I am trying to check my ego at the door. I am very curious about this. I requested information from a supplier and they want me to send them pictures of my store, among other things.
Not that it would be difficult to do this, but I have never had anyone ask for this (send pictures). (Here is where the ego check comes in) I really don't NEED to carry these products, so I don't like feeling like I am auditioning. Either we are doing business, or we aren't. If I wanted to audition and prove myself, then I'd get a job.
Plus the email address I used is from the company's domain so if they really wanted some of this info, all they had to do was look. I don't mind answering a few basic questions, giving resale form, whatever- the basic things that people ask for.
But I am not used to jumping through hoops in order to spend my hard earned money. Is this normal or am I overreacting? I am not trying to be a jerk. I am just confused.
