I currently own and run a wholesale business in Canada, selling imported beauty products. I would like to open a eCommerce for this business.
The issue i am having, is that do not want to steal my clients customers by selling them our products online. On the other hand, i would like to acquire new customers in places I do not have any clients.
So, the idea would be that my retail sales on my eCommerce site would have to pass through my current clients, if they are available in a certain region. If i do not have any clients in that specific region, i would make the sell myself.
I would also like to sell wholesale to my clients in a b2b manner, that regular clients could not have access to without a password or what not.
I know, my business plan seems flawed right now. That is why i am asking for help. I would like to know if any of you guys would have any advice on how to make this eCommerce work for my specific type of business.
Are there any sites that would be better for me to sign up on? Or would it be better to make it from scratch? (I do not have that much knowledge in this matter).
Thank you for your time!
