale buyers each month. Its official publication, Web Wholesaler, reaches thousands of retailers, wholesalers, distributors, manufacturers, liquidators, and buyers of wholesale merchandise in print monthly. Based in Bethel, CT, Sumner Communications has been the leading publisher of general merchandise trade magazines, directories and websites for over 25 years.
