This deserves a big WAHHHHHHH..
Basically, the complaint is that the distro is being pressured by a larger customer to make you raise your prices so they can make more money. Whether you realize it or not, this is all spawned by your competition.
If you do 1 million in sales, but another competitor does 10 mil in sales, they have more power with the distro than you, and will do anything to squash you so they can get your sales. That's life, that's business. We deal with it every day.
If it really bothers you that much (and you don't want to play by the rules), buy direct from the manufacturer....or another distributor.
It amazes me how much effort home based business owners put in to selling stuff at cost.
