Be sure to project it out for him. If he can see benefit of working with you even though it causes extra work for him, you can be successful in making a deal.
You could offer him 20% of profit from sales of his products. For example you could show him that you project to make at least $100 profit from each product, and you expect to sell 40 of them per month. The $4000 a month means an extra $800 per month in his pocket. You still make a nice $3200 profit for month in this example.
On top of that, he will be ordering more products from his supplier and may be eligible for a higher price break from them. This way, his reward for effort to work with you, is making money on both sides.
There are many benefits you can offer your potential supplier, but no matter how you look at it, main thing it comes down to is MONEY. What’s in it for your potential supplier to do business with you? If can you show him that, you have a better chance of making a deal with him and starting your online sales.
NOTE: When looking for suppliers around your city, don’t go trying to impress big stores with your $800 or even $3,000 extra income per month proposal. Try going to little stores that are looking to expand their business, they are ones that are usually more open to new opportunities.
The big stores are making hundreds of thousands of dollars per month in profits, so an extra couple of thousand would probably not impress them least bit.
So now you see that by thinking outside box, you open door to many possibilities and increase your ability to make money online with your products.
