Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Wholesale2b is an online dropshipping website. They were advertising a 7 day free trial to use their service where you can create your own website and sell their product online. After the 7 day trial, it cost $39.99/mo to use their service. When registering for the trial, they ask for your credit card info. Which I understood because if you don't cancel your account after the 7 day trial, they charge your credit card. However after the registeration was complete, I tried to log in but I could not log in. I tried numerous times but was not able to. So I checked my emails, but there wasn't even a welcome email as you usually receive. I clicked on contact us, but it takes you to the log in page. There is no customer service number you can call to request cancellation of your account. I advise you.. do NOT try this service!!

Copy of Emails from this Company. I agree.. They are SCAMMERS

AUTHOR: Elegant Bedding and Electronics - ()

I purchased one of their website plans. It was a nightmare dealing with this company.   I worked and worked and worked trying to make this site profitable.   On their ad they state they will give you your choice of THREE VENDORS from their numerous suppliers and they will pre-stock your store with these products.. ITS A COMPLETE FARCE.. THey stock your store with VERY FEW of the thousands of products from the vendors.  I chose three vendors and together those three vendors had between 22-23 thousand  products and most of them I cant even find.   They have your store set up with categories such as "8 pc bedding" or "tvs" . .

When you click those tabs there will be only a handful of products in each category.  You have to search the products out in the search engine  by typing VERY SPECIFIC THINGS such as 8pc.   You can't type in 8pc bedding or 8pc bed sets or 8 pc bed sets or bed sets or anything like that you have to type in 8pc  HOW DOES THE CUSTOMER know that?  They don't.. They do NOT stock your store with these products.. I found the same thing in nearly every category.  

The suppliers I was supposed to have had dozens and dozens of TV products listed but when you click the "TV" link in my store you find like 2 or 3 tvs and a handful of adapters and antennas.. ITS A FRAUD.. I had to file with my credit card company.. I Stated ALL the issues directly to the company .. THEY EVEN BLAMED THE SUPPLIERS for the issues stating they didn't show up in the search because the vendors didn't have them listed propertly.. Who's fault is that?  ITS NOT MINE.. I didn't get what I paid for..

They ADMITTED IT then after two weeks of working day and night trying to make it work they told me I could go in and edit the products one by one and "FIX IT" where it would show up/?  Some of these suppliers have TENS OF THOUSANDS of products.. It would be impossible.  It is a MESS.. You don't get a READY TO USE store.. Its a fraud.  They won't give you your money either.  They will make every excuse in the world . Blame the vendors and then try to keep your money.  

I'm filing a complaint with the BBB and the State Attorney GEneral .  This is another one of those SCAMMERS.. They know they have your money and think you can't do anything about it and they have no doubt beat a lot of people like me out of money.. Here is a VERY LONG conversation below that I had with this company where they OPENLY BLAME THE VENDORS / acknowledge the problem and STILL keep my money.. I"ve already looked online.  The complaints are starting to flow in.   These online line company / wholesalers / dropshippers are nothing but frauds.

The products are priced WAY to high to make any money.  The shipping cost is VERY expensive.  Many of the products that they supposedly are selling you at "wholesale" when you google them actually cost more than you can buy them for all over the web.. I spent dozens of hours looking them up one by one and nearly everything I found listed with these companies, including the bedding, is ALREADY BEING SOLD ALL OVER THE NET by the VERY VENDORS supplying to you and selling to you at the same cost or more that they are selling for online.. ITS NOT WHOLESALE ..

It may be drop shipping but the average person wont EVER make any money at it because there are too many site issues, cost. fees, over priced shipping, over priced "whole sale" , over priced site cost , lack of products that you are supposed to have etc etc.   Its ANOTHER scam ..  I wouldn't recommend anyone try to use it unless you have a LOT, LOT, LOT of time on your hands to reprice. pick through, figure out how to navigate this site.  Their store set up is probably THE HARDEST of any I've ever used to try to work with and I've used several.     

 I cant copy the emails to this site for some reason but I have them if you want to read them.   I am also going to file my own compaint and put the emails in using another means.   REMEMBER THIS.  These sites aren't there to make you money.. They are there to make THEM a LOT of money off thousands of us who don't get what we pay for.  They count of the fact that they make money when you prepay.. READ THEIR TERMS BEFORE YOU SIGN UP.   You won't get your money back when you realize that its a big mess that you will have a VERY hard time making money out of.  

They've made sure with all their "DISCLAMIER PROVISIONS" that they are protected and you won't get your money back even when you prove they haven't provided you with what they promise.  I filed with my credit card company and had to prove it to get my money back by their own emails where they  blame the vendors for THEIR LACK OF STOCKING MY STORE as they promise..    They make a LOT of money off of unwary people and vendors.   I copied the store listings / sites / categories / emails to prove what I'm saying is ABSOLUTELY TRUE.  

You won't get 22 thousand products that ANYBODY CAN FIND for the most part.  Your customers can't find them when you can't find them yourself.  Anyway.. Be REAL WARY of ANY of these type companies.  I've tried several and its not easy to make money out of them  .  You cant just buy a store and be in business as they make it sound.  You have to have customers.  You have to have PRODUCT / you have to have suppliers that sell at wholesale or you cant compete . .You have to have shipping cost that are competitive and you have NONE of that with most of these vendors.  

I would NOT do it again for anything in the world.  I will never try another one of them and if you take the time to look all over the net and read , google these companies.. Spend a few hours looking up the complaints on ALL of your web browers , you are going to find that its not worth it and there's a LOT of people who are complaining because they got RIPPED OFF JUST LIKE ME and had to go through hell to even try to get it resolved...

Be aware of dropship website they are crooks!!!

AUTHOR: Nickolaos - (Greece)

Hello, my name is Nikolaos, i have register on at september 2012 because i was looking
for dropshipping business.

This company cooperates with a few dozens suppliers who provides dropshipping plans for resellers
If you visit the website you can see 3 different Plans:
1. eBay Plan for 99.99$/year or 24.99$/month (with this plan you can sell dropship product on ebay)
2. website Plan for 299.99$/year or 39.00$/month (with this plan you have an autoupdate website)
3. datafeed plan for 149.99$/year or 24.99$/month (with this plan you have csv files with products)

First of all i have pay a monthly datafeed Plan (24.99$) and i have ask for an Amazon csv file to import it
in my amazon inventory. I have choose a big supplier with 140.000 products and i have ask for a price markup 20%

I have downloated my first csv file and i have import it in my inventory and i have see this 2 problems:
Problem 1: the inventory was in about 5.000 products and not 140.000 products
Problem 2: i have sell my first product and i have see that the price & wholesale2b fees was higher than my profit

So the next i have ask for a new csv file with 60% markup because with the 20% i have lost money, after that i realise
that i was have the same problem again with some of my products and also nobody buy my products because of the high prices

So i have cancel the datafeed plan and after a few months i have buy the website plan for 299.99$/year
I was believe that with the website plan the prices and the products stock will updates automatically.

The next day i realise that i was have the same problem as Amazon with the prices.
After that i have check the admin panel and this is some of the problems:
1. i do not have an rss feed or any options about that, so i can not autoupdate my facebook & twitter page & also my customers can not informed about any new products

2. i do not have any options about facebook intergration. this is the A & Z to a website advertising
3. i can not also add a favicon in my website. believe me i have a server with 90$/year and unlimited traffic and i have pay those crooks 270$ and i can't even add a favicon in my website.
4. i can not change html or css.
5. i can not change the position of my main page gadgets (not even change the categories to be first in the left side panel)
6. i can not edit the categories menu, i was want the subcategories to be in the categories menu and not in main page.

So clearly i have lost 299.99$ (website plan) + 24.99$ (datafeed plan) = 324.98$

Be aware of those Crooks, before you go there just check the contact us page and you will see that you can only
contacting them by email or support ticket. You will not see any Phone number or fax.
This is a Crooks company and you will loose your money. The customer service replie's after 24 hours without any help.

After the payment they have not provide me any documentation, VAT etc. This is a tax avoiders company.
