Amazon Wholesale Sourcing

Dillon Carter has made good money building an Amazon wholesale sourcing business alongside just finishing his college degree. He managed to do that because Dillon identified the key bottleneck in his business: managing the relationships with wholesale suppliers in a scaleable way.

To deal with this, Dillon and his co-founder developed in-house CRM software, Vendrive,  which they have since made available to other Sellers on Amazon who source wholesale.

Today Dillon shares with us the basics of his take on the Amazon wholesale sourcing model.
